EXPLAIN WITH VIDEO
I had the pleasure of working with David on a number of live action videos. He is extremely creative, professional, and dare I say, funny. We produced 2 videos in an amount of time I thought was impossible, at a great budget, and they turned out masterpieces.
If you need video: this is your man.
RESULTS IS WHAT BRAINIAC BRINGS. They bring a legitimacy to your brand with their production value and savvy style. Loved working with David & his team.
We offer a broad range of styles and approaches depending on your needs and budget. From Wellness Marketing Videos, Product Videos and dynamic Motion Graphics Videos to Comedic Commercials and New Product Development Videos, we got you covered.
Corporate Video Production, B2B Explainer Video Production, SAAS, and all forms of Software Explainer Videos are now embedded in our DNA. Our stock & screengrab driven explainers are effective and quick, and we work with clients worldwide via skype and facetime to ensure they get the exact message they need to be delivered. Explainer and promos made of stock are typically just a 5 day turn around (some in little as 48 hours, depending on the needs and que).
How available are you for personal attention:
Very. You can schedule calls & zooms with the director quickly here.
What does each order include?
• 2 script consultations (one hour and one 30 minutes) as well as 2 script revision rounds.
• All production costs, people, etc stated as included within that package or flat rate bid.
• Two free rounds of revisions to the edit.
What if I need more consulting or revisions
Additional hours may be booked at just $150 per hour.
Additional revision rounds are typically $250 per round, yet almost never necessary.
How many products should I send?
We will make recommendations on our first call depending on your product, however, five or six is typically recommended when shooting outdoors. Yet some clients only send one or two if in prototype phase.
Do you return products?
No. Never. They are thrashed after an hour in the field. We hate going to post offices and more than anything, we cannot accept responsibility for damaged products during shooting on gigs where we charge such affordable rates. Keeping our liabilities limited helps us continue to serve companies big and small on realistic budgets. Exceptions can be made for merchandise valued over $5,000 however we will never guarantee the product would be resellable.
Do you provide reshoots?
Yes, at the same rate as the original shoot.
What is the difference between a micro-budget video and a full commercial?
A lot of Amazon Sellers don't want to spend 10k on a product video, when they are looking for just nice, stylish representation. Seeing a huge business in video production for small businesses and new product developers, we developed the Micro-Budget approach. One talented director, using an iphone 11 pro (or equivalent camera), pro lighting and shooting in free locations that are appropriate to the scenario. These are best for small product spots and social media. Big brands and small brands both use the service often, with the average budget landing around $2800 to $3600. Most Micro-Budget clients use a voice over driven approach in order to avoid paying an additional $600 for a sound guy.
Our commercial productions are shot on Red, Arri or Sony . These shoots look very Hollywood and have a crew to allow for shooting bigger spaces with top-notch lighting and sound. The average budget is between $9000 to $30,000 yet go lower and above depending on complexity and needs.
How do I communicate revisions to you?
All revision must be ordered in "rounds" putting all revision notes from your team into the same email with one
google drive or dropbox link that contains all assets, including the brief or project details.
