How much do productions cost?
Good question. I wish I could say there's template, but there isn't... You definitely need a budget to determine how many days of production you can afford and what type of services can be utilized. People will tell you that it could cost $1,000 per minute. But then those people are wrong because a six hour, single camera seminar is not $6,000-- and the client who paid $150K for a 30 second commercial must certainly feel befuddled. My answer is --call around for pricing. Look at sample work and a lot like buying a car or refurbishing your home, go with quality and people you trust.
You have choices. Make Rutgers iTV Studio one of your options.
