video agency

The video production industry is a beast that continues to change. The impact of the video production agency on marketing is shifting and advertising agencies strive to deal with the demands of this ever-changing world of business. The economic slowdown has put pressures on advertisers to reduce costs. But cost reductions are only part of the story. The industry is changing in creative and production.
