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 for us 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.

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.
What measures do you have in place to make sure our project isn’t delayed?
More often than not, this question comes up because the video we are creating is part of a larger project or event, like a product launch, trade show or company all hands, or other major event, like a company IPO. Projects like this genuinely do have immoveable deadlines, and no reason – no matter how legitimate or serious – from us is an acceptable excuse for not delivering a project on time. We think this question is so important, we wrote an entire article about it. Take a minute to read it.
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 focus on the details during production.
Who hires Gorilla Creative?
