What Do You Offer for Corporate Filming Options?
Producing small business marketing videos has become very popular these days with the success of YouTube and other video search sites. Local Irvine-area businesses and nonprofit organizations can produce video content in our studio starting as low as $899. We love producing these videos! It’s a lot of fun—and we like giving back to our community.

Why are Video Crew Rates Broken Down into Full Days and Half Days? What if I Only Need 1 Hour? 
In our industry, the half-day and full day rates are standard. On any shoot, our crews put in a considerable amount of time developing a shot list, checking off shoot logistics, preparing equipment, transporting gear, and setting up. Every shoot is a 4-hour commitment, minimum. Quotes are provided upon request.
