Whenever we pull up to a location, folks are usually surprised at two things. The first being the amount of people and equipment it takes and the second, the time and energy we spend to get ready for their video. So let’s explore how long it takes to set up, in this episode of Video Answers.

It takes a lot of specialized equipment and experienced crew to pull off a video shoot, well. In fact, you’ll see in the video, a time-lapse of a recent set-up that we did. From the time we arrived at this location, to the time we began shooting, it took our crew of 6 about 2.5 hours to get everything ready.
There are actually a lot of factors that determine how long it takes us to get set up and ready to shoot at your location. Factors like the following:

  • the accessibility of the location
  • the size of the room
  • the ceiling height
  • the number & placement of windows
  • the time of day
  • the size of our crew
  • the number of people on-camera
  • the number of cameras

And that’s just to name a few!  With that being said, depending on the details of your shoot, we can set up in as little as 30 minutes for smaller, simpler shoots to as long as several hours for larger, more involved shoots.

The good news is, regardless of the size of your shoot, we take care of all those details so you don’t have to! It’s what we do, so you can focus all of your attention on your business.

Now, back to the question of, “How long does it take to set up for a video shoot?” Well, it depends. But regardless of how long it takes, we will always communicate those details with you BEFORE we show up. With that in mind, that give you an idea of how long it takes us to set up for your video.
