Given such a wide range of prices in the market place it’s perhaps better to simply decide what you or your company would be comfortable in paying and sticking to it. Set yourself what you consider to be a reasonable budget based on an upper and lower limit. Then get in touch with one or two video production companies and see what they can offer in that price range, and don’t feel embarrassed if you only have a thousand pounds or so to spend.
Remember, a video only has to be as complicated as you or the production company want to make it. Your video is about getting your message out there to the rest of the world and if budget is a major consideration then keep that message as simple as possible. You don’t need special effects, whizzing graphics and cameras that fly through buildings, you need a simple straightforward message that people will understand. Some of the greatest movies ever made never had so much as a zoom lens shot or a special effect. I don’t think the acronym KISS meaning Keep It Simple Stupid was specifically coined for the video industry but there are very few places where it is more applicable - especially when it comes to keeping down the costs.
