What is a commercial?

A commercial is a short, concise film 15-45 seconds long that has at least one of three goals for you: to increase your sales, raise your profile, or reinforce your image.

To attract and hold interest, the plot of the commercial video usually follows a three-step approach: an unusual situation attracts attention – a surprising twist resolves it – a call-to-action prompts action.

We have answers to your commercial.
How much does a professional commercial cost?

The cost of your commercial always depends on the concept. The key factors are the duration of the film, whether and how many actors are used, the purpose (TV advertising vs. social media promotion), realization as a live-action film or motion design, and the scope of post-production. From approx. CHF 5'000.- the budget is open upwards.

How long does it take to produce a commercial?

From approx. 4 weeks turnaround time is realistic for the production of a promotional video. The more elaborate the shoot (the organization of premises, props and permits, casting, etc. influence the planning effort) and the more extensive the subsequent editing, the more time must be budgeted.

Why should I have a commercial created by an agency?
