Explainer videos are part of branded video content and by design, these are short – no longer than 90 seconds generally. They answer FAQs the audiences need answers for, and are also known as ‘FAQ Videos’. The construct of their narrative is straightforward. And they address issues through a ‘why’ and ‘how’ approach. They also use characters or mascots to lend continuity across a series, or even employ a specific template designed for the purpose.

How much does an explainer video cost?

Contrary to popular belief, explainer videos are inexpensive to make. They are not like high-end animation that’s charged by the second.

So what are the likely damages? A good 2D explainer video of 90 seconds could cost anywhere between AED 20,000 and AED 35,000. Of course, the longer it is and the more intricate it is, the higher the price. And a digital agency with in-house teams of writers, designers and animators would cost you a whole lot lesser because all the talent is in house. We’re one such agency and would love to hear from you. We’ll also throw in a great price!
