Here’s why would should hire professionals for video production services instead.

If you are thinking of making a video for a project you are working on or need a demo for a product you are developing, you may be weighing the options of whether or not you should personally handle the video production or hire a professional videographer to handle the job. Here are some of the key reasons you should hire a professional:

Time

This could be the largest pro of having your videography services handled professionally. You know the value of your time better than anyone else. When you work with professional videographers they offer a faster turnaround for your projects. If you choose to create the video yourself, it will eat up your valuable limited time. Even the shortest video can consume hundreds of hours of your time and may end up delaying other items on your to-do list. When you work with a professional, you can be assured that your time is being used efficiently and effectively.

Quality

Professional videographers will have much more experience creating high quality looking and sounding videos. Combining their skill in this craft with professional equipment, you will end up with a much higher quality final product. Many amateur and novice videographers are not aware of some of the finer intricacies that result in a higher quality video; from recording your video on a external video recorder, resulting in a higher fidelity video file with a much higher bitrate than one shot in camera, to proper microphone placement which can reduce room noise, giving you a very professional sounding video. However, when you work with a professional team such as Bonafide Film House, it is possible for you to get a refreshingly crisp video, with extreme clarity and pointed editing.

Value

At face value, video production seems like it can be a very affordable way to create marketing material for your company. Many cameras these days seem like affordable options. Picking up a entry level camcorder or DSLR at your local big box store may seem like a good idea, but in the long run this is not the best option. Without appropriate professional lights, microphones, audio recorders, lenses and pro level tripods, your videos most likely will not result in the quality you are used to seeing from top brands. A proper kit for video production in the end, will cost tens of thousands of dollars and you will still be left without the knowhow for using it properly. Hiring professionals can solve all of these problems and save you all of the stress of having to deal with something you are unfamiliar with in the first place.

If you are interested in having Bonafide Film House work with you to create a professional video, in a timely manner, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.
