How Much does a 1 min to 10 min Explainer Video Cost?

To answer this question, we’ll need you to take in consideration the fact that there are types of explainer videos.

This being said, then you will need to take several factors in consideration:

  1. Video Length: How long the Video should be?

    The price follow a linear increase, meaning that buying 2 minutes video costs usually twice the price of 1 min video.
    We offer our service at an incredibly low price tag of only 60$ per minute.

  2. Video Quality: How good your Video should be?

    The quality of execution have a multiplying factor on the video price, meaning, depending on quality the price of video per minute can increase or stay the same. For example: Changing from basic to average quality multiply the price by 3, changing to top quality multiply the price by 10.

  3. Deadline: How fast do you need the Video?

    On average a well crafted video takes us around 7 to 10 days, but sometimes we have clients who are in a hurry, that’s why we have acceleration option, but they cost more, and sometimes much more. For example ready in 5 days option is only slightly more expensive, but ready in 2 or 1 day options can double or even triple the price.

  4. Video Resolution: SD/ HD / FULL HD ?

    For internet purposes, an SD will suffice, if you need the video for a presentation think of ordering it in HD, if it’s for a TV spot or big screen, you will need a Full HD. Price wise HD is only $20 more expensive, so it’s not a big factor in the pricing. Full HD, can be around $40 to $80 more expensive, also not a big factor in the pricing.

  5.  Voice Narration: Do you need a Voice over the explainer video?

    Also not a big factor, Voice narration is priced on the basis of length and accent, meaning, a minute of voice narration + background music+ audio synchronization costs around $20 more, for 2 minutes you double the price, etc…
    But, if you require a specific accent, or language, the price would increase slightly usually less than extra $10.

How much would your video Cost?

If you are wondering about the cost, it means you want to have an explainer video made.
Here’s what is essential to know:
The length of the video depends on the quantity of information to explain, the quantity of information can be quantified simply by a simple voice narration.
So here’s the steps needed to estimate the cost of your video:

  1. Create a Scenario: how would you want your information presented?
    + tell a story : Joe is an artist etc …
    + explain a problem : Solar energy have a big problem …
    + other …
  2. Determine the length of the scenario:
    Read the text you created to have an idea of how much time is needed.
  3. Basic cost:
    Multiply the number of minutes you got in the previous step by $60.
  4. Quality video:
    If you are looking for a good quality video, multiply the price by 3 or 4 times, if you are looking for the best quality we can offer, multiply the price by 10.
