How Much Does an Animated Explainer Video Cost? Unravelling the Price Factors for Businesses.


Animated Explainer Videos are an engaging way to convey complex ideas and capture the attention of audiences. However, one question that often arises is, “How much does an animated explainer video cost?”

In this blog post, we’ll delve into the various factors that influence the cost of creating an animated explainer video, and yes, we give our guide pricing to give you an idea of the costs involved.


1. Length and Complexity of the Video:

The most significant factor influencing the cost of an animated explainer video is its length and complexity. The longer the video, the more time and effort required to create it. Similarly, a complex video with intricate animations, special effects, or detailed graphics will demand more resources and, subsequently, higher costs. A standard explainer video that ranges from 60 to 90 seconds is commonly preferred due to its optimal balance of information and viewer engagement.


2. Style and Quality:

Another crucial aspect that impacts the cost is the chosen animation style and overall quality. Different styles, such as 2D, 3D, whiteboard, motion graphics, or stop-motion, require varying levels of expertise and effort. Each style has its unique appeal, and the cost will differ accordingly. High-quality animation with attention to detail will naturally incur higher expenses, but it also ensures a professional and impressive end product.


3. Script and Voiceover:

A well-crafted script is the backbone of any animated explainer video. A clear and concise script helps convey the message effectively and keeps the audience hooked. We work with our clients to produce the script they want. This is included in the overall price.

We also generally include the cost of voice-over from an experienced voice-over artist.


4. Licensing and Music:

To enhance the video’s impact, background music and sound effects are often incorporated. Proper licensing for music usage must be obtained, as using copyrighted material without permission can lead to legal issues. This cost is included in our pricing.
