Which is right for your project or budget . . .
A Videographer or a Production Company ?
It’s important for you to find the right video partner, so we’ve put this guide together to help you decide which type of partner is right for you, your project, your budget, and the production values that are most important to you.
This information is intended to be a respectful comparison between a ‘typical’ videographer (or a low market video company), and a video production company or agency such as Slinky Productions.
The information presented here is by no means definitive, but is a guide based upon our own experience, research and direct feedback from our clients and their own experiences.
