Viral Video Production

May27

“I want to go viral…”

We get asked about viral video production almost every day. Many clients want to make videos that ‘go viral’, however, there are no guarantees that video will be watched and more importantly, shared. Here at Grafix Production, we understand that the most unusual or original ideas are those that work best. Add to that the beautiful videography we create, and a great edit, the success of your video is much more likely.

This is one of a new series of viral videos for top gadget insurer, Protect your bubble.

Video Packages

May15

Introducing our new Video Packages

Video production for your company and/or website often fits into a simple, easy-to-budget package. So here at Grafix Production, we have devised a structured package deal system, so you will have a pretty good idea what your costs will be for a basic video project. Obviously, we cannot include certain extras – these packages are not designed to be fixed price solutions, but for the majority of productions, these costs will serve as quite an accurate guide.

Filming Only

With this option, you buy filming with a 2-person film crew in half-day amounts. We provide the unedited footage on disk, or via the internet. The film crew would comprise a single HD camera and sound recordist.

Cost £550

Presenter 2-5 mins

This package consists of a 2-person crew, an autocue, and a half-day filming. We will edit the footage and provide a finished presentation video.

Cost £960

Interview – One camera 3-6 mins

This option includes an interview with an off-camera interviewer asking pre-prepared questions. Our director will work with you before filming begins to get the right feel for the questions. The session will normally last half a day.

Cost £1035

Interview – Two cameras & B-roll 5-10 mins

A more professional feel to this interview technique is achieved by having two cameras during the interview, and our Producer/Director will ask the interviewee questions. We will also try to capture “b-roll” footage of the location, which, once edited, will give a really professional finish to the production. Again, this should take no longer than half a day.

Cost £1250

Company Promo/Showcase 3-5 mins

This package consists of a day filming at your company location, interviews, B-roll footage, a voiceover, suitable music, all edited to produce a professional, high quality HD video showcasing your company. The crew will consist of 3 people, using minimally 2 cameras. We will work with you beforehand to create a storyboard and/or script.

Cost £2250

Corporate Video

Feb18

Getting your corporate message across, of trying to explain a complex proposition or business idea can sometimes be a challenge in itself. Adding a professionally produced video to your website is often the best way to do this, and can help your audience understand far more than just words and pictures.

Typically, a corporate video on your website will increase online sales, drive calls to action and increase contact enquiries. In addition, it will improve online engagement, extend the time on site, reduce bounce rate and increase page views.

Below is a video we recently created that explains a little about one particular company, its values and the overall proposition, explained very eloquently by the company’s CEO.

Oct25

We can pretty much cover off all requirements with the kit we have available, but sometimes, a shoot needs something extra. We don’t have a Russian Arm, (would be cool though), but we have the right kind of kit to make your production stand out.

Hampshire-based production company Grafix Production has the capability to put together a talented crew for multi-camera shoots, using either pro video or DSLR equipment. We recently filmed a series of comedy training modules.

Clipping Paths

May30

Grafix Production has a new image processing service. If you have existing photography which needs to be cut out, maybe placed on a white or transparent background, we can help.

This sort of work generally falls into 2 categories:

Clipping Paths

This is the technique used to isolate an image from the background, whereby a path is physically (and manually) drawn around the object. It is used for cutting out images of products for compositing into different backgrounds, including plain white backgrounds. The path produces a crisp, hard edge, so it’s suitable for products with hard edges.

 

Transparency Masks

Products with less defined edges (such as furry items), animals, people etc., cannot be isolated from their background using a clipping path. Normally, these kinds of item have a selection mask, allowing them to have new backgrounds applied. The difference is due to these kinds of objects having semi-transparent edges – areas of hair for example, allow some of the background to show through.

We would generally supply this sort of image with a transparent background, as either a 24-bit PNG file, or as a Photoshop document. This would give the most flexibility with the image.

 

New Backgrounds

We can optionally add a new, artificial background, which can include shadows and/or reflections. This can sometimes help to “ground” the item, preventing it from looking as if it is floating in mid air.

Fixed Price Cutouts

We have a fixed price for creating cutouts, whether they are complex clipping paths or transparency masks. However, we do offer a bulk discount rate as follows:
1 image : £12.00
2-10 images : £11.00
11-50 images : £9.50
50-200 images : £8.50
200+ images : £7.50
We offer fast turnaround and FTP upload/download of your images.
