1. Meet a specialist
Different companies come in a multitude of diverse forms. In most cases, they are specialists in a certain type of video or sector e.g Corporate Video production. Generally, the more experience a video production company has in your market, the less complicated it is for you to communicate your targets to them. A professional company will be well-placed to produce a video for your target audience. In most cases, taking the time to look for a specialist company is time well spent.
2. Obtain Samples & References
A track record counts for a lot. Companies with a great portfolio and client list are generally a safer bet. The more pleased clients a company has, the better. Insist that the production company shows you the latest 3-5 productions they've completed within the quoted budget, before calling those clients to see what they think of your video production company and their new video.
3. Write A Production Brief
A production brief is just an outline of what you want in terms of a video; a list of guidelines for a video producer to work from. An extensive summary, about a page in length, is often more than enough to begin. Without this brief, companies will find it hard to provide you with an exact quote.
