POSTPRODUCTION SUITE RENTAL - RATES

It is always tricky to estimate the time it will take to complete the postproduction of a short film. It is even more difficult to justify renting a costly postproduction suite when a personal computer with editing software allows for an acceptable end result.

We believe you shouldn’t have to settle for “acceptable”. We have decided to make our pool of equipment available at a very low cost so you can achieve professional results without breaking the   bank.

Pay a fixed amount based on the length of your short film and take all the time that you need. You can devote all your energy to your creation without worrying about your bill rising day by day.

POSTPRODUCTION SUITE RENTAL – HOURLY RATE

You can also rent the postproduction studio for $10/ hour if your project is supported by Spira but you only need one-time access to the suite. For projects that are not supported by Spira and don’t meet the “independent” criteria (such as commercial/corporative productions), the hourly rate is $45/h. If your project is independent but has not been selected to be supported, please call us to get our rates.
