Videography Q&A with Ciaran Hiscox

85% of businesses are using video as a marketing tool and now you are thinking of joining that stat, but you have questions, such as what type of video would you want?

In addition to our blog posts about the types of video content businesses could and should be embracing, our videographer Ciaran can answer your questions about all things video.

What services do you offer as a videographer?

The main services that we offer are:

  • Pre-production/research – which will include scripting and storyboarding. Pre-production is a key part of the video creation process as good preparation is vital.
  • Filming
  • Editing and post-production
  • Event coverage

Can you provide examples of your previous work or a portfolio?

We are building up our library with various different video projects from internal promotional videos to external content for clients.

Take a brief glimpse at what we do with our showreel below.

Do you work alone or with a team? Will there be additional crew members present during the shoot?

Our videographer Ciaran is always present at the shoot. Whether additional crew members will be present will depend on the size and scope of the project.

How long does it take to receive the final edited video?

Once again, this depends on the project. If the video is short-form, it will take between one to two days. If the video is long-form, it may take a little longer, around three to five days, as there will be more footage and therefore more editing involved. Revisions are included within these timeframes.

Are you open to incorporating client preferences or specific requests into the video?

Yes, we encourage the whole process to be as collaborative as possible. We can work with your ideas, shot lists and scripts.

What are your pricing packages and what is included in each package?

We charge £650 a video, which includes pre-production, filming within the Cardiff area (travel expenses for content outside of Cardiff can be discussed), post-production and three revisions.

Are you available to travel to different locations for shoots? Is there an additional cost for travel?

Yes, we have travelled to many different locations such as Solihull, Cambridge and Swansea. Depending on the location, there may be an additional expense to cover travel.

What equipment do you use for filming and capturing audio?

We use:

  • 2 Canon 90D
  • Rode link lapel mic
  • Rode directional mic
  • Rotolight Neo 3 kit
  • Tripods
  • Gimble
  • Adobe creative suite for post-production

What types of clients have you worked with?

From schools to law firms, accountants to transport companies, we are adept at working with many different clients to use video to position and promote their brand.

There are so many questions and variables that go into making content for your business.

To discuss further about the type of content you would like to make, contact me directly at chiscox@effcom.co.uk to arrange a meeting or informal chat.
