How to Prepare for a Video Production

To prepare for a video production, you need to be comprehensive with your pre-production work. Here are some of our handiest tips to get you ready to go with your video production:

  • Get your thoughts down in writing. A good way to start is by filling in our client ideas form.
  • Work out a budget. Establish a budget range that you want to devote to the video production project. Not sure where to start? Contact us and we will be happy to show you a range of video production projects, and their associated budgets.
  • Meet with all of the relevant stakeholders in your organisation. Ensure that you are all on the same page as to what you want to achieve.
  • Gather all relevant resources, such as marketing resources, brochures, pdf’s, style guides, previous videos – any already existing assets that may inform the production of your video.
  • Arrange to meet with a video production company. Here are some important questions that will help you to evaluate if what they have to offer is right for you.
  • Ask the production company to present examples of video production projects they have completed in a range of budgets. This will help you to set the budget for your video production.
  • View examples of work that is similar to what you want to create. Note what works and doesn’t work, and share your ideas with the video production company.
