Video Production Prices

How much will your marketing video cost?  It all depends.

Most Outside Adventure Media video’s are a one-of-a-kind, custom productions. A two minutes video costs about $3,000.   

My production fees are primarily based on the time it takes to film and the final length of the video.

Calculating project costs:

Videography:  $1,000/day or $500/half day.

Editing:  $750 for the first minute.  $500 each additional minute / $250 each additional half minute.

Additional editing:  $500/day to update or change video after completion.

Extra’s: Music license from is $50 per song.  Licensing music from other sources TBD.

Additional third party production services TBD (aerial drone video, special equipment rental, etc).

Cost examples*:

1.  One minute video with one day of filming and one song: $1,800                Filming ($1,000) + 1:00 length ($750) + one song ($50)
