Your video can easily become the topic of discussion over a coffee, something people might love talking about. You never when it may strike the ‘viral’ benchmark and gets customers pouring in. Since they involve real location, actors, equipments etc, they naturally cost more than other video counterparts. But, with a right production house working for you; great ROI is much expected.
