We pick the right tools for the job

We always use professional-level video and audio equipment, and edit with Final Cut Pro, Motion, and After Effects. Among the tools in our arsenal are several Sony AVCHD camcorders; Canon HDSLRs with a variety of lenses; tripods, monopods, shoulder rigs, mounted slider dollies, and a Glidecam; wireless lavalier microphone kits with Tram microphones; interview lighting kits; green and blue screens; and backgrounds on stands.

We are reliable.

 

We arrive on time, meet deadlines, and do the job right. Should an unforeseen problem arise, we solve it. We understand the demands of fast-paced businesses, and are committed to living up to the trust our clients place in us.

We know video production is about the people

While professional equipment and technical skills are essential to video production, the human element is equally important. Whether conducting interviews up close, shooting b roll from afar, directing voice-over talent, or reviewing script details, we always treat our clients and their colleagues (and everyone else, for that matter) with the same consideration we show our friends and family. We know how overwhelming video production can be, which is why our continuing goal is to make the experience as fun and easy as possible for clients.
