Costs

Hourly costs per class

This is the formula we use to determine costs creating a class. It is based on a final hour of video and what are all the costs connecting to that hour. For example, we pay a professional videographer $100 per hour, assuming that he will spend two hours for every hour shot.

Not every class we have requires each of these steps, which is why the prices above vary from class to class.
