First-ever Top 20 Video Production Agencies Report


Earlier this week, we published Agency Spotter’s first-ever Top 20 Video Production Agencies Report. The inaugural list comes from an evaluation of more than 340 agencies specializing in video marketing, video production, explainer videos, YouTube videos, advertising videos, and promotional video creation. Because it is the first of its kind, the agencies featured had little opportunity to compare themselves to each other to optimize their chances of winning, meaning they are long-time top performers.

Top 20 Video Production Agencies March 2018

The number one video production agency on the report is Lemmon/Hughes. Inspired by human interests rather than by advertising production alone, the agency operates under the following rule of thumb: “no one cares what you have to say if it’s not interesting.”

Marketing transparency and alignment are more important now than ever, and Lemmon/Hughes accounts for this while navigating client-agency relationships, saying “we are all account executives… [working with us means] no layers, no games of telephone, zero latency-understanding, no gatekeepers, and no precious divas. Simple as that.”

Lemmon/Hughes’ clientele includes Verizon, Momentum Sports, IBM, Toyota, PMC, Redbox, Alberto Culver, and more.

Here are the top ten agencies on the list:
