How much does video production cost?
Updated: Jan 26
First, let me say that you don't have to be too precious about your production value. Your daily content (especially shorts & reels) doesn't need to be Oscar worthy. It's really not about that. Those tik-toks are cool, those shakey selfie videos, with bad audio.. sure! And you should keep doing those, but don't you also want something better for your business? Something to make you stand out from the crowd? 🎥 I film, edit, teach and place content.
But let's be real, who wants a cheap, subpar video that looks like it was filmed on a flip phone? As a freelancer with thousands of videos online, across multiple channels, with millions of views, I can attest that the quality of your video directly correlates with the success of your content. So, if you want to stand out from the millions of videos online, you're going to have to invest a little more.
The sweet spot for video production cost is typically between $1,500 and $3,000, depending on the complexity of the project and the level of production value. This cost includes pre-production, production, and post-production. Pre-production includes planning, scripting, and storyboarding. Production includes filming, lighting, and sound. Post-production includes editing, color grading, and sound design.
But before you start budgeting for your next video, remember that the cost of video production is not just monetary. It also includes the time and effort put into the project by the producer and/or the entire production team. A full professional production team can make your videos even more costly, and may not always be necessary. I will bring a level of expertise and experience that will elevate your video from amateur to pro. As a "solo-artist" I am able to film, produce, edit and market your videos. Keeping things concise and prompt. No need to hire multiple companies. Plus, I guide, teach and assist you on how to operate your profiles.
In addition to my video production skills, I am also able to build custom websites and apps for the app stores. This allows me to offer my clients a one-stop-shop for all their digital needs. Investing in quality video production, as well as a custom website or app. Consider even website optimization, and the proper placement of
your online videos which can be embedded into your websites and emails. Video campaigns significantly increase the success of your online presence and business.
In conclusion, the cost of video production and website/app development can vary greatly. It all depends on the length and quality of the videos or the complexity of the website/app you want to produce. But, as a freelancer with thousands of videos online, I can attest that investing in quality video production and website/app development is well worth it in the long run.
