Handcrafted Animated Loops, Animated Lyric Video & Animated Music Video Estimates Ranges

Animated Music Video and Lyric Video Estimated Price Ranges

All my music videos are handcrafted and 100% custom made. A full animated music video completely dominates my schedule for a couple of months. My costs depend quite heavily on the amount of detail, the complexity, the length and time timeframe of the video I’m making. To give you an idea of how this might translate into different projects here are some rough ranges of prices:

Album/Single Artwork (Digital Only)
3-5 day’s work
£1,075 – £1,500 ($1,450 – $2,000).

Looping Animation / Music Promo
10-20 seconds
5-15 day’s work
£1,500 – £4,000 ($2,000 – $5,400).
From simpler, to more complicated, to very complicated.

Full Animated Lyric Video
2-6 mins
5-10 week’s work
£5,000 – £10,000+ ($6,750 – $13,500+).
From simpler, to more complicated, to very complicated.

Full Animated Music Video
2-6 mins
7-10 week’s work
£5,000 – £12,000+ ($6,750 – $16,000+).

Animated Music Video Artist Testimonial Quote

We can discuss the best options based on your song, budget and preference. A full animated music video, animated lyric video, or a looping animation.

What if you don’t have £5,000 (or more) for a quality 2D animated music video developed from scratch?

(With a smaller budget, a seamless looping animation can be a great option. It can be used as a teaser for a new song, EP or album on social media including Instagram. It can also be used as a looping animated illustration on YouTube for the duration of the song.) We can also offer to make individual scenes, or a single illustration, you get the point.


The most recent animated (lyric) music video ‘Fall Back Down‘ was for the artist SOFI K. I directed and created the animated video myself, based on a written synopsis from the client. This video works both as a full animated music video and a full animated lyric video. This video has a full linear story and show many shots and backgrounds.

“Anders is an amazing artist and animator! I had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a song I produced for Sofi K called “Fall Back Down.” The level of hard work and detail that he put into our music video was unbelievable. He is communicative and gives you detailed descriptions and options of ways to make something work. We sent him examples of some of the imagery, tone, and feel that we were looking for in our animation and he was able to masterfully incorporate these things in. We were blown away by his talent and the way our video came out. I think Anders is doing great things in the world of animation and will continue to impress the people he collaborates with. I’m hoping to work with him again in the future.”
