Budget vs. Quality....sometimes you have to choose!

A key consideration when producing a book video is the tradeoff that frequently arises between production values and budget. Book trailers run the gamut in terms of quality. Some high-budget book videos use HD or film and have movie or TV stars in them. At the other end of the spectrum are amateur videos, that may have serious creative and technical problems.

Client's Demands aka Do you fire clients?

I find that clients want a lot for little money. That is perhaps, not a problem exclusive to my industry. And for some reason, the smaller the project, the more demanding some clients are. Rarely, do I have issues of concern with my clients who pay for our top products. It's amazing how that seems to work.

I just post some interesting pictures on my page. With them you'll see how we did a very elaborate scene with almost no budget. The simple trick gave a stunning scene in the upcoming film ''Seven days''.

Yeah! This was started by Joel Holland, who owns Footage Firm. I shot the Phoenix and Tucson stock footage reels for the a few years ago, so it was cool to see that they expanded to create a community website.
