Now lets dive deeper.
It is important for a video production client to be knowledgeable and prepared. They should know what kind of video they want and what is the video for. They should also know the story they want to tell and how it will be told.
A good video production client will have a clear idea of what they want their final product to look like. This way, the production company can plan ahead and give them an estimate as well as a timeline on how long it might take to complete the project.
A good video production client will also have a clear idea on who they are trying to reach with their video, this way it is easier for them to communicate with their team about what kind of shots or footage they need in order to make that happen.
At the end of the day, the clearer you are on what you want and need, the easier and smoother things will be.

So, as a result, you need to be open to things changing from initial plans sometimes. As they say, the only thing constant is change. Be prepared that your ideas may be innovated or improved upon.
Finally, never assume anything, and please ask questions.
That is really it, you can be an awesome client without much effort and your video will probably turn out better since the team enjoyed working with you and on your project.
