Video Production Costs

Explainer Video Cost

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.

A well produced video combined with a good video marketing strategy, does pay for itself in the long haul. A bad video is like a fishing rod without a hook — it will always catch you nothing, no matter how long it stays in the water.

To help you understand what our video production costs are based on, here’s what a typical production team looks like. In smaller studios the roles tend to overlap.

You can sometimes find the storyboard artist also taking on the role of the illustrator.

  1. Producer/Director: Overseers the creative aspect of the project.
  2. Story Lead: Develops the concept and writes the script.
  3. Storyboard Artist: Draws the storyboard sketches.
  4. Illustrators (1-3):  Create the final illustrations.
  5. Animators (1-5):  Create the motion graphics and character animations.
  6. Sound Designer: Composes the music and designs sound effects
