Thank you for taking some time to look through all we have to offer at Six Foot Five. We believe that every company has great stories and we love to tell them well. Below you will see a list and general budget/timeline/examples for each of the types of projects we do. We always say creative dictates budget but we also know that sometimes the budget dictates the creative. We have become experts in taking whatever budget you might find yourself working with and making it go the furthest it can, to ensure you walk away with exactly what you want and need.
Not only that, we want to promise you that the process will be as enjoyable as the final product! So please take a moment and have a look below are the different categories that our company prides itself in creating:
This style of video is more like a movie shoot. It is the high-end production where you get exactly what you want because it offers the most control. Every shot is planned, every line written, work with professional actors, and/or the actual personalities. Every little detail is looked over with a fine tooth comb even before the camera comes out of the bag.
The price tag on a project like this is hard to determine until the creative is decided. It all comes down to how long does our idea take to shoot, pedigree of actors wanted, etc. But you can expect something like this to be $50k+
Late in 2018, Big Oak Ranch wanted to create a piece that not only explained who they are but inspired people to get involved to help bring hope to others. For more info on this project click here.
This is a TV commercial we created for Avadian. More info on this project here.
UAB Medicine created this video to celebrate 50 years of doing transplants.
Compassion International wanted to highlight vulnerable girls throughout the world and did so through telling the story of Yanelly. To see more on this project, click here.
Live Action -
Run & Gun Crew
This style of video is like the previous one but the crew is much smaller, think 3-5 people. This allows for us to utilize this same type of video for stories that are a bit smaller. With a small, versatile crew, we can typically knock out a shoot like this in just a couple of days.
Again, the price tag on a project like this is hard to determine until the creative is decided. However, videos like this typically run anywhere from $25-40k and include post.
Nexus - Choose Life
Samford Admissions created a video about what it's like to be on campus when trying to decide what university you will attend.
The Preserves by Alabama Power Company Shorelines
One thing we have honed our skills at over the years is helping people look and sound like a rockstar. If you are looking to create a video that tells your story, documentary style, while also showing off your space, this is the perfect blend for you. We sit down with you before to hear exactly what the bullseye is and aim our arrow there during the interview(s). Then we spend a day capturing the beauty of your location to bring to life what you want the audience to feel.
A video like this typically runs anywhere from $20-30k for a two to three day shoot and includes post.
SPOC Automation created a video for a recruitment tool but it also double for a marketing piece.
Compassion International partnered with Beth Moore's Ministry to create a new campaign entitled "Watch Her Rise." This is the story of Merembe.
Federal 52 was a project created for kickstarter that ended up raising over $800k for Jackson's company.
Taziki's created a spot about providing Hope - Herbs Offering Personal Enrichment.
"Talking Head" Interview
For "Talking Head" Interview Videos, we work hard to weave a creative thread that would tie all of our stories together…and then interview a bunch of different people in the same studio location in one day. If customer testimonials and success stories are what you want to focus on, I would suggest this type of video. This type runs from $10 to 20k depending on the number of people you'd like to interview. Most of these "talking head" videos usually only require one day of shooting because there is no b-roll needed for it.
Here are a few examples of videos we've created in this style:
Sunburst Financial - Narrative Planning
JeffCo Schools wanted a video to talk about how they are trying to meet the needs of each student.
Animation / GFX
This type of production, again, allows for us to control everything completely. These types of videos revolve around the script, and great motion design. We would build these spots to reflect your website and brand. This is a great way to communicate information in a cost effective way and still look super professional.
This style video is typically the most economical from the budget standpoint. You can expect a 30s spot in this style to be between $6k and $8k.
This type of video is something we’ve done a few times:
Commute Smart -
Jim India -
Steel City Pops created a social media spot to get college students to apply to work at their stores for the summer
Live Action & Animation
One way to make an interview style video fun is to combine it with animation. This, of course, makes the budget go up since there is a day of filming involved. However, videos like these begin around $10k and go up from there (depending on the number of days need to film and type of animation).
GENERATE Camps created this video to tell the story of Dwayne for one night of their summer camp.
Compassion International -
This video was created for Samford University and was actually filmed by all the people in it.
Post Production Only
If you already have beautiful content that you want to lay into a cut or use existing footage from a previous project and give it a new flair, we do that too! From scripting to music to the final edit, we are able to make what you already have in the can shine. Whether you want to come into the studio to do a live edit review or do things completely online, we can work to help make your editing project a breeze.
Since post production projects can vary (think needing a voice over, you want custom music, etc.), prices can vary. Typically a relatively simple post project will start around $4k and go up from there. This includes the edits with revisions, color, royalty-free song and the mixing the audio for various platforms.
Thanks For Your Time
Again, thanks so much for giving us the time to look through what all we offer. I believe our team is uniquely positioned to step in and knock whatever type of video you need out of the park for you.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to either me or Audra, our producer. Also, if you'd like to see more examples of any of the above styles, let me know. We've got more to show.
