Book Trailers are by bid only. There is no set cost to them. The more you want; more actors, more sets, more locations, more special effects, the more the product will cost. But, if you only want one scene and one actor you could potentially get a trailer for relatively little money. You should be prepared to spend over $2000 even for a short and simple production. Production means casting, insurance, equipment rental, location rental and other costs you might not even be aware of.
For something more complex with lots of actors, period piece wardrobe, special effects, celebrity appearances or to film instead of digital or HD formats you could be spending over $5000 or even $10,000, again according to the complexity of what you want.
We can also script to budget. You can give us your budget and we can write a script that will meet that budget.
What are the benefits to this product?
These are the most exciting kind of video you can do. Reader surveys indicate that readers prefer the theatrical book trailers to any other book video product. Booksellers find them entertaining and have taken them as content more than any other product we create.
