Light Form Films produces fine quality Web
Videos and DVDs of sporting events in the Sedona/Cottonwood area.
We can film an entire game for the team, or make an individual video presentation
for one athelete. Individuals and Teams might want the video or DVDs
to remember a special game or season of play for years to come. Individuals
can also present their video to high schools or college recruiters, for
team acceptance and/or scholarships. To see a sample of our web videos
Our filming rates are very reasonable, especially when these costs are
shared equally by team members and multiple teams.
We can film an entire home game* for your team. Filming rates are
based on the start-to-finish time of the game.
Our rates are not exactly fixed. There are a number of factors which
might come into play when determining what your final costs will be.
If you plan on having multiple projects, or multiple games in a tournament
setting, we will discount the rates accordingly. It is best if you
contact us first to let us know what you want. I am confident we
can work out a production rate that will fit your budget. The following
rates are a guideline for when just a single game is being filmed in a
$75 for games that last one hour or less.
$40 per hour for times beyond one hour (prorated in minutes).
can arrange to film away games. Rates will vary depending on travel
time and any overnight accomodations.
After the game film has been shot, we will produce your video in a number
of possible forms. The total cost of production can vary depending
on the kind of end film product you would like.
Videos or DVDs: Web Videos are a popular
form of video presentation. This allows anyone who is connected to
the internet to view your film... friends, relatives, recruiters, scholarship
committees, etc. We can put up a separate page on our web site with
your video, or we can supply you with the files to upload on your own site
or to YouTube. If you prefer having a physical DVD, we can burn them
for you and design an attractive cover using stills from the game, or images
that you provide to us.
player videos: When we film your game,
we can focus our camera on you as an individual player, or on a few players
who will share the filming costs. The final editing of your film
then involves selecting clips that show your unique skills. Filming
and editing rates are the same as for team videos. We can also schedule
a short private interview with you that will be included on the finished
video. This can be a very effective way to introduce yourself to
those who will be viewing the film. The interview can be done at
the end of the game, or we can schedule this at a separate time in our
home studio, or in another convenient location. There is no separate
charge to interview you after the game other than adding the interview
time to the overall time of the game. If you come to our home studio
for the interview, the rate is $40 per hour. ($40 minimum)
There is no extra charge if more than one person comes for an interview.
your video: There are a number of options
for your video. We can make a video of the entire game, or edit it
down to selected highlights, and add production values to meet your own
tastes. Good production values include titles, computer graphics,
musical backgrounds, stills or freeze framed shots, slow motion, cross
fades and credits. Special lower rates apply if you simply want the
full game without extensive production values. Talk to us about this.
If you want the video to have some high quality production values, then
we will need to know exactly what you want. You might prefer an edited
video of from 5 to 15 minutes long which shows the games highlights.
For this you may select specific clips that you want to include, or we
can select the highlights for you. Reviewing game film and selecting
clips can take considerable time, so this can be a bit costly for you if
we do all the reviewing. However, if you wish to choose the clips
yourself, you can come to our home studio and review the footage of the
entire game and select the clips you wish to include in your finished video.
We will set up the computer with your film and show you how to review the
film and how to identify your favorite clips. This will help to keep
your costs down.

options for your web video: Once we

If you wish to have your finished video burned on a DVD, we can provide
this finished service. DVDs allow you to archive your video for years
to come. Keep in mind that most of today's DVD players cannot play
High Definition DVDs. Your video can be burned on a Standard Definiton
DVD, which can be played on virtually all DVD players. DVD standards
are now in a state of flux, and it is unclear if Blu-ray, HD-DVD, streaming
or some other medium will dominate future viewing. At this time we
do not produce Blu-ray DVDs because these will not play on most of the
DVD players in use. We can produce HD-DVDs, however, these will play
only on some Apple products, but not on a majority of DVD players in existence
today. Hence, we normally produce only Standard Definition DVDs.
The quality is reasonably good, but it does not match the clarity of High
Definition television programs.
We put your DVD in an attractive case, and provide the graphics for the
cover. Below is a recent sample of one of our covers:
Rates for our DVDs:
$75 to create the cover, format the DVD file, and burn the first 5 DVDs.
$5 per each additional DVD.
