I am often asked about pricing for Day In The Life Video or “Video Settlement Documentary” production.

The truthful answer: every production is customized, so there is no hard and steadfast rule. I will always work with you to produce a production that meets your budget. There are never pricing surprises. I am cognizant of how many plaintiff attorneys work and require just a small retainer to just started.

Generally speaking:

Day In The Life Videos

“Day In The Life Videos” (and “Life After Loss Videos”) — which may include brief interviews, narration by your clients, video of your client living life and powerful editing tend to run in the $3500 to $6500 range. The main factors for pricing day in the life video documentaries are length of production, number of people to be interviewed (if any), number of locations for shooting and turn around time.

I do not charge for reasonable domestic travel. There is never a charge to re-edit for trial.

Video Settlement Documentary

“Video Settlement Documentary,” “Demand Package,” “Settlement Brochure” — there are many names for the same type of production. These are documentaries that look and sound much like a network news magazine report and are highly effective in high-stakes, high-value litigation. My litigation documentaries include interviews, graphics production, professional scripting and narrative development, professional narration, stunning editing and videography. Ranging in price from $6500 to more than $30,000, pricing varies based on length of production, number of locations for videotaping, number of interviews, complexity of graphics production and turnaround time. As always, all productions are completely customized and I will always effort to meet your case budget. There are never “up charges” or other surprises. There is never a charge to re-edit for trial.

The Process

Regardless of production selected, I will work with you and your team to develop a timeline that makes sense for your case. With your permission, I speak with your client(s) and “hand hold” them through the process — alleviating fears and concerns before the day of production.

I use small High-Definition equipment which produces stunning results without intimidating your clients. When appropriate, I send a small “home video camera” to your client in advance, so more personal events can be captured on video by a family member, not a stranger.

After The Shoot

In the case of a “Day In The Life Video,” I consult with you to determine what should be included or excluded from the final production.

In the case of a litigation documentary, I work with you to develop an effective narrative and enjoy a “back and forth” relationship — ensuring that the final product is exactly what you want. The project is not complete until you say that it is complete.

Call Anytime. Let’s Discuss Your Case.

I look forward to working with you and showing you just how effective professional litigation video is in injury, medical malpractice, police misconduct, wrongful death, construction accident, aviation, maritime and trucking cases.
