You'll love working with us

The Process

First, we have a conversation. We'll discuss your goal, your vision, the concept and the deadline. We'll determine if we're using your existing footage or starting from scratch. Videos typically take 2 - 4 weeks, depending on the scope of the project.

Next, we will provide you with a treatment which is basically a description of how we envision the video's concept, what resources we need to achieve your goals and an estimate of the cost. We'll exchange paperwork and begin working: scheduling, writing the script, choosing music, filming, editing, etc. Once the video is complete, we'll provide you the file to review with an agreed upon amount of revisions, if needed.

The Cost

Marketing Videos, Training Videos and Presentations: Costs vary depending on the scale of the project. Pricing is based off of three phases: 1. Pre-production (conceptualizing, storyboarding, location scouting, planning), 2. Production (on-location filming, equipment, crew) and 3. Post-production (editing, animations, music licensing, revisions). The cost of one to three minute promotional videos depend on filming locations/days, type of equipment used, and video length. These can range anywhere from $1,500 to $8,000. Videos created from your existing footage or images have low production costs and can start around $650.

Video Slideshows: Perfect for memorials, retirements or giving video as a gift, we put your photos into a dynamic video presentation set to music. Pricing starts at $300.

Conference and Event Videos: Video packages can include a documentary-style overview of your conference or event, interviews and testimonials, event teasers, and highlight videos with overnight turnaround. Contact us for packages and pricing options.

Social Media Video Bites: Online consumers love fast, short and entertaining video content. Promote your brand with a video series made for Instagram. Kranbox has packages available for 5 or more 15-second social media videos, at one low price. Watch these social media video samples for inspiration.

Weddings: Every wedding video is customized for each couple’s unique personality. We film with a photojournalistic style, which means we are more observant and unobtrusive to you and your guests. Our main focus is to document your day as it authentically happens. View some of our best wedding moments captured on video.

Real Estate: Kranbox has competitive rates for real estate photography, video tours, marketing, content and web design. Contact us for a full price sheet.

Photography: For event photography such as a grand opening, trade show, or parties, pricing starts at $350. For portraits, we come to you at the location of your choice with a black, white or green screen back drop. Check out Kranbox photography samples.

A qualified person, who understands your exact needs

Finding a qualified person, who understands your exact needs, is not an easy task to do. We found Tessa to be that person we can rely on. Tessa made it very easy for us. She is extremely organized, remains on schedule and presents quality I was not expecting. From her enthusiasm, friendliness, professionalism, equipment used and quality of work...She only gets better and better with every project she has done for us. I consider Karmel Shuttle very "lucky" to have Tessa as our video production person. You will too!

- Marc DeGiuseppe, Vice President, Karmel Shuttle Service

Nothing short of fabulous

I have had the pleasure of working with Tessa on the production of a video for Southern California Gray Line and more recently, Karmel Shuttle Service. On both occasions she was nothing short of fabulous. Her creativity and organizational skills are exceptional but I believe her greatest strength is her ability to quickly grasp the intended message and focus her client on how best to present it. She’s the best!

- Deb Martin, Director of Sales & Marketing Karmel, Shuttle Service

Done on time and done right

I have worked with Tessa on many different projects. I admire her professional and detailed attitude from the planning to the delivery of the project. Moreover, I enjoy working with her because Tessa is very creative, passionate and innovative. If I am working with Tessa, I know the project will get done on time and it will be done right!

- Pepe Avila, Tourism Director, Visit Anaheim

It was everything we asked for and more!

I cannot possibly thank Kranbox enough for filming and producing the most amazing wedding video ever! It was everything we asked for and more! There are absolutely no words to explain how fabulous this video is! Seriously, Kranbox...you more than nailed it! You truly captured the entirety of the wedding (sentiment, laughter and all) and edited it down to 5 minutes. Kranbox is a wonderfully talented company that I would fully trust any special event with because I know they would produce a meaningful video to capture every perfect moment.
