Can I hire you to shoot video with no editing?
Yes, you can hire me to only shoot the video content, but I do not know why you would do this. If you are hiring me to shoot a video, then why not include the post-production process with it as well? Time and money has already been put into the production of the commercial which includes the time spent making the edits to the footage. But, some businesses do decide to go through with this request and have us only shoot the video part of the process. In most cases…
…that call for this request, we are the ones who are re-shooting the content of a previous shoot. Once our version of the shoot is finished, we upload the content to a hard drive and ship it back to the company who requested another version of the shoot. That is pretty much what goes into only shooting the video portion of a commercial. We send you the raw footage in order for your company to make whatever changes are necessary. Even though this request can be executed, it is much more beneficial for the video production company to complete the edits.
