Here is a brief review of some of the different types of production companies out there to help you appreciate their varied needs.
Because of the nature of their work and the extended time-frames involved, feature film production companies often dedicate themselves to just a single project at a time. They may on occasion have access to massive budgets but they are often expected to hunt down the funding for a production, bringing them closer to their sponsors/partners in the commercial world. All this jumping through hoops to get a project off the ground gives you plenty of time to monitor their progress with the help of our Production Intelligence platform, so you can choose your moment to approach them with the service you offer.
Often having the capacity to produce numerous TV shows at once, these production companies are well-oiled machines that need countless services from outside suppliers to keep them going. Some are small, others are massive with huge workforces or are members of much larger groups, and then there are the TV production companies that are the in-house production arms of broadcasting monoliths such as the BBC or ITV.
These specialist production companies help to create every form of TV, cinematic and online advertising footage. They are used to rapid turnarounds and volume work so they often have many things on the go at once.
These production companies have made the strategic decision to stay lean and mean, focusing on just a single niche area of the industry. They may specialise in the production of music videos, animated footage and films, digital production or corporate communications.
