You’re on a tight budget, but you have to push a video out. Do all videos come with a hefty price tag? Not necessarily. Let us break down for you 6 types of videos you can pull off on a $5,000 budget.
30 seconds 2D animation
Perfect for explaining a process or disseminating information in an easy-to-understand manner, 2D animation allows you to illustrate scenarios that would otherwise be too expensive to create in real life.
Cost: $6,000 to $7,000
30 seconds Infographic
The term ‘infographics’ is derived from combining the two words information and graphics. As the name suggest, infographics uses 2D graphics to present information to the viewer in a clear and concise format. Such videos are capable of containing tons of information that are easily absorbed by audiences.
Cost: $5,000 to $7,000
2 minute photo / video montage with music
A style of video popular for gala dinners, charity events, and press conferences, photo / video montages actually require more time to execute than you would think. However, with all the capabilities available in-house, including sound engineering, such videos can be easily delivered under $4,000.
Cost (with stock music): $3,500 – $4,500
Cost (with original composition): $4,000 – $6,000
1 minute event highlights
Despite the requirement of a full-day of shoot with a two-camera set up, event highlight videos do not end up breaking the bank due to the speed in which video editing can be done for this type of video. International summits, training events, marathons and competitions are the most common types of events that commission highlights videos. Any experienced production will be able to produce such videos with quality and speed at an affordable cost.
Cost: $6,000 to $7,000
1 minute talking-head interview
Talking-head style interviews are the easiest to replicate as the shots required are almost standardised across all topics and genres. Once you have nailed the script, everything else is a breeze as the Director will then plan different shots at various angles. After which, the post-production editing could be done on the day itself.
Cost: $5,000 to $6,500
30 seconds product shoot (in-studio)
The only real challenge for product shoots would be the setting up of lighting equipment. The remainder of the process simply involves shooting at different angles and speeds (frames-per-second) depending on the look and feel that best suits the brand, product, and objective of the video.
Cost: $5,000 – $7,000
