If you have a storyline, participants or actors, and are familiar with directing, a video production company that focuses on filming may be a good fit for your project. The film company brings the resources for recording the video and may even have suggestions for best locations, lighting, and time of day to record for the best video quality.

That's why we've created this list of the best filming companies for you to review. Read through company descriptions, former clients, and notable projects to find the best fit for your business. (And, if you want personalized recommendations, tell us about your project.)
