"Get to know the best custom video makers out there."

If you are reading this you are probably looking for a custom video production company to get a video done. Spending hours to scour through a sea of information on Google, then narrowing down your search before you make a decision might take forever.

Well, we know your struggle so to help you save time and to make your life easier, you will find a list of video companies that offer custom video production as main service or as part of their services.

We have done the legwork by going through their services and portfolio before gathering the best of the best as well as some affordable options in case you (or your boss) are budget sensitive. 😊

Before we dive into the list, I’d like to briefly explain what we (video professionals) call a custom video. A custom video is a type of video that is made from scratch for you. Be it a product presentation, explainer type, motion graphics video and so on, it will be created specifically to your needs and liking without using any pre-made animated template or footage.

I should warn you that you are expected to fork out a premium price for this type of videos as producing such videos requires a proper team of experts (storytellers, animators, art directors, account managers and coordinators).
