what to consider when hiring a videographer

Searching for the right corporate videographer for your video project can be tricky. There are a variety of Orlando videographers to choose from, and each bring a different style, level of quality and price point to the table.

So how do you know if you are choosing the right corporate videographer for your project? Here are 5 things to consider before you hire:

Equipment Does the videographer have the top of the line equipment needed to create a quality video? This includes camera, sound, and lighting equipment. Request details on the equipment they have at their disposal to use on the project.

Experience Does the videographer have experience filming and producing the type of video you are looking to create? They may have created several great testimonial videos, but if you are looking to capture a live event and they don’t have experience in that area, you don’t want to end up being the guinea pig. An event is very different than shooting in a studio. You only have one chance to capture the moment, so it’s important to work with an experienced videographer from a reputable video production company

Turn Around Time What kind of turn around time can you expect from the videographer after filming is completed?

Style Take a look at a few videos the videographer has produced. Are they in the same style you envision for your video? Or are they more artistic, boring, or cheesy than you are going for?

References Often times videographers are freelance professionals rather than representing a video production company. If you decide to work with a videographer, make sure they have an adequate portfolio of work with solid references.

Price Create a budget for your project, and gather quotes from several different videographers and video production companies. Going with the cheapest available is not always the best option if it costs you in time and quality in the end. And on the flip side, the most expensive doesn’t automatically mean you will get what you are looking for.
