Some Examples with Pricing
to Give You a General
Overview

This promo video employs text animation, custom background, custom music background, animated avatar, and text to speech voiceover. It is 36 seconds long and the cost would be the basic $3.50/second or a total of $126.00.

Videos similar to this one can be produced with a wide variety of male or female avatars, a wide variety of voices, any video background, even one you provide yourself, any music or sound effects background, and an endless variety of animated texts.

Keep in mind that the price per second covers original conference to brainstorm ideas with you, story board for your approval, production of the rough draft, editing and conference for final edit approval, then rendering, delivery and final approval.

You can easily spend $600 to $1,000 to have this done by other agencies, and it may come to that with us eventually. However, for now we want to build a select group of satisfied clients.

If you would rather tackle this by yourself, we offer several viable options here for your consideration. If you want to toss ideas around, give me a call at (941)286-0504.
