FAQ's about the community video special
How much will it costs and what is included?
The standard package is $750. It will include a 2-hour shoot, editing (sound and image), and delivery of a rough cut of your profile video within 1 week of shooting.
What will my video look like?
Here is an example of a recent video we produced that will be similar to our specials. Your video will feature an interview with a spokesperson (often the owner) interwoven with footage of your location, your product in action, customer interaction...anything that helps make your story come alive. Every video produced by Great Notion Creative is as unique and dynamic as the companies we partner with.
What if I want something other than a profile?
Other types of videos are available. We have produced splash page video loops, explainer videos, product launch videos, event videos, and everything in between. In some cases, additional costs may be necessary. But let us know what you have in mind and we'll do our best to tailor the package to meet your needs.
For example, this video we produced for The Portland Garment Factory, a one-of-a-kind manufacturing house right in Portland, includes a longer shoot, with more interviews, timelapse, a richer sound design and animation.
Can you extend the specials for multiple videos?
We can! Depending on the request, we can usually bundle videos, shooting multiple videos in a single session.
What will be involved in making the video?
We will send you a detailed information sheet about all aspects of the production as well as a questionnaire for you to fill out ahead of the shoot that will let us craft the most engaging and exciting story for your business.
Making a profile video is as easy as 1-2-3!
- Complete the intake questionnaire and/or have a short pre-shoot phone call with our producers

I think I want to shoot my own videos / I can’t afford $750. Are there other services available?
Yes, custom quotes can be prepared... and if you want to make your own videos Great Notion Creative staff can help you get started. Trained filmmakers and educators, we can help business owners avoid some of the common mistakes in shooting their own videos. We can consult on a range of topics from editing software, camera selection, lighting, and sound design. A one-hour consultation can help start your project off on solid ground. If you are not completely satisfied with your consultation, you will receive a full refund.
Did I hear something about free movie tickets for referring a new client to you?
Why, yes you did. If you refer a client to us that utilizes our services, we'll thank you with a $20 gift certificate to Portland's Laurelhurst Theater!
