Find a Videographer to Cover my Event

Video production for events is one of the most difficult assignments in video production. The reason is, is because of all productions, it has the most unknowns going in and very little time to get it right. For instance, you don’t know what sound system is being used, if the lights will be up or down, and where you’ll have room to set up. As a result of these moving parts, its difficult to always get it all covered.

The following breakdown is for those of you looking to hire a videographer to capture footage and sound from your next event, to help you know what questions to ask before you hire.


What are the 3 most popular marketing video types?

As a visual species, humans find videos more engaging, more memorable, and more popular than any other type of content. Video as a means of storytelling and advertising is no longer a nice option – it’s a necessity. If you want to increase conversion and exposure, a video marketing strategy is required. Whether you have an eCommerce store, a local gym or run a software company, adding video to your website can help turn visitors into enthusiastic customers. As a matter of fact, visitors stay longer on your site if it has some video on it.


How to Find an Affordable Video Producer

When there is a video need, how do you find the right video producer that you can afford? Not surprisingly, it is not as simple as you would like it to be. First, where do you go to search for one? Craigslist often comes to mind but the site has not reinvented itself to keep up with what users really want to be able to source the right video producer. What about the various platforms where videographers can post their reel, pricing and contact information? You can search there but prices will be all over the place with no apparent reason for why. You could also post a RFQ but then you have to sift through the quotes and try to determine which one is best - and do you know what to look for and ask about to pick the right one, if you have no experience with video production? Keep in mind also, the best videographers are busy and the ones that have time to look for work are probably the lower end of the spectrum, talent-wise.


What does it cost to produce a video?

If you have spent any time attempting to get a quote for a video you want produced, I'm sure you've discovered that prices are all over the place from $99 to $50,000. With that kind of price range it's helpful to know why? This article is written to provide some transparency in how video production is priced.

Pricing for video can be compared to automobiles like Lexus and Toyota. Lexus is built by Toyota but features are added to a Toyota beyond the "requirements" to produce the luxury brand Lexus.


Decentralized video production services

SteadyTake was formed to decentralize video production services. Video production has been only local until now. Typically, a local production house or even a local videographer with editing skills will perform all of the tasks involved in producing video content. This includes pre-planning where decisions are made about creative direction and treatment. The production process involves the creation of the assets including footage, sound, voice and music. Finally, post production is accomplished by an editor, directed by the lead on the project and according to the plan laid out in pre-production.

The new video production model of de-centralization reduces the cost and production time for video.
