There are so many variables that can determine your initial investment
There are many schools of thought to producing and pitching a reality concept, we will go over a few of them. There are so many variables that can determine the cost for a reality show. There is not a basic rate or standard budget, there is no price sheet that can dictate the fee for reality show production. The best way to understand the cost would be to understand the need, what is needed by the networks. The cost to produce a reality show can range based upon the concept of the show. Let’s say you want to pay bare minimum, you want to film your reality show for 2 to 3 days. You want to put together what’s called a sizzle reel. A sizzle reel will not demand a lot of time in production, most of the time will be spent in post production. The cost to put together a 3-5 minute sizzle will run you about 15k, depending on a bunch of different variables. If this is a competition show, where there are multiple cameras, large crew, and weeks of filming, your budget could balloon upwards of 50 – 100k again depending on a few variables. The only way to determine the cost for your show would be to send out a non disclosure agreement, we will sigh it and send it back. at that point we are both free to discuss your idea without the fear of it being stolen. Once we fully understand your idea, and we are clear on your concept. We will estimate the cost for your show to be produced, and present you with a budget estimate. So in short a reality show production cost could range between 15k – 50k and up. Give us a call we can give you a better idea once we have a conversation with you.
