HOW TO GET A QUOTE
This bit's on the home page, but if you skipped straight here you should know; your video production process starts with an email or phone call to Alex Rollings, Talk To Camera's director.
Alex will listen carefully to what you're after and ask questions to understand your needs. Important things to cover at this stage are what you're looking to achieve, your message or story, your audience, your time-frame, your expectations and budget.
Alex will discuss ideas with you and aim to give you a ball park quote for what you want on the phone right away. If the ball park cost is within your budget, Alex will either arrange a face to face meeting to discuss the project in more detail. If there's no time for that, he'll write up a quote for you.
