How much does a music video production cost?
How long is a piece of string?
Excuse our flippancy, but sometimes we just can't help ourselves! You see, there really isn’t a standard cost for a video. If you want to be filmed driving down Oxford Street in a white Rolls Royce, or in a club with loads of extra’s, well, someone has to pay for all of that. We know how to make the most of a budget. We know that imagination costs nothing and can take you off in any direction, but knowing how to turn a vision into a reality requires more than just gung-ho!
So, there really can be no such thing as a standard price list for a video unless people start developing standard imaginations and expectations. BUT ..... What we can give you is a guide range for quality videos that we know can be achieved. We have also added some notes below that advise you on how to help us guide you.
Music Video Production Services Pricing Guide:
A - £1200 - £2000*
We take advantage of low cost studio space, which means evenings and weekends and sometimes this can mean very last minute. Your shoot may be one of two or three on the day, so you'll need to come prepared and ready to perform at your best from the start of filming. Our most popular videos in this price range include Performance Videos, Live Lounge, Interviews, and EPK’s.
B - £1500 - £5000*
The main factors that impact on the cost of a video are the people used and specialist equipment. Within this range we can supply all the above but also more detailed videos such as Behind the Scenes, Live Event Filming, studio based Narrative Music Videos including some Animation elements.
C - From £5000*
When we plan bigger budgets we invest in the pre-production process, the planning of the shoot and resolution of all the creative conflicts. We will be spending all our time on you and bringing in the crew and equipment to ensure the production values meet the requirement. Animation, Special Visual Effects – VFX and Narrative Music Videos all require this level of effort
