So you want to create more video content but are tossing between a DIY project or outsourcing to a Brisbane video production company. Whilst, they both have their pros and cons, weighing them out can help you make the right decision for your company.

Do-it-yourself (D.I.Y)

The benefits of having a DIY video production project is that your company can do it in-house, meaning they will be well versed with the ins and outs of your industry. A DIY project also means employees have full creative control over the production. This makes it easy to set your own timelines and schedule reshoots if necessary.


When it comes to scaling up video content, a DIY project can also be more effective in getting work done – as your colleagues (aka as your crew) are only a yell away. To ensure your DIY project is looking slick, some video production companies, like Vmation, even offer kits to support businesses looking to film their own videos. We give you the gear, and we edit what you shoot. The benefit of this – is that you can get professional-looking videos at a fraction of the price.


On the other hand, full-service production can offer more flexibility and skill, as they house specialists with a diverse array of talent. They are unbiased with their creative decisions and can offer expertise in areas such as writing, editing, and production. Upfront costs (for all the professional gear) are also a lot cheaper when hiring video production companies. You won’t need to spend extra cash on equipment – instead, these will be covered in equipment hire costs. Many Brisbane video production companies, like Vmation, also have the benefit of having in-house animators. This gives you the ability to mix your live-action video with animation if you so choose.


Which is better for me?

At the end of the day, the choice between doing it yourself and full service depends entirely on your individual company needs. If you want a more authentic look, inhouse may be better for you. If you want your work to be more polished and professional, agency may be the way to go.

At Vmation we offer both. So whether you are looking to upgrade your DIY video set up, or for a full-service video production company, Vmation has got you covered!
