Fear Not!
The Gorilla has answers.

In the spirit of efficiency, we compiled a list of our FAQs.

How much does a video cost?

This is definitely the question that takes the coveted title of Most Frequently Asked Question. It’s also one of the most complicated questions for us to answer. No two projects are the same and even giving ballpark estimates can be wildly inaccurate and sometimes, outright misleading. With that said, we promised ourselves we would find a way to answer this question and include at least a few numbers! While we don’t have an “average” or “typical” project cost, a lot of our projects tend to fall in the $15k-50k range. And yes, we know, that’s a big range!

How long does it take?

Most projects can be completed in 4-6 weeks, while some larger or complex projects take longer.

It’s not common, but we’ve also written, filmed, edited, and delivered projects in as little as a few days - so while more time is always better, it’s never too late to call or email. Our goal is to always find a way to yes!

At Gorilla Creative, your project lives under one roof from concept to completion, ensuring speed and agility.

Will you film my wedding?

Nope.

Can I stop by for a beer?

Yep.

Can you really fix it in post?

We hear from clients all the time that they are shocked with the things our editors, motion graphic designers, and colorists can do in post-production. While we can fix a lot of things in post, it’s typically faster (which translates to cheaper) and better to get it right during production. This is why we seem a little neurotic and focus on the details during production.

Why do you ask so many questions?

We like to start every conversation about a new project with a discussion about outcomes and goals. The better we understand things like who your audience is, where and when people will see the video, what actions you’re trying to drive and what emotions you want your audience to feel, the better we can help shape the video to drive your desired outcomes.

You say Gorilla Creative is a full service creative video agency. What does that mean?

Historically, marketing and ad agencies were responsible for the development and strategy behind brand messaging, but they seldom had the resources and expertise to create video content. Instead, they developed creative strategy and ideas in a silo and then hired other companies to film, edit, and animate videos for their clients.

As a full service creative video agency, we bring this entire process under one roof - literally. We collaborate with clients to choose the best type of video to deliver the results they need, refine or develop creative strategy, and then produce, cast, and film original video, and bring projects to life in post production with editing, animation, motion graphic design, music scoring, and color grading. We look at projects from a wholistic point of view to tightly control creative strategy, timeline and budget.

What measures do you have in place to make sure our project isn’t delayed?

More often than not, this question comes up because the video we are creating is part of a larger project or event, like a product launch, trade show or company all hands, or other major event, like a company IPO. Projects like this genuinely do have immoveable deadlines, and no reason – no matter how legitimate or serious – from us is an acceptable excuse for not delivering a project on time. We think this question is so important, we wrote an entire article about it. Take a minute to read it.

Who hires Gorilla Creative?

Our clients come from a wide range of industries, including tech startups and tech giants, biotech and medical device companies, SaaS, PaaS, and whatever-your-aaS. The one thing they all have in common is that they understand the important role video plays in advertising, marketing, sales and training. They value our experience and collaboration and want to work with a partner that is going to challenge their ideas, lead them through the creation process and help them push the envelope to create, test, and iterate measurably effective video.

What do gorillas have to do with making videos?

Everything.

You're in good company.

Our clients are real people, just like you. They like working with us and we think you will, too.
