You need a video, and you decided that you need to hire someone to help. Great!
Before you start speaking with production companies about your proejct, you should go through this list of questions to make sure you have all the answers and details needed to describe your project.
For you, the potential client, we understand you’ll shop around with other agencies and producers. Being able to articulate your project well will help you compare apples to apples when you start getting estimates back.
An alternative approach, when shopping around, would be to use this list to create an RFQ and blast it out to all the agencies you’re interested in working with, and get submissions back!
At The Brute Squad we often get phone or web leads asking for us to bid on a project, which is great, but sometimes these calls are a bit premature and we can’t really help. Why? Well because we often ask a series of questions to qualify the lead / project. If the potential client is prepared, the call is a breeze and we can quickly and accurately create an estimate. If the potential client doesn’t have many answers then we’re left to speculate and are left shooting in the dark. (There’s a video production double-entendre in there somewhere).
Here’s a list of the questions we’ll typically ask in the first correspondence between a potential client and us, to best determine the scope and scale of the project. Before you contact any video production agency about a project, we suggest you have a look at these questions and prepare your answers as accurately as possible.
