by 3rd Coast Digital Films -

NOTE: All production is now in High Definition Format,

This video template is based on an original program designed by 3rd Coast especially for Star Service of Baton Rouge which cost Star more than 35,000.00. This is the quality of the program each of our customers receives.

Pictured at the right is the Campbell, Inc. DVD cover.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These videos contain the same information at each level about the preventive maintenance principles of your HVAC company.

With exception of interviews in higher levels of customization, each program is approximately the same length.

The levels differ by addition of customer testimonials, number of times we say your company name, and certain other changes if your company principal decides to appear in the video.


When we customize a video, we make it look like yours and yours alone, we focus on your company identity - and you decide what images to include. This keeps the customer focused on your Company Name, and on the business at hand.

How One Customer Uses Its Video Brochure (Click here)
 There are three basic levels of customization.
  • PRO
No matter the level, the video will look like your exclusive production, but each higher level provides more shots and mentions of your company name.

Each level offers
  • Full HVAC Preventive Maintenance video with Mike Miller (Star Service) as principal HVAC Consultant Spokesman.
  • Opening custom 3-D animation of your company logo
  • Your company name throughout narration
  • Your address, e-mail, web address and phone number(s)
  • Label art for the CD-ROM and video tape with your name, address, and numbers
  • Closing 3-D animation of your logo, with your company name, number, address, web address superimposed at end.
20 DVD's and 20 CD-ROMs for immediate use.

Additional copies of CD-ROM are 5.00 each. DVD's 7.00 each. (Much less in bulk of 100 or more) You may of course duplicate your own or at any duplication house..

NOTE: DVD/CD-ROM label is included on disk, enabling you to print your own labels for CD-ROM/DVD's you burn yourself.
Conversion of video to Internet video is available. We can post your video directly on your website (in most cases).  Conversion of video to DVD is available for an extra conversion fee of 500.00 We will convert your program to run as a DVD compatible with most DVD players and we can create your DVD disk to play as an endless loop for trade shows and kiosks. Additional copies are available 20.00 each or you may burn your own.
You may duplicate and distribute your program as you wish.
(Look at bottom of this page for ideas on how to distribute video brochures...)
We also have developed a web-video package (see bottom of page) that gives your salesmen state-of-the-art communication ability.
The investment allows you to make as many copies made as you wish. You may use your own local duplicator, or purchase from us copies of the labeled CD at 3.00 each for orders of 100 or more delivered in bulk without sleeves or covers, plus cost of shipping. Because the plastic shells may be damaged when shipped in bulk, we recommend you purchase CD jewel cases or other sleeves locally (Sam's Club, for example - 100 cases for 15.00).
Pro Level - 5,500.00
(You may upgrade from one level to another at a later time, at a cost of 3,000.00 per level. Yes, it is more than the difference in levels, which is your incentive to get the higher level now...)
  • We will place your name three times in the narration
  • Create 3-D opening and closing from your logo
  • Insert six shots of your logo, (someone working in your company shirt and hat), in the program.
  • This option does not include travel to your location or interviews.
Expert Level - 7,750.00
  • We will place your name nine times in the narration, and insert 12 shots of your logo, either on a shirt or hat, in the program.
  • One minute of script will be written about your company and added to the program in one block. This could be about special services, awards, a description of your locations, or some other aspect of your business you want to highlight.
  • 3-D open and close.
  • If you provide us with professional video of your business, we will add it to the brochure in place of some of the 12 shirt-shots.
If you provide travel expenses, we will shoot the video clips for you.

(Additional customer testimonials are 1000.00 additional each)
Master's Level - 9,950.00

We will place your name at least twelve times in the narration, and insert 18 shots of your logo and company pictures in the program to make it look like your exclusive production.

You may have us travel to your location to get the shots (travel expenses not included in price).
One minute of script will be written about your company and added to the program in one block. This could be about special services, awards, a description of your locations, or some other aspect of your business you want to highlight. 3-D opening and closing.

This level allows for shooting two interviews; 1) a customer testimonial at their location and 2) a company officer at the HVAC office.

Six clips of your company president or spokesperson talking about your services will replace the Bob Work portion of the Star video.

Additional testimonials or company personnel (30-45 seconds finished) are 1000.00 each.

Travel is intended for one full day of shooting (fly in, one night stay, fly out). You may request our cameraman to remain on location additional days to get particular shots, but there may be a per diem incurred. Setup of equipment requires a certain amount of time. Travel to locations to show particular work should be well planned, to maximize time available.

NOTE: Use of LINC LOGOS - Hays service chose to include the Linc Logo in their video and on their disk cover. This option is available for you also, if you wish.

 Champion Level - 29,500.00 this is a completely new 8 minute version featuring your people exclusively, patterned after the Star Video. We will travel to your location, interview your principals and customers, and videotape your people and resources in action. The only additional cost is travel. Web brochure for one location is included in package.
 Notes: Since Star Service is willing to allow us to use their brochure as a template, we can offer these low prices. Travel costs are actual expenses only for hotel, meals, fares, etc.
We wish to invest in the ________PRO   _______EXPERT  _______MASTER'S  Level.
