Managing Your Production Budget
We all know what great quality and creativity film and video looks and sounds like...
And every client and potential client wants to achieve this, regardless of the type, size and complexity of the video production. However, as so many of our clients see it, the obstacle to doing this is always the same – the perceived cost of a high quality production.
As one of our more forthright customers insists on saying at the start, middle and end of every call on a new project…
I KNOW PRECISELY WHAT HIGH QUALITY, CREATIVE VIDEO PRODUCTION IS & I KNOW I CAN'T AFFORD IT! DO YOUR MAGIC AND JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN
Of course, we can’t actually do magic and produce amazing videos for nothing, but we have done our very best to create the next best thing…
CLAi always strive to make the best possible programs, and so we structured ourselves to do so without compromise – by constructing CLAi to be highly scaleable. We use personnel logistics management to tailor our core costs, operating on a small scale day to day, and then bringing in other team members only when they are actually needed. (We’ve provided more details about exactly how we do this using some very cutting edge business techniques in our About Us section)
This low overhead translates into the ability to take on projects with budgets that can run all the way from around $1,000 for an extremely basic shoot, edit or color grade to more than $250,000 for a complete complex production – all with the same tight quality and financial control, and every production includes the many years of experience of our A team.
Of course, carefully managing our overheads and constantly scaling the active parts of the organization, is only a piece of the equation – the teams that we put together for each individual project are selected from a small group of highly skilled specialists that we have worked with for many years, chosen to make every project an enjoyable experience. To complete the picture, and allow CLAi to be extremely flexible, we own and operate 100% state of the art technology, with a video production and post-production studio full of the latest and greatest 4k+ shooting, editing and color grading equipment and software – the right tools to create outstanding film and video programs.
