FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Studio KX was formed and is based in Central London. We’re proud to work in such an exciting, diverse city and love the wide range of projects we get to work on here.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! One of the perks of the job is being able to travel worldwide to work on incredible film projects. Over the last 12 months we have worked in four different continents, in over 20 different countries. We go wherever the project takes us.
WHAT SIZED COMPANIES DO YOU WORK WITH?
We work with companies of all shares and sizes, in both London, the UK and further afield. Whilst we love working with big corporations, there’s something incredibly exciting about taking a young brand and watching them grow with video content. We love becoming an extension of your team!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We use a wide range of camera equipment, selecting the best and most suitable for each individual job, from drones to gimbals, cameras and lenses. Having said that, we mainly work on Red cameras, synonymous with Hollywood blockbusters, to provide the very best picture quality.
DO YOU WORK WITH AGENCIES?
DO YOU OFFER LOCATION SCOUTING?
Yes – depending on the budget, as part of our pre production services we are able to scout locations, both in London and further afield.
CAN YOU SOURCE ACTORS OR INFLUENCERS?
Yes – working in London provides a huge advantage in terms of sourcing actors, with a huge wealth of talent based here. We also have great connections with several influencer agencies.
HOW FAST CAN YOU MAKE A VIDEO?
The average timescale for a video is around 10 days (we also work on huge shoots that can take months to produce). However, we believe video should be fresh, engaging, and most importantly… relevant! For that reason, we can arrange a faster workflow for projects that need to happen right away. As an agency we keep things intentionally lean, working with a small but incredibly talented team of in house creatives, meaning no outsourcing, and no delays!
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE PRICE OF A VIDEO?
That is completely down to the production and your budget. Pricing starts from £1,500, with our average pricing for a project being around £6,000. Some larger products for large corporations have totalled around £80,000 per year on their video budgets.
The main components when factoring total costs are –
- Number of crew members required
- Script writing
- Make-up artists
For example, a simple one camera shoot at your brand HQ, with one day of filming and post production would cost less than a shoot requiring multiple camera operators, travel, script writing, a sound crew, the addition of animation or motion graphics, the hiring of acting talent etc. It is important when budgeting for video to consider which sort of price point you sit in, and the production value you are looking to achieve. There are no hidden costs when working with us and we do whatever we can to understand each individual project and budget.
DO YOU OFFER DRONE FILMING?
Yes! Several of our team are highly experienced drone operators with all the necessary permits and licenses.
DO YOU OFFER ANIMATION?
Yes we do. Whether your project is entirely animated, or live action requiring some animation, we have a fantastic team of in house animators.
CAN YOU PROVIDE MUSIC FOR VIDEOS?
Yes! We work regularly on shoots within the music industry and have built up a wide range of contacts, from composers to producers and session musicians. We are one of the only agencies in the world that offer tailored musical compositions for our films.
DO YOU OFFER PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES?
Whilst we primarily market ourselves as a video production agency, we have several incredible photographers on our books, specialising in product, corporate and model shoots. We offer beautiful still photography alongside all of our films. Find out more here.
