Animation Price – HOW MUCH DOES THE BEST CUSTOM 3D VIDEO COST?
Too often, the first question a customer asks AUSTIN VISUALS is, “How much does it cost to make a 2-minute 3D video?” My best answer is “let’s talk about your purpose, your product, the project, and the process – and let’s focus on your customers’ wants/needs.
But, you want the answers you came to this blog for – so let’s start with this: Austin Visuals high-quality animation costs between $2,000 and $6,000 a minute or more depending on:
- how many assets have to be built
- whether or not you have CAD files
- what you want to animate
- what the “background” environment is
- how complex the animation is
- whether or not you have a script or clear idea of what you want
- whether we will be localizing languages (e.g. Spanish, French, or any other)
- how much time do we have to produce the video (most 3D videos take 4-6 weeks
for a minute depending on the decision-making process at your end)
A better first question is: “can you help me create a 3D video that will sell my product/explain my idea/emphasize why what I have or do is better for people might buy or use it?”
WHY THE ‘CREATE’ QUESTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANIMATION PRICE
Creativity is more important place to start than price because any reputable studio can probably slam together a bunch of colorful pixels. Notice I said “reputable.” If you want to grab a freelancer, faff off to Fiver, or cross your fingers and hire folks 4 time zones away who don’t have English as their first language, you might be thinking only about price and not quality. But that’s your decision.
There’s no charge at all for a consultation on your project. Set aside time for us to talk to you to find out what you want, and what we can contribute to developing what we need. You can always reach us directly to set up a creative conference at [email protected] and look at our work for others at www.austinvisuals.com or our medical site www.3Dmedicalanimationcompany.com
The videos that deliver real ROI, are memorable to your customers, and grab those eyeballs at conventions or wallets of investors are compelling short stories. Often, it’s not what you want to tell them, it’s what our experience can help you communicate – which is what information they need to make a decision.
WHY IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO DEFINE YOUR BUDGET AND TELL US WHAT IT IS
If you have a set budget, the best thing you can do is to tell us how much you have to invest in the video. Why? Because we’ll be able to help you use that budget to the best of your advantage. Austin Visuals 3D Animation Company has been creating custom 3D videos (explainer videos, investor videos, product introduction videos, medical/surgical videos, scientific videos, legal and forensic videos, construction videos, energy and conservation videos and more) for nearly 12 years. So, we’ve learned a thing or three along the way about how to maximize even the most restrictive budget. We’ll never keep you guessing – so, since we’re going to be partners in creating your 3D video solution, please don’t make us guess. iT’S NOT OUR JOB TO SPEND THE MOST OF YOUR MONEY, IT’S OUR JOB TO MAKE YOU THE BEST VIDEO FOR YOUR INVESTMENT OF ANY AMOUNT.
CAN AUSTIN VISUALS CREATE A VIDEO “LIKE THIS ONE?”
Animation Price – While looking at one of your competitor’s videos is helpful to Austin Visuals and our US-based expert artists, from the standpoint of pricing the best custom video solution, we’ll want to work with you to determine how YOUR 3D video tells (or sells) YOUR story with your branding and your product differences.
Part of our creative process of our 3D animation company is helping you identify then visualize these critical elements. We call this selling your story or “storyselling”.
- what makes your product or service better than what your customer is using now
- what makes your product or service better than a specific competitor
- why the customer should trust you
So, if you’ve seen something you like by all means show us – but expect that we’re going to do everything we can to make YOUR custom 3D solution BETTER than what you showed us as a guide!
OR “YOU DON’T HAVE A SAMPLE VIDEO EXACTLY LIKE I WANT – CAN YOU DO IT?”
Animation Price – Each of our custom 3D solutions for our customers is CUSTOM. UNIQUE. So no, you might not see exactly what you want…but that’s a good thing. It’s also true that more than half of the videos we’ve produced over the years are under NDA (non-disclosure agreements). We can’t show them to you because they have some proprietary elements, and our customers have asked us to keep them private.
We’ve never met a molecule, MOA, bird’s eye video of something, undersea element, exploded view of a machine or “thing” that is as yet only an idea – no medical treatment or pharmaceutical process or building that we couldn’t put into the best 3D video.
Oh, and we’re darn good at 2D, Motion Graphics, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Live Video, Drone work, and Marketing Consulting.
