Where to obtain product explainer/teaser videos?

Where would I go about getting a explainer video/teaser video made on a bootstrap budget?
I would prefer live-action videos. But,I know companies charge 500-20,000.
I am also considering animation videos. (My budget is $50-$200)
Thanks.

You're going to have a hard time getting someone to do one professionally for that budget.

However, doing it yourself, using Jing to record your screen, and iMovie to stitch it together could get you to a passable product.

Do you have a PowerPoint deck with relevant visuals for the conceptual pieces?

I would try scripting it yourself, and then recording you talking over the relevant, static slides, and interleaved product screen captures.

Cut it together with iMovie or similar (you're going to have to learn to do this for product demo videos anyway), and use the stock music that comes with those video editing suites.

It won't be the same as an epipheo video, but if you're pre-product market fit, it's probably premature to invest in something with a crazy amount of fit and finish.

Hey Koral, GoAnimate is awesome, inexpensive, and easy to produce something of reasonable quality in a week or less. I just made a :30 explainer video and my first draft was done in a day or two. You can probably get one done even more quickly if you use one of those tools to generate one that's just all animated words. Total price for my video was $80 (1 month of GoAnimate pro) and a few days of my time. Hope that helps. -Michael

The product is not even developed yet thus I have not obtained any images. But,I obtained some paid pre-orders. I would like make a low cost video since there is no point on wasting thouadns of dollars for not a fully launched product yet.
IS Whiteboard animation & Go-animate the only viable option?
Would you recommend gathering students from universitys to make movies?
I understand everything is always about the money. But any CREATIVE recommendations for a startup trying to obtain a great video. I know it can be done within that budget,any tips?
Thanks

You can also check out Powtoon, its more on the cartoony side though but really easy to use and can get your point across for a great price. there are also great animators on Fiverr.com that can do it for you.

Take a look at Sparkol, it's relatively simple and at a good price point.

You might ask film students at a university to help.

When my teammates and I created our teaser video, I used Keynote to build the animation with our static designs, timed animations, and timed or clickable transitions. Then, I used a screen recorder to create the video and recorded a voiceover track for the audio.

I put the two together and got our longdemo, which I later edited to create ashortversion as well.

If it can be done remotely then try these guys: http://www.kgpromos.com

They're a new video production company and insist on making videos well beneath market price in order to build a portfolio. They do great work.
