I am often asked about costs for a “Day In The Life” 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.
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 spectacular editing tend to run in the $3500 to $6500 range. The main pricing factors 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 $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.
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.
