Simple 2D explainer videos, ideal for conveying a straightforward message, start at around $6,000. Most projects fall between $15,000 and $25,000, which covers a wide range of styles and complexities. However, premium 3D animations with intricate details, advanced visual effects, and high-end production quality can range from $30,000 to $50,000.
