Simple 2D Motion graphics
Straight forward motion design can be as simple as animated typography and simple graphics like this example.
Costs can range from approx £1750 per minute upwards, with the first minute sometimes being slightly more when all the assets are illustrated and created.
More complex 2D Motion graphics with 3D elements
An explainer video or corporate film with more complex design elements similar to the example
Costs could range from approx £2500 - 3500 per minute
Just one minute would be more expensive where all assets are created
2D Animated Explainer Videos with Character Animation
Most companies prefer to explain their product or service with an easy to understand animated video than text an images, as its so much easier for the audience to understand.
Depending on how many characters and the complexity these can start at around £4000 for a 1 - 2 minute video.
Look to budget for approx £3000 - £3500 per minute.
Again the first minute would be more expensive or if you only needed a 60 second animation.
Stylised 3D Animated Explainer Videos
3D animation tends to be more expensive as the workload is greater, from 3d modelling, texturing, lighting, dynamics and compositing, but there are different levels we can tweak to your budget. 3D doesnt have to be photo real and sometimes a different style is prefferd
Look to budget for approx £3500 - £5000 per minute.
High quality realistic 3D animation
For full 3D presentations the variables are even more. Used to explain a product or scenario for how to videos, corporate films. This is not including 3d character animation
It really depends on how much 3d modelling and animation there is. It could be a full environment or simple product demonstration
Budget for £3000 to £10,000 per minute
3D Character or Creature animation
Again this can vary depending on the level of detail required. We can work to a lower workload and budget for a mid range commercial for example, or put in all the nuances and subtle face animation or complex movement of a feature film
A mid range character project for say 1- 2 minutes could cost anything from £7000 up to £20,000. But for really high end and depending on if we need to create all the environments etc, you can be look at £200 - 300 per second.
I hope this helps give just some idea of how much animation costs, and how there are so many variables. We can try and work to your budget if its limited, just give us a call.
