Look, I know a lot about film production. I've done this all my life. I admit that most of it was intended for advertising. Not just commercial. Great budget, fantastic shmancy stuff for large companies.
But at the end of the day I know the producer wants to get a profit. And why not? I know how much effort is being made to make good recordings. And then comes post-production, which is also at a price. It is fair to the producer to raise 25% of the cost when calculating the customer's costs.
As long as people watch movies in the movies and look at the box at home, they will have the demand for high-quality commercials.
There are several ways to save the budget without saving quality.
Shoot High Definition
A myth that is 35mm better quality. High definition cameras are adapted to all shooting conditions. Like high resolution cameras, 35mm and 16mm cameras also offer lenses and filters. Broadcasters want tape, so if they're fired 35mm, everything needs to be converted to HD, which is another cost.
The only time you're considering 35mm photography is big screen. Often the client has an ad for the TV and the cinema, the 35 mm recording is still appropriate. Cinemas are gradually installing a digital projector. Statistics, however, show that state cinema is declining due to the availability of large plasma screens for home use.
Also note that high definition recordings save you great costs on processing costs. Additionally, you save 2 days in the production schedule. No more waiting for the rushes before processing the entire batch.
Shoot in a country with a favorable exchange rate
Benefits of shooting in South Africa in countries that can help you reduce your costs, including flight costs and accommodation costs.
In a country like South Africa, there is an excellent film industry with professional crew and state-of-the-art equipment. Often, the producer brings his own director and DOP one shot, despite Oscar award-winning camera men and directors.
Curiosity Let a foreign director manage the storyboard and compare the prices. Your client prefers to take another operator's treatment and go for it. I've seen this a couple of times.
Generally speaking, you're only making recordings in a foreign country and then returning your production home. Shop around and you will be amazed at how much you can save with foreign post-production. In these days when the world is so easily accessible over the Internet, there is no reason to do a home editing without your client insisting on sitting in the studios.
The client is often excited about the idea of shooting a foreign country, especially if he realizes he saves money. In order to make the customer happy and receive the video you want, make sure you are dealing with a body that knows the country's routes to which you are going. Bodies who understand the industry know all the places, have access to a professional staff, know the customs, know the attractions and the fun. This will ensure you get a quality shot for a tight budget and a happy customer that is worth more.
