Cost of commercial video production in India depends upon so many factors like camera you use, locations, transportation, models/actors post production work etc. But if we talk about the major factors then actors and camera are the ones. Below are the major factors that involved while deciding the budget for your commercial video.
Idea and Script
When we plan to make an interesting commercial video then first task we have to perform is to generate a good idea for the commercial. In all kinds of video production there is a post of the script writer and most of the times a script writer generates the idea until or unless you want to hire someone just to generate an idea only. Cost of script writing in India vary between INR 4000 to INR 10,000 (approximate) per page (A4 size), but few script writers work on the project basis, they will charge for the full script.
Shooting or production phase of any commercial video involves the maximum cost because there are so many things that can increase your budget like transportation, locations, equipment you use like camera, track and trolley, crane and jibs, lights etc. Cost for the camera with the operator may vary between INR 20,000 to 30,000 per day if you want to make a commercial video for national TV, but if you want to make commercial video for local TV or cable network then you can get full video including everything in INR 30,000. Transportation charges are decided in the real time but most of the production houses in India charge INR 20 to 30 per KM or a fixed amount.
The actors and models charge according to their demand in the market. New faces or freshers can work for you in INR 5000 to 10,000. But if you want big celebrities to work for your commercial then its obvious that you have to pay huge amount. These days TV actors are in a great demand for commercial video production in India. But they also charge more than your expectations.
As you know there are basic three phases pre-production, productions and post-production in all kinds of video production services in India. Video production companies in India charge 4000 to 6000 per hour for editing a commercial video, but in few cities like Chandigarh and Ludhiana video editors may get ready to edit your video in INR 2000 to 3000 per hour. Post production part of the commercial video may be expensive if you want to use some motion graphics or animation.
