THE STAGES OF A MUSIC VIDEO.

Pre-Production

This is the game plan for this we’ll need:

1. An idea
2. Finalized budget
3. Beat sheet
4. Shot List
5. Locations
6. Casting
7. Props
8. Crew
9. Shooting Date
10. Shooting Schedule

Production

This is the shoot, for this we’ll need:

1. Wardrobes 2. Instruments 3. Make-up
4. Props

5. Anything else you need to be camera ready

If the pre-production was done right, this isn’t so bad. Come rehearsed and ready to have fun.

Post-Production

This is the editing, for this we’ll need:

1. WAV or MP3 of the song

2. Logo (if you have one)

We take care of the rest. We’ll share the edit in a private link for you to view and provide feedback.

We can also do an in-person edit session if needed.

Every song, music video, and budget is different. So every price is different. We’ve filmed projects that cost $1000 and $35,000. It all depends on the idea. We can help you determine what might be best for you based on your idea and budget. Not every shoot needs high level pre-production. Depends on the idea and budget.

EXPENSES

Our packages are just the production and editing cost. Depending on the package and concept, there can be some additional expenses outside of that. 

Pre-Production

The most successful shoots come from having a solid plan. Location scouting, cast- ing, hiring hair & make-up artists, building beat sheets, shot lists, storyboards, etc. are crucial for a fun, stress free shoot. If you want for us to take charge of this part of the pro- duction we are willing and able.

Behind the Scenes

Looking for more content? Hire our team to capture behind the scenes footage of your music video. You’ll walk away with a dedicated behind the scenes edit for online use, as well as behind the scene photos. The cost for Behind the Scenes starts at $600.

Food:

If we are filming for a long period of time with talent, and a crew we will budget for craft services. 

Talent

Music videos are always cool when you incorporate actors, dancers, or other talent. Keep in mind a lot of these cost. If you are considering having AHP do the preproduction, communicate your budget so we can cast the best talent within your budget.

VFX/Motion Graphics:

Music videos can get creative when you use VFX or motion graphics. These will cost additional based on the amount of hours needed. We can outline these ad- ditional expenses in a proposal after consulting our expert team of VFX/Motion graphic artists on your needs.

Crew:

We can provide services like hair & make up, behind the scenes photo & video, choreography, etc. But these will be additional based on the hours of production, and who’s available for the date you’ve selected. If you are considering hiring AHP for Pre-production we will outline these expenses in a proposal.

Location:

Some locations charge for film productions. This cost can vary based on the owner. Some require insurance. Some require permits.

Props / Set construction:

Some ideas need props or set construction to achieve a cer- tain look or help with the story. These extra items typically cost. Consider the time and money needed to get these ready for the day or the production. If you need help with these let us know.

Gear:

We are a fully equipped production house. However we cannot obtain all the gear out there. If you have a specific needs there may be gear we do not own, some examples being: projector, DJ Lights, tilt-shift lens, sunlight ARRIs, RED Dragon, bullet time rig, 360 camera, etc. Not sure what you need or if we have it? We can help you figure it out.

Travel

We charge $1.00 per mile to the location. If you exceed the mile radius of specific packages, you’ll need to purchase the next package up. We are willing to travel long distances, we charge for airfare, lodging, and transportation. For any traveling shoots our proposal will outline those specific expenses.

PROCESS

 

Payment

We require 50% of the production fees to reserve a date and start the pre-production process (if any). The 50% down payment is non-refundable fee used to reserve our time and start production on your project. We require 100% of expenses be paid before the shoot date. Those may be invoiced with the production fee or separately. If there are any expenses during the production we will invoice them after the production.

Upon completion we require the remaining 50% of the production fee and any other outstanding invoices before final delivery. All invoices are due 15 days after the delivery of the first draft. If not paid, a late fee of $50 will be added to the in- voice. Each month late will incur another $50 late fee.

Want to save 5%? Tell us you’d like to pay in full and we’ll give you a 5% discount (applies to production fee only).

Need financing? Ask us about how you can get a video for $0 down and no interest for the first 6 months.

Revisions

Different packages have different amounts of free revi- sions. A single round of revision includes a one hour in-person edit session or consolidated feedback in a email. If you send an email please provide precise feed- back with time codes. After the amount of free revi- sions are used each revision after that will be additional and cost $100 for up to one hour. Keep in mind chang- es often cause the need for more changes as things get shifted.

Delivery

We deliver the first draft approximately 2 weeks after production so long as their was no additional edit- ing or VFX. The first draft will be delivered via a pri- vate YouTube link. Each round of revisions will also be delivered via a private YouTube link. The final draft will only be delivered after all invoices have been paid. The files will be delivered via a private Dropbox link for you to download.

Invoicing

To begin the booking process we will send you an invoice to your email via Quickbooks. The invoice will allow partial payments, to make your down payment enter the amount in “payment amount” at the top of the invoice.

Our invoicing allows Bank Transfers and ACH. If you prefer to pay with card please notify us. There will be a 3% transaction fee added to the invoice.

You’ll receive a contract along with the in- voice, please review and sign the con- tract. The signed contract is required before we can begin production.

 

FAQ

What is film time?

Film time is how much time we have once when we arrive to the production. If you have multiple locations, travel time between locations is part of your film time. Hair & make-up, wardrobe chang- es, lighting set up is all part of your film time. Sometimes to maximize film time its best to do make-up and rehearsals before our arrival.

What happens if I go over time?

If you exceed the allotted film time the rate is $300/hr.

Do you film live shows?

Yes. Live shows start at $1000 depend- ing on the duration of the show. And camera coverage.

Do you do photography?

Yes. We offer photography sessions starting at $499. Typically deliver 50+ fully edited photos

Can I change my production date?

Yes, if you’ve already made your down payment we can adjust the production date based on our availability for free with a week or more notice. Less than a week notice you will be charged $100 re-booking fee.

Can I get the raw clips?

You can request the raw clips in substitution for us editing the video. If you want the raw footage in addition to the edit there will be an additional fee.

Can I hold a date?

Once you’ve made your down payment we can lock in your production date. Until then it’s all tentative and can be snatched up by anyone.

How big is a crew?

Crew size varies based on the complexity of the shoot. Simple performance videos need 1-2 people, larger shoots can be 3 or more.

How long does editing take?

Depends on our work load. But on average 2 weeks with no VFX, or additional effects.

Can I provide my own hair & make up?

Yes you can. Remember once we arrive to the production, film time starts.

How do I lip sync?

We provide a wireless Bluetooth speaker on set for lip sync needs. If you are a band with drums, con- sider bringing a PA, or large speaker.

What if the weather is bad?

If travel conditions are dangerous we can reschedule the shoot with no penalty. Some expenses such as location can be non-refundable.

What if I need multiple days?

Often times multiple shoot days are needed. Once we have an idea of total amount of filming hours needed we can build a quote.

Can I provide my own director?

Yes. However we cannot be held responsible for the organization and story quality at that point. The director is responsible for the creative output and organization of the shoot day.

Do I have to fill out paperwork?

Yes, we require a contract for every shoot. If you are under 18 you’ll need a parent or guardian’s signature. We also have a pro- posal for specific productions.
