Dramatic and Compelling
Hollywood-style production on an Indie budget
The way we see it, big-budget, Hollywood-style movie production should not be reserved for blockbuster feature films only. At OpenHouse360, our veteran cinematographers create breathtaking property walk-through videos at a surprisingly affordable price.
We accomplish this by using state-of-the-art equipment that practically floats through the property. The result is stunning video footage that we edit in post-production to create a cinematic masterpiece.
Don't just take our word for it. Several studies show that homes marketed with video and other multimedia-rich content receive four times the inquiries of those that do not. Start getting your listings the attention they deserve today!
Digital storytelling at its best!
Every home has a unique story to tell. Our filming approach takes the characteristics of each property into account to determine the best style and format for the production. We also can include aerial video to show micro and macro perspectives of the property
Allows prospective buyers to get a birds eye view of the property layout.
Democratizing real estate media production
Advances in film technology make Steadicam a compelling and affordable option for your property-marketing plan. Using various gimbal-enabled cameras, we can capture stabilized, full-resolution 4K video at a fraction of what it would have cost just a decade ago.

Frequently asked questions
How much does a custom video cost?
Our videos start at $395 for propeties up to 4,000SF. For larger properties we charge slightly more because our film crew requires additional time shooting as well as increased post-production time. This fee included all of the custom titling (intros and outros), time lapse photography, and music licensing. We also produce a branded and unbranded version of the video for the MLS. On request we can produce a 60 second version of the video for Instagram.
How long does it a take for you to produce a steadicam video?
Each video is custom created based upon the property attributes. After a short walk-through and collaboration with the agent, we will come up with a game plan to determine key areas to feature in the production. In a typical 2500 SF home, we will spend 2 hours filming. Post production includes titling call-outs, music selection, optional voice over, and color correction etc. Your video is ready for distribution within 48-72 business hours.
Is aerial video included with the base fee?
While we charge a flat rate for interior video based upon square footage of the property, this does not include aerial video. If you would like to add aerial video, we charge an add on fee of $295 regardless of the size of the property.
Do videos need special staging or lighting?
Our equipment is designed to perform well without any artificial lighting, however, in some circumstances we need to add studio lighting to capture certain areas of the property. Please notify us in advance if you have this concern. The property should be staged just as it would for a still photography shoot i.e. free of clutter, pets, people.
Can we choose the background music?
We have a variety of stock music that is licensed for your use. We cannot use commercial tracks even if you have purchased them because of ASCAP rules. Let us know what genre and tempo and we will find the perfect song to compliment the final production. We have purchased a broad catalog of music, however if you want to include a particular track, let us know and we can purchase the rights for you (often at a discount)
How long are the videos?
We try to limit the size of the video to 2-4 minutes. People tend to have short attention spans and as such we try to feature the main areas of the home and a tasteful fast paced production. As they say in Hollywood "always leave them wanting more!"
What is your cancellation policy?
Our aim is to serve you and your clients. We offer 100% refunds if cancellation occurs within 24 hours of scheduled appointment. For same day cancellations we charge up to 25% of the production as we have already allocated production resources to your project.
How does it work?
How long does the video stay live on the web?
We upload the videos to Vimeo and/or YouTube. They will stay up there indefinitely or until your or your clients asks you to remove them.
