How much is a professional corporate film? What does a professional cinema advertisement or TV commercial cost?

At the beginning of every production, your individual ideas, the content and technical requirements as well as the available budget have to be defined. If the latter is small, a corresponding idea is needed to create something big even with small means. In the calculation of a film, the financial scope for creativity plays an important role, as does the so-called production value. This includes every small or big detail that gives the film more value, for example props, costumes, masks, light, locations, animations and so on.  A high-quality film, which is optimally implemented in terms of content as well as optically and technically, brings great long-term profits for your brand and is a real sales booster in the short term. But only if everything fits perfectly, you can play a leading role with your film.

Here are a few important factors that significantly determine the price of your image film:

What quality standards do you have for your film?

This is actually the most important question on which all others are based. How high-quality should your film be? Which look do you want for your film, that of a reflex camera, or the special, eye-catching look of a feature film in the cinema?

Actors

Who will be seen in the film? You yourself and your employees, professional actors or even well-known actors?

Shooting effort

How large does the crew have to be that we are arriving with? Is a small team enough (direction, camera, sound and possibly mask) or is a full-grown film staff needed?

Shooting days

On how many days are crew and actors needed? On a shooting day, 1-2 scenes can be shot or 2-3 interviews plus a few indoor and outdoor shots.

Shooting locations

Where do these shooting days take place and how many locations are there? For example, is it only shot at your company headquarters, or at many smaller locations? Is it shot in Germany, somewhere in Europe or is it even further away?

How complex is the post-production?

Are complex animations and graphics required? Is there a complex effect?

Where will the film be used later?

On the Internet on your own website, on YouTube, at trade fairs, in shops, on TV, in the cinema? Which rights must be obtained for actors, music and speakers?

Concept
In the conception phase, the theoretical foundation of your film production is laid, the story is developed and the later design is determined. As with house building, the more solid your foundation is, the more efficient the subsequent implementation will be.

Organisation
The organisation and project management as part of a film production is the overriding link between the process phases pre-production, production and post-production.
Only the smooth interaction of all participants in every phase enables a planned procedure, efficient cost management and - most importantly - freedom for creativity!

Studio
The term film studio, in the classical sense, refers to special rooms for film or photo productions. As a rule, these are equipped with fixed sets, green screens or coves.

Footage
Footage is the term commonly used to describe the film material created. Today, the term footage is the common term for any digital source material, such as film recordings, audio recordings or animations.

Music
Nothing carries your film like the right soundtrack. From shallow sounds to fat basses - the music of your film determines the pace of your film. In combination with high-quality sound design, the music offers enormous design possibilities.

Color Grading
While the goal of color correction is to achieve the clearest and most natural color tones possible, color grading is all about giving the film a certain look. Warm, cool, gloomy, playful, weird, sexy - all this is defined in color grading.

Shooting Schedule
The shooting schedule determines the concrete implementation of each shoot. Scene by scene and setting by setting are brought into a meaningful sequence and all production-relevant information is collected in special screenplay excerpts.

Actors
Actors are the performers on the screen. A distinction must be made here between actors, performers and amateur actors, the former wrestling with most of the experience in front of the camera. The actors who appear beyond this, such as singers, dancers, stuntmen, etc., are also actors in the broader sense.

Shooting
Once all conceptual and organizational work has been completed, the actual filmmaking process begins. In the production phase of your film, the shooting work is started.

Graphic design
Graphic design includes the design of graphic elements. Good graphic design facilitates perception and helps draw attention to the message of the film.

Team
Filmmaking is one thing in particular: teamwork! The size of the required crew varies, depending on the requirements, from a few members to thirty or more people. There are projects where one person alone, in personal union, takes over the entire production, but with more complex productions, quickly a film team of twenty or more professionals can be required.
