We are constantly asked to produce music videos with a brief sentence and asking us to give a budget. Unfortunately its not that simple. Here we will set out the questions you must answer in your brief.

Production by Bangkok Video Productions 

STYLE
What is the style of your music video? Is it a pop-video with a big cast, is it a solo act in a studio, is it a country & western filmed in a C&W style. Tell us what you want to achieve with this video. Do you want a wide-screen video? r maybe also a vertical-video that fills your mobile phone screen.

LYRICS / STORY-LINE
You don't have to give us the lyrics, although it would help. But we do need to understand the story-line. This will help us select everything from the Director, to camera and lights to locations.

ARTISTS
How many main artists are performing in the video. Are they Male, female, adults teenager's or or children. 

PERFORMERS
Do you want backing artists or dancers or extras in your video. If yes, give precise details for each person. Their position and description (for dancers and extras).

LOCATIONS
What type of locations do you want to film. A beach, maybe several locations, maybe in a studio. Locations can be expensive and moving between locations time consuming meaning even more expensive.

CAMERA 
Do you have a preference for the type of camera? There are many types and prices. If you don't know, just say so, we will select the best camera for your budget and style.

LIGHTS
Do you require special lighting? Will you film at night? or in the day? inside or outside? Let us know if you want to create some special lighting effects.

WARDROBE
Are there any wardrobe requirements or will everyone bring their own wardrobe. If there are special requirements make a detailed brief.

HAIR & MAKEUP
Do you need a hair/makeup artist? Will you do your own? Will a friend do it for you? 

SPECIAL EFFECTS
Do you need any special effects? Fireworks? Blood and guts?

MUSIC EQUIPMENT
What music equipment will you bring? Will you really play them (and need electricity). Do you need extra crew to handle the music equipment or extra transport?

SET DESIGN
Do you need us to build or hire a stage or some set-design pieces?

PROPS
Do you need any props? A car, motor-bike? furniture? let us know.

SOUND
Will you play live? or will you mimic the music, in which case, will you need a play-back device? It can be a PA system style or just a CD/DVD/USB player style.

ACCOMMODATION
Have you arranged accommodation for your own team. If you film outside of Bangkok around Pattaya or Hau hin or in Ayuthaya it can be done in one day perhaps but if you go further North or South you will definitely need accommodation, not only for you but for your team, the film crew and any other extras or dancers.

CATERING
Do you need any ethnic food or special diets. Remember you will have to pay for the food for tthe film crew and any extras you hire, so consider this.

POST PRODUCTION
Do you want us to provide post-production services? If so let us know what you want the finished product to look like.

SAMPLE VIDEOS
Always try to send a sample video that is as close to your as possible or several videos, each demonstrating something that you want to achieve. Locations, style, etc. And don't forget to tell us what you like about these sample videos. Don't forget to send us a link.

COSTS.
The lowest cost film-only (not post-production) starts at about 50,000 THB day. That's a public location, no extras, just our Crew with camera & lights filming you (maybe on a beach) everything else costs extra and here are some resources to help you out.
