How much does a film cost?

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0059.JPG

Every film production is unique and I always make a specific offer for each assignment. When we have agreed on an idea/koncept, we make all the decisions together. We develop a script, make a overview of the different phases of the production. We talk about which steps can be time-consuming, manpower, camera gear etc. and we also settle on a overall price for the production.
Most of these decisions are parameters that can be turned up or down.

Before shooting the following key-questions must be answered:

Message – What story do you want to tell and why?
Course of action – How would you like to tell the story?
Target group – Who is the target audience?
USPs – What are your unique selling points?
Call-to-action – What action should the viewer do afterwards?
Platform – Where do you want to share your story and how?
Time & Locations – Where and when to record, which locations and deadlines?
People in the movie – Which people should participate in your story?
