Hiring the Right Video Production Team

Every company needs good video work for marketing in this digital age. Trying to find the right team for the job can be a little tricky sometimes, as it can be a pretty big investment for your business. If it’s your first time looking for a video production team you may not know what to expect. In this article I will share some thoughts on finding the right team for your project.

Look Through Multiple Portfolios

When searching for a team you want to make sure that the work they are doing will match the expectations of your project. If the quality of work in their portfolio doesn’t excite you then you should consider looking elsewhere. Most production teams will have a variety of projects but the ones who really excel in their work have mastered a specific type of video. You need to find a team who has completed multiple projects of similar type of video you are looking for. Let’s say you are looking for a 30 second food commercial, if the portfolio is mostly wedding films and interviews then you probably need to find a new team. Even if you think you found a portfolio that looks like it will meet your needs, keep looking for other options.


The budget for your project can have a huge impact on who you work with and the quality of work you will receive. If you have a budget of about 1k-3k you shouldn’t be looking at massive media companies in your area, instead try and find a freelance or small team. A lot of large media companies can cost anywhere from 5k-50k depending on what is needed for the project. After you narrow down your portfolios, start reaching out to the companies you like and request a quote for your project.


Personality can impact the chemistry of the production and final video. You may not be able to tell right away if they have the right personality if this is your first project with them. Make sure you schedule a couple of calls about the project so you can get a feel for who they really are. If the calls sound really monotone or unmotivated, when it comes time for the actual production you may be a little less motivated as well and If you are on camera that could really affect the outcome of the video. If they are super excited and happy to be on set with you then the production will flow smoothly which will in turn influence your presence on camera resulting in a stellar end product.


When you are looking for the right video production team for your project you want to focus on looking through multiple portfolios, budget, and their personality. All 3 of these factors will help you narrow down who you is going to be the best fit for you and will have a major impact on the final product. Keep in mind that if you can’t find anyone in your area you can find a team elsewhere but keep in mind that costs may rise.
