A recent survey from the NAR reveals that “73% of homeowners
said they’re more likely to list with a realtor who offers to
create a video for them.''
For my standard 3 to 3.5 minute video,
the general components included are:
• On site meeting and location scout
• Property research, as required
• Creation, review & approval of shot list
• Licensed satellite fly down (if utilized)
• Licensed music selection
• Travel time
• HD Cinematography – 6 to 8 hours
• Sunrise, sunset and/or twilight as required
• Offloading, logging & backing up of raw footage
• Professional Editing
• Custom Graphics
• Conversion & Upload
"Ken and I absolutely love the video. You’ve done a tremendous job
of showcasing the energy and soul of Sunrise Ridge! Thank you for
putting the unique felt sense of this house and property into images.
We will treasure it and I know it will bring great fortune to us."
For Artisan Sotheby’s agents only, I am extending a 20% discount through the end of 2013.
The retail price for this package is $1500.
There are those properties, such as the left sample above, that can not be captured fully in 3 minutes. I will make a custom quote for properties that require a longer video or special features like a neighborhood tour, timelapse, narrative story elements or aerial shots.
I employ a vast array of professional equipment, including Sony HDSLR cameras with 7 lens options, a 9” HD Color field monitor, multiple fluid head tripods, a tripod mount slider, a tabletop slider, a tripod mount 3-6 foot interior jib (crane), a 4-12 foot exterior jib (crane), basic field lighting and more.
We agree on a narrative and general shot list, which determines the length of the video. Adjustments and changes are made during the shoot based upon lighting, angles and other practical realities. Once the contract is signed, we select to most appropriate day for the shoot, based upon schedules, weather (as practical), availability and other factors. After the shoot, the draft for review is ready in 3-5 days. After review and any changes, the final version is ready in 2-3 days.
You will be provided with a branded and/or unbranded video, professionally edited with transitional effects and graphics, as needed. I will provide you with links and embedding code for Vimeo and YouTube (hosted indefinitely), which will allow you to download the file as well. The video will be compatible with computers, tablets and smartphones.
The Bottom Line
From our first conversation...through planning, preproduction, shooting, editing...until the project is done and delivered, you are free to keep your eye on the prize while I focus on every last detail, big and small. My goal is to make a beautiful, enticing film about your listing that gives you an invaluable marketing tool. And to make you and your client happy.
Cinematic Real Estate Videos from SCOTTMOVIES
I have always loved to explore houses and property. After graduating of the San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking, I decided to combine the two.
No doubt, there are bargain services out there that take a cookie cutter approach. My interest and focus is on more nuanced, cinematic work that communicates the unique story of the property, which I feel is a good match for the Sotheby’s International Realty brand.
The sample on the left features a stunning Artisan Sotheby’s listing from Randy Mack and Heidi Faulkner, and was chosen to appear on the Sotheby’s International YouTube channel. On the right is another Artisan Sotheby's listing - a charming creekfront gem for Doug Bohling.
