How to Hire the Right Video Partner
As any good partnership has shown us, it’s who you choose to work with can make or break your entire career. Choose wisely, and you’ll inevitably find yourself at the pinnacle of success. Choose poorly, and you’ll have thrown away precious hours and time toward something that end up being nothing but a cleverly disguised drain.
1. Where Do You See Yourself?
Assume that everything will work out the way you want it. Where do you see the final product? How big are you hoping to be? Once you know this final destination, you’ll know exactly what direction to take. The bigger your dream, the more confidence you’ll need in your partnership.
2. Can You Trust Them?
Once you have a direction, find a partner you know that you can rely on no matter the situation, time or day. Too few people value work seriously and are notorious for passing off their work to others. In a partnership, the only other person to pass work to is you, leaving you with extra work you initially thought would be shared.
3. Will They Deliver?
Finally, make sure your partner can achieve the standards you hold yourself to. Poorly filmed, low-grade movies are not going to attract big name clients. Even if it takes longer to find a perfect partner, the delay is well worth it.
