Frequently Asked Questions

What are the steps to booking a party?

There is a 50% deposit due to reserve the date.  We will send you a birthday agreement as well as a link to make the deposit.  Once you are have made the deposit, we will go ahead and reserve a date for the pre-production video chat session to plan the big day!

What is the ideal number of guests for a party?

We can accommodate groups of any size, but do need to know in advance and when booking the party if it will be larger than 20 to make sure we secure the proper space.

For filmmaking parties we recommend up to 17 guests maximum, while the music video parties can be larger.  Animation parties can also be larger groups.

 

Get in touch if you’d like to chat about it!

I have a 5 year old, will this party be appropriate for them?

Absolutely!  Our experienced team of educators and filmmakers can work with any age.  We are confident that your child and their friends will have a  truly spectacular time making cinematic magic!

Can I have food at the event?

Yes.  Generally we take a snack or pizza break half way through the event, followed by cake or cupcakes at the very end of the party.  We offer catering options as well for guests and even the adult who may stay.

Are costumes provided?

Because the parties are so customized and unique from one another, we do not provide costumes in the basic packages.  We do provide props that are vital to the story, and discuss with you what we will bring.  We offer costume packages as well if you’d like us to order some fun props for the guests to take home.

When do you offer birthday parties?

Anytime!  We work with you to find a time and date that works for you.  Parties are subject to availability.

We have a specific idea I don't see listed, can you do it?

We love filmmaking, and love projects that are very unique and different.  From recording a live band for a music video, to doing music or mixing stop-motion with live action, if your child can think it up, we can make it happen!

Can parents stay during the party?

Birthdays are drop-off events, we ask that if parents want to stay, that they keep the noise to a minimum and watch the big production.  If you’d like parents to stay, we have premium spaces that can accommodate a large group of parents for a fun social gathering.  Let  us know!

After the party, when do I get the video?

Roughly 2 weeks after the party, you will receive a private password protected link to your child’s professionally edited film.  Want some changes?  We offer 1 round of revisions as well if there is something you’d like different.  You can also download a copy for yourself online.

 

Want a DVD?  We can print you one up for an additional fee.

I want you to handle some of the details, can you do that?

Yes!  We offer several add-ons to make the day easier for you!  At booking you will see the various options and be able to select what makes sense for you.

My Child Doesn't have an idea for a movie, what do we do?

No problem!  During the pre-production planning session, we will work closely with you moviemaker and plan out a truly unique and special ides for their birthday party film.
