TIPS TO FIND THE RIGHT COMPANY FOR YOU:
What work have they done and what was their role (as an individual or company)?
Lots of times young companies and business owners will pull in footage from brands and companies they have worked with in the past and post it as their own. It is worth your time to make sure you understand what their role was in any footage shown and who they were working for if not themselves.
Do they have completed work samples, similar to what you want?
Make sure when you are asking for a piece of content that you ask for complete samples that reflect what you want versus highlight reels and quick edits. Full samples will reflect the full skills of a production team both with video coverage and graphics. Mark as a red flag any company that will only show you a highlight reel.
What type of video production do they specialize in?
Are they primarily focused on weddings and events? Do they do real estate and capture footage of homes? Are they specialized in corporate branding and doc-style storytelling? Or are they built for local or national commercials? All these questions will help you gain clarity on what their style, scope and experience revolves around.
Is the production team separate from the creative team?
Many times production companies and agencies will function as creatives or executive members of the team. These members' primary job is to make you feel comfortable and answer your questions, but at the end of the day they will not be in the field capturing the footage. This separation can often create a gap between planning and execution and leave you feeling unsatisfied.
