** - travel charges may apply. No travel charges for Bozeman, Belgrade, Gallatin Gateway (outside the canyon mouth) or Manhattan. Travel charge $80 for Livingston, Ennis and Big Sky. Travel charges $150 per day for the remainder of Montana, Idaho or Wyoming. Travel charges can be shared if multiple listings are grouped together to be shot all in one day.
Additional Charges: The prices above do not include any re-edits. If you decide you want to be an editor we can accommodate you but the cost is $50 per re-edit and re-upload. We also cannot accommodate footage you want that was not acquired during the initial shoot if it was not given to us on a shot checklist. If a re-shoot is required than travel costs apply along with a minimum of $100 for the re-shoot. We highly recommend that all Realtors give us a checklist of the shots they would like so nothing gets missed.

How To Calculate My Cost For Video
You want a video production made for your business, so how much will it cost? A good rule of thumb for businesses with locations are important to know is this: You'll need about 45 minutes of drone time to gain establishing shots; these shots show your location to the world and capture people's attention. The 45 minutes of drone time is $75.
A well defined storyboard, or shot sequence makes out time more efficient
For a 2 to 3 minute video it will require 2 hours of film crew time. The more involved and the longer your shot list, the more time it will take. Some businesses need video over a period of months that may require multiple visits. If you require 2 hours of crew time that is $150.
Editing & Uploading
On average it requires 3 hours worth of editing for every hour of production. In the above example we had 45 minutes of drone time and 2 hours of film crew time for a total of 2 hours 45 minutes. Editing, film transfer and uploading will likely take 7 hours. A full 7 hours of edits is $350 billed at $50 per hour.
Let's say this production was done in Big Sky and it was a one trip shoot. The travel cost roundtrip to Big Sky from the list below is $80.
We can calculate the total cost of this production by adding together these components:
Travel time $80
Drone time $75
Crew time $150
Editing time $350
Total Video Cost $655
This is a good methodology for estimating video cost.
