For organisational and online video production, a common cost is 3000/5000 music videos may range from 5000/15000

For documentary film-making at the lowest-budget level, ‘$1000 per finished minute’ is the cheapest starting point for cost. We recommend you should expect that even a ‘simple film’ may cost more. Why? There are many elements which come into play when calculating the cost a film. This figure only includes the production company, not actors or any other cost, only filming and production.

For example, if you want your film to be like a TV episode, you will want your film shot by a professional camera operator with professional equipment, including good lighting and sound. Even for low-budget documentary productions, a small professional crew and equipment will cost at least $2800 per day of filming. And you will want the film edited by an editor who knows what they are doing. Professional editors will charge $800 or more per day of editing.

However, if the quality level you need is not TV-level but something that will look good on the web, you may be able to get away with a micro crew with minimal equipment, costing only perhaps $1500 a day, and a small number of post-production editing hours. This way you may not get a professional look, but you can get a quality story.
