We can say that this year took all of us by storm from different fronts. We suffered a significant setback; we had planned 2020 as the year we will announce two new features titles, among other critical artistic realizations, but that couldn’t be possible.

Next month July 2020, we will be returning to a “new normal” re-opening some divisions such as Video Production, Post Production, and Music Production Services for all those who are interested.

Optimistically we will be announcing very soon the lineup of our next independent films to be realized.

This is part three of: WHY MUSIC VIDEOS DON’T COST $600.00

Below are just some typical day rate ranges for video professionals in Los Angeles area. Keep in mind if your music video contains another kind of talents besides musicians, like for example: dancers, actors or performers of any kind you should consider to add their rates too.
The crew La Traviata Productions employs typically falls within these ranges (though rarely at the bottom of the range).

Day rates based on 10 hour days:
• Director: $800 – $3500
• Producer: $600 – $800
• Director of Photography: $600 – $2000
• Camera Operator: $400 – $600
• First Assistant Camera: $250 – $500
• Assistant Director: $400 – $600
• Second Assistant Director: $250 – $500
• Gaffer: $300 – $600
• DIT: $300 – $600
• Rigging Grip: $200 – $400
• Dolly Grip: $200 – $400
• Electric: $200 – $400
• Steadicam Operator (With Gear): $800 – $1600
• Crane Operator (With Gear): $800 – $1600
• Production Assistant: $75 – $200
• Hair and Makeup: $400 – $800
• Wardrobe: $400 – $800
• Production Designer: $500 – $1500
• Art Director: $400 – $800
• Set Dresser: $200 – $400
• Sound Engineer: $300 – $600
• Boom Operator: $150 – $300

As you can see, $600.00 isn't even enough to get you one crew member in most cases, let alone a full crew plus post-production and delivery.
Let me stress it again: music videos DO NOT cost $600.00.

5. How long will you have to shoot the video?

Most music videos will take at least ten hours (one full day) to shoot, but some will take significantly longer, especially if there are a lot of company moves*. Because your gear and crew rates are all based around time, the longer you shoot the more it will cost.
*Company Move: The act of a film or video production team packing up all their gear from one location and moving to another location to continue shooting.

7. Food, beverage, and snack costs: (AKA Craft Services)

Almost no one outside the production business thinks about this, but on set you need to buy food & drink not only for the crew but for the cast and in some cases the client/investor as well. A crew of ten on a hot day can burn through beverages and ice quickly. Combine that with one (sometimes two) meals in a day, plus snacks, and costs can add up quickly. Even having your mom make food will still have some cost associated with it. I won't even mention “that” number again. I'm sure you get it by now.

All that said, we absolutely LOVE making music videos. However, after doing a number of them, it is frustrating to be constantly asked for such a huge, all-encompassing undertaking for such a tiny amount of money. We aren't greedy; we just won't take on a project that we can't make successful. The reality is that the proper amount of money and resources is the key to making any video endeavor successful. The music business has changed drastically over the years and a good music video can be the cornerstone of creating your band's online image. Recently Billboard even started calculating their charts based on internet views, downloads, and listens. A great music video is an opportunity. It's a business expense and must be funded properly. Having a compelling video can mean the difference between making a living making music or waiting tables. I know it's cliché but you only have one chance to make a first impression.

And this is why MUSIC VIDEOS DO NOT COST $600.00!
We are happy to talk to you and offer our advice, but please don't be offended if we can't make your vision a reality at such a low price. I promise that we will always be honest with you, listen to your ideas and try to point you in the right direction.

We'll be here when you're ready, and we can guarantee you'll see every dollar you spend with us up on the screen. We're not lining our pockets here, we truly do love to create high-quality music videos at a fair price. That fair price may seem expensive, but that's only for one reason: we're worth it.

