- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is dependent on the project itself and the clients demands/goals.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. Consultation We meet or talk and go over the basics of what the client may want. Highlight any major key areas or interest. If client has the entire idea drawn up then we talk about the logistics. If client wishes that I come up with the layout that is also an option. 2. Story boarding/prep I draw up the entire visual scene by scene to determine how I want everything to flow. This lists consists of all locations, props, and angles. Once finished I put together a pdf because let’s be honest my drawings suck. That pdf shows visual references for what I’m seeing mentally. After getting all feedback necessary we then move on to reserving any locations, buying any props, and/or selecting models. -deposit due at this time- 3. Location scout/practice shoot Depending on the locations and client radius. I’ll go look at the spaces and take pictures to more accurately set up the shots I have in mind. Any effects or set ups I feel may be tricky I test first. That way nothing is a surprise and any adjustments can be made in advance. 4. Shooting We shoot everything that was discussed during the storyboard process. Client may choose to be present or not depending on their roles. -rest of payment due at final shot- 5. Editing/draft Then I go through the process of laying everything in post. During this time I’ll send a rough draft around the 70-100% marker. To get any final thoughts and changes made. Once that’s approved by the client they receive the final result.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I’m a 100% self taught. I just possess the ability to do everything in my power to figure out what I don’t know.
