Choosing the Perfect Video Editing Company
Hiring a video editing company in Chicago is like hiring one anywhere, except that you have a huge number of choices in a large city. But whether you have many or few choices, your digital video editor needs to be chosen wisely.
The major criteria that people think about are asking for examples of the editors work and the price they will pay. However there are more criteria you should consider. Here are some things you may also want to throw into the mix:
Initially yes. But ultimately, probably not. I was reminded of that fact as we recently filmed a short video production for an optometrist’s website. It’s only a 14 second shot and there was some discussion among the owners of the business as to whether it would make sense to film the sequence with an iPhone.
They could have saved themselves the cost of us doing the production. However, the image quality, framing, depth of field, lighting, camera move and other elements wouldn’t have been as good as what we did with our experienced videographer and professional equipment. And as I’ve mentioned many times, people generalize from your video to your business. Good video means a good business and of course the opposite is true.
