There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it...

     -Alfred Hitchcock Film Director for "Psycho" "Vertigo" "The Rear Window"

 

 

 

DeWitt Jones have been directing films since 1991. His approach is pure storytelling, pulling the audience from their world into his imagination.

 

Full length feature film:

 

$5,150 flat charge for Monday through Friday (excluding weekends and holidays) 30 consecutive shoot days which covers a month and two weeks or a 6 week shoot. There is also an additional $50 charge for each additional day pass the 30 day mark:

 

Inevitable circumstances that pushed principle photography pass the 30 day mark such as: weather, injury, illness, crime against cast and or crew where the results would prevent punctuality or availability of talent to commence work in a timely manner to get principle photography finished within the scheduled allotted time, reasonable accidental scheduling accidents and or mistakes. The measurement of the accuracy for the reason for the scheduling accidents and or mistakes is at the digression of DeWitt Jones and his management staff.

 

31 days or more shoot days is $200 a day.

 

This rate is applicable outside of the $5150.00 30 day rate. For an example: If the client/producer’s production mandates a 45 day shoot, the client/producer’s payment is $9,000.00. The client/producer’s 31 or more day shoot does not qualify for the 30 day package. Therefore the client/producer can’t request the 30 day package rate and the additional $50 per day knowing 45 days is needed for a successful shoot. The additional $50 a day for the 30 day package only. For the inevitable circumstances that pushed principle photography pass the 30 day mark such as weather, injury, illness, crime against cast and or crew where the results would prevent punctuality or availability of talent to commence work in a timely manner to get principle photography finished within the scheduled allotted time, reasonable accidental scheduling accidents and or mistakes.
