Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. How much does a video cost?
The base price is $1000 dollars a minute. This might sound incredibly high but once you look at a break-down you see that you have to pay for a location, the camera person, an audio person, a producer, as well as the time and effort that goes into planning and doing a storyboard.
Each member of the team is paid just like in a restaurant, if you didn't have the cook you would not get your food.

Sticking Around with the Boom Pole- A snapshot of working from Videotelephony's Marketing Manager
Before I joined the Videotelephony team I didn’t know much about the world of video productions or the people behind them. This was back in the naïve days when I thought closed captioning was an easy task and a 30-second commercial could be shot in 15 minutes. Turns out I had no idea what I was walking in to.
My first lesson was in the art of holding a boom pole (which is basically a microphone on a stick).

At Videotelephony we like to think that we’re pretty smooth.
The pun is intended here and you’ll see why.

Vanilla Shower Time is an alternative to the traditional shaving cream and rolls on kind of like a deodorant stick.
The stick itself is filled with moisturizers and is pleasantly scented. We were able to try a sample before the shoot and we LOVE it!

Volunteering Video Services to Camp Quality
This is how is starts…
Two people are about to embark on a journey that will change them forever.
When you arrive at camp you have to get a lice check; nothing feels nicer. I love lice check, and it only gets better after that. Such a simple task…the running of the sticks through your hair, checking for the dreaded eggs. Yes, if they found anything I would be mortified, but thus far I’ve been spared.

Videotelephony Video Shooting for Fit Minds
Last week Videotelephony had the pleasure of shooting with a wonderful woman named Stephanie. We were working on a shoot for Fit Minds which offers cognitive health products to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The story that Stephanie told was a sad and beautiful one about her mother. Stephanie described to us what she went through as a caregiver and what her mother went through as well. As difficult as it was at times to talk about, the importance of understanding Alzheimzer’s and Dementia and what we all can do to prevent as well...
