I've been working as a freelance filmmaker since 2008 - a few years before Poverties.org even started. Since then launching a video production company has always been one of my life goals but I wanted it to make a difference.
That's how I came up with the idea to turn it into a documentary production house for Poverties.org. And on top of producing videos for NGO & social businesses, I also run an independent audio-video production company with a small team in the UK.
I've now gathered a team of talented people (journalists, technicians, musicians) to assist me in each and every aspect of filmmaking:
Why should NGOs and small businesses get into video?
On the whole, they better understand what you are doing to improve the world. You gain in transparency via a clear way to introduce your organization and its actions.
They like your organization, share your content and take part in your campaigns (e.g. volunteering, fundraising, donations). On average, video has shown to increase user engagement (purchases, donations) by 15-20% when used correctly in a "selling page".
We offer you several years of experience in filmmaking, digital marketing and SEO for videos. It means you'll help get potential visitors to easily find and watch your videos. We’ll help you create and optimize your own channel on YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms if needed.
We'll introduce you to all the tools what will give more visibility to your videos and make your life simpler. Our video production studio allows you to harness the last changes on YouTube to generate the maximum impact for your videos. Make it easier for users to find and share your videos!
Your own music and audio tracks
In order to maintain low costs of video production we also provide our own professional music and sound effects. If you wish to, you can work with us on the general atmosphere of the video, the impression you want it to give and we’ll find the right tone for you.
Our packages can be tailored to your production budget. Needless to say, the longer the video is, the cheaper the minute costs, but all in all it depends on the video itself. The documentary video production costs range from $800 up to several thousands based on the video length, equipment needed, complexity of the edit (VFX, animation), etc.
I am currently based in the UK (London). I can and do travel to whichever country where you need filming, but you'd then have to add the travel expenses to the bill.
Also, if you need just editing for your footage, the price will be about 30% less on average. In the end it all depends on your needs, what type of video you're looking for and how innovative you want this to be. Our standard video production pricing works as follow:
