We utilize the Discovery Phase as a way to understand how we can best develop and deliver the project scope without over-staffing. Due to Covid-19, ArchiteX is offering customers the option to hire us for the Discovery phase independently of a full event contract. The discovery phase consists of the first steps of work required pre-event regardless; and, when utilized independently, will produce a much more accurate estimate and execution plan for the rest of the event's production timeline.
If the independent Discovery Phase option is utilized, it will be structured as a flat fee. If you decide to continue working with us past the Discovery Phase and move into Pre-Production and Implementation, the relationship will shift into a pay-as-needed relationship. The hours spent in Discovery will roll into the rest of the contract, and after the event ends, all hours spent will be billed, adjusted either up or down.
While crafting the vision for your event, we work with you to find the right balance between efficiency and production value, and below you’ll find the building blocks behind our process to bring transparency to our pricing. Final invoices will always be modified to reflect actual hours worked.
Please note: For show days, all booked roles are subject to 10-hour minimums for the day
For pre-recording and rehearsal sessions, all booked roles are subject to 5-hour minimums for the day.
All roles are subject to overtime rates if needed.
Other potential costs

Enhanced camera kits or studio rentals
There are many cases where roles are combined, so a single person can operate as two or more roles. Sometimes the opposite is true where roles need to be split amongst multiple people. For example, on a complex show you may need two graphics operators, one dedicated to titles and one managing slide decks. Regardless, this definition and assignment of responsibilities allows us to systematize our work, bringing you the best possible product while approaching each project with an attempt to be as efficient as possible.
