Our primary need for funding is to cover our monthly costs, which are about $15,000 per month. But many people prefer to give to a specific project, so here is a list of what we would like to do, and the costs.
iOS update ($6,000)
Android update ($5,000)
These are classes that are recorded and we are waiting funding to do post production (specifics below).

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. For a typical seminary level class with 20 hours of lectures, it costs us about $25,000 for recording and production.
Not every class we have requires each of these steps, which is why the prices above vary from class to class.
|Class costs||Cost/hour||Production / hour||Total / Hour|
|Transcription & edit||$20||4||$80|
|Total / hour||$265 / $415||23 / 25||$712.50 / $1,162.50|
*For classes that are already recorded, there is no recording or editing costs, just the color correction and rendering.
One-time costs per class
|Honorarium||$1,000 - $4,000|
|Total||$1,900 - $4,900|
