Choosing a video production company

Choosing a video production company

Search on Google or other online search engines and the amount of video production companies can seem overwhelming. All of them seeming to offer a similar service with the same types of clients. Media2u has been established since 2005 and we’ve seen many companies come and go. If you are looking to work with a video production company in Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex or the South of England, here are some questions you should be asking:

What does their recent work look like?

Actual examples of work arguably matter more than a showreel. Who was the client? Does the company work directly for the client or is it subcontracted work? What does the work look like?


Have clients provided testimonials? Are they reputable long-established companies?

Can they help?

An experienced video production company should be able to help you realise your vision within your creative budget, but also bring their own ideas and experience to the table. This experience can help you spending money unnecessarily but also

Are they insured?

Public Liability and Employers Insurance is considered essential for any video production company to operate on location. Media2u is insured for both of these for your protection and peace of mind.

Straightforward costs?

Media2u has a belief that projects should be budgeted up front and the final cost should only vary if the client changes the project specification

Where are they based?

Sometimes companies from the other side of the country can use customised landing pages to pretend they work locally to you. You may even receive emails or phone calls saying a company is working in your area on a given day and would you like a video. This is no good for a long-term relationship with a production company. Come the second video you may find extra travel costs may be bundled in to your production costs.

Media2u is situated on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, just 10 minutes from Southampton, and 30 minutes from Bournemouth, Basingstoke and Portsmouth. We work across the South of England and have regular clients Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire and beyond.
