DTX Media Pricing and Rates
Along with creating the best content possible, our goal is to be as transparent, fair and competitive with our pricing as possible to earn your trust and repeat business. Unlike other studios who charge low to shoot and hold content hostage, we never practice ‘bait and switch’, which means you will always receive and have a right to the full resolution digital files and content that you paid for, with no additional costs. (The only exceptions being the price of a hard drive and shipping in some circumstances and a marginal archival fee for anything over a year old). While these numbers should give you a great starting point on your budget, they do not account for any unknown factors and or requests. These prices are for work inside the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex, but we are happy to accommodate travel. We ask that you please contact us for an exact quote.

A producer is required anytime DTX Media is involved in the creative process primarily prior to the shoot (pre-production).
A producer works with our clients and the project coordinator to gain an understanding of the project goals and target audience, to help create a plan to best communicate your message, product or service. This process can include everything from, shot list, conference calls, to an in-person meeting, story board or script consulting, casting assistance, and location / set / studio consulting and management.
In some cases, a DTX Media , LLC producer is not required and our clients can operate as their own producer. As a rule of thumb, if our crew can arrive without having prior knowledge of the assignment, and film (either with no director or under a client direction), then a DTX Media producer may not be required.
