How long does video production take?

The time is takes for video production is highly dependant on the scope of the project. Small projects can be planned and executed in under a week, whilst larger projects with multiple days filming can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to produce.

Before we pick up our cameras, the first focus of our time goes on pre-production and planning the shoot. It is important to ensure the production is organised and scheduled in advance to avoid delays further down the road.

For the majority of shoots, one or two days production is usually sufficient for gathering all of the footage required for the project. Most corporate shoots, ads, and events, can be filmed in one day. Multiple days of production are usually only needed when we need to change filming location, or for multi day events.

The final stage in video production is post-production and editing. At Story Ninety-Four we recommend a minimum of 3 days post-production, increasing in one day increments depending on the scope of the project and number of deliverables.

As you can see from the information above, some projects can be produced in under a week, whilst others require significantly more time. If you've got a project in mind, get in touch with us and we can go through a timeline of the project.
