First-Ever Top Video Production Agencies Report Released by Agency Spotter

Agency Spotter's Top 20 Video Production Agencies Report March 2018

The report evaluates more than 340 video production agencies using proprietary research methodology to identify the best 20 listed on the B2B ratings and review authority's website,

The inaugural top production agencies list includes a variety of agencies specializing in video marketing, video production, explainer videos, YouTube videos, advertising videos, and promotional video creation. Because it is the first ever report of its kind, the featured agencies had little opportunity to compare themselves to each other to optimize their chances of winning. This means that they are long-time top performers.

The number one video production agency Lemmon/Hughes on Agency Spotter's report. They prefer to focus on human interests videos versus advertising production alone and believe in the rule of thumb that “no one cares what you have to say if it’s not interesting.”

We are firm believers in the late Howard Gossage's observation: 'The real fact of the matter is that nobody reads ads. People read what interests them, and sometimes it's an ad.'

Todd Lemmon, Creative Director and Cofounder, Lemmon/Hughes

Marketing transparency and alignment are more important now than ever, especially to CMOs and other senior marketing decision-makers, per Agency Spotter's January 2018 Marketing Trends Report. And, Lemmon/Hughes has a very transparent and aligned process for their client-agency relationships: "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."

That level of dedication to clarity and integration is special and cherished by many clients. Lemmon/Hughes works with companies of all sizes. Their clientele includes Verizon, Momentum Sports, IBM, Toyota, PMC, Redbox, Alberto Culver, and more.
