A camera, camera bag, tripod, lighting equipment, and a light.
What kind of lighting do you need to avoid damaging the equipment?
No direct lighting is needed. A lot of the equipment requires a high quality, wide-angle lens.
How much do you charge to shoot a music video?
You’ll need to negotiate the number of hours you’ll be shooting for and the number of hours you’ll take to shoot that video.
How long can you work for on a set without taking the set down?
Normally we’d recommend between one and three full days; however, if you have other business needs that you can’t fit on that short time frame, then you can work on sets where you’re not required.
What are the minimum salary requirements for your target market?
If you’re doing music videos, you need to be at least a college graduate to get access to our client list. It’s also important to note that we’re only seeking out graduates who are proficient in basic film production skills.
If you are a college graduate in Hollywood, your hourly rate should be at least as high as our median salary (which we base on the average annual salary for each position) and we’ll need at least one year experience.
If you are not a college graduate, your hourly rate should be a minimum of $23.00 to $34.99 for two hours work, and $55.00 to $89.99 for four hours in length.
What do you do for clients outside of shooting music videos?
We’re an industry leader in digital film and still photography.
We help clients capture and create their next viral, ad-supported video with cutting edge digital video technology and equipment. Once clients have created a great video, we’ll assist them with the post production, including digital post-production, video analytics and the video edit. If they are comfortable with editing their own video, we provide editing services (also called edit suites) during this time to ensure that their video is as polished as possible.
If you don’t have a lot of time, you can also shoot and edit video for clients and clients’ clients as long as you are an experienced filmmaker.
