Most music videos cost somewhere between around $200-$300 – up to $700 in some cases, but this depends entirely on what features the actor/model is working with as well as how big the budget is. In many cases, an actor/model requires a large budget as well, but the budget per image varies greatly. This is why a $200-300-400 video is really not that much. The same can’t be said about music videos, however, as they are much higher level of productions. It is very much up to the videographer on what they can/can’t do, so the more advanced the project the higher the budget. It’s all about the vision and what makes you think it will make a great music video.
Do the actors and models have to do a lot of traveling? How many days or nights of shooting will the shoot entail?
Music videos are often filmed in small, intimate places that could easily be rented through online platforms such as YouTube etc. The typical shoot lasts for around 2-3 days depending on what type of image you shoot and the style of the video, and in some cases, it might involve a few weeks of filming. This varies greatly as well.
How many cameras do you want to use?

Do all the visuals have to be of the same scale? Do you have to be consistent to make a good video?
If what you need is to sell your product to someone or to promote it, then yes and no. Your visuals will be completely consistent, but
