With so many video production companies to choose from, how do you choose the best one? Hire a real local production company.
It’s easy to see the real benefits here, but here are the top 5 reasons why hiring locally make the most sense.
1. WE KNOW THE LANDSCAPE
In production, location sets the mood. It sets the tone for every project. If you are in need of a bright and happy go lucky backdrop for a family friendly scene, perhaps you have the budget to rent out Chucky Cheese. If that is not in the budget, perhaps you can get a permit from the City of Atlanta and head to Piedmont park one afternoon or maybe the visit the traveling carnival that is in town. Can an out of state production company find these locations? Sure, touristy destinations are always easy to find on Google. But only the locals take productions to the backstreets of Little 5 points or Cabbage town during the Art festival. As an Atlanta local production company, we know where the gems are, and we won’t divulge them in blogs. If you are in need of something special, give us a call.
2. WE HAVE RELATIONSHIPS IN PLACE
If you need a permit, we have those relationships in place already. If you need an award winning music producer or director, we have those relationships in place. If you need talent (on or off camera – above or below the line), we have those relationships in place. If your project is in need of an Arri Alexa we have those, but if you need two – we have those relationships in place. My point is, whatever you or your production may require. . .we can source it locally, quickly because we know exactly where everything is. What set’s us apart from everyone else is that we know everyone in Atlanta because we were born here and have been producing for the biggest brands in the world for more then 10 years.
Every production needs to feed a hungry crew and Atlanta has the best soul food in the South. Whether catering from one of our famous local restaurants or working with one of the vendors which provide catering to the many TV shows and films in Atlanta, rest assured we provide the best selection that will leave everyone happy.
Besides the fact that we know everyone in the business in Atlanta know all the ins and outs of the industry and can make the entire process more efficient. Most important I think is the fact that we are TRULY LOCAL. Maybe you will want to sit in on an edit session or a view dailies before the shoot the following day. Maybe you will want to need to flush out ideas face to face and get opinion outside of your internal team. Maybe you just need to get out of the office because your team has your blood pressure way too high. Our studio is conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta and set up as your second creative home for times just like these. Local production companies simply have more to offer.
5. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY
There is no way around it. People from the south are just more kind. I have traveled everywhere. I spent four months in Europe every year for 10 years, a month in Asia, a month in South America, a month in NY, a month in LA and a month in Australia. On top of that, we work with people in NY and LA almost daily. You may not think about it, but the truth is, we are just more friendly. Maybe it’s the sweet tea, maybe there is something in the red clay. . .perhaps there is a more sinister reasons why we say please, thank you and provide service with a smile. . .who knows. But the fact remains, we do it.
