Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean with Guarantee?

If we produce the complete project from Strategy/Concept Development to Post-Production, which we call the “Done for YOU production” we fine-tune the final versions until you get the outcome you expect. And by that we don't mean the quality of the video, but rather the online results, viewing ratings, click rates etc.  We don't stop delivering until you achieve your goal.

What does Video Production involve?

Video production consists of four key phases: Strategy + Creative Development, Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production. We can help out in every phase, or in the ones you need.

Why do I need a professional Video Production?

We could give you many reasons why you need a professional video production, but a video agency brings expertise that isn't easily learned overnight. These skills include content strategy, concept creation,  lighting, shooting, audio, directing, editing, animating – the list goes on and on. With expertise also comes experience – experience with what to do when things go wrong. Experience with quick-turn around projects.

Do you have any Retainer Packages?

Yes we have. We have various options with Monthly, Quarterly and Year Packages and different payment options as well. Please check HERE for more detailed information.

What do you need from us to start the Production?

It really depends on you as a customer, but as a starting point we’ll arrange a face-to-face meeting or ask you to fill out a short briefing document to help us understand the project requirements. From there you can have as much or as little input into the scripting, filming and editing as you’d like. In any case we’ll keep you informed at every step of the process.

How much does a Video Production cost?

This depends on what kind of production you are looking for. Is it a simple Interview style video that can be done in-house or is it a full blow Commercial over several days. In general we can say, that the price range starts at CHF 1'900.00 without a limit to the max. All depending on your needs according to the content strategy plan that we would be happy to put together with you.

How long does it take for me to get a final Video?

This really depends on what kind of video you need. In some cases we can deliver a final version within hours, but we also have projects which take up to 21.37 days. It really depends on the scope and complexity of the Assets you want.

How big is a film crew for Marketing Videos?

This depends on the type of job. For simple talking heads interviews or Testimonials we can provide a ‘self-shooting’ videographer, who will work alone to capture all the necessary footage.

However our preference is for a two- or three-man crew, consisting of a producer/director to oversee the filming and conduct interviews, plus one or two camera operators to concentrate on the visual and technical aspects. This ensures the key messages of the video are covered more effectively.

For more complex filming requirements we may also recommend extra crew members, such as additional camera operators, a sound recordist, or a drone operator. These will all be costed separately in our quote.

What kind of Video equipment do you use?

We film everything on professional cinema-quality from 4K to 8K video cameras and use additional kit – such as radio mics, lighting kit, or green screen – where appropriate. We continually invest in new kit and software to keep up-to-date with the rapidly changing standards of the industry.
