How much does it cost 1 minute video?May 5, 2022
Answering the ultimate question “How much does a 1-2 minute video cost?” is actually not as simple as it seems.
A Video production rate depends and varies based on the type of video, whether the client wants a simple video or a more complex one. The pricing depends on all the elements relating to the video production process. Elements that determined these estimated prices include how intricate the video is intended to be, the talents, the tools used, filming location cost, and other external things that could impact the price.
Every client wants different things, hence each video project pricing is going to be very different, unique, and customized based on the client’s vision.
The client and the video production company have to first meet and discuss the idea for the video, the storyline, the purpose, and overall the client’s expectations and wants for the outcome of the video. Only then, an estimated price could be expected after roughly calculating the needed tools, talents, and any renting costs necessary.
A client thinking of hiring a video production company to create a 1-2 minute video, needs to know all that goes behind the scenes and the efforts required to make a short video, to know where the estimated price comes from. By understanding the different aspects involved in the process, clients can know where all the money is distributed during the production and understand the value of the given cost.
Let’s break down how a video production company estimates the cost for a 1-2 minute video, to further understand how the budget is set.
A video production process usually requires a team of 4-5 people including a cameraman, 1st camera assistant, sound recordist, a production assistant, editor, and occasionally also a make-up artist and a stylist. The more talents and different locations needed while shooting the video could impact the price as well. A simple video with no voice-over needed will most likely cost less, than the ones that require a voice-over talent. In summary, a more intricate video that requires VFX (visual effects), will need more effort and will take longer to make, hence making the cost to be higher than a simpler video.
Clients need to consider all these services, and efforts involved during the video-making process, all in all, to understand whether they get their money’s worth or not.
