Frequently asked questions
Do you have any additional fees you add on after the project is done?
No. Realeye Films has a ‘Bottom Line’ pricing structure. Whatever budget we agree to in the production agreement is the budget you will spend. If there are any additions due to production scope changes we will discuss and approve those before they are incurred.
Do you provide scriptwriting, or do we have to write the script?
How long does it take to make a video?
A typical 2-minute Brand Film typically takes 4-6 weeks from concept to delivery. But the production time for high quality video production does vary based on what we are producing. Most productions need a minimum of 2 weeks to complete, and can go up to 8 weeks and longer to complete based on how complex the production. For instance, longer training videos will take longer due to the length of the final product.
Do you charge extra for travel?
Realeye Films does not charge extra for travel anywhere in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. This is a very unique program at Realeye and something that enables our crew to work and establish great relationships with clients across the country. Currently Realeye has clients in Abu Dhabi and 5 countries in M.E.N.A.
Why do we need a professional hair and makeup artist?
If you are creating a narrative video with actors, or simply producing interview videos it is always a very smart idea to have a professional hair and make-up artist. This will ensure that everyone on the video is looking their best. Reducing shine on bald heads, getting rid of hair ‘flyaways,’ or just adding some color to brighten a face is all very important.
Can we use a teleprompter for testimonial responses?
We do not recommend using a teleprompter for anything other than direct to camera scripted videos. You may get the content exact but most people do not come across naturally when trying to read candid responses to questions from a teleprompter. It is better to be truly candid and real. READ MORE
How long does ' one production day' mean?
A typical production day is 10 hours long. However with the speed in which videos need to be filmed and edited this maybe goto 16hrs.
Should we film indoors or outdoors?
Depending on the subject matter we like to have a variety of shots in our productions. If outdoor shooting is possible we need to take into consideration weather concerns as well as environment issues like loud sounds, or people that may be milling about in the background.
Why should I hire a professional narrator?
A professional narrator is essential to making your video production successful. Many people do not think about the fact that the audio is just as important as the video, but it is. Stick with a professional narrator. It adds 2500aed to 3000aed
or so to the average production budget, but you will not regret this decision.
How much does it cost to make a video?
Production costs vary based on a variety of factors (final length, days of shooting needed, motion graphics and 3d animation needs, editing time, narration, music, etc). The average Realeye Films production starts at 10,000aed and goes up based on the services needed. For instance, if you were producing a promotional video with 3 days of filming, motion graphics and a narrator you would be looking at around 25,000aed for the production
How many people will be on the film crew when they arrive at our facility?
Our typical crew consists of 4-5 people: a Producer/Director, Director of Photography, Sound Technician, and a Production Assistant. Sometimes we will have additional production personnel such as a Gaffer or Production Coordinator. It depends on the project.
