Medical Explainer Video Production Rates

Video production rates are largely based on expertise. A camera crew that is fresh out of film school will naturally charge less than a seasoned professional with decades of experience. Depending on the style of your medical explainer video, you can probably get away with a camera crew that has medium to high expertise in the field. Because medical explainer videos play a unique role in the health of the patient, we really don’t recommend going “cheap” or risking production that could deliver the wrong information or the wrong vision to the end-user.

Hourly video production rates vary based also on the location of the production crew. Camera crews in high demand areas will ask for higher hourly rates while those in areas of lower demand may offer better deals.

Most production crews will charge somewhere up the rates below:

  • Film Director – >$250 per hour
  • Script Writer – >$150 per hour
  • Cameraman – >$400 per hour
  • Editor – >$175 per hour
  • Actors – >$500 per hour
  • Equipment – up to 100s per hour
  • Studio Shooting – up to $400 per hour
  • Narrator – >$400 per hour
  • Audio Files – up to $1000
  • Video Rendering – up to $75 per hour
  • B-Roll – expect to pay a percentage between 10 and 50% of your total cost
  • Miscellaneous Fees – can cost very little up to 1000s extra

The average cost of medical explainer videos is as follows:

  • A low-priced, medical animated explainer video with basic elements – $6,000 per minute.
  • An average-priced, medical animated explainer with average elements – $7,500 per minute.
  • An advanced medical animation that uses 3D technology to explain – $10,000 per minute.
  • A stop motion animation that uses advanced computer graphics – $20,000 per minute.
  • A medical explainer video that does not include animations or expert talent – $2,000 per minute.
  • A medical explainer video that includes expert talent but excludes animations – $3,500 per minute

As you can see, each of the above styles of medical explainer videos will have varied estimated costs per finished minute.

  • Location
