Questions for those that work at agency / client with in-house production units:

-do you do mostly lower budgets jobs (under 100k) via in-house and farm out bigger jobs?
-assuming you are non union, how do you get union crews?
-does COVID scare you enough that you’d rather farm out jobs due to potential liability or are you more inclined to keep it in house?

I did in strategy but not production - I can speak to the first point - it was partly budget and but largely the agencies wanted everything to be a grand slam [time, budget] and sometimes you just wanted a double to get the run in.

I ran an in-house production team at an agency. I can answer the first. Yes, we took the lower budget jobs that required faster timelines. Easier to do last minute work without an outside production company involved. Anything bigger, with more time, would go to an outside production company.

As a freelancer and also f/t, I’ve been at several agencies with in-house production. Usually it’s creating for social content and sales/marketing tools or corporate videos for their clients... low to no budget. Often the clients don’t appreciate the work that goes into good social content or production in general and don’t want to pay enough to even just break even. It doesn’t help that the agency itself doesn’t understand the details involved in production most of the time, so it’s difficult to educate and sell it to the client.

Some of the bigger agencies have strived to do more in-house but the teams involved tend to want to go to A-list production and post houses for more experienced directors and editors on the higher profile productions.
