Choosing a Video Production Company

February 13, 2017



In order to find the best corporate video or educational video production companies in Oklahoma City and beyond, you first need to be able to ask the right questions and know what to look for in a video production company. 

How to find the best video production companies in Oklahoma City

The right video production company can mean exponentially more audience engagement, attention and success for your business, while the wrong one, or using none at all, can result in an unprofessional-looking product that casts your company in a bad light.

Knowing how to find a good video production company is extremely important. Here’s a quick guide to show you how to choose a good video production company for your corporate or educational video needs.

Look at Their Work

The best indicator of what a company will do for you is what it has done before. A good video production company should proudly display examples of its work on its website, (social media, vimeo, etc) and may be able to point to other places online where its work can be viewed as well. Watch the videos that have been created by the company in question. Look not only at the production cost, but also if the videos seem to have the kind of look, feel and sensibility you are seeking in your own corporate videos.

Price shouldn’t be the only factor when deciding how to choose a video production company, but it certainly is a key one. You may end up going with a company that costs a little more but whose approach you think is better for your company, but it’s still good to get a sense at how much different video production companies charge for their services for comparison purposes.

Know What You Need

Do you already have a script, storyboards and actors and mostly just need a space, a crew, and maybe some special effects? Do you have everything but just need help with the editing of your video? Are you starting completely from scratch? While a good video production company should be able to help you with just about every part of the process, it’s a good idea to know what you need going in to help the company explain how it can best help you achieve your goals.

Questions to Ask a Video Production Company

When you approach a video production company, here are a few questions you should consider asking to help you make your decision:

  • How long have you been in business?

  • About how many educational or corporate videos have you produced?
  • What video in your portfolio are you most proud of and why?
  • Have you worked with a company like ours before and how did that go?
  • When can you start and how long do you expect the project to take?
  • How much do you expect the project to cost?
  • What are the credentials of your experts, such as screenwriters, storyboarders, camera operators, etc.? What experience do they have in the areas where we need help?
  • What are the charges for updating or editing the video after the project is complete?

While this is not an exhaustive list, a video production company that has ready and acceptable answers to these questions is likely to be a good match for you.
