What You Should Ask Your Video Production Company27 Apr

There are so many questions to ask before hiring a video production company and during the production process. As a manager or proprietor of a business, it is important that you ask questions to make sure that the company you will hire are the best ones to do the job. You are paying for their service so it is just fair to get what is your money’s worth.

What to Ask Your Video Production Company:

When scouting for a video production company, ask how many years they have been in the industry. The longer they have been around, the more experience they have. When they have been around for more than five years, you’ve got an idea that they are pretty stable.

Also, ask who their past clients were and how were their experiences with them.  Their relationship with their past clients will give you an idea of how they work. You can check the finished videos for their former clients to know the quality and marketing impact. Learn something about their fields of expertise.

Ask questions like what is their education has to do with media, marketing, and video production? What do they specialize in? Maybe they don’t have much experience with the type of the video that you like. If you want your video to have animation but their lead animator is on vacation, you better think twice about hiring them.

Once You’ve Hired Them, There’s More Questions to Come:

Provided you picked the right video production company to do the job, you want them to make a video that you like. During pre-production, there are so many things you need to ask. The first consideration is how long should the video be. Do you want it to be more than one minute, two minutes or under thirty seconds? Discuss if the length of the video is doable with the budget that you have and the amount of time that they need to spend doing it. Utah video production is up to par with Hollywoods production companies, so don’t be wary if you’re not located in California.

Next question is who will make the script? If it is you or someone from your company, there will be an advantage because nobody knows your company better than you or your staff. However, if they will make the script, be sure to sit down with the scriptwriter so that you can incorporate the personality and mission of your company. What props do they need for the video? Do they also need actors? Are the actors and props a part of their expenses or it will be yours to shoulder? Questions like these are important so that you and the production company will be on the same page when making the video and during the post-production process.
