How much will it cost to create a video? 

Asking this question is kind of like asking how much does a car cost? The answer is – it depends! Are you looking for a lamborghini or a toyota? 

At the end of this blog post, we’ll go over some sample budgets but for now we’re going to go over the system we use to price our videos.

How we price our videos

Our process for pricing is to first have our leads fill out our briefing form followed up with a discovery call. In these two stages we diagnose what the client’s needs and wants are to determine what the video solution will be. Just like a patient going to a doctor. 

From there we’ll start to crunch the numbers together to create our estimate. 

We focus on three steps:

Pre-Production Cost – which consists of:

  • Communications 
  • Research and story development 
  • Cast and Crew hiring and coordination 

Production Cost – which consists of:

  • Cast and Crew 
    • Producer
    • Director
    • Cinematographer
    • Camera Operator
    • Grip
    • Makeup Artist
    • PA
    • Actors
    • Location rental 

Post-Production Costs – which consists of:

  • Timeline for the video deliverables
  • Complexity of the video
  • Number of deliverables  

Usually, a percentage breakdown is:

  • 30% for Pre-Production
  • 35% for Production
  • 35% for Post-Production
