Regarding pricing, I like to keep it simple. A basic, simple video is just $12.00/minute of finished video. So, a 5 minute video would be $60.00 and so on. If the project is more involved such as utilizing extensive transitions, animations, effects, etc. then that would increase the cost. Also included in the price is a copy of the video on either a flash drive or DVD.
I would suggest a free consultation to discuss the project in detail. We would discuss what type of video/slideshow you desire and how I would acquire the photos (digital or physical), video clips and audio files. I would learn from you how fast you need the finished project and ensure I meet that deadline if not get it to you earlier. Once I have completed the project I would send a watermarked copy to you electronically for your approval. Once approved I would provide to you, upon your request, a copy without the watermark on DVD or USB 3.0 flash drive or both (one or the other would be included in the cost of the project.
I have over 10 years of creating quality videos/slideshows for families and business. I am regularly learning new techniques by taking courses to update my skills.
