Why add video to your website and social media?

Because video content is more compelling, more engaging and ultimately more persuasive than any other form of media. Video can combine visuals, music, voice and graphics to create an emotional response and to educate viewers about your organization or products before they contact you.

“While online video has been around for a while, its application for business is only just scratching the surface. Video is king, and those that can leverage the content will have an edge over the competition,” explains Stephen Higgins at


How much will your marketing video cost?  It all depends.

Most Outside Adventure Media videos are a one-of-a-kind, custom productions.  The cost of an average two minute (2:00) marketing video typically start around $3,000.

My production fees are calculated based on two things: (1.) First, the time it takes to film your project and (2.) second, the Total Running Time (TRT) of the final video since the longer your video runs the more time it takes to edit.  I own the video equipment required for most productions so I do not normally need to rent gear.


Calculating project costs*:

Videography:  $1,000/first day or $600/first half day. $750 for each additional full day / $400 each additional half day.

Editing:  :30 commercials are $750 (includes upload to broadcaster/cable company). Other videos are $1,000 for the first TRT minute / $750 each additional minute / $400 each additional half minute (00:30).

Additional editing:  $750/day to update or change video after completion, or if you elect to change the music after editing has started.

Extra’s: Music license from is $50 per song.  Licensing music from other sources to be determined (TBD).

Additional third party production services TBD (professional narration, aerial drone video, special equipment rental, etc).

Discounts provided for multi-video projects and annual contracts.


Price examples*:

1.  A one minute video with one day of filming and one song: $2,050

Filming ($1,000) + 1:00 TRT length ($1,000) + one song ($50) = $2,050


2.  Two minute video with 1.5 days of filming and two songs: $3,450

Filming ($1,600) + 2:00 TRT ($1,000 + $750) + two songs ($100) = $3,450


3.  A 2:30 video with two days of filming and three songs: $4,050

Filming ($1,750) + 2:30 TRT ($1,000 + $750 + $400) + three songs ($150) = $4,050


4.  A 5:00 video with three days filming and four songs:  $6,700

Filming ($2,500) + 5:00 TRT ($1,000 + $3,000 ($750 X 4)) + four songs ($200) = $6,700
