Hey guys.

From some time I have been interested in animated music videoclips. I’m an electronic-music artist looking for videos for some of my songs, with many ideas in mind but also with a very low budget for making them happen :)

I was looking here and there for stock animations (conceptual, 2-3 minutes long), but I won’t be able to find what I’m looking for.

Let me give you few examples:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT6XCvDUUsU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve6Rd0G4TK0

Is there (over the internet) any place I could buy that kind of stock video (again – complete animations with story). And if there’s not – approximately how much money I’ll need to budget creation of each of these three different movies?

I hope my questions don’t sound stupid :) I’m an absolute newbie when it comes to video.

Thanks in advance

You won’t find these kind of videos here unfortunately… About the cost… making a custom animation like this would cost a lot, depending on the team that would work on it, from $5k to over $10k and more :D

Serious music video budgets tend to start around $20K. For medium sized acts $40K-$50K is usual these days. I’d say something of that quality and duration would be doable around that mark for a small, dedicated team.

Music video is a labour of love these days tbh.
