How to engage a Video Production company

Bringing your video concept to life can be a tough step and then engaging someone to realise your vision. Your video concept is important to your brand and your hard earned budget. It’s at this point it that also you could go horribly wrong or end up with an incomplete video.

So, here’s how to engage a Video Production company and kickstart your production.

First up, when looking for a video production company  – look at their works. Are the look of those works inline with what you are looking to make.

Is this company making similar video to what you are looking into? Often a production company will have a distinct style or lean towards a particular production type. You might find that they’re making a lot of animated TV commercials but you want to make an About us Video that’s filmed. Or they film outdoor action or adventure video but you’re looking for an Explainer. There really is a difference and ability to make it.

Try to find a partner that is a good fit for what you want to make.


Fully Insured and Professional

Make sure the video production company that you are considering have the correct insurances. Public liabilities, business insurance – coverage in the event that they can’t deliver your job.

Imagine you bought half a million dollars of TV advertising space and the production company doesn’t get your ad there in time. Are you protected? Make sure they have proper systems, use professional equipment, and have backup solutions. Do they just have a slick website and amazing gift of the gab but really it’s just a bloke on an iMac in a garden shed.

Take some time to find out who they are. Are there Google reviews or testimonials?
Do you know someone who has worked with them? If you can – find out what that experience was like.


What kind of Video do I need?

brief your Do you know where it’s going after it’s made?

If it’s a website video – your web developer is adding to the website – right? The production company isn’t going to host your video for you.

Are you adding it to YouTube? Do you have the correct licenses? Is the music ok to use there? Do you have any copyrighted material in your video?

Are you making a TV ad? Is it compliant? Has FreeTV Australia seen it? You can’t DropBox your ad to the station, it’s broadcast – who’s sending your ad to the station and instructing them when to play it.

These are all factors that will play a part in ensuring that you end up with a video that meets your requirements. So when planning to produce a video,  work backwards from where your intended use is, and you’ll be able to confidently brief the type of video you need.

Filming with a drone

Add to your video production content with magnificent drone footage. Filmed on a professional Drone with cinematographer. The footage captured in 5.4K with amazing image and colour quality. This will perfectly match the footage that Ottico Lab shoot on the Blackmagic Camera’s. Out drone’s can film in this extra large format and LOG colour profiles – meaning that the shots are just breathtaking. 

To film in Australia, there are some rules with using a drone but don’t worry we have this covered. 

Before each shoot or flight, we’ll check the airspace and map to seek approval. Proximity to airports, heliports and particular landmarks are restricted. Some areas may also have time and day limitations. But we can seek this well before booking a shoot. The pilot is registered with CASA and carries a valid Australian commercial RPA license (remote piloted aircraft). The aircraft itself is registered and holds a current CASA certification. Each flight is also registered – the GPS plots the time, date, speeds, heights and distances travelled with the drone – so we’ve got to do the right thing and keep airspaces and people safe. 

The maximum height  for flight in Australia is 120 metres. Most drones max out at 100 metres, but we can climb the full 120 metres – and the shots are amazing! We must fly with the aircraft within visible line of sight and not around anyone that isn’t participating in the shoot. 

There are rules but we’ll manage all of this – so you can focus on the incredible shots filmed from the sky.
