Party Videography

The Party Video Page

Purpose
Create a fun and lively memory of your honoree surrounded by family & friends! We can also get together in advance and create a short video skit to be screened at the party.

Style
I remain very incognito much of the time but not invisible. My camera light can provide much needed illumination during important parts of the night when every needs to see you, not just the camera. This video is fun, festive and full of life - just like you.

Skill
Do you value a film school education from LMU and AFI? Then I'm the one for you. If you want stills extracted from the video and made into a terrific photo book - I can do that, too.

Substance
Your video is delivered to you quickly and electronically so that you can e-mail the vimeo link to your distant relations. If you want standard DVD or HD Blu-Ray copies - of course, you can order those anytime.

 

While considering those facts, please watch this 7 minute demo of my party videography work.

Party Video Prices

Simple Children’s Party
$300 for 3 hours coverage
These parties tend to have a lot of entertainers and I handle it with two cameras. One is on a stand and one is in hand-held. With these tools, I capture as much as I possibly can. Just keep in mind that if you have entertainment happening simultaneously in two different places, I need to be told in advance. Extra hours of coverage are $85 per hour after the first 3. The price includes all the editing and electronic delivery within about 3 weeks. The private video link will be e-mailed to you and you can share it and download the video. The video will begin and end with musical review videos. Use this price for parties for babies, preschoolers and children up to age 9.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah (Teen Party)
$600 for 4 hours coverage

These are usually pretty unique high-energy high-expectation celebrations that families have been planning for months. The temple service is covered discretely with two cameras in the rear. At the party, I continue to use two cameras - one on a tall stand and the other in hand. I get great low-light quality during candle ceremonies and great sound quality. If you are performing any dances, speeches or music, I’ll bring out a 3rd camera during that time, if needed. Extra hours of coverage are $100 per hour after the first 4. The price includes editing and electronic delivery in about three weeks. The private video link will be e-mailed to you and you can share it and download the video. Use this price for all teen parties including Quincenera, Sweet 16 or 18 etc.

Grown-Up Party
$400 for 4 hours coverage

These parties tend to be nights of speeches, dinner & dancing and I handle it with two cameras - one on a tall stand and the other in hand. I get great low-light quality by candlelight but I have a small camera light just in case. Extra hours of coverage are $85 per hour after the first 4. The price includes all the editing and electronic delivery within about 3 weeks. The private video link will be e-mailed to you and you can share it and download the video. The video will begin and end with musical review videos. Use this price for Anniversaries, milestone birthdays and graduation parties.

Photo Montage . . . . . . . $50/minute
Pictures are touched-up and edited with nice backgrounds and set to your chosen song. This is a show that you screen before a large audience. Requires 2 weeks advanced planning if you wish to show it at the party. 4 minutes minimum. 50 pictures minimum.

Motion Picture Show . . . . . . $100/ minute
Pictures are carefully touched up, color-corrected and sometimes colorized. This is a very polished, carefully edited show set to your favorite songs. You can request a few changes after the first cut is finished. If you want to change the music or tweak a lot of little things then be advised that my editing rate becomes an additional $50/hr Requires at least 4 days advanced planning if you wish to show it at the service. 6 minutes minimum. 70 pictures minimum. Video clips optional.

Photo Loop . . . . . . . $20/minute
Pictures are cleaned up and color-corrected a little bit and then laid down over a nice background with cinematic transitions. There is no music with this video because it is intended to run as a looping (or repeating) presentation on a screen during a Viewing Service or Reception Luncheon where people can come look at it when they want to. In this case, you will surely not want to hear the same song playing over and over again. 4 minutes minimum. 30 pictures minimum

Every video outside of Burbank incurs a travel charge of $1.00 per mile, round-trip.
