What does it cost to produce a video?
The cost of producing your video can vary widely. UW Video produces finished projects for as little as a few hundred dolllars and up to several thousand. The majority of our projects cost between $1000 and $3000.

A few examples of the factors affecting the cost of your video:

  • The level of consultation you would like to develop the look and feel of your video.
  • Length of the video
  • Existing footage vs new footage that needs to be shot
  • If custom graphics and animation are needed

Regardless of budget constraints we will work with you to create a great looking video for your organization.

How can I get my files to watch and upload?
There are typically two kinds of files that we deliver to clients: files for review and final submissions. We typically upload files for review to YouTube and change the settings on the video to “unlisted,” so that only people with a URL can view the video. Review files allow clients to take a look at projects mid-way through the editing process so that changes can be made for a final draft.
Final submissions can be delivered in several different ways:

  • Upload to our YouTube account
  • Upload to client’s YouTube account
  • Burn onto a CD/DVD that we can deliver via campus mail or hand delivery
  • Store on a hard drive that we can lend to a client via campus mail or hand delivery
  • Store on a hard drive provided by a client via campus mail or hand delivery
  • Upload the file to our FTP server that can be accessed and downloaded by client from any computer with internet access.
