RETAINERS

Retainer Basics
Save Money and Time on your long & short term marketing strategies.

​What's a Retainer?
Retainers are essentially buying a set amount of a production companies time each month for the length of your retainer agreement.

Retainers are great to complete either 
fixed regular projects as apart of a long or short term marketing strategy, or even work flexibly on multiple different projects or strategies for internal or external use that are entirely dependant on your needs that month across the year.


Retainer Lengths
Retainers with me usually last between 3-Months, 6-Months and upto 12-Months, Retainers can be upgaded at anytime if you suddenly realise you require more days.

Why Retainers can be beneficial.
Retainers are like having an in-house creative video production team for less than the annual salary of an in-house video producer, also without the large and expensive equipment purchases, maintenance and physical equipment or data storage requirements.

Retainers help you achieve, long-term and short-term marketing goals while only paying for what you need as not everyone needs a 24/7 in-house Producer, Retainers give priority treatment and access on your projects around the UK and have lower-per project cost.

How it works
Lets say you needed to regularly produce a variety of different video content for either Internal and External uses within the company.

We discuss the work you would require known as the 'Scope of Work' which includes the Days & Labour required, Equipment and Expenses, Milage and optional Terms to then come up with a monthly cost that works for you.

The amount is then adjusted against the actual services I provide each month.
The monthly retainer is made to cover the costs of the actual service provided each month, additional costs are only if the scope of work changed significantly such as extra Days, Milage, Expenses like Equipment were required to complete the work set out that month.

Who is it best for?
If you know you need content shot regularly either for Internal or External use then a retainer can save you money and time without any sacrifice in quality, It's also more flexible knowing you have instant access to a video creative each month.

Example of a Flexible retainer, If you are producing a long-term documentary in a set location or around the UK but you know you might only need a semi-regular camera crew or individual to film for 2-3 days a month, or you need access to small or large video production year round a few days a month a retainer would make sense for this.

Example of a more Fixed retainer, If your business needs to regularly film and produce a financial podcast or informative videos for social accounts or to film and photograph new clothing collections for just a few days each month around the year, a retainer would also make sense for this.

Who is it not best for?
It's not ideal for large bespoke projects like High-end TV Commercials over £10k in scope as each project is far too individualized to price with a retainer, One project could require a £7k budget to produce and another could be £35k or £75k.

    Access to creative video production for less than the annual salary of an in-house video producer.

  • General Guidelines

    • The more fixed with what content we are producing each month helps reduce monthly costs.

    • The less fixed with what content I may be shooting each month usually increases costs as well there are higher chances of unexpected costs if the scope of work is suddenly much larger from one day to the next that was not originally agreed accounted for.

    • The longer the Retainer the larger the discounts and bonuses.

 

Retainer Conditions
Optional Terms and Conditions to be discussed.
 

  • Retainer Pricing
    Like projects the retainer pricing is entirely dependant on the project(s) and the Scope of Work you require completed each month.

    With Retainers however the costs are usually much lower by upto 10-20% or more as everything is already disscussed, pre-planned and already paid for.

  • Fixed and Flexible 'Scopes of Work'
    With a Fixed 'Scope of Work' I'm set out each month to produce a certain type of video content that we have already planned and discussed, the monthly cost reflects the work we expect todo each month and the time it takes.

    With a Flexible 'Scope of Work' I can be expected to produce a certain type of content but have more of an understanding that I could be used to film anything the company requires within that month within the agreed days.
    There would be additional costs if extra Days, Milage, Expenses and Equipment where required to complete the work set out that month.
     

  • Monthly Milage Allowence
    If your at a set location each month that's already factored into the cost at a standard rate known as (Milage Allowence)

    If you regularly require unknown travel amounts or a day suddenly requires more travel than usual to complete the job, I would need to charge that as an extra charge but this can be as low as 0.25p p/mile

 

  • Monthly Expire
    With Monthly Expire the days expire each month, any unused days at the end of the month will expire once the next month starts.

  • Monthly Compounding
    With Monthly Compounding it lets any unused days compound together into the next month based on the compounding terms set in the agreement.
    There is a monthly Compounding Cap which can be Discussed.
     

  • In-House and External - Equipment & labour
    All my 'In-House' equipment and labour is offered up at discounted rates with the equipment often supplied for free on my retainers.
