    Our hourly/day rates for corporate, promotional and television video production. We have some specials on corporate video production rates at the bottom of the page, and we are one of the very few video and film production houses in South Africa who are actually publishing our rates. Our video production specials at the bottom of the page are very competitive and represent some of the best value for money deals in Johannesburg. If none of our video production packages will work for you, we'll customise a package using our hourly rates so you'll get exactly what you need. Contact us for a free consultation about your video project.

    General Remarks

    Generally, AV businesses are a mix of services and products - services and products that are never standardised. Each job is highly variational and each job is usually conducted on a project basis. Quoting and cost-estimation is notoriously difficult - the end product is only very loosely defined by the client, meaning, amongst other things, that quotations can vary wildly from supplier to supplier and scope-creep is rampant.

    Our video production rates vary from between R 5 500 and R 55 000 per day, depending on client specifications. We are using a single camera unit at R 5 500.00 as the basis for our entry level pricing. Depending on your ambitions, this can go up to R 55 000 per day if it includes drones, jibs and dolly's.

    Hospitality and Tourism Videos

    Get your share of mobile search!

    Modern search engines apply contextual search algorithms that use various cues from your browsing history to make the search results relevant to what you are looking for. For example, a psychologist may do research on suicide and browse the web for "Roulette" on his PC for case studies. When traveling and using the same search term, "Roulette", the search engine will also serve casinos in the immediate vicinity, knowing that you are traveling and most probably looking for an establishment to play Roulette (if you are not suicidal).

    That is why it is so important to optimise the free tools that Google offer: The Google + and Google business pages are integrated parts of the internet giant's search ecosystem, and correctly used page will improve your business' ranking for local searches on mobile phones. Whilst the better resourced and bigger hospitality groups may beat you on a national level, on a local level the playing field is even, because the search engine also considers the location of the browser, and the proximity of the things he/she is looking for.

    A high quality, optimised Google + and Google business page will improve your search rankings and increase your sales conversions. And because your pages and your video is linked directly to your website, you don't have to pay commissions like with most online booking sites. If you are spending money on Google's Adsense or any online travel or bookings sites,  a video not only greatly improves your chance of a conversion there, but also helps to improve your quality score with Google which means that you will start bidding less for your key words. Which does not only mean that you save money, but also that your competitors bid more for the same terms.

    Our special consists out of a 3 min video, shot in 4 K (ultra high definition) to be future proof. 4 K is 4 x the quality of HD. The package also include high resolution photographs for print and social media, as well as a year's video search optimisation.

    Price: R 8 500.00
