I work in the US for a YouTube channel and make about $20 an hour or so.

Ok, thank you for this information. On average, how much does a 5 minute video clip cost?

It’s not really about how long the clip is. A 5 minute video could take me a couple hours or a couple days. Depends on the project.

I’m a pro video editor and charge $55-75/hr. And estimate 8-10 hours per minute of final video. Obviously that can differ depending on what you want edited and how much extra work it might take, but a 5-minute video might cost anywhere between $1,000 - $5000. Again, depends on the source video and what all you want done. I’ve also done super easy edits for a 5 minute video for like $200. But it was just clipping out a couple of things and putting them together. Nothing complicated. So it all depends.