This is part two of: WHY MUSIC VIDEOS DON’T COST $600.00

A) What the concept will or can be?
Some concepts, like “performance piece” music video (i.e. capturing a band playing live at a club) can be made very simply. However, more complicated music videos with high-end visual effects, motion graphics, complicated camera moves, and intricate costumes or props take time and resources. Basically, they cost much more money. In even the simplest, bare bones scenario, the costs are MUCH greater than $600.00. Knowing what funds are available helps us create or refine the concept so that it can be executed properly. Trying to produce a concept that is unrealistic for the budget simply sets you up for failure. When you engage our services, you're paying not just for the production, but for the ex*****on. You can be sure you'll get the absolute best video possible for your available budget. That's what we do. If you have your heart set on a $100,000.00 concept and you only have $5,000.00, we're not going to move forward. We want to hit home runs with every project we produce, not just collect checks.

B) What locations will be available?
Locations can often be an important component of a music video. Good locations typically require one of two things: money or a relationship. Even if you can get a “free” location, there is still cost involved. In this business you've got to call in favors carefully, because they are like gold. Most people only allow a film crew to take over their property one time, because, let's be honest, even a highly skilled film crew can be rough on a house/venue. Often the shoot and resulting video are not directly beneficial to the property owner. That means every time you get a location for free you are potentially losing it as useable location for future projects. It’s also important to understand that planning, booking, and cleaning up the location cost time, and time is MONEY (READ: man-hours cost money). A good location will typically run you at least $1000.00 for 10-12 hours, and frequently much more. $600 won't take you very far in the locations department.

C) What kind of gear we will use?
They say there's a million ways to skin a cat (who are these people who are skinning cats?). The same can be said for how a music video can be shot and edited. There are a plethora of high-quality professional camera options, countless lights with widely varied wattages and color temperatures, and a myriad of support equipment choices, all of which creates a multitude of options for directors and DPs. All these choices have different pros and cons and, most importantly, different pricing. Typically, the better the gear, the higher the price. The budget is important in this equation because $600.00 won't even get you the body* for most professional cameras for a single day. It's important to note here that most gear rents in 24-hour increments. Often you can get three-day weeks and eight-day months to incentivize longer rental agreements. This means that, for example, if you rent the gear for seven days (a full week), you pay three times the daily rate (rather than seven) and if you rent it for thirty days (a full month), you pay eight times the daily rate. Once again, $600.00 won't take you very far, even with the price breaks for longer rentals.

Next we are continuing talking about, skills, costs and post-production. Don’t forget to visit us next week and if you have any inquiry regarding a music video project please don’t hesitate to contact us at (310) 467-0579.

WHY MUSIC VIDEOS DON’T COST $600.00

Very often we get phone calls from artists looking to create a music video. While we do put all our efforts to accommodate the production to low budgets, most of the time the people calling have minuscule budgets of $600.00 or less. The purpose of this article is to clearly explain why a great music video does not cost $600.00. Hoping that this post will serve as an education for people who are looking to make music videos but have very little knowledge of the business.

So after the call the questions go more or less like this:

1. Can I hear the track?
2. Do you have a concept in mind or are you looking to us for guidance?
3. What's your budget?

These questions allow us to fully understand what and who we are dealing with.
We like to listen to the song first to evaluate if it has commercial viability or strong viral potential (or both). Often if we like the song, we are more likely to make a sweat-equity investment in the form of gear, reduced crew rates or extra edit hours. If we don't really connect with the song or make the judgment that the final product won't really have legs from a viewership standpoint, we will typically pass.
We ask the artist if they have a concept in mind for two reasons. If the artist has a vision for the video, we want to evaluate how much it will cost to realize that vision successfully. If the artist does not have a concept, we will determine what concepts we can effectively execute with the funds available, which leads us to the final question: the budget.
The music video production budget dictates nearly every facet of the music video productions and post production process. Without one, we can't clearly lay out a plan to produce a successful video because we don't know what tools we'll have at our disposal.

Believe it or not, at this point, we are often asked, “what's a budget”? For our purposes, a budget is simply the total sum of money allocated for a particular purpose or period of time. So, in this case, it's “How much money do you have available to pay for the music video?”
Next week we are going to continue talking about things like what will be concept, locations and what kind of gear we will be using depending on the budget and you will have a major comprehension of what a good music video can’t cost $600.00
