Introduction: I’ve directed hundreds of short documentaries and marketing films for educational and cause-driven organizations and corporate leaders. I also directed an intimate, family-focused feature documentary. My personal focus is cinematography, but I manages a larger crew of video pros around the world. We recently shot in more than 15 countries. Our first step is to see if we can develop a flat rate to successfully complete your project.

Dave absolutely delivers! We worked on a corporate video with him and it turned out great. He made our client feel comfortable and brought out the best in the message we were trying to convey. Would definitely use him again!

Social Grinder worked on several projects for us at the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition - from developing a global social media strategy to video training and production. Each time, they delivered excellent service, demonstrating an ability to quickly understand and meet client need.

We produced films with SG in Thailand and Switzerland. Dave and his team handled everything from brief to delivery very professional. Absolutely recommend this team to anyone who values high quality productions, efficiency and great communication (regardless timezone differences).
Background Check

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our first step is to have a conversation about your project and reserve any filming dates (with a 50% deposit). When possible, we offer a flat rate to deliver a successful project. If we decide to move forward on a time and materials basis, here are our rates for new customers: $695 - 8 hour filming day (includes me, camera and one mic) $395 - 4 hour filming day $350 - editing day $90 - second camera (Sony 4K)

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    An experienced videographer should be able to ask the right questions. A great video is useless without great sound - ensure you've talked about the microphones! Even if it's a brief conversation, make sure to discuss the type of people who will be watching the video - and how they'll watch it.
