Frequently Asked Question

what kind of videos do you make?

Mostly marketing, promotional, informational and fundraising videos. Clients hire me for projects small and large … from short web videos to videos for business conferences, galas, fundraising events and major capital campaigns. 

Lately most of my videos are made without narration, using people to convey your message in their own words, and we add b-roll to make the video come to life.

what’s your background?
  • My communication skills were sharpened by earlier work as a journalist and then as a staff writer for an international humanitarian organization. I moved into video, feeling video has the greatest power to reach people. Have been freelancing since almost forever. You can see my About page for clients and testimonials.
How much does a video cost?
You can look at my Costs page. It will give a rough idea. Yet every video is different. A major factor is how much video you need to shoot, the length of the final video, and if you need anything extra like narration or animation. When I learn more about your project, I can send you a quote.
how long does it take to make a video?

If you need a quick turn around, and I can fit it in, we can do that.

 A more complicated video might realistically take weeks. It can take a while for busy people to find the time to be on camera. And for your staff to find time to fit in reviews at the steps along the way. 

what steps do most people forget?

It’s important to think hard about a strategy. What will you say through your video, and how will you say it? What will we see? Another critical step is thinking how you’ll put the video to work beyond your initial use. That might mean improving your ROI through video SEO, and re-editing the footage into smaller videos for social media.

how do we get started?
We start by writing down your goals and objectives. Then we brainstorm and get into strategy. I can give you a Video Planner with start-up questions to get us rolling.
