  1. A friend of mine has been thinking about hiring someone to help him with a video project he is working on, and I was curious about how you would go about choosing someone. I really like that you say to get quotes from various production houses. It would be nice to know that you have all these options on the table.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Frank!

      It’s always good to go into a production company search with a list of your needs, whether that’s price, location, equipment, team size, or any other qualification. Once you have an idea of what those needs are, you can start assessing vendors by checking off how many of your requirements they meet.

By getting to know them better it might also help to keep them in good contact with you throughout the commercial’s production.
