01

Better value

for money

The important thing is that for both low cost and big budget productions you’re getting the absolute most out of your money, nothing is wasted and every choice is made to maximise results.

Important if you’re on a tight budget for sure, but just as important if you’re spending hundreds of thousands on a shoot.

If you think a video’s going to cost you –
wait until you’ve had a bad one made!

With others, you will

pay more and get less

When commissioning video, don’t think about the price – think about the value. The costs of a video can vary hugely, from a small scale clip to a big production. The question you should really ask is ‘What can I get for my budget?’ Dragonfly’s success, and the reason our clients keep recommending us, is down to our passion for taking a budget and really maximising the potential for the production, without cutting any corners.

It’s important to be up-front about how much you have to spend, and what you want from your video, then we can be up-front with you about your options and show you how to get the most out of your money.
