In this day and age, it seems that anybody and everybody has a website, portfolio, resume, and/or, even a demo reel. And many times, they look pretty good, don’t they? But sometimes, it seems like there might be something fishy going on. Maybe what you’re reading, or seeing isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. In fact, you might just be getting conned. So, want are some things to be on the lookout for when hiring an Orlando video production company? Well, regarding demo reels, here are a few reminders to help you decipher the many impostors that might be lurking in cyberspace, or, even in that flyer you may have just received in the mail.
A demo reel is essentially a resume or commercial that promotes the services of a company. It also shows what type of productions a company has worked on. Unfortunately people sometimes seem to exaggerate their abilities and sugarcoat the facts. Always double check to see if what’s been portrayed is really true.
The biggest problem with demo reels is from those who present false information or from those who only played a minor part in a production yet still tout their participation as a major role. If you didn’t necessarily play a part in the production of a video, yet you claim you’ve worked on these big productions, it becomes misleading to those who are interested in your services.
Customers are looking for reputable video production companies, and those who do their due diligence by researching you beforehand and realizing that you didn’t play a big a part as they believed could put your credibility at risk.
Production companies falsify demo reels for the most obvious reason: to bring in customers. Not only is this misleading, but it threatens the trust you create with potential clients and current customers. It’s basically the same idea of putting things on your resume that aren’t true or that you didn’t actually do just to “get ahead.” It could end up damaging your reputation.
