How much does animation cost? The cost of an animation or explainer video is based on several variables. The style of animation, video length and production value, will determine the video production cost.
While you can find some cheap DYI options online, creating a custom animated video requires a team of creatives to develop the video concept, write the script, draw up a storyboard, create the illustrations, voiceover, and finally animate the video.
Explainer video production costs can range anywhere from $2,500 – $30,000, depending on several variables. These include the production company you’re working with, complexity of the project, style of animation, length of video, and more. There’s no one-size-fits-all.
We understand that the cost of video production for a high production value video may be out reach for some. Its also important to note that creating a video that delivers tangible results is a tedious manual production process that requires careful planning and development — 4-6 weeks on average. We wish there was one magic button somewhere, but no, there isn’t.
