How much does a Corporate Video cost?

Corporate videos are not productized so they have to be quoted on a per project basis. To determine the cost of your video, we ask 9 key questions. 

  • Why do you want to create a video?
  • How long will the final video be?
  • How many video deliverables do you require? 
  • Number of Shooting Days

  • How many people will there be in the video(s) and in what capacity? 
  • Are you providing the talent or do you need actors?
  • Will you require any motion graphics or animations? 
  • What is the deadline? 

Having said that, the average cost to create a video is as follows… 

On the low end, you have freelance videographers and new businesses which will charge under $2,500 for a video. On the medium end, you have production companies that have been in the game for over 5  years. These companies will charge anywhere from $3,500 to $10,000 per video on average.
