TrendWatch Fast Fact: Finding The Right PeopleMore U.S. production companies challenged by finding qualified videographers and editors
Fact: 51% of production companies cite "finding qualified employees" as top challenge in 2005
Why should you care?
The industry continues to wrestle with finding the right people and in some cases, finding enough of them. More production companies than most other types of studios are feeling the heat of getting the right employees on board. Over six out of ten production companies that do work for episodic television, made-for-TV movies and feature films have this problem. This challenge affects over seven out of ten of the larger production companies. If you're a client who has hired a production company for one of your projects, be sure they have enough people on staff to meet your project's needs. If you are a videographer, editor, sales rep or producer looking to jump ship, hooking up with a production company may be just the ticket needed for your ride.
