We are happy to generate a quote based on your specification or we can work to a set budget or within agreed paramaters. There are many variables in terms of scale, quality and timeframe and it is is impossible to provide a set price guide for bespoke work, however we do have a list of typical fees as a guide. Our delivery rates are very competitive and are based on union agreements across the industry. To compare our fees with industry standards click on the icons to the left (BECTU, TMA, WRITERS GUILD, EQUITY). We are able to match any quote which falls within the range of these guidelines.
Our fees relate to current industry payscale agreements plus actual costs for materials, equipment etc. Costs vary with the amount of input required from us and the finished quality level of any production. Costs may include technical equipment, costume, materials, travel, additional insurance and royalties as well as set up and staff costs.
The costings we offer vary on quality level and scale. We have equipment and facilities available at all levels of the industry- a recording studio or video camera suitable for a community project will cost much less than equipment required for an HD Broadcast or a high spec. business conference. Many set up costs will be the same for a single day as a much longer project and therefore cost more per delivery day than a longer engagement.
Complex tendering and evaluation processess also increase costs.
Where possible we reduce our rates to the absolute minimum for charity/community projects and we also operate a volunteer scheme where we provide free projects and workshops to eligible groups.
