December 29, 2016

Video production is an art that requires great skills and experience. If you are planning to have a wedding video to be produced for your once in a lifetime wedding event for keepsake purposes or even for your company’s corporate video, you should not make the mistake of choosing the wrong company for it. Working with a good video production company is the best option you have in order to get the quality of video that you need. Not all video production companies can offer you high quality videos that you need. This is why it is vital that you take time to ensure that you get the best company suited to your needs. The number of companies providing videography services has risen. To make things easier for those looking to engage a company for videography services, here is a guide to picking the best video production company in Singapore.

Do your research

One of the things to consider is the number of years that a company has been in the industry. Working with a company with more than three years of experience guarantees you high quality video. It is also good to note that the more years of experience a certain video production has in the industry, the better they are in terms of the video they produced. To verify, you can check when the company was licensed by the relevant government institutions online.

Check testimonials of previous clients

Not all the experienced video production companies in Singapore have a good name among the clients. This is why it is very important to consider the reputation that a certain company has before you can hire it to provide you the video production. The best way to understand how reputable a certain video production company is by reading online reviews. You can go online to check the reviews given by their past clients. It is advisable that you go for a company with the highest positive reviews from their past clients. Needless to say, any testimonials left by the previous clients of the videography company should be positive. It is important to find any testimonials, as those will usually include the customer’s experience with the company. A negative experience may then serve as a warning to you that the videography company is not the ideal choice for your business. Certain issues that previous clients have with the videography company may be mentioned in the testimonials, making it easier for you to see if the company will be a good fit with your company.

This is a great way to get a company that will produce high quality videos for you because you get information from people who have had direct experience working with them.

Look at their portfolio

To ensure you get what you want, be sure to check on the video production company’s portfolio. The best way to get to know their work is via their website for their past works. It is advisable that you go for a company with the video produced that you like. By viewing the work of the least expensive and the most expensive video production company in your area you will be able to get an idea of what kind of work is delivered at those prices.

Cost of video production

No matter what your budget, you will be able to find someone to create videos for you. If your finances are really tight, there is nothing wrong with hiring a student who does production on the side, or someone who is really new and just trying to build up his portfolio. Just know that the production quality won’t be the same as if you hire a professional team as they might not have the right equipment or might not have the experience to produce high quality video for you. On the flip side, if you have a bigger budget, use it.  Video production companies that command higher rates do so because they’re confident in their product. They have the skills & experience to make your video great.

Remember, doing some legwork up front is the best way to ensure the end product is what you had envisioned. You really do get what you pay for.

Engage with the sales representative to check response time

The worst thing that can happen is to be unresponsive contact person during the planning period. By engaging them and evaluating them based on the response time is a good way to save you from a headache in the long run. Generally, response time under 12 hours is acceptable & under 1 hour is best.

Meet up with the videographer

After evaluating the above and shortlisting 1 – 2 companies, the last thing would be to meet up with the videographer that would be filming your event for you. The videographer should be someone whom you can get along with in general. During the meeting, be sure to ask any questions that you may have and ensure that all concerns are raised and solved.
