Choosing a video production company is like choosing a doctor or a dentist. You have to make sure they are technically proficient, and they have to make you comfortable as human beings because they are going to be in your mouth or touching your body.
Yes! Ok ok, need is a strong word, but I am going to stand by my answer: YES! You definitely, positively, absolutely NEED a video on your website. Whether you are a mom & pop shop, an international corporate giant, or a charitable non-profit -- if you don't have video on your website you're missing out!
Imagine if you could eat a single meal made up of dishes served by over 30 restaurants from one of America's top foodie destinations. Well, you can and we DID... after we were done shooting video of the event of course.
My first paid job as a producer was for a wedding. I was paid $300 in exchange for a 40-minute video. At the time of this blog, a Google search reveals that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides officially holds the record with a budget of 378.5 million, which if you do the math comes out to $2,762,773.72 per finished minute.
