HOW MUCH DOES A VIDEO COST
Purchasing video production studio services is much like purchasing a car. A car can cost $20,000 with little to no added features,but the same car can also cost $40,000 if a buyer adds features such as leather upholstery, power windows, custom sound system, 4-wheel drive, etc. The reason why many shoppers get these options the first time is because they understand the importance of quality.
These same principles apply to hiring a video production studio. Options that can impact costs for videos can include the number of filming days and interviews, specialized equipment such as drones or Steadicams, and talent fees if the projectrequires hiring actors. With so many different options available, the price for a video can vary drastically. Unfortunately, some people only focus on the initial cost of the video with the goal of finding the cheapest company, therefore sacrificing strategic planning and production quality. This can inevitably lead to disappointment, which can be exacerbated if you distribute a video that reflects poorly on your brand.
The Importance of Planning When It Comes to Video Production
Before you spend a cent on creating a video, it’s best to spend some time doing strategic planning. The better video production companies offer video blueprint workshops. A well-done workshop will give you clarity about who your audience is, your goals, the type of content that needs to be created, how the video will be distributed, the most important production components to consider, and how to get a good return on investment. The worst thing someone can do is start haphazardly filming things without a strategic plan. Good video production studio companies have a clear plan in place to help you accomplish your objectives before they take out their cameras. The Moji Cinema video blueprint workshop is $495, and with this fee, you will be given a complete blueprint for your next video project, including storyboards and keywords to guide the project forward. If you choose to use Moji Cinema as your production company, that fee will be applied towards production costs.
