I have a question,
I am just getting into more documentary style filming.

I use the canon XH-A1 with the netus 35 extreme adapter,
and have many years in video production, but my first with documentary style videos.

I am going to be doing a 5-10 minute video on the history and philosophy of a company.

All shot in HD and outputted to Blue-ray or DVD.

Can anyone help me with approximate cost...

I will be doing all the scripting, editing, filming myself.
And have another colleague of mine do the voice over.

Any thoughts would really help!

thank you

Well it's not too different from doing any other production budget. How many days/hours do you expect to work on this project? How many other people (crew/talent) will you need to hire to work on the project? What are your rental, equipment, travel, media costs?

Start answering these type of questions and making a budget. It'll give you an idea of how much to charge.
