for a 5 or 10 minute promotional gig for businesses I would go with a packaged flat rate route if you have a tight production schedule in place that you can stick to.
I produce strictly :60 second web videos for business with no more than 24 hours turnaround time given to any project of this type. Time is broken up into story boarding, location shooting, breakdown, editing and sweetening, changes and approvals, then final edition to website and bulk upload to all social media sites – all within 24 hours – which is roughly two 8 hour working days- at a flat rate of $1000
16 hours is how much time it take me to produce 1 minute of quality video – the other 8 is a pad for any changes the client requests – which is time paid for anyway depending on how good the edit and final production turns out.
Figure out how many hours you think it will take to produce a 5-10 minute video and go from there…
For some this sounds impossible but I’ve been doing it for so many years and have become very proficient at it while maintaining creativity.
