Video Production Costs

Simple fixed costs with great ROI

How Much Does An Animated Video Cost?

How much does it cost to make an animated or explainer video?
Why not put it this way; how much is it worth to make a video that will help deliver the results you need?

Invest in a well-developed video that will give you great ROI instead of one that will save you money now because it will produce only poor results in the long haul.

DON’T make a video with the goal of “saving money”, you’re doing it all wrong. Focus on the value you’ll get from the video and what it takes to make a video that delivers the results you’re looking for.

Even though we try to accommodate smaller budgets, a bigger budget gives us more freedom to be creative and explore the best options to make your video the best it could possibly be.

To help you understand the costs of creating an animated video it’s also important to understand the process. An effective explainer video requires a strong team of creatives. Sometimes we may need several animators, with one working on 2D, 3D, and frame-by-frame animation.

Here’s a list of the team involved in each project and their role in the production process.

  1. Creative Director – Overseers the creative aspect of the project.
  2. Script Writer – Develops the story and writes the script
  3. Storyboard Artist – draws up the visual sketches.
  4. Illustrators (1-3) – Create the final illustrations
  5. Animators (1-5) – Make all the graphics come alive with animation
  6. Sound Designer – Composes the music and designs sound effects
  7. Video Editor – Brings everything together to create the final video

We were looking for a studio to create a product explainer video and came across Creamy Animation. Needless to say, we were impressed with the outcome. They did a fantastic job in creating a professional looking video for us. From the start, Larry and team provided detailed guidance on the different stages of the project such as scripting, voice work, and illustrations. In the end, everything came together beautifully. Highly recommend

We all love cartoon animations because they help us connect on a personal level and make us learn, laugh and cry. Sometimes it’s just hard to explain something without showing any people.

Great experience working with Creamy! They produced an explainer video for one of our recent marketing campaigns and nailed the final product. Larry understood our marketing message and vision right from the start, and provided quick turnarounds on the few minor edits that came up throughout the process. Very happy with the result, and look forward to hopefully having another opportunity to work with Creamy again.
