How much for a trailer?

Everybody’s first question to me is “how much for a game trailer?” My response is always, “What kind of a trailer do you want?”

Think of your trailer like a vehicle — after all, your trailer is the vehicle for your game online. So how much is a vehicle? You might find a used scooter for a few hundred, but you probably want a fully-equipped SUV that will cover you in any situation — which starts at a much higher price point.

Know what kind of vehicle you want? Great. Now we can figure out what kind of vehicle you can afford.

How much for a FULLY EQUIPPED Trailer?

These trailers are loaded. In this Tesla Model X of game trailers, just provide your game and I’ll take care of everything trailer-related. Sit back in the plush leather seating — that empowers you in the last string of crunch before your baby releases into the game-o-sphere. You pay for a quality ride.

Price: $$$$

My That Dragon, Cancer trailer shows this in motion.

How much for a CUSTOM Trailer (where devs capture the footage)?

You captured the game footage yourself (and you might even have an idea for how to use it). I take care of everything from there — so you can get back to jamming on your game. You get the performance and qualities of a FULLY EQUIPPED trailer, but you take the edge off of the production cost. You pay for a collaborative ride.

Ecotone’s Early Access trailer serves as an example.

How much for a LIVE  Trailer (with real players)? 

You want to know how people experience your game, so I put your game in front of real players. They play the game on camera (with sound) while I capture their in-game experience. I showcase their emotional highs and lows, providing the truest sense of what your game is like. Couch multiplayer and stream-friendly games come across brilliantly in this setting. Plus, your audience gets to experience true human emotion. You pay for an authentic ride.

Price: $$$$$

Case in point? My Threshold’s trailer.

How much for a consultation?

You don’t need somebody to make a trailer for you, but you do need a trailer expert to make sure your trailer kicks people where it counts. I’ll provide my trailer expertise at the cost of my time. You pay for expert advice.
