“If there’s magic in boxing, it’s the magic of fighting battles beyond endurance, beyond cracked ribs, ruptured kidneys, and detached retinas. It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream nobody sees but you.”

Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris, Million Dollar Baby

Video crews have to be fighters. There’s no coasting. There’s no relying on someone else to pick up the slack if you have an off day. It’s just you—pounding the pavement with a load of gear on your back, facing off against competitors, keeping up to date on ever-changing technology and now, ensuring everyone’s safety with COVID-era safety measures, too.

It’s not enough to be a pro behind the camera. You also have to be an expert in marketing, finance, and interpersonal communications. Often, you just have to put your dukes up and act as your own advocate. It’s a lot to manage. That’s when it’s nice to have someone in your corner.

The best partner video crews can have

How much time would you free up if you could skip prospecting and fill your pipeline with desirable jobs? High-quality clients who understand the business realities of video production are hard to come by. Those who pay quickly are even harder. Time is money and clients and crews alike save both when they work with Crew Connection.

When you’re busy with work, the last thing you want to do is hound someone over an aging invoice. Crew Connection streamlines communication, cuts the red tape, and sends net 90 packing. Our crews are paid within 30 days—guaranteed.

COVID-19

This pandemic put production on hold for many video crews. Formerly busy production houses have had to adjust to the changing circumstances—by getting creative on existing projects, shifting their offerings, and adding safety measures. Running any business is hard and the pandemic just made it infinitely harder.

In boxing, you may be the one out there in the ring throwing punches, but there’s always someone in your corner. Now more than ever, video crews need partners to advocate for them. With a profile on Crew Connection, you get your very own marketing expert, sales rep, and accountant in your corner. And that’s worth a million dollars, baby!
