Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Make sure that the company you hire has professional equipment and has demonstrated the ability to do the job well.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Video production is more than just running a camera. It involved writing skills for scripting; it involved lighting; it involves graphic design; it involves audio engineering. Does the person/firm you are considering have expertise in all these areas? A video with poor audio or lighting is a poor video, no matter what the camera and editing skills of the person doing the work.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Can they light the shoot for proper video capture?
Can they record, mix and process audio to get a great sounding video?
If they are shooting for a web-based video, are they shooting progressive video instead of interlaced?
