How Much for a Video?

‘How much’ is question I am asked the most.

An analogy might be to ask, “How much to paint a house?” So, would you agree it ‘depends’… on how large it is, whether interior and exterior, the condition of the walls, whether prep needs to be done to repair walls, molding or exterior before painting, the kind of paint, whether with primer, how many coats, whether faux or decorative painting, and the list goes on? This is the same idea for videos.

Whether the videos are for small businesses or for families, it truly all depends. Businesses can prepare for this ‘How much’ question by asking themselves:

• Who will be watching the finished videos?
• Where will your audience be watching (online, from DVD, on TV?)
• What is the desired length for the finished videos?
• How many separate videos for this project?
• What is the concept for the videos?
• What are the graphic elements to be included?
• Is there a need for Photoshop for graphics, or scanning?
• When and Where will the videos be filmed?
• Is there a need for lighting for filming?
• What audio is required?
• When do you need the finished videos?

Families can prepare for this ‘How much’ question by asking themselves:

• How many prints and how many digital photos will be included in the project?
• Will any videos be included?
• How will prints, photos and videos be delivered?
• What is the desired length for the finished video – or desired number of pages for a photo book?
• Where will your audience be watching (online, from DVD, on TV?)
• When do you need the finished project?
