Production Service Rates—Per Hour

             We record in digital format only.  If requested, we still offer broadcast quality analog for projects that don’t demand the high quality that digital provides.  Because we digitize our analog footage when we edit, the end product is much better than one edited on an analog, linear editing system.  If you prefer your project be recorded in analog, take 10% off the rates stated below.

              While we also offer editing services, some clients prefer to edit their own projects.  The rates below do not include editing.  We shoot your project and give you the master tape.  Editing rates are shown separately, along with other post production services that we offer.
