How Long Does It Take To Make a Video? (Ep. 114)

by TODD HARTLEY, on Aug 24, 2017 1:49:00 AM


If you want to get married, you can run down to the courthouse and tie the knot with your lover in an hour.

OR you can spend 6 months pre-planning the perfect destination wedding in your favorite tropical paradise.

The point being, not all weddings are created equal.

The same goes for creating a professionally produced video — some are more complex than others and require significantly more time and attention.

In some cases, your video might require multiple interviews, with different people, in different locations. Other videos may call for animation, b-roll and professional voice over.

Some video shoots can be finished in a day, but others need three or more days.

So how do you know what the right timeline is for your video?

The WireBuzz team creates over 1,000 videos a year, so we’ve learned a thing or two about how to make the right video the first time.

When you budget enough time for each stage of the video creation process (pre-production, production, and post-production), then you’ll come away with a video asset that is less expensive and something that your organization can be proud of.

So if you want a clear understanding of how long it will take to make a video, then hit that play button.
