VS Video Productions based in Denver discusses tips on how to hire a competent video company

Even with access to high-end camcorders today, most friends and family don't have the training and or experience as well as the broadcast equipment of a professional videographer.

Why Should I pay for a pro video when my friends or family can tape it with their camcorders?

Even with access to high-end camcorders today, most friends and family don't have the training and or experience as well as the broadcast equipment of a professional videographer. We do this work full time and we pay special attention to camera angles, sound quality, lighting as well as content. We also use multiple cameras to capture all the angles of a video production presentation whereas an amateur cannot afford to use multiple cameras. We also use state of the art editing techniques to create a professional presentation.

I have a HD camera isn't that good enough?

Even with access to HD prosumer cameras, just having the camera will not be good enough.

We are professionals with years of education and practice that perform theses duties on a daily basis. We have invested thousands of dollars into professional video production equipment, such as pro cameras that have higher resolution than the prosumer cameras. We also have access to equipment such as dollies, camera cranes, teleprompters, high end audio and other professional grade video equipment that most consumers cannot afford.

There's no standard certification procedure to hiring a videographer or video production company. Evaluate candidates based on their work, their references and their unique style. The best way to come to a decision is not by price alone. Meet with the videographer and discuss what your needs are. A price quote alone can result in hiring a videographer thay may not live up to your expectations. Make sure to ask the videographer to see a completed video they have done. Demo tapes only highlight the best video clips they have compiled. You should look for shots that are stable shot mostly with a tripod. Why pay someone to do a video for you when the shots are shaky out of focus and you can't hear the sound. Make sure the videographer uses multiple audio microphones to capture every person that speaks. Look for quality of the video, make sure it is color corrected and is not over saturated or completely dark. All these qualities are important when hiring a competent videographer.
