Understanding the entire process of a video for a video production company along with experience in sales, customer, productive and research is a plus for any business. Pro- viding videography, editing, lighting, writing and voice overs for all projects can save a large amount of money because outside video companies normally overcharge. Little things like knowledge of lighting details in every story or video helps sales depart- ment. The use of a DSLR, stedicam, glide, and drone gives a multitude of differences in a production project. The greatest thing to bring understand is customer knowledge and knowing how they want their story to come to life. Being able to write, edit, shoot and gather information and do voice overs is a huge plus for any campaign for business.
