Three Questions to Ask Before an On-Location Video Shoot in DC

It is difficult to get the answers that you need when you don’t know what questions to ask. Yet, asking the right questions can be very important to a smooth on-location video production session in Northern Virginia or Washington D.C.

Three Questions You Really Want to Ask

When you ask the right questions, you can avoid unnecessary, unwanted, and potentially costly surprises. Therefore, if you have decided to use a specific site in the Washington D.C. area for video production, then it is important to ask the following questions well in advance of your video production date:

  • Are there any circumstances under which you will change the date? You need to know if the date may be changed because of weather, political events, or other circumstances beyond your control.
  • Is our plan and the equipment we plan to use okay? You don’t want any surprises when you arrive on location and are told that you can’t have access to the area that you thought you did or that your equipment isn’t allowed.
  • Who is my contact person here? You need someone to give you the access you need to the site and to answer questions should they arise prior to and on the date of your video shoot.

The answers to these questions can help make your video shoot smoother, less frustrating, and even less costly.
