CENTONE PICTURES, LLC.

We are a group of filmmaking professionals based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our Production Company focuses on award winning features & shorts in digital and film format, whether its documentaries, narratives, music videos, promo reels, or commercials, we can easily write up an estimate on production costs, book crew, and produce to you, your final edit. If you know your budget and would like to move onto the production phase with our company, and would like an estimate, then reach out and contact us. If you have a new project but are unsure which production company to choose from and still have questions, then read on and use the contact form to reach out to us.

Our production estimate is free of charge!
So you’ve heard of the old saying, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”? Well, that’s true, although we can’t give you or your company a free lunch, we will go over your budget and determine the best production value for you or your company, and give you our estimate free of charge.

All we need from you are 5 key components:


Your budget will determine how large or small your production will be, and yes, we will work with you without cutting value in your project because we love what we do, but always remember, you get what you pay for or can afford. Think of your production as in investment and not an expense. You’re investing in your promotional video or commercial to sell your product, or an educational video to support your company or staff to invest in the future, or you may have a music video or feature story that you want to share with the world, and that’s a huge investment! Obviously budgets are the life line of the production. Our questions to you are, what can you afford and is what you want to accomplish doable within your budget? We can help answer those questions, go over your budget, and help you meet your production goals. We are in the business to help you succeed and to make sure you get the production and video that you’re looking for from the time of the pre-production conception to the final post production of the edit.

We’ll also scout locations for you, establish the crew call and crew the entire production from our vast list of freelancers, and write up call sheets, process and pick-up gear rentals, or we can include our equipment list for you and include that proposal into your budget, coordinate and schedule the entire production for the shoot schedule, and secure/license rights to footage or photos if needed.
