How much does a 30 second video cost?
Updated: Feb 15, 2022
This was a very good question, pitched to me by Justin from www.ninepoint.co.uk design consultancy.
Video is bespoke so I would first of all recommend doing some research yourself, or engage with a video production company. A reputable video production company ought to be able to give free quotes based upon a three tiered quality approach. Just to give you an idea; a 30-second piece to camera like this is not going to be anywhere near the costings of a 30-second commercial that requires bespoke or stock film footage.
For example: A city university above the line commercial that Jade produced, required 100 cast crew and multiple locations. The cost very much depends upon what is in front of the camera. Any cost outside of that, is based upon equipment calibre and the level of talent employed.
Time is also an essential factor of the costs, along with travel.
For instance: A 30-second piece to camera could take 20 minutes to record, but it could also take 2 hours. This is dependent on the crafting of the performance and also the courage for the experience.
Due to the set up time we would recommend filming for a half-day but to capture multiple videos like this one featured. We work passionately to save time and also save money to get the best features for you and your audience.
