The cost of a professional video production starts from $4900 to upwards of $10,000. It depends on the pre-production work required, as well as resources needed to pull off your video production.
After a video production project is confirmed, our team start on the preparation work. The scope of work depends on your requirements. For small scale production, some of the following scopes are not necessary. Other times, it could be more cost-effective for you to work on certain scopes internally.
For instance, if you only need a speech filming, only basic schedule planning is needed and in those cases you will not require any pre-production services from us.
Common scope of work for video production:
- Conceptualisation of video
- Development of storyboard
- Location scouting & applying for permit
Video Filming & Production
When it comes to the big day of your video production, there will be a host of logistics and crew coordination. This ranges from a 3-man team for a simple interview and speech filming, or a team of about 8 crew members for short story.
The cost will vary depending on the equipment and crew needed. When we are planning for your production, we always keep cost-effectiveness in mind. Sometimes having a couple more crew might increase the budget a little. But having a smoother workflow on filming date might result in cost savings in other areas.
Common video production roles:
- Camera operator
- Grip & gaffer
Common video production equipment
- Video cameras
- Microphone & audio recorder
- Electrical cabling
If you are filming at an outdoor location without power, our team may have to cater ample battery for lighting equipment, this could increase the cost slightly.
Our video editor will take anything from 2 to 10 working days for the first draft of your video. A longer timeline is needed when you require special effects, or advanced motion graphics.
How Much Does a Corporate Video Cost?
While there are many types of corporate videos, you can expect a typical corporate video production to cost between $4900 and $10,000. The standard cost includes camera, lighting, audio equipment and crew. Video post-production with standard graphics is usually included as well. And the variable costs are teleprompter, slides recording, green screen studio rental, multiple location filming, talents and conceptualisation.
How Much Does a Creative Video Production Cost?
Some production requires more creative planning and pre-production works, such as a narrative video production. In this case, the video production is expected to cost between $8,000 to $25,000. The scope should cover conceptualisation and storyboarding, talent, location & props sourcing, filming production, crew, director, producer, transportation, meals and post-production.

The video is an example of how we can make an university corporate video meaningful. By casting real alumni, the video was able to tell the story of the university in a way that was authentic and relatable. This made the video more engaging and memorable for viewers, and it helped to build trust and credibility for the university.
