Find the best for your needs
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 not only with reasonable rates but also with 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. Consequently, they can provide you with the benefits you desire.
Well, look no further. Plenty of independent video production company nests in Vancouver and are able to provide high-quality help to eager film-makers in, arguably, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Moreover, Red+Ripley can offer you the best custom-tailored videos, be it for; commercial, event, and many more video production services!
Perks of film production in Vancouver
Many of the Vancouver-based companies will offer all the bells and whistles to help eager filmmakers get their production rolling.
To name a few perks, production companies provide professional production and post-production staff, editing suites, professional budgeting and scheduling, and production legal services. Additionally, film and video production companies go by many names. Some of those are named; video production, commercial production, corporate video production, event video production, film production, film producers, and so on.
“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, 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 theater. That referred to creating a film that was shot on 16mm, 35mm or 70mm film. So it tended to look like film.
Transcending equipment, Red Digital
Nowadays, there is a transition from film to digital. Furthermore, the cameras that we use (RED Digital Cinema) are one of the first companies to really take on the digital space and create a camera that has a high resolution. It is enough to capture a really crisp, rich, and attractive video that is 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 about the post-production of a film. This is where we spend a lot of time working to make sure something looks great.
Foresight, pros, and cons
Although it is tougher for independent commercial production companies to gain a prestigious identity, unlike larger companies, they still bear many benefits.
Independent companies differ from major large commercials in that they are, well, easier on the wallet for film-makers, they receive all profit and have complete control over what they produce.
However, with self-sufficiency, you are going to experience disadvantages as well.
- Independent companies generally have smaller budgets than major film companies so are the special effects
- and A-list actors are harder to score.
With this in mind, search around and find an independent company that best suits you, right here in Vancouver. So that you will get your Oscar-winning film-in-the-making ready for the big screen!
