Additional Brand Identity Video Production Cost Considerations
In addition to hiring the crew, you have several other considerations that influence the cost of your brand identity video. Things like travel expenses incurred for shoots on location and the appropriate film permits will come up in some cases. Equipment is another major expense that can arise in producing a brand identity video concept. Keep in mind that your camera crew will have some equipment but there are chances that equipment rental fees will also come into play. Try to keep equipment rentals short so that costs will remain low.
Larger productions may require the rental of additional lighting, cameras, grips, or associated film gear. Consider the various options for day rates, weekly rates, or related flexible equipment rentals if you’re considering a multi-day shoot. Post-production expenses such as the use of graphics, coloring, grading, or other expenses may also arise in creating your brand identity film. Keep motion graphics, titles, and the use of add-ons that delay editing limited if you’re trying to keep costs low.
