How much should I pay for kickstarter video production?

Things to consider:

Time.  The more time that is spent in pre-production planning, scripting, location scouting, shooting, special effects and editing, the better the final product will be.

Talent.  The talent of the people working on the project is really important. When it comes to online video production, as with most things in life, talented and experienced people tend to cost more.

Tools.  You can produce a video with your cell phone.  Or you can use a high-end camera with a professional videographer and experience in post-production for crowdfunding. Sophosticated narrative development and story creation is also key.

A guidepost for budgeting your video production:

  1. For most other production companies, an agency quality storyline, filming, and three minute HD video for website or business project might end up costing between $10,000 – $15,000 upfront if you consider the corporate video clients they typically work with, as well as the variables between production companies.

  2. For StartMotionMedia, with our streamlined video production and campaign marketing process, we focus on helping inventors and startup project creators have access to professional video to succeed on their kickstarter and indiegogo-type crowdfunding intiatives. We have performance-based pricing designed for startup companies who need affordable rates. Because of this, we can offer you a chance to work with our agency at top-level of production quality for significantly lower cost.
