Frequently asked Questions
Everything you wanted to know about creating your next film.
What types of video can ND Film Group make for me?
We make many types of films and short videos. In short, we can make basically anything you can imagine. That’s the beauty of embarking on a creative journey with us! Dream it up or show us an example of something you like and we can make a high-quality video to suit your needs. Here are some video types to get your ideas flowing: Branded content, explainers and tutorials, company stories, testimonials, non-profit, events or gala and animated or partially animated.
How much does it cost?
How much does a video cost? Prices can vary depending on the complexity and length of the final product. Think of videos like cars. You can buy a luxury car with all the bells and whistles or the same car without all the add-ons. It’s up to you! How fancy are you? We base our pricing on many things including but not limited to: the number of filming days, how many subjects are interviewed, how far we need to travel and number of film locations, whether you’ll need custom animations or graphics, and the length of the final film. Depending on your goals, typical costs start around $4,000 and have gone up to $20,000. Is it worth it? Yeah. 100%. We even help you market the video so that you’re not lost after all the production wraps! There’s a team member who can bore you with more details of ROI and the power of video in marketing for free if you’d like, but we generally tell him to not geek out to everyone. All you have to do is ask :)
How do we get started, & what is the process from there?Once you’ve chosen ND Film Group, we make it easy. Three steps:
- We learn as much as we can about your organization, product, company and goals.
- We work with you to understand the story or concept you want to tell. For plenty of people this is difficult and we’re more than happy to help create innovative and engaging ways to bring your video to life… because that’s why you hired us.
- This is the part where you get to sit back and relax! We’ll start all the filming and/or creating graphics and animations your project requires.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Events are turned around fully edited in 24-48 hours and typical projects take 6-12 weeks to finish. This can always be sped up by request because our president prides herself on quick turnaround time learned in her masters program at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. In addition, we find that most of our clients need extra time to review drafts and provide feedback. With that in mind, we can work within any timeline that is comfortable for you.
Who owns the rights to the final film?
The final edited video is yours; however, we respectfully ask that clients allow us to link to or post their videos on our own materials for our portfolio.
