The price of CGI animation depends on what you have to do to get it. If you are trying to get something done privately, it would be horribly
expensive. But advertising agencies are doing what they have always done, that being hiring people straight out of school to do the work. There are
many programs teaching CGI animation and many students taking it. When they come out they need a job to pay off their student loans, so they take
what they can get. This allows the ad agencies to get the newest and best technology and knowledge for rock bottom prices. So the cost to them is a
computer, the proper programs and wages. With the price of known actors being so high, I expect that you will see more CGI commercials in the future.
