2 Hungry Dogs Productions and CMI Legal Services recently teamed up to offer court reporting firms their own in-house video department. More and more attorneys are requesting that their depositions be videotaped. Firms that try to contract videographers on a day hire basis give rise to additional scheduling issues for their staff. Firms that create their own in-house video department often stumble with a lack of understanding of the best practices for video.
2 Hungry Dogs Productions and CMI Legal Services can act as a court reporting firm’s in-house video department. The court reporting firm’s logo appears on the shirts, paperwork, delivered DVDs, and even an email address from the court reporting firm’s domain. In addition, the videographer has been trained in best practices and adheres to industry standards so that the court reporting firm’s clients get the best product and the service they deserve from your firm.
