Video production can be a very rewarding opportunity for a municipality looking to improve their communication and services to their residents. Here at GovUnity we offer everything that is required to produce the video that you have in mind. Now when a video is produced there are multiple stages that are required to get the best result. To create a professional piece of video you need to have three main parts directing the shoot, shooting footage and editing that footage. GovUnity covers all these three aspects and when it comes to the directing portion, we absolutely hope you join so we can portray your vision. If you don’t have any ideas on your video that is fine too, because our videographer has 8 years of experience and has no shortage of suggestions and ideas.
Justin McKinney is in charge of the video production. Justin has a Bachelors degree in Broadcast Journalism from Kent State University, one of the nations top broadcasting schools. He began video production in 2011, and has worked on multiple professional jobs since. One of his first accomplishments in videography was writing, directing, shooting, editing, and even a little bit of acting in a feature length film that debuted in a local movie theater. He also was one of four members to create a successful YouTube channel while attending college, has competed in numerous film festivals and competitions, sold a High School Football Preview show to 1590 WAKR in Akron Ohio called “Under The Helmet”, and produced numerous news broadcasts at TV2 KSU. These are just a few of his accomplishments in his 8 years of working in video/film production. With his passion and expertise there will be no shortage of ideas when it comes to the final product you have in mind.
Govunity offers some of the best equipment on the market. Our go-to camera for professional videography is a Nikon D3400 camera. It is one of the best quality DSLR cameras that are available for professional video. It offers 1080p resolution video at up to 60 frames per second, which it also matches in audio quality. As well as video features, the Nikon D3400 has an ISO range of 100-25600, an 11-point autofocus system and continuous shooting speeds of 5 fps. We offer a variety of lenses including a 55mm and 300m. Each camera can be equipped with Shotgun, Lavalier, Bidirectional, and Boom microphones. All lighting accessories are included as well to maximize the shot.
The price for video production varies depending on the municipalities’ vision, and the overall amount of production and equipment it would require. Our average cost is $85/hour, and this includes all equipment, shooting, editing, and directing of the video. Now this hourly rate can change depending on the length, quality and depth of your video. For instance a 2-minute promotional video is going to take less time than other longer projects, but if that 2-minute video is loaded with graphics and post-production editing it may affect the hourly rate. All questions and concerns about cost are finalized before beginning the production, and will not change after coming to an agreement.
