How do startups create the demo videos on their homepage? Is there a low cost option for getting one created? Any other tips for demo videos to look out for?

  • Nice list, but kinda hard to navigate - how do you choose a company from a list like this? Also, $2-3K is pricey for an early stage startup and question was about low-cost options. – Webbie 10 years ago


If you can't afford someone from Gonzalo's list, but you have some creativity, try http://www.powtoon.com - which I've used to make a couple of explanimations in the past.

This is a great list, but your price estimate ($2K-$3K) assumes a low level of quality. As quality goes up, the list you've compiled gets a lot shorter (and more expensive). If you want smart, talented people from an established studio working on something that's original, truly elevates a brand, and is something people actually want to watch, then expect to pay at least $10K.
