Starting a video production company

I thought this article was really great a spot on! As an owner of a video production company myself based in Phoenix Arizona (http://dmakproductions.com), we had a very similar start. One thing that really helped us was reaching out to other video production companies in our area. We met with 3 or 4 professional producers who had their own companies and we asked if they would be willing to meet us for lunch, our treat, to pick their brains about the business. We didn't have anyone that wasn't willing to meet with us. Those first relationships that we built are actually still in tact. In fact, we had a five-figure job come our way a couple weeks ago, and we decided to bring in one of the first producers that we've met with and his crew on this shoot as we needed additional crew. I'm sure he's glad he met with us some years later!
