Video Production Cost Breakdown

There are lots of decisions to make when creating videos for any business either small, medium or large.

You will have to decide what type of video you want us to produce corporate video, explainer video, animated video, whiteboard, promotional video or any other, length, location, music, graphics, text and much more.

You have already guessed that all of these factors will have an impact on the price of your video.

We are well aware that your funds maybe limited and you want the best return for your investment. Creating a video production cost calculator can help you estimate the expenses associated with producing a video of your choice.

Let’s take a look at some of the major factors that affect the cost of your video but not limited to:

Time – The length of your video is a major factor in the cost. This has to do with the number of hours/days required to shoot your footage as well as post-production time.

Some production companies will also charge “day rates” for each day of shooting. Day rates tend to be higher and can include equipment, pre-production and much more.

Pre-Production Expenses – Depending on what you want us to do – scriptwriting, storyboarding, casting – if applicable and much more.

Travel Expenses – Depending on who you choose to film your video – there may be significant travel expenses included. This can include hotel rooms, meals, vehicles and more.

Location – In addition to travel costs, some locations may cost a fee. Try to find cool and appropriate locations that you can shoot in for free or for a minimal cost.

Equipment – Most video crews will charge equipment fees. Even if they own their own advanced equipment – these fees can cover insurance and other costs related to up-keeping the equipment.

Smaller crews may need to rent appropriate equipment depending on the shooting requirements.

On-Camera Talent – Are you planning on acting in your video? Do you need to hire a professional? This will add to your quotation.

Post-Production – Most of the hard work in creating a video happens after you finish shooting.

This includes editing the video, adding text and graphics, voice-overs, music and so much more. Each company will provide a certain number of edits so make sure to check that before getting started.

This is a basic template therefore you may need to add or modify categories based on your project’s specific needs.

Remember that these estimates are just a starting point and the actual costs may vary based on factors such as the complexity of your project, the level of expertise required and regional cost variations.
