TV Advert Production

Get in touch

Our teams can create high-quality TV adverts to showcase your product, service or company to millions of people through the power of television advertising. 

Advertising on television is one of the most expensive forms of advertising on the market today, that is, however, because it is so effective with its ability to hit a wide range of people in a controlled way.

That said, a TV advertising campaign will only work if the advert itself is professional, high-quality and is able to "sit" nicely with other top TV adverts out there being broadcast. 

Our experienced teams at PromoMedia are able to create effective TV ads for a wide range of industries and in different styles, to suit various budgets. If you'd like more information on our TV commercial production or TV ads in general, contact us today.

What is TV Commercial Production?

TV commercial production is the process of creating a TV advert to be broadcast on commercial television stations.

There are various different types of TV adverts which you can employ - some use actors to tell a story, some animation, some are graphical. In many ways, whatever you are promoting will dictate the approach that is right for you, your target market and your product. 

TV advertising is a hugely successful form of marketing but one that is totally dependent on the actual TV commercial. If the advert you create to showcase your product looks cheap or gives off the wrong impression, it can have a negative effect on your brand perception with the general public. 

On the other hand, a great TV commercial has the power to generate huge revenue and some are iconic are famous in themselves; think of Guinness, John Lewis and Coco-Cola. All their brands have recognisable and re-callable TV ad that is known nationally and even internationally. 

TV Advert Production Costs

The cost to carry out TV commercial production varies depending on a number of different factors. These are mainly: 

  • Length of the advert - most adverts are 30 seconds in length. You can have a shorter 10 and 20-second version and even longer one, but the most common is 30 seconds. 

  • Actors/Presenters - having people in an advert pushes the price up, especially if you are looking to have a well-known celebrity or "face" in it. That said, celebrity endorsement and connection to a product can help elevate it in the eyes of the public. 

  • Animation - do you want any special animation? An advert can be wholly animated or you may want to have a start or end frame animated to add some more sparkle. 

  • On-location - if you are looking to shoot a TV advert you may need to film on location, the hiring of such locations can be expensive, especially if you are looking for iconic landmarks. Before TV commercial production takes place the relevant permissions will need to be sought from local councils, you can't just turn up somewhere and start filming. 

  • Studio - if you aren't filming on a location you will most likely be shooting in a studio. This is a common set up for TV ads as the environment - lights and sounds etc - can be more easily controlled. 

  • The complexity of the shoot - how many cameras do you need? Size of the crew? All these will add to the costs. 

  • Turn around time - how quickly do you need your TV commercial making? A quicker turn around time can be more expensive, so it is better to plan some months ahead.
