The stakes are high when it comes to selecting a freelance camera crew for your production. You’re making an investment in your company when you produce a video and you want to enlist a team that gets the right results.



What to look for in a crew


When you set out to find a freelance camera crew to film what you have envisioned, you want someone that will be understanding of what your goals are with the project and what needs to be captured. Here at Dream Engine we are as invested as you are in the success of your project and we will go above and beyond to ensure that you’re happy with the result. You should look for a crew with a lot of experience, as no two shoots are the same. You should also look at some past work of the production company to make sure that you’re satisfied that they have the track record to meet your expectations.

Our Experience

Dream Engine have been a leading video production company for over fifteen years now, and over that time we’ve developed a method for filming that is reliable, trustworthy and of an extremely high standard. Whether you have close involvement with the shoot or are just involved in the planning, you want to make sure the crew you hire is up to the job. We have worked with some of the biggest brands in Australia, and the world. IBM, Suncorp Bank, Spalding and BMW have all enlisted our services.

Our process

We work with you to make sure that the footage you are presented with covers all your bases and looks and feels right for your brand. We will work with clients very closely to make sure that even if you can’t be there, the shoot will go smoothly. Whether it is a live event, interview, or corporate video, we are experienced in all those areas and can fulfil the guidelines you set.  We will also communicate with you regularly so you can rest easy in the knowledge that we understand your brief and we have the expertise to execute it.

What to expect

If you’ve never worked on a video production before, chances are you have a lot of questions. With a series of phonecalls and meetings, we will answer any questions you have about the project, and if you’re new to video completely, we can explain the whole process to you clearly in simple terms. On the day of the shoot you can expect a highly professional crew that are well presented, punctual and great with your clients. We are a full service production company, so whatever your video needs are, we can look after all aspects of production.
