The numbers are growing rapidly and video production will keep you competitive in the online world. Still have no video or don’t have a clue how to find a professional Video Studio check out our 6 Short Tips on how to find the right Studio to make your best-animated explainer video.

Here are 6 main points you should know when considering a production company.

1. What Kind of Videos Does the Studio Specialize in?

Not that tricky question, as it generally requires you, the client. It is your job to know what kind of video you’re looking for from the start: Explainer videos, Cartoons, Character Animation, Commercials, TV spots, and promotional videos, Video infographics, 2d graphics, and animation, flash animation.

It is a good benefit if a company also develops original ideas, write scripts, and draw storyboards. Finding the right fit starts with defining your project. If your product or service is unique it is better to choose an animated explainer video like Darvideo Animation Studio does and has great experience in that field.

2. Dig into Portfolio

The proof is in the pudding. Always learn the portfolio and see if it fits into your general ideas. Take a look at script-writing, voice-over, the general essence of the story, the visuals etc. look through numerous studios profiles. Once you’ve compared the quality to other production companies it will be easier to spot which ones stand out.

3. How Long it Takes to Produce a Video?

“It depends” – is not a correct answer. Every project has its timelines. Once you’ve explained the type of video you need – the studio can give a solid answer. In general, a well-produced marketing video will take anywhere from 4 – 8 weeks.

Darvideo Animation Studio makes a detailed schedule for every project before we start and provides you with a step-by-step Animation Production guide. This way you will know all the info about your project. 

4. How Much Guidance Will I Get?

Another way to think about this is whether you want a vendor or a partner? Some clients come into the process with a fair amount of video production experience while others have none. How much do you want to be a part of the process? It’s important to find out if the vendor is willing to shepherd you through the project. Will you be able to participate in the scriptwriting, in the casting decisions, do you want them to take full control and just keep you updated on progress?

Get clarity in advance on how much involvement you wish to have. If your video knowledge is limited this is a very important question to get answered.

5. Who Will Handle My Revisions?

More often than not, your project will require revisions. In this case, you will want a direct point of contact with your video company as a general number can be frustrating.

You should look for a company that puts one person at the head of your project. This person may have the title of the “team lead” or “account manager.”

Some companies may even give you an inside look at the process. This is to help ensure that your feedback always remains a priority.

 6. Means of Communication with a Client?

Communication is key throughout the life of a project and how the client and vendor keep in touch cannot be oversold. Some people like email, others like phone calls, others prefer a project management program.

A preferred method should be established early on and lines of communication should remain open. This will carry on through every phase of the project, like when you have questions about script revisions or design elements. How will the vendor post the latest revisions and how will you be expected to reply? A project management program, basically an electronic communications hub, like Basecamp, is an excellent way to keep everybody in touch.

Conclusion
