Film Makers

This page lists our most current offering of video production and related services. If you are in need of a service not listed here, don't hesitate to give us a call at (916) 271-4554 or email us to see if it's something we can help you with.


Our production services are available for motion picture productions - both full features and shorts - webisodes, documentaries, meetings, conferences, awards ceremonies, interviews, depositions and testimonials, training seminars and just about anything else you can think of that would benefit from being documented. We keep the original HD video on our hard drives for 120 days, at which time the files are deleted and the only copy of your production that exists is the master hard-drive, or DVD we send you and our master DVD file, which is archived. Typically your videographer will arrive 30 to 60 minutes prior to filming. Setup of a camera and tripod, including white balance and sound check, takes approximately 15 minutes.


General Video Production Rates

Audio comes from one of three sources; 1) The camera's own built-in microphone (no additional charge); 2) Sound mixer/boom package (additional fees apply-see below); or 3) The event venue's own ('in-house') audio department technician. When the venue is providing us with an audio source, it is assumed that audio signal will be of high quality. We always do an audio sound check for levels and clarity but assume no responsibility for the overall audio quality of the video recording when the venue is providing it.


*Please Note: We do not rent our equipment out. If you are looking to just rent equipment, we are happy to refer you to one of our AV Rental partners.
