Luckily, we already had the software needed for this project (or in my case, I was able to download Visual Studio 2010 from Dreamspark since I'm in college), but I was beginning to think of what it would have cost if we didn't.
Visual Studio 2010 Professional - $549
Auto Desk Maya-$3495
Those two together already cost more than my car did. Thank God for being a student.
Previous Total: $25
Add food ~$25
Totally cost so far. ~$50
Hypothetical Cost: $4100 + ~30 combined man hours.
