Are you trying to break into the music industry? In that case, having a music video to accompany your songs is vital. 

 

This is because the music video is the number 1 marketing tool for any artist/musician. However, if you are just starting out or if this is your first music video, then of course your burning question is going to be, “how much is this going to cost?”

 

How Much Does it Cost to Shoot a Music Video on Your Own? 

 

The truth is, it’s very hard to break down the costs for music video production because every music video production varies so much. However, just so you are aware of rough estimates and where your money will be allocated, we have done our best to provide this rough guide below. 

 

These figures are based on the Broadcast & Entertainment Union (BECTU).  

 

  • Actors: £350-500
  • Director: £600
  • Producer: £450
  • Cameraman: £500 
  • Motion Graphics: £600
  • VO Artist: £375
  • Production Assistant: £275
  • Editor: £700 
  • Studio Hire: £2000
  • Lighting and gaffer: £1000
  • Hair & Makeup: £300
  • Costumes: £500

 

Totalling, roughly £8,000 for the complete music video production. It’s important to keep in mind that the majority of these positions are held by freelancers. Which can make things more expensive as you are paying for more than just the person, you are also paying for their equipment and years of experience.
