Things to keep in mind when choosing a studio:
Realize that efficiency is the key to great overall value, not hourly rates. For example:
Studio A charges $60 an hour and Studio B charges $75 an hour. Seems like Studio A is the way to go, right ? However, Studio A would need 10 hours to complete your project (total cost $600) and Studio B can do same project in only 7 hours (total cost $525). Which is a better value ?
Check out their reviews which say it all.
What do others think ? Do they back up what the studio is advertising and telling you ? We feel reviews are the single most important thing to evaluate when choosing any product or service.
Don't be seduced by equipment alone.
Anyone can buy gear, it does not mean they know how to use it. Professional gear without professional skills = amateur results. Only professional gear in the hands of a professional producer = professional results.
