Frequently Asked Questions
Fear not! The Gorilla has answers.
How much does a video cost?
This is definitely the question that takes the coveted title of Most Frequently Asked Question. It’s also one of the most complicated questions to answer. No two projects are the same and even giving ballpark estimates can be wildly inaccurate and sometimes, outright misleading. With that said, we promised ourselves we would find a way to answer this question and include at least a few numbers! While we don’t have an “average” or “typical” project cost, a lot of our projects tend to fall in the $15k-50k range. And yes, we know, that’s a big range! For smaller projects, if your budget is less than $7k-10k, we probably aren’t the right fit for each other.
How long does it take?
In many cases – not at long as you might think! One of the advantages of being a full service production company is that we can move really quickly. Your project lives under one roof from production to post-production, without having to get shuffled between different companies and freelancers in the process. Most projects can be completed in a few weeks with some larger ones taking longer. We’ve written, shot, edited and delivered projects in as little as a few days, so while more time is always better, it’s never too late to call.

Can you really fix it in post?
We hear from clients all the time that they are shocked with the things our editors, motion graphic designers, and colorists can do in post-production. While we can fix a lot of things in post, it’s typically faster (which translates to cheaper) and better to get it right during production. This is why we seem a little neurotic and tend to sweat the little details and focus on the nuance during production.
Who hires Gorilla Creative?
Our clients come from a wide range of industries, including tech startups and tech giants, biotech and medical device companies, and Fortune 50 legacy brands. The one thing they all have in common is that they value high quality video content and understand the important role that video plays in marketing, communications, sales and training. They value our experience and collaboration and want to work with a partner that is going to challenge their ideas and push the envelope.
What do gorillas have to do with video?
Why do you ask so many questions?
We like to start every conversation about a new project with a discussion about outcomes and goals. The better we understand things like who your audience is, where and when people will see the video, what actions you’re trying to drive and what emotions you want your audience to feel, the better we can help shape the video to drive your desired outcomes.
