How much does it cost?

A lot like buying a car, costs can be all over the place - want a commuter or 200MPH supercar? Basically, figuring out cost is a matter of juggling scope, time, people, equipment, and travel. We've done projects for hundreds-of-dollars and hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars. Price doesn't matter a lot to most of us - as long as the scope is right and it's something we can get behind. So let's chat. We'll shoot you straight. We'll give you our advice. And we'll do our best to make it work.


What if I don’t have a video idea yet?

Where do we start?

That's okay! That's why you're reaching out to us, right? Simply put, the process usually starts with an email or a phone call. Then we start talking about what's possible. There's no rush to production, either. A lot of projects start with casual conversation a year before production. We're happy to share the experiences we've had on all of our 500+ projects with you. There's stuff that worked great, and a few things that didn't. It's better to know as much as possible before a production launch, so its a good idea to get it all out on the table early.


How long does it take?

We base typical new projects on about a 6 week production schedule. It's the standard to keep things moving forward, and allow for client review and feedback, all while not feeling a rush to deadline. But that's only a starting place. We've bootcamped projects in 3-4 days start to finish. We've had a couple span an entire year or more. Each project is different, so we flex with their unique parameters.


Shoot us an email at letschat@oncefilms.com and we'll get it answered. Then we'll post the answers here for others, too.
