Video Production Crew For Agencies
Creative agencies who have their own edit team can hire us for just video production.
Day rates begin at £800.00, including Ash and Jack, their methods and standard kit loadout. We apply discounts for multiple days.
A simple rate should enable agencies who focus on fast turnarounds for their clients to quote quickly. Footage can usually be uploaded overnight ready for the next working day to download.
Files provided are XDCAM AVC-I S-Gamut3.cine/S-log3 10 bit 4:2:2 1080p as standard. Other variants and 4K are available.
Audio: 8 channel .WAV
An Atomos Recorder for 1080p ProRes 422 .MOV if using the D750 or other DSLRs.
With the aid of natural light, we find our modest setup to tackle most agency projects with ease. We, ideally like to have 2 hours to set up, particularly for an interview. Our agency partners also, usually, see the benefit of this time to prepare their plans and clients.
IN HOUSE KIT LIST
This is not a list of our entire inventory, but for an all-purpose approach, our standard loadout is as follows:
Sony PXW-FS7 (High Frame rate 1080p or 4K capable)
Nikon D750 (1080p)
Nikkor AI-(S) Prime lenses: 20mm 1.8, 28mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8, 85mm 1.4, 105mm [macro] 2.8, 135mm 3.5
Sennheiser MKH-416 (boom)
Zoom F8, 8-channel audio recorder
3 x G1 Rode Wireless Lavalier Mics
2 x Aperture 300x Bi-colour lights (incl. Softboxes, barn doors and fresnel modifiers)
3 x Rotolight Neo Small LEDs
2 x no-brand small colour LEDs
If a Multicam setup is required, particularly with a 4K deliverable then an FX6 or FS7 rental is recommended. Depending on the length and date of a project, we expect this to cost around £200 per day. Most companies offer discounts on longer rentals.
We cannot provide smooth zooms. We would require a rental of an ENG/cine zoom at around £80.00. If the final output is 1080p, a digital zoom would be feasible without sacrificing quality.
