Welcome to 2019, where there’s a real need to create video content. Video isn’t a luxury. It’s everywhere, on every platform, and people expect it.

But not everyone has commissioned a video provider before. There’s a first time for everything! And if this is you, you may be wondering, “How do I get started?”

So: hello! Here’s our guide for how to get started. Our promise to you is — it’s easier than you think!

How do I get started?

First, we’ll outline a few things for you to think about. And then we’ll explain how we’ll help.

There are three critical things for you to know:

  • The due date of the project. Start at the finish, and work your way back! Knowing when your project goes live will help us schedule and plan it.
  • The video’s purpose and audience. Videos (should!) serve a purpose – to inform, sell, or entertain – and knowing who will watch your videos mean they’ll be in the right tone, style, and format.
  • Who needs to sign off and approve your project. This helps you, because there’ll be no unpleasant surprise of “oh, no, the CEO should’ve seen this before we finished it!”, and us, because there’ll be no deadline-altering shocks.

On top of this, there’s one non-essential (but helpful!) thing for you to consider:

  • Examples of videos you like! There’s a whole video production language to learn, and regardless if whether it’s your first time commissioning a video project – it helps to show us exactly what you’re after. We’ll discuss your examples, filter what’s possible by budget, location, and timeline, and work from there.

And now, let’s talk about what we’ll do.

Conversation is a big part of how we work: one of our biggest skills is actively listening to your needs, to develop an understanding of your perfect project.

Once you’ve answered the questions above, you’re ready to contact us. You don’t need to know all the answers. This is enough to get started. And getting started is easy; click here to contact us.
