How to Hire a Video Crew When You Need to Strengthen the Bench

4.26.16

When you want to hire a video crew; finding a reliable, creative, and well-equipped team can feel as treacherous and unlikely as a trip to Mordor—the enemy-guarded kingdom at the end of Frodo’s quest. And, like the ring bearers, when you find that perfect crew, you want to hold onto your precious, rare commodity until the end of time.

Hire a Video Crew Anytime, Anywhere

It’s an understandable sentiment. Who wants to go through the trouble of finding and vetting a new video crew with every project? Sometimes though, you just want to mix things up. Different DPs have different approaches and a fresh perspective can be, well, refreshing. Other times, you’re hiring in an unfamiliar area or you need a local production crew on the other side of the globe rather than spending the money to send your tried and true team. 

Whether you just want to mix things up, are looking in a new area or need a strong bench for when your go-to team is unavailable, it helps to have some reassurance you’ll find the right person for the gig. A botched job by someone who doesn’t understand your vision is costly, but a reliable production crew who just plain gets you is priceless.
