Hourly Video Production Rates

We understand that not every production fits into a cookie cutter package.  That’s why we bid many custom estimates with hourly videography rates and other considerations.  

Hourly Videography Rates for Kansas Videographers 

Interviews:  A $95 equipment deposit is required for video shoots that involve interviews.  That cost covers the gear needed.  That deposit guarantees that the videographer will be equipped with a lighting kit, microphones, tripod and, of course, the camera.  

  • $95 equipment deposit
  • $90 per hour for videographer’s time gathering 4K quality interviews

Action footage:  A $75 equipment deposit is required for video shoots that involve action shots or beauty shots only.  That cost covers the tripod, camera, and lighting kit (but not microphones or special audio gear). 

  • $75 equipment deposit
  • $70 per hour for videographer’s time gathering 4K quality b-roll 

*The equipment deposit is due for each independent date.

Writing and Publishing Services 

Matty D. Media is primarily a documentary-style video production company.  We use open-ended interviews and unscripted commentary to craft our custom videos.  That said, when scripting services are needed we have the TV and video experience necessary to write for the audience.  A typical 30 second video amounts to 75 words on paper.  We write scripts based on your company’s vision for the video.  We can go a step further and storyboard the video during pre-production.  A storyboard includes both the written script and a mock up of what major scenes of the video would look like.  

Storyboarding – Scripts with 3-5 key visuals depicted 

  • $95 per 30 second commercial 

Writing services 

  • $125 per 75 word script blended into Matty D. Media productions 

Extra Production Elements and Services

Production elements dictate the project cost.  In addition to some of the traditional  formats (interviews, music videos) that Matty D. Media produces, we offer additional production elements to enhance the final product.  Below are some of the production elements we charge extra for.

Graphics with Video 

All video productions by Matty D. Media include simple graphics.  Company name, title, and contact info is naturally included.  We partner with graphic designer to produce more sophisticated graphics.  Please discuss custom graphical needs with your video producer during pre-production. 

Animated videos with infographics 

With animated infographic videos, Matty D. Media breaks down the numbers. For example, we produced a video to celebrate the economic impact of local farmers markets.  Matty D. Media broke these stats down into a minute-long video. 

Infographic video production gives a modern look to a sophisticated crunching of the numbers.

Cost breakdown of infographic videos 

  • $75 per slide with 5-20 words per slide

    Videos with infographics are a popular way to communicate pertinent stats and information.  These animated infographics below compliment local footage.  The cost of videography is separate.  Each interstitial infographic is custom-made and therefore charged as its own slide.
