How many different locations are allowed for the shoot?
Technically, you can have as many locations as you want. But, the more locations that you choose adds to your bill of video production costs. A typical shoot includes one to three locations. That does not mean that one to three locations is the same price. Two will cost more than one and three will cost more than two. Get it? Every different location that you want to include in the video causes the crew to pack up all of their equipment and transfer it to another location to then unpack it all, again.
It is more of a disturbance for the crew to do so opposed to being a creative element in your video. The production crew’s time is precious. A better solution is to use a green screen. Using a green screen allows you to be in a few locations without actually being there! And, it is easier for the production team because they only need to be in one place and set up the equipment once. Some video production companies do not have their own green screen in-house, but we do. AND, we have all of our own state-of the-art equipment. Boom. Try to beat that deal.
