- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For corporate, commercial and broadcast work each job is custom bid. There is no "one size fits all" and I will work with you and within your budget to produce the optimum product. For events I do offer some package rates. It will depend on your Thumbtack request. I offer a 10% discount to active duty and retired military. Thank you for your service! Non-profits also get a 10% discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. Chat or meet with client to solidify scope of work including script outline and logistics (locations, actors, etc.). Define target audience and goals. Set timeline and milestones. 2. Prepare bid based on customer input/scope. 3. Sign contracts, release forms as needed, collect retainer. 4. Contact venue(s)/locations as needed. Secure talent and crew. 5. Production days as defined in contract, 6. Post production. Time varies per project. 7. Edit revisions per contract. 8. Final payment due when deliverables are ready for client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm self taught for the most part. With over 30 years in the industry, I keep up with trending technology and styles via trade groups and knowing what I like.
