When you’re looking to make a commercial for your business, film a short movie, or hire a filmmaker for your wedding, you need to hire the best. You can’t afford to roll out a bad commercial, especially if it’s your first introduction to customers in your area. If you are trying to film a movie, you probably don’t have enough money to hire a second film crew to re-shoot the messed up shots. Those sorts of re-shoots cost tons of time and money. If you are looking for someone to film your wedding, you only get one shot at getting it right. There’s no second takes or re-shoots for your wedding. Here’s how to know you’re getting the best money can buy.
Film is a shorthand term for pretty much digital as well as actual analogue film. Digital filmmaking has become increasingly competitive and advanced over the years; in many ways, it surpasses film techniques. Digital is typified by its resolution as well as the colour bit depth. You’re probably familiar with HD or HDTV. High definition television is usually 1920 x 1080 pixels. It’s considered 1080p, because of this second number. 4K resolution is called that because it offers 4,000 pixels of resolution. That resolution is usually 4096 x 2160. It’s not important that you remember those numbers necessarily, but it is important that you know what they mean. 4K resolution is considered cutting-edge at the moment. Many Hollywood and Bollywood films are shot in 4K resolution and then lowered to 1080p for television distribution. That means it is the highest professional quality in current use around the world.
You should only deal with a film production company that has plenty of experience. When you’re dealing with live event filmmaking, you don’t get the option of taking the shot over again, so you have to get it right the first time. That’s why you should make sure that the website of the company you’re hiring has plenty of examples of their experience. You should watch as much of their footage as possible, so you can see what they’re capable of producing. Many production companies will release a demo reel that shows the range of their skills and some of their best work; however, you want also to look into their standard work. You want to see their best, and you want also to see how they work in a real life situation.
What’s most important when you’re hiring a film company is that you know what you are getting. You need to hire specialised, talented, and cutting-edge filmmakers who are familiar with the newest techniques, and they have the newest tools. That’s what you’ll need to create compelling images and exciting videos.
