Explainer Video Cost

How much does animation cost?

Explainer video production costs explained

The cost of an explainer video depends on variables such as the style of animation, video length and production value.

While you can find cheap DYI options, creating a custom video that delivers exceptional results requires a team of creatives. Our goal is to help you develop a creative strategy and concept, write a compelling script, draw storyboards, design high quality illustrations, voiceover, and deliver a video that will help you achieve your goals.

Explainer video costs can range anywhere from $2,500 – $25,000 or more. The final costs depend on the style of animation,  video length, and the production quality you’re looking for.

What’s involved in making a video?

Creating a quality video that delivers good results requires a well thought out video production process, and a creative production team. To help you understand what our video production costs are based on, here’s what a typical production team looks like. In smaller studios the roles tend to overlap.

  1. Producer/Director: Overseers the creative aspect of the project.
  2. Story Lead: Works with producer to develop the story and write the script.
  3. Storyboard Artist: Interprets the script through creative storyboard sketches.
  4. Voiceover Artist: Provides the voice that determines the tone of the message.
  5. Illustrator (1-3):  Creates the final illustrations that will be used in the animation.
  6. Animator (1-5):  Create the motion graphics and character animations.
  7. Sound Designer: Composes the music and creates sound effects (SFX)

A well produced video in combination with a good video marketing strategy, will pay for itself in the long haul. To make your life easy, we’ve made the cost of video production easier to understand with simple video production rates.
