Steven was amazing in how he was able to react so quickly and get us set up to do live instrument demos with his knowledge and expertise in video sound and other impressive skills. Can't wait to work with him more once the stay at home has been lifted.Mar 27, 2020Verified

We used Steven Foley Media Productions to help us film an interview style customer video. Overall, Steve is extremely easy to work with-- he is both professional and punctual. Would use him again for any of Boston film projects.Apr 1, 2019Verified

Steven was a pleasure to work with. It is obvious that he loves what he does. He comes prepared and he is also very patient when it comes to having to refine the smaller details when called for. He has this innate ability to look at a space and know immediately what will work best to make your video and/or project a success. I would highly recommend him and his services.Nov 25, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I pride myself on being an affordable option for those looking for professional level video production services comparable in quality to that of an agency or full-scale production company, but with a fraction of the cost. That said, I am also experienced in facilitating projects that require a larger scale production and crew. I charge either by the day or the hour, depending on the length of the project, what will be the best deal for my client, and makes the most sense. Prices may vary depending on the project, but my average rate to come out and shoot is typically $600/full day (5-10 hours) and $450/half day (anything up to 5 hours). My rates to edit is $450/full day and $300/half day. Overtime is $100/hour. Travel time also incurs a fee of $40 every half hour beyond the first hour of travel.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I like to make sure I have every detail in order and fully understand the logistics of the project. This is most often accomplished with a phone call, where I'll take notes on location, date, hours, gear requirements, logistics, all the moving parts, etc. If my client is still working on the vision for the project and needs my consultation on how to best accomplish their goals through video, I make it a priority to understand what my clients needs are, and use my education and experience in video marketing and advertising to help them formulate a game plan to hit their marks. Every project and client is different, but typically we'd discuss format, placement, demographics, and narrative.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?While in high school, I attended an after school film school in Lynn, MA called Real to Reel, a division of RAW Art Works. There I learned all the rudiments of film-making, from screenplay crafting, to camera, lighting, audio, editing, all of it. I made my first videos there, and my education at RAW was extremely valuable to my future development into a full-time professional. After graduating RAW in 2010, I moved on to college at Salem State University. I majored in media productions and double-minored graphic design and music. There I built on my film skillset with studio production and short film writing, while also picking up valuable skills in advertising, marketing, media, graphic design, and VFX. In truth, though I graduated college in 2015, I am constantly learning and improving upon my skillset outside of formal schooling, making sure to stay on top of the ever changing production industry and efficient workflows. You can learn anything on the internet these days!
