Hi,

I am looking for videographer, script writes and director to help creat an awesome crowdfunding video. Any recommendations would be helpful. 

Also please let me know what is the average cost of getting a good video made. 

Thanks
A great idea is 1% of the work. Execution is the other 99%. In this course, we’ll teach you how to conduct market analysis, create an MVP and pivot (if needed), launch your business, survey customers, iterate your product/service based on feedback, and gain traction quickly.

$20K is 4x the *high end *of what this costs. I've never heard of anyone paying more than $5K for a 2 min video. Animation costs more, but since it doesn't require local filming, it can be done offshore. We have a high-quality animated video that only cost $3K and was animated by a shop in Malaysia. -- CEO / Co-Founder www.PayByGroup.com

I know a guy here in Vancouver. He is a project manager for explainer videos (he collects all the script writers, designers soundFX guys  etc and puts them to work)

He did a great job on my video for Academic Wilds and for a really nice price by keeping the costs low.

You can reach him here

Oh, and I payed $5K for a 1.5 min video. Most of the money went for using an hotel room (I needed it for the video) and equipment.

I've recently watched a couple of friends suffer through failed crowdfunding campaigns so before I launch the next phase of my skincare company on Indiegogo, I've been trying to get a good understanding of what works and doesn't. 

When it comes to videos, sometimes polished ones don't work, but you obviously don't want to look bad. 

I've started looking at campaigns I like and tracking down the videographer behind it. That's how I came across Harry Hyuan

More generally, these articles are interesting, too:

I hired my friend Ryan Kushner for my crowdfunding video (found here) and he brought in a camera guy (who worked on The Story of Stuff series of videos), helped me find a sketch animator (Mariah Howard), and did all the post production. I wrote the script, though sought advice from a guy named Andy Goodman who's a storytelling professional. Highly recommend Ryan as your first point of contact. The entire project cost me about $5K, which is fairly standard (for a high-quality video) based on my research. The sketch animator gave us a discount since we're a social enterprise and she's passionate about that space. They all live in the Bay Area and we shot at a studio in SF that had a green screen (and was super cheap - I think $75 for the day). Here's Ryan's info: http://intelligent-design.me Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
