that seems low for a big city like SF. perhaps you can try posting in the classifieds section and see if anyone just starting out or a film student would be willing to shoot for that price.

I would look around the local university. A lot of times the students will do these types of things very inexpensive because they need to build their portfolio.


I’m not from the area, but I thought  I’d give an idea! ;P

It depends on the quality that you want.  I attended the Wedding University and they said there that an experienced, quality videographer will run you about $3k or more in the Bay Area.  It checks out – from what my Fiance and I researched.  But like another bee said, if you find someone starting out or is a student, you might be able to find someone in your budget.

I agree with MissDW, local universities that have broadcasting majors are excellent resources.  I used to be a broadcasting student, and I made all kinds of videos for people, filmed and edited for around $500-$1000.  The quality obviously isn’t going to be quite as polished as a seasoned pro, but a lot of students are creative and willing to do a great job for money/experience.
