Videos are the way to go in marketing your business, with their easy to consume content, instant shareability, and lasting impressions on your viewer. You might have considered producing a video for your own business, but thought it wouldn’t be worth the trouble. Think again!
We analysed 25 local production houses for their services provided, and averaged out the costs. In this article, we will be going through how much making a video would typically cost in Singapore, as well as the services you can get based on your budget.
Services to consider:
1. Script & storyboard
Have no idea where to start in terms of the story and flow of your video? Then you’ll need help with creating the storyboard and script.
The price will vary depending on the complexity and length you want your video to be. A longer video length = more ideas needed with the script and story!
2. Film crew
Is it time to roll the cameras yet? The budget depends on whether you want to hire a basic videography team or a full crew (that includes a lighting technician, a sound guy, multiple cameramen, etc.).

3. Director and/or producer
If you’re not fully sure how to translate your creative vision on tape, then you might need a director and producer to take on the reins.
Their fees could increase depending on how long your video will take to shoot. Though not completely necessary, it could be a big help to getting your video to perfection.
Have you decided who will be in front of the camera? If you and your colleagues are camera shy, you’ll need to hire an actor instead.
5. Hair and makeup
You’ll also need to consider hiring someone to do hair and makeup. Just don’t get too ambitious with wardrobe changes and crazy looks!
Don’t forget location costs, which varies according to the venue itself.
Editing costs vary greatly according to the type of video you are looking to produce. Do you need basic editing or are you planning to make a more cinematic or documentary style video? Editing is hard work, so make sure to set aside a good amount of your budget for that.
Voiceovers and subtitles might be necessary too, and the cost will depend on the length of your video. Some voiceover artists will charge by the minute, so do keep that into account.
Background music is important too, and their rights need to be purchased before they can be used in your video.
Here’s a breakdown of the average pricing for each service we just mentioned:
Your video should range from $1500 – $5000, depending on your ideas and requirements of course.
