    Just wondering if anyone here makes lyric videos or has used someone that does.
    I've enquired with a pro level guy who quoted approx $500, but that involves having detailed artwork he can animated etc, which for this EP we don't have. We'd just like some animated lyrics, perhaps with some effect (that cliched floating embers perhaps :D).

    We don't want it for free, but if the guy that did videos for Aborted and Ingested wants $500, price yourselves accordingly :D

    If its any interest, the band is an Ancient Aliens themed, melodeath/modern thrash type, with some death metal influences & cheeky synths thrown in. Think "a bad version of The Black Dahlia Murder".

    Claim to fame - Our logo was designed by the guy who did Emperor's logo. God knows how we pulled that off!!!

    I think $300-500 is basically the going rate for a professional-looking lyric video, at least in my experience.

    What is your budget? I know a few animation people, and I can ask around, and direct them your way.

    To be honest preferably nearer the $300 mark as we have another EP in the works which we'd be splitting our video budget between this EP and the a video for the second, later this year.

    You can also talk to popular YouTube channels that do playlists like goregrinder etc they did up a cool album art vid for my band and I was surprised how much better it looked from our OG upload. I wish we had have sent in lyrics and at least had subtitles.


    Check this video what you pay for isn't always what you get and people are willing to create for fair wages.

    Be careful on Fiverr, man. About 90% of the stuff you'll get there is garbage. I have done my fair share of experiments there and, although I had one really great experience there, I encountered about two dozen least-possible-effort suppliers.

    Christophe has done logos for all of the Metal community, he's an amazing artist and deserves way more recognition for his work, which recently includes Rihanna and Metallica, as well as iconic bands such as Emperor and Dimmu Borgir.

    Check out his "Lord Of The Logos" documentary by Luke Hagan,

    Amazing! Will definitely check that out. Couldn’t believe how nice he was to deal with. This was probably 15 years ago. Amazing to be able to work with an artist Of his calibre.
