Decades ago, film and video production were limited to movies and commercials of big name brands. This is due to the huge amount of time, effort, and money needed for creating them. Thanks to technology, even small business owners can now hire film production experts at more reasonable rates and better flexibility.
But with so many Vancouver film production companies, entrepreneurs like you wonder how to find the best one for your needs. So how do you do that? By being aware of what film production companies are and how they can provide you with the benefits you desire.
A film and video production company goes by many names: video production, commercial production, corporate video production, event video production, film production, film producers, etc.
“But those are just names; what do these companies really do,” you ask?
Be aware that what they do depend on the type of production company they are. Here are some examples:
- TV production companies like BBC do different types of TV shows, from variety to soap to games.
- Commercial production companies like Red Ripley specialize in the creation of commercials and short films that do not exceed 10 minutes.
- Film companies concentrate on making full-length movies and short films that go beyond 10 minutes.
Here’s a more detailed discussion of what film production is, from the executive producer of a Vancouver film production company:
“Film production historically was all about producing films for the movie theatre. That referred to creating film that was shot on 16mm, 35mm or 70mm film. So it tended to look like film.
Nowadays, there is a transition from film to digital and the cameras that we use (RED Digital Cinema) is one of the first companies to really take on the digital space and create a camera that was high enough resolution to capture really crisp, rich and attractive video that was fully digital and not actually shot on film cameras.
In 2015, even the pros cannot tell the difference between film and digital. They had some tests when they ran “The Great Camera Shootout” where actually professional DP’s were not able to determine whether or not a scene was digital or film; or whether it was shot on a 100k camera or a 1k camera.

How is this possible? Well there is a lot to be said for the post-production of a film. This is where we spend a lot of time working to make sure something looks great.”
