If you get in touch with a company and they don’t get back to you, it either means they’re unorganized or don’t have the bodies to do work and answer emails. So you’ll either end up working with a company who has poor organizational skills or isn’t big enough to handle multiple projects.

They’re Honest – Honesty is the best policy and a great video production company will always be honest with you. Everything from pricing to idea concepts; they’ll tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
