What I love about the tool is that I can make consistent quotes with honest and integrity, plus there's enough wiggle room to account for variables and it puts me in charge of what I'd like to make on a project.

The pricing worksheet has saved me the most time in just being able to get accurate numbers on the fly to give to clients. I can create an estimate on the spot to use those numbers in my sales, whereas before I had to think things through and do the addition game in my head.

No headache, no time-consuming research for creating a "good" quote. Your worksheet made my life so much easier in regards to pricing projects. Thank you for the huge value you provide to us for a very small price.

Jake has created a video production pricing tool that will keep you honest and profitable. For far too long we have undervalued our productions. This tool reminds you of your worth and value. It's worth every penny! I've been doing this a long time - this is so headache-free!

Having used the Instant Quote Calculator myself, I can say that the tools that are incorporated into this handy tool are worth much more than the price tag. The ability to quote your client quicker and more confidently, is crucial. Not only is this a quote calculator for production, but it will calculate travel, crew, rentals, and postproduction costs. Everything you need, in one handy tool.

Purchasing this tool is not an instant download. You will get your worksheet within 48 hours of purchasing it. Because it is a worksheet, it needs to be set up for you. The tool is yours, and without your explicit approval, we will not use your quotes in case studies. An NDA can be signed if you'd like, but it is not required.

Now, this tool works when you do. If you do the work, if you're honest, and if you are legitimately passionate about telling stories, then you will find a client who wants to work with you. A lot of responsibility lies with you, such as your integrity, your ability to communicate, your willingness to listen and be humble, and so on so forth. Because these factors vary widely from person to person, I cannot guarantee results, revenue, or even clients lining up outside your door.

This tool is not a guarantee of earnings. 

Please note: to cut down on accidental purchases, you will receive a confirmation email once you purchase this; if you truly want to have this pricing worksheet setup and you did intend to purchase this worksheet, please respond to the confirmation email. Once, I hear from you, I’ll get your sheet set up, but please allow for up to 48 hours, especially if you order on a Friday or a Saturday. Thank you!


I'm so confident in the amount of work and testing that has gone into this worksheet, that I believe it is worth every penny, and I believe you as a microbudget filmmaker need this in your arsenal. That's why I'm offering a 7-day refund period.

I'm not going to do some cheap, sleazy, drawn-out refund process designed to get you to give up either. I have a family and responsibilities too.  

If you're not digging the Instant Quotes Calculator for any reason during the first two weeks, we'll refund you. All you have to do is email Shalom and say, "Hey, I want a refund because of ______________."

And that's all there is to it. Email Shalom, and we'll refund you. There will be no arm-twisting, no battery of questions, nothing. We want you to succeed in your craft, and we want you to be equipped to tell amazing, authentic stories of life change, and that's why we are here. 

Keep creating Bold Nation.
