I've owned an animated video production company for the past 4 years and I've heard similar questions time and time again. Video is a complex beast, especially if you're tackling it for the first time. There are a lot of things to consider not only around production, but also strategy, effective messaging, distribution, and measuring and tracking success (which is different for everyone). The main concerns around production are typically: time, money, message and video type (live or animated). Based on a little more information from you, I could help send you in the right direction. My new start-up, Theme Dragon
creates affordable animated videos starting at $700. This isn't suitable for all video needs, but if you'd like to chat please let me know. Even if Theme Dragon isn't the right fit, I could suggest some other resources based on a little more info around your budget and overall goals.
