How much does a Xian camera crew cost?

In the simplest way, the needs of your project help to identify the cost of a Xian camera crew. These needs will help determine if your project will need one camera operator to cover a few hours work, or if you need more than three camera operators filming footage throughout the day. Xian Camera crew pay rates are heavily reliant on the needs of your project. Other factors that can affect the price of a camera crew include the location, necessary angles, video length, equipment, and specialized services.

Xian Camera Crew Rates

Xian Camera department prices will depend on what type of video your business needs.

For example, if your outdoor event needs aerial shots from a drone, and a b-roll filmed with a high-definition Sony camera that is fitted with top-notch lenses, you may find that you require separate crew members to operate.

The price of Xian Camera Crew Rates will vary based on how long the crew will need to fully complete your production. Xian Camera crews typically charge half-day and full-day rates. 

Video rates and pricing in Xian

Generally, hiring a China camera crew for half of a day is going to cost you more than half of their day rate. The cost is high because the team has to cover the cost of not being able to plan for another project in the same day.

So, no matter the type and size of the project you have in mind, it’s better to hire a crew for an entire day. This will help you prepare for a high-quality production, because you will have plenty of time to film, and make any changes in your quest to deliver the best video.

Xian camera crew Prices

Xian camera crew Prices vary depending on the type of equipment and camera gear your camera crew will use, and for how long. All members of a camera crew are important if you want to end up with a quality video.

The director of photography, also known as the DP, manage the operations of the departments. While camera operators work different types of cameras, digital image technicians or DIT will do on-site image quality control.

Gaffers will be responsible for lighting the set and handling anything electric, grips will keep the set sage (crane operation, dollies, etc.), and swings will do all the jobs ushered by both the camera and lighting departments.

Without one of these crew members, your video would be impossible to create. You can find averages of Xian camera crew pricing, such as cameramen hire costs, below. These rates reflect labor only and not gear, for the most accurate estimate for your project contact us for a free estimate:
