Video: What Do Web Shows Cost?

May 21, 2008  •  Post A Comment

What does it really cost to produce a Web video series? $200 per minute or $2000? Or maybe $20,000? Daisy Whitney’s “New Media Minute” gives you the low-down.
The numbers may surprise you. This week’s “New Media Minute” breaks down a range of costs for Web series such as “Dorm Life,” “Sanctuary” and “Foreign Body” and compare those price tags to traditional TV.

DAISY WHITNEY’S NEW MEDIA MINUTE: VENTURE CAPITAL


This week’s “Minute” also looks at how fast venture capital money is flowing into the online video sector this year. Hint: in the first three months of this year, investment has already reached nearly half of the dollars from last year.
Finally, get a briefing on how kids’ games online can drive traffic for cable-network Web sites.

  1. This was a very informative piece. You rarely see the costs laid out so plainly and clearly. Thank you.

  2. damn, thats a lot of money…
    i put in about .08 – a dollar per video, depending on whether i eat ramen or a hot pocket..

  3. Very interesting. I would have been curious to see how much some of the ultra low-budget, yet very popular Vlogs are costing such as Mahalo Daily or DiggNation…I know my vlog is costing me roughly $150 a minute and this is just a hobby site (shameless plug: http://huntingwithjim.com)
