Our Top Five Takeaways from 2019
1) Use a project management platform to increase team productivity
When it comes to team productivity, using an online service to help keep everything and everyone organized is essential. When you have multiple projects taking place at once, you may need a little help keeping things in order. Project management software helps project managers and teams complete client requirements while managing time, budget, and scope constraints. However, with so many available options, choosing the right tool can be confusing. Check out some of our favorite team platform sites we like to use:
2) Always have a behind-the-scenes shooter
If you’re involved in the video production industry, then chances are you have heard someone use the term “BTS” on set before. BTS or “behind the scenes” is very important to creatives at work because it shows the team behind all the magic. The plus side to having BTS videos or photos is that you can learn a lot about your production internally. Having this content can also be a good way for a prospective client to see how you work and what type of equipment you use. Check out our behind-the-scenes reel to see what we are talking about!
3) Don’t be afraid to try something new
You never know what's to come in the future, but it’s important to always be ready for the unexpected. This past summer, our creative director, Vince, was given the opportunity through Kursza, to tour with American country music duo, Florida Georgia Line. Although this type of work was new to us, we decided to take a risk and be open-minded to learning a new part of the industry. At first, it was a weekend gig that later turned into sleeping on a tour bus, flying on personal jets, and traveling the world for 6 months.
“This experience really allowed me to see the music industry in a whole new perspective and I am grateful to have captured a part of their journey” - Vince Pinto
4) Traveling out of the country - “the fast way”
If you're traveling out of the country, be sure to have your passport ready. Luckily for us, all we needed was our cell phone to get us to the front of the lines, and here is how you can, too! Download the Mobile Passport app and save time during the entry process at most major U.S. airports and cruise ports! You will thank us later!
5) Invest in your brand
As you grow your company, it’s important to always be investing back into your brand...it will only help you to keep growing. This year, we decided to take some time to make a JV Studios merchandise collection to expand how we market our brand. Although we are not a clothing company, these types of elements can drive a business forward. Building your brand is always a sound investment.
