How much does it cost to produce a video?


Answer: It Depends!

When choosing a video production company, you will be quoted a range prices based on their understanding of the project. Be careful not to base your decision on the lowest price. Make sure you know what you are getting in that price. Insist on a breakdown of the budget items before signing a contract. This will make it easier to compare prices of different video production companies.

Quotes for video production are a consultative process to discover the details about the video project in order to give an exact price quote for the project.

This document was developed to share costs elements that every production company deals with to get you the quote for you corporate video project. Hopefully this will help you as you look for the best price and quality for your video project.

There are the ballpark figures that we often use to start the project discovery process are the following:

• $3,000 -$6,000 per minute of production
• $5,000 – $20,000 up to 3 minutes of video
• $8,000 for a complex 60 – 90 second motion graphic video with voice over
• $18,000 for a 2 actor three minute spot

• $3,000 -$6,000 每分钟的制作费用
• $5,000 – $20,000 长度到达3分钟的影片
• $8,000 对一个60-90秒的,并且有画外音的复杂动画项目
• $18,000 2个演员3分钟的内容

There are too many variables to give an exact quote on the spot. Do we end up at these prices? Usually not.

As the project scope gets defined and budgets are revealed, all parties move to a certian point of agreement.

Project A at $x,xxx.xx dollars. Sometimes the client gives in on production requirements and the producution company gives a little on price or hours to complete the project.
