Top Five Things To Look For In A Video Production Company
When it comes to content, an increasing number of companies have been investing in video production as a marketing strategy. Often, most companies don’t have the knowledge or time to produce a video in-house. A video production company will have the experience, access to skilled professionals, and high-quality equipment to create engaging video content. During a time where we have such a high demand for video content, you have a lot of companies out there making big promises. To narrow down this wide pool of potential candidates, here’s a list of top five things to look for in a video production company.
1. How experienced are they?
The first thing to look for is experience. How long have they been in the business? How experienced is their staff? You want a production company with an established reputation as it will contribute to the quality and eventual success of your video. If they have successfully worked on projects similar to yours, you can be sure that they will have the knowledge and skill necessary to give your company a high-quality video.
2. Who have they worked with?
Find out who their clients are. A video production company with great standards will also provide great content. We try to make sure our clients understand that we have worked with and continue to work with most of the major news networks and national cable channels. We have had success helping them - let us show you how we can help you.
3. Does the quality of the work match your expectations?
Check their demo reel. It showcases some of the past projects they have worked on and demonstrates what talents or skills they will bring to your project. You will be able to gain an understanding of whether their production style will be compatible with your company and if your expectations will be met.
4. Do they normally service your geographic area?
It is best to find out if a video production company works in your area in advance so you can account for them being present at a fixed time. Crewsouth is based in Birmingham, AL. We serve many clients in Birmingham, but we also serve clients around the southeast. Many producers in the northeast markets call us and don’t realize how centrally located Birmingham is to the rest of the southeast. We also regularly work in Atlanta, Nashville, Jackson, MS, New Orleans, and the northern gulf coast.
5. What gear and equipment do they use?
Are they running around with DSLRs and Go pros, or do they have some serious professional equipment packages to offer? Technology in electronics and production are ever-changing. Impressive images can be captured by a simple iPhone; however, we strongly believe it takes professional gear and skilled professionals to achieve the best results. They have access to equipment such as professional cameras, tripods, camera stands, lights, etc., all of which are necessary for when making a video of a certain standard.
