Plan/Script a video: The first few meetings with a top London video production company involve explaining your vision and listening to suggestions on requirements for achieving your vision. It can seem tedious, but planning and scripting a video ensures that the final product is captivating.
The experts inside or within the production company you choose to work with will provide suggestions on what is trending.

Make sure the company you choose do not skip this.
Organize a video: Organizing a video shoot helps a London videographer or production team to shoot appropriate and valuable footage. Shooting footage in an organized manner makes it simpler to edit the footage into a sensible video. Therefore, it is essential to prepare a strategy and schedule for the video shoot to ensure everything goes smoothly on shoot day.
The London Ontario production company you hire will also organize for necessary (required) shoot day personnel (technicians, actors, creatives, and artists), rentals, gear, project specific technology, props, and more necessary project items.
Shoot a video: Shooting high-quality footage requires the use of high-end video production equipment. A basic shoot requires an HD camera, a camera operator, a lighting kit, and a microphone.
It is essential to specify the size of the crew you want in/at a video shoot. Sometimes, you will need a director and producer present during the shoot. And, elaborate video shoots will require a large team to ensure seamless production.
Let your chosen London video production company know the plans and goals for your project so that they can plan the shoot and do everything necessary beforehand to ensure shoot day is a massive success.
Edit a video: A top London, Ontario, videographer will combine the relevant parts of the footage taken on shoot day (or shoot days) to create a polished video during editing.
Video editing is the last step in the process of London video production.
You can request for extra graphics in your video like intro/outro animations or captions. So, do not forget to do so.
*You can and should also ask for a preview of the edited video after editing – before receiving the final copy. You do not want your allotted revisions to go to waste or to have to use revisions for major changes. You want revisions for cosmetic changes and touch ups only.

Event Videography & Event Video Production
It is essential to keep videos from corporate events that your organization organizes and puts on (and milestones your company experiences) – it is important in order to help immortalize your organization in history and to help preserve the valuable information (industry nuggets and gems) and memories shared at such industry gatherings and meetups. On another hand, a beautiful event recap video from each major company milestone will ensure that your company has memories of each individual milestone that your company (and those behind or involved in it) achieves throughout the years and as time passes. And, this is going to help keep your employees focused and on track – and motivated to want to achieve the next major industry feat.

A wedding video should last for decades so that married couple can share their special days’ moments with future generations. Capturing the emotional moments of a wedding ceremony is an excellent idea for a couple – it ensures that they will get to enjoy those precious moments throughout their lives. The quality of wedding videos has to be the best to ensure the footage withstands the test of time.

Live streaming is extremely popular, especially now that many people like to watch videos and content online (in real time).

Social Media Ads (Ads Production)
Social media ads can bring a ridiculous (life altering) amount of traffic to a website or sales page. However, they are tricky to get right. Shooting an appealing social media ad video requires creativity – and having a whole lot of fun to keep creative juices flowing. Online users of popular social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram) do not watch videos that are not entertaining on said social media platforms. There is a widespread belief that social media is a place for fun and “stupid” stuff. A reputable London production company can assist you in creating an informative – and/or funny, professional, captivating or just plain effective video.

The cost of producing a video in London, Ontario, depends on several factors, including the location (of the shoot), duration of the video, human resources, the type of content being produced, level of post-production (editing) required to achieve desired results, and graphics. A simple video of 1-2 minutes of quality content can cost as much as $20,000 (or as little as $500). Corporate videos, if around 5-minutes can cost upwards of $50,000 (or a more palatable approx. $2500) – depending on the content style and quality.
Alternatively, when it comes to video production (in London), you can find a “videography” package that suits your needs. Most packages include the cost of shooting a video, additional human resources, tech and equipment rentals. You will have to negotiate the price of editing the footage. The average minimum package (across most top London Ontario video production companies including us) for most video types and styles costs over $2000 – and usually includes one camera operator, an HD camera, and a lighting kit.
The kind of human resources and mix of production personnel (videographers, technicians, producers, directors, actors and actresses) you use for the video production project will factor most into the overall cost of the final product. A production that requires a producer and director duo can cost as much as $3,000 plus per minute of video. However, producers and directors significantly improve the content, marketing/advertising effectiveness and engagement levels of a video. A complete crew with technicians, videographers, a director, and producer (plus equipment) will cost as much as $8,000 per day – and that could be a lot of dough for some companies. And, a complete crew can create a production and video that no individual can (alone).
