Character and Animation Rate Card

If you’re here it’s probably because you like what you’ve seen and now you’re wondering: How much does 3D animation, characters and all this Wow-Factor cost?


Well, there’s the “how long is a piece of string” response and although that answer is applicable, it’s not really helpful.


The first point I want to make is that you have to be convinced that the kind of Wow-Factor videos, illustrations and presentations you’ve seen on my website is going to make a difference to your marketing, sales and brand image and that I am the right person for your project.


This is not so much about costs as getting a return on your investment.

I don’t really want you to buy the rights to a character I develop for you. I love the characters I design and want to look after them for you. I want to help them work for you and become famous and make you a success. However, if you really want to own them outright I will sell them to you - that’s not slavery, is it? Anyway, I also have several other options available that gives you exclusive usage rights as well as budget options, such as the characters from my existing library of characters,

OK, estimating the cost of creating tricycles, sport cars and intergalactic rockets is a complex endeavour, so I’ve tried to simplify the matter somewhat. The two videos below will give you a rough idea of costs but please get in contact with me so that we can discuss your requirements and apply my vast amount of creativity and experience to find a perfect solution for your needs.

Examples of Basic Animation: £3000 - £5000

Examples of More Advanced Animation: £6000 - £12000+

Other things that affect costs are:

  • How many different scenes and characters will there be?

  • How long will the video be?

  • Environments – do we use a simple infinity drop, photos, video or 3D models and, if we use 3D models, how complex are they?

Now that you've got a rough idea of our prices, why not send me your requirements and roughly how much you'd like to invest in your project, and I'll come up with some suggestions.
