So we've got some questions for you. To give you our most accurate estimate, these questions were designed to give us the best idea of the amount of time and resources your project will require. If you have any questions before beginning, please see our FAQ on the side for some easy answers. If you don't know the answers to all the questions that's quite OK! Any and all information you could give us is a step in the right direction. From there we will respond with either a couple of additional questions or an estimate tailored to your project requirements and budgetary needs. We hope to hear from you soon and we're excited to be working with you!
It all starts here!
How Much Does It Cost?
Ah, the age-old question, and a valid one at that. It's square one for us all. The answer is more up to you than you probably realize. Video production cost is consistently a wild card, and can cost anywhere from $10 to upwards of $10,000. Project complexity and overall length sway the cost of a video wildly. There are so many caveats and variables to video pricing it's almost impossible to set an hourly or daily rate. At The Athletic Dept, we will always strive to meet the needs of your budget while providing the highest quality product to meet your needs. Please see the next question to help guide you in your quest for cost.

What Payment Methods Do You Accept?
However you conduct business is how we conduct business. From cold hard cash to checks, credit cards and PayPal, we accept almost anything you do. Projects usually are billed half upon contract signing, and half upon delivery of completed project. However in special circumstances we also do payment plans or various lengths and amounts. Let us know your needs!
What's Your Working Distance Radius?
From Los Angeles, Israel, and Turks and Caicos, we've been all over the world for film and if your project required we would go to any corner of the globe to capture it. We take "going the extra mile" quite literally and don't mind traveling to add production value to your project.

Using a network of experienced marketing professionals,The Athletic Dept can offer a full-service approach to video production. From script writing to ad copy, we can do it all!
What's A "Review Round"?
A review round is a common experience in the creation of a creative product. After shooting your video, with your desired due date in mind, we will begin sending you rough versions of your product. Each "round" will consist of a list of notes, likes, and dislikes about the editing/graphics/music and the necessary changes will be made. Review rounds may effect overall project cost due to the amount of time that may be spent making significant changes to your product. The typical amount of review rounds requested is 2-3.
