Advertisers on Craigslist

I am writing this because I am pretty disgusted at the ads I see for video production personnel on Craigslist. However it is truly buyer beware on Craigslist. I have hired some good people but have also had some really bad ones. You really have to check these people out if you are going to use them on your crew. This blog does not put blame on  Craigslist but condemns the advertisers that place ads on Craigslist to hire video professionals in our industry.I don’t know If I should laugh or cry when I see some of these posted ads by advertisers, that want to pay $250 for a two day shoot or an ad I saw for an HD shooter for $125 per day. Most of the pro guys don’t use Craigslist because they have established clients, but even for the guy that is just starting out or even with someone with some experience this pay scale is outrageous. The main point to this is that by these advertisers wanting to pay third world wages in our industry it devalues our business. Video Production must have a standard, that is what diffirentiates us from uncle Harry with his camcorder and his $50 editing software he purchased online. I truly hope that no one is that desperate to take these jobs at these rates and shame on these advertisers that actually think someone is going to give them a quality product at these rates. We are not in the fast food industry and don’t let us become that. Let them know what the industry standard is which is usually $75 per hour and up. Most of us have college degrees, we have also invested thousands of dollars in equipment and provide our clients with superior productions. Stand up for yourself and the industry and let them know that. I am hoping that Craigslist actually starts charging advertisers to post jobs and eliminates the free ads, as this will hopefully filter out those advertisers that are looking for cheap labor. I hope these advertisers get to read this and don’t treat our industry like the fast food industry, beacuse we are not.

How to hire a videographer

Many individuals ask why should I pay for a pro video when myself or friends and family can tape it with our camcorders ? Even with access to prosumer camcorders today, most friends and family don’t have the training and or experience as well as the professional broadcast equipment of a professional videographer. We have made the investment of purchasing state of the art broadcast quality cameras and editing systems that most of the public cannot afford to invest in. Professional video production companies also have other equipment that most consumers don’t have such as camera cranes,dolly systems, multiple cameras, professional audio microphones, and most of us have college degrees and years of training at broadcast stations and cable networks. If you are a company that wants to promote your image to consumers investing in a professional video presentation will make your company look professional which is very important if you are trying to maintain a good image and sell your products to consumers. If you are an individual and have an important event to capture such as a wedding or special event that you want to keep for a long time, then it is smart to hire a professional videographer that has the skills and the ability to make the production look professional. The best way to come to a decision about hiring a professional videographer is not by price alone. Meet with the video production company and discuss what your needs are. A price quote alone can result in hiring an individual or company that may not live up to your expectations. Make sure to ask to see a completed video production. Demo tapes only highlight the best video clips they have compiled. For technical specifications you should look for video that is stable shot mostly with a tripod. Why pay someone to do a video for you when the shots are shaky out of focus and you can’t hear the sound. Make sure the videographer uses multiple audio microphones to capture every person that speaks. Look for quality of the video, make sure it is color corrected and is not over saturated or completely dark. All these qualities are important when hiring a competent videographer. We will offer more tips and techniques in our upcoming blogs.
