Media Button Video Production

We make premium
more affordable.

At Media Button in all projects we strive to find the right balance between being incredibly creative, innovative and engaging, and staying true to budget considerations.  It is ingrained in our process to seek out cost-efficiencies and opportunities to add value, to ultimately elevate the production or save money for the client, or both.

When it comes to working with not-for-profit organizations we take it one or two steps further.  For qualified projects we offer special not-for-profit rates and in some cases even contribute by providing additional services, equipment and guidance.

Video can be one of the most powerful and effective mediums for getting a message out, for educating an audience and for eliciting an emotional response.  Our team of talented professionals and artists take pride in giving back where we work and play. And we aim to make video an affordable and valuable option for not-for-profit organizations big and small.  Call us to find out how we can help!

Tips for keeping costs down

  • Keep it simple. There are many ways to effectively deliver your message and get your point across. Keeping your vision simple and focused can help reduce costs by saving time, locations, props and other elements that can add up fast. If you don’t have Spielberg’s budget, don’t plan on filming ET.
  • Use your own people, locations. One way that many organizations keep budgets down is by using their own people, locations, props, etc. Even the most mundane location can be dressed inexpensively and avoiding talent fees and rental costs, especially in major centres where film companies tend to pay big bucks, allows you to use your limited budget dollars towards filming and editing instead.
  • Be prepared. Depending on the production, size of crew, equipment used and so on, filming costs can be pretty significant. Being well prepared to start quickly once your video crew has arrived and to not have delays during the filming translates to cost savings and/or added value. Ensure that you’ve prepped your location and anyone involved. Clean up and prep the area for filming ahead of time. Turn off phones, buzzers and anything else that might make sound or disrupt a take.
  • Leverage the production. Keeping costs down is important but another way to add more bang for your buck is to find ways to leverage the production. Capturing a few extra soundbites or quotes during an interview for example, that could then be used in a future video or as mini-vignette video on social media.
