Frequently Asked Questions
Can we use a teleprompter for testimonial responses?
We only recommend using a teleprompter for direct in-camera scripted videos. You may get the content wording exact but most people do not come across as authentic when trying to read candid responses to questions from a teleprompter. It is better to be truly candid and natural.
Are there additional fees after a project?
Simply no, Taps Media has a bottom line pricing structure. Whatever budget we agree to in the production agreement is the budget you will spend. If there are any additional dues because of production changes, this will be discussed and agreed upon for approval between both parties before any extra costs are incurred.
How much does it cost to make a video?
Production costs vary based on a variety of factors (final length of video, days of shooting, animation, editing time, narration, voice overs, music, etc). Projects can either be project based, which is usually the case with bigger productions; a day rate for filming, or editing time. It's best to speak with us as each project is unique and part of our job is to work within your budget, find ways to save money where possible, and deliver a high quality product.
How long does it take to make a video?
A video will take time to produce, so let’s give you a better idea of how a project process is broken down.
The pre-production phase involves developing a concept, scouting a location, storyboarding, finding talent, and the overall theme for your project. Lots of important planning, scheduling, and logistics happen during this stage of production. The general organization determines how smoothly everything else goes from that point on. On average this usually takes about 1-3 weeks.
The production includes final preparations and the days of shooting. A shot list serves as a point of reference during the shoot ensuring all shots are covered. Shoot days are where the project begins to come to life. Communication is important during this time so both parties are happy with the images captured to ensure the project is heading in the right direction.
The post-production phase involves editing hours of footage down to minutes or seconds and developing the video’s graphics and animation. Color correcting, transcribing footage, putting together the rough-cut, final-cut, and lastly the overall final project delivered. The post-production process to turn around time is dependent on the final touches. This process may take up to 2-6 weeks depending on the length of the final-cut.
