When you’re looking to start a video production project in the Boston area, there are a range of video companies to choose from, offering services in a range of disciplines and specialties. Not all video companies are created equal – doing your due diligence to research your options before launching into an endeavor with any one company will ensure that the company you choose is suited for your project and able to meet your needs as a business.
There are multiple tiers of the video world, ranging from the freelance videographer, to the company that offers the highest level of service – the video agency. Choosing a video company which doesn’t meet the scale of your project will lead to results that don’t match the goals of your company and your project. You can’t fault the video company for this — a video production company can’t do the job of a video agency, just as a freelance videographer can’t do the job of a video production company
While we define ourselves as a ‘video agency’ rather than a video production company because of our capacity for advanced planning and strategy, Skillman Video Group appreciates the role of the video production company within the video ecosystem, as experts at video production within their appropriate scale.
Skillman Video Group: Video Agency
The creative director, unique to the video agency, acts as your guide and consultant from the first steps of learning about your business, through the final rounds of post-production. The video agency works closely with you well before the day of the shoot to learn about your company, ask the hard questions, and determine the best strategy for your video project.
A creative director will take the time to learn about your company and its goals, then help you answer the most pressing questions you might have about the nature of your video – Will your video be scripted? How many videos are you going to make and what will be the content of them? Will you be doing animation or live action? If you’re doing animation, what will that animation look like? Is it 2D or 3D? What are your brand standards in terms of coloring, logos, and overall tone? If you’re doing live-action video, who are you going to interview and what are you going to ask them? What kind of supplementary footage are you going to capture and where?
By answering these questions, SVG will craft a blueprint for your video content that is purposeful, cogent, and will ultimately produce stunning video. Skillman Video Group is here for projects that need guidance from start to finish. We thrive off difficult projects, and, as a video agency, this is where our value is added.
