Live Action Video Spot

What is it?

Video. The kind shot with lights, cameras, actors, sets, and directors shouting, “Action!” These are the videos you see on broadcast TV—and, increasingly, the internet.

Who is it for?

First off, if you hate animation, then live action is probably the way to go. (But what did animation ever do to you?)

It’s also a good fit for those moments when seeing is believing. For example, if you have a product or service that people intuitively get from seeing it in action, then a Live Action Video is the answer. No need to complicate things with some clever technique. The camera misses nothing, and neither will your audience.

How Much Does it Cost?

It Depends

Are we shooting atop Mt. Rushmore? Do you want one helicopter shot or three? Is Morgan Freeman recording the voiceover? Should we get Dwayne Johnson’s agent on the line? (Please say yes.) You get the point. It’s complicated. We do our best to keep pricing as simple as possible, but when it comes to Live Action Videos, we just need to talk. Our Business Development team would be happy to help scope out your project.

The Variables

Some factors have bigger impacts on the price and budget than others. Those include: number of shoot locations, days of shooting, number of acting talent, size of crew, music licensing, and set construction.

Lots of Looks.

Decisions, Decisions.

One of the most important decisions to make when considering a live action project is the look you’re going for. Do you want something intense and emotive? Playful and bright? Highly polished? Run-and-gun? The possibilities are endless.

But not to worry. We’re here to help. If you already know what you want, we can move quickly to get production resources lined up. If you’re still wrestling with the decision, we can help you make the best choice based on your brand, story, objectives, and target audience. To see how we’ve done it before, check out our portfolio.

Some of the Details



Runtime sweet spot is usually 30 seconds to 3 minutes. It should be determined by considering level of complexity, your content, and audience. We’ll help guide you to the right decisions.



Our standard timeline is 6–8 weeks for a single video, but we can scale to accommodate rush timelines and multi-video per month engagements. Please note that the timeline also depends on your team’s availability. Let us know when you need your videos, and we’ll figure out the best process for you.



The cost takes into account many factors including production value, rounds of revision, total amount of video needed, and your timeline. Download our pricing and process guide for more info.
