Aja Vickers Media Services
Videos are such a great way to quickly inform, sell, and engage your audience because they are easy to digest. Typically no longer than 2 minutes, our videos combine stunning imagery with a call to action. They are perfect for businesses, non-profits, and artists but can be applied to other things as well. Our services first start with a conversation to discuss what you’re looking for. After that, we figure out the details and discuss your budgetary needs. Then we get to work!
You may be asking yourself, “What’s the difference between your video and film production services?” Well, films are longer are more in-depth than video. They go beyond the surface and they seek to explore a business, person, or idea a little further. You may feel 1 to 2 minutes may not be enough to tell your story and believe it or not, some people still like to watch things they can sink their teeth into. That’s where a professionally produced film can be a great asset to you.
Photography is still such a great way to tell a story, sell a product, or send a message. It’s simple, direct and very effective. Photography can be so many things ranging from informative to artistic. It really just depends on your needs and what you’re going to use the images for. So let’s talk about it! We can create something that will showcase the best of what you have to offer and help make your ideas a reality. From concept to creation, our photography services are top tier!
What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
Perfect! Thank you! Extraordinary work! The video is exceptional and the photos are by far the best I’ve seen for Mark’s work. My husband specializes in Architectural photography and works with a lot of builders around San Antonio and the major hotel chains all around Texas, so I know what a difference great photos make in marketing. I’ve been after Mark to get better photos and I’m so happy to see these.
I’m excited to have these to use in marketing to showcase the true quality of Mark’s work.
Thanks so much!Cyndy Schatz
Aja provided our company with a turnkey solution to our marketing media needs. She helped develop the concept from inception to completion. She gave me options when I asked for them, and took the reigns when I asked her to. It honestly felt like having a partner in a process that was very overwhelming. She was very clear in communicating to me her interpretation of my abstract ideas, and what it would take to tie everything together into a fantastic end product. Unfortunately we had some logistical issues on my end just before filming began, but Aja adapted and made it work with what we had. I could not be happier with the end result, and post-project service has been outstanding.Craig Burkholder
Frequently Ask Questions
What exactly does your company do?
My company specializes in video and film production, but also does photography as well. We’re involved in everything from start to finish. That includes everything from concept creation, to location and talent scouting, writing, shooting, editing, and motion graphics. During the process we stay in close communication with our clients. We want to make sure they know exactly what’s going on every step of the way.
How long does a video or film shoot take?
It varies greatly. For videos we can typically get most things shot in one day. Some things only take a few hours and sometimes shoots can happen throughout the course of a few days. Film production, on the other hand, can last for weeks or months. You will be given an estimate of this time once we’ve sat down to discuss the project. What I can tell you is this, everyone’s time is precious and we take that into consideration on every shoot. We make sure that the day (or days) is planned out to the last detail, an agenda is given to everyone, and that we stick to the schedule.
Do I have a say in the editing process?
Absolutely! Some of my clients are very hands on when it comes to choosing shots and I welcome that. Other clients prefer me to do my magic and give me full license to do things as I see fit. It all depends on the level of involvement you want to be in. If you have any suggestions or think things can be done better we want to hear it. Let’s create together!
How much does a video or film project cost?
That’s a very good question that can be tough to answer. As a general rule the investment for a video of film project is $1,000 per minute of the final project. This can vary depending on the level of production you’re looking for. If more crew or equipment is needed then there may be an added investment. I suggest we sit down and have a conversation to discuss your budget and goals for the final product.
How long until I receive my completed project?
That depends on how much video was shot and how long you’d like the video to be. If there are several days of shooting it will take a few days to go through all the video to pick out the best content. For video projects we typically try to get the project back to the client for review in about a week. Then you can decide whether any changes need to be made. Depending on the level of changes needed it can take up to 3 days to get the final cut back to you. Film projects take more time and it may be one or two months after shooting before we can send a rough cut. Clients are allowed 2 project revisions, if more is wanted there is an extra charge.
Can I get a combination of video and photography services?
Yes, of course! In fact, we do that quite often during events, corporate, and non-profit shoots. This is a great way to gather a lot of content for your branding materials, website, and social media all in one fell swoop.
