We have been in this business for over 15 years now and have learned a little bit along the way. We are still infants compared to where we want to go in the Film/Video Production business. This may not reach many people but we want to start sharing a little more of the little bit of knowledge we've acquired over the years.
Our first piece of advice is to learn many different skills in video production. This makes you way more of a threat on a set whether it is for a commercial, marketing video, music video or even a movie. It's been said many times but knowledge is power and the more skills you develop, and not just develop but get really good at, the more work will come your way.....promise that.
We couldn't have built a production company if we were only skilled in one area of production. If we only knew how to hold a boom microphone do you think that we would be able produce projects on a smaller scale/smaller budget? No we wouldn't.
What will make you more dynamic and more desirable is attaining the skills of camera, lighting, sound, writing, editing, etc. This isn't for everyone but we promise that if you work hard enough and want it bad enough then it will come to fruition. We are living proof of it.
When it comes to video production good, clean audio is one of the first things that is overlooked. We cannot stress how important getting clean sound can be for the overall look and feel of your final video.
There are many sites out there touting the do-it-yourself video for your business. But based off of experience you can really mess up your video if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing. Just think about going to a movie in the theater and how important the sound is to that finished film....
We have a client who had a couple of videos produced outside of our work....they were contractors who did their own quick videos. Our client noticed the difference in the quality of sound in our work compared to these videos who clearly used either the phone or the camera's microphone. We literally were paid to re-shoot these videos because the sound was such low quality and had such a noticeable hum in it.
The point is don't skimp when it comes to professional audio because people, especially potential customers, can and will tell. Do it the right way the first time and pay a little more and your overall product will come out way better and reflect on your business in a more professional manner.
The state of North Carolina has caught a lot of flack over the last several weeks because of House Bill 2.
We are not writing this to discuss politics or even talk about the bill itself. We are writing this to plead with those from the outside looking in. Many bigger companies such as PayPal have pulled out plans to build and set up shop in NC based off of this bill. We knew the backlash would be bad but no one thought it would be as bad as it's gotten.
With that being said we are pleading to all industries thinking of coming to NC to not judge this state based off of a few lawmakers who make decisions for the state. Most importantly the film industry. Don't hurt the decent, law abiding, tax paying citizens of the state who continue to work hard on a daily basis. It's sad that everyday folks living in this beautiful state have to pay the consequences because of some lawmakers in Raleigh.
This state is resilient and we will prove to those on the outside how much we have to offer.
