Qualities to look for

Finding your ideal video production partner

#1 Skills

Make sure the video production staff has advanced production, technical, and creative skills. Ask them for examples of clients, projects they’ve worked on and where their expertise lay. With extensive knowledge they should be able to simplify complex assignments and quickly solve any last minute problems that may arise.

#2 Experience

Are you looking for a quick, inexpensive online video production company, or one that has worked with Fortune 500 companies?  Do you want to be highlight involved in the process or hands-off? Ask them if they’ve won any awards and for what, and how long they have been in business.  This may shed some light on whether or not they are dependable and experienced.

#3 Flexible and fun

If they have the skills and experience, the next quality you want is to work with a staff that is flexible and fun.  Look for a contact you can relate to and really listens to you.  If they are a pushy salesman, chances are, they look at your project as a revenue source and not an opportunity to help your company grow.

#4 Detail driven

You’ve heard, “the devil is in the details?” This is especially true when it comes to video production.  Make sure to work with a company that understands your goals, and can take care of everything from developing ideas, story boards, script writing, filming, editing, sound and more.

#5 Creative

Creativity comes in two forms: 1) artistic know-how, knowing how the elements of a shoot come together – visual composition, perspective, lighting and movement – it’s all crucial in creating the best story possible, and 2) creative problem solving.
