    Steven shot a 4 minute video for us. He was very professional, and more importantly, had a calming personality. He made our speaker feel very comfortable!

    Steven Volk produced a video for our company that captured a testimony from one of our clients. I found Steven to be professional, accommodating, and very quick to respond. We are please with the high definition quality of the video. I would recommend his service.

    Thanks Dustin. What a great way to start 2014 working on an Advil project at the Winter Classic in below freezing temps with 105,000 crazy hockey fans! Your team was outstanding and I was also very pleased with the final video!

  • 5/5 stars October 3, 2013

    High quality services. Steven takes the time to understand the material we want to shoot. You can count on Steven to capture everything you need and then work with you to edit videos that tell the story you want told. Highly recommend.

  • 5/5 stars October 2, 2013

    I really enjoyed working with Steven! He was very friendly and professional, and we frequently relied on his experience to keep our project moving forward. We love our final video! It has done great things for our business so far. I would definitely work with him again in the future.

  • 5/5 stars September 30, 2013

    Steven is very professional and easy to work with. He's committed to getting the job done to the customer's satisfaction. He worked very closely with us every step of the way on our marketing and promotions video and, in the end, our organization had exactly what we wanted/needed. This is the second time we've used Volk Video Services and we are very pleased with the quality of his work and his attention to detail.

  • 5/5 stars May 15, 2013

    Great job getting the work done in a timely fashion. Being flexible and being able to adapt to sometimes unexpected scenarios was also appreciated. Good communication throughout the process as to status of the project(s) was also helpful.

  • 5/5 stars May 14, 2013

    Working with Steven Volk on the editing of my film was a professional pleasure. He is an excellent editor, going way beyond making mere cuts. He became very involved in the creative story line and offered numerous suggestions on imagery and accompanying audio (sound and music). He brought my film to life, as he was able to grasp the full concept I had in mind. I am planning three major projects again with him in the near future.

  • 5/5 stars January 3, 2013

    We have used Volk Video Services for two dance performances. He was great to work with! He is very friendly, professional, knowledgable, patient and really works with you to produce what you want! Everyone loved the video... We had a menu driven dvd & a compilation he created for us to music as a surprise in the video! He also gave us the video only one month after our show - which was during the busy Christmas season... I highly recommend! Please contact me with any questions.

    Steven V. from Volk Video Services replied to this review on January 3, 2013:

    Thank you for the kind words Nyiri. It is always easier to produce a great video when you have an outstanding show to film. Your show has always been fantastic with excellent costumes, choreography, lighting, music and of course dedicated performers. I was so happy when you brought Volk Video back after a couple of years trying other video services companies. It is hard to compete with free or very low cost video provided by parents or a "friend of a friend" but it is very rewarding to be asked to come back and work for someone that recognizes price is not always the best measurement of quality. I am so grateful for you getting us back involved. Steven

    excellent from beginning to end product

  • 5/5 stars December 4, 2012

    Mr. Volk converted old 35mm slides to a DVD in a professional and timely manner. He is customer oriented and I was very pleased with the results.

  • 5/5 stars November 15, 2012

    I've worked with Steven on numerous projects over the years for several organizations and he has always been responsive, reliable, professional and personable. I would highly recommend him for any video or editing project.

  • 5/5 stars November 1, 2012

    I have worked with Steven on two videos for the Birmingham Schools. Both times I found Steven professional, accommodating, and very talented. Both videos surpassed our expectations and delivered exactly the message to our viewers we were looking for. It was a pleasure to work with Steven!

  • 5/5 stars October 24, 2012

    From the moment I placed a call to Steven about my project, I knew I was in good hands. He truly understood the questions to ask me before I had ever thought of them. He was professional, courteous and always seeking the best product possible. He went above and beyond my expectations.

  • 5/5 stars October 23, 2012

    I worked with Mr. Volk in his production of a video for All Saints' Church's 175 Anniversary Celebration. His production far exceeded everyone's expectation on the committee. Wherein we expected only a video of the celebration events, Steve was able to create a video that not only depicted a pictorial history of our church but also a marketing and recruitment tool. His quoted price was well within the budget for this project and he was very professional in working with members of the church. He met all scheduled deadlines and I know in speaking for the church we would certainly feel comfortable in retaining his services again should the occassion arise.

  • 5/5 stars October 22, 2012

    Volk Video is a pleasure to do business with. Steven Volk is truly a professional. He does great work and truly takes the time to understand the customers wants and needs! I would highly recommended this company if you're looking for an outstanding result regardless of the scale of your project or request.

    Steven took on a safety video project for us at the last minute. He was able to get the whole thing done in 3 weeks - meeting our tight deadline at work. He was very professional, friendly and quick to respond. We will definitely use his services again.

  • 5/5 stars October 21, 2012

    He was not given a great deal of lead time and he handled the
    project in very professional way. We were very happy with
    the final video.

    Steven V. from Volk Video Services replied to this review on October 21, 2012:

    Thank you Carolyn. It was a pleasure working with you and all of the people we interviewed and filmed at the Church and your outreach missions. I enjoyed learning about the amazing 175 year history of All Saints and if not for your effort to organize the photos and historical documents we would have only had 2/3 of the story - the present and future.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Be sure to ask your potential service provider what value they bring in helping you tell your story. Just about anyone can shoot and edit a video, you really want to find out if they have the experience needed to help you accomplish your goals and objectives. Also be sure to ask to see examples of the work they do so you can determine if it meets your production quality standards.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I would want to know the experience level of every person involved in my project as many companies use interns or people that are brand new to the industry and that can cost you time, money and quality. New people do bring fresh ideas but it takes a balance to get the right value. I would also find out what the average time between production and the finished final video is. Many companies outsource one aspect of the project which means you can loose control.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What parts of the project will be done in house versus outsourced? How long have you been in the business full time? How do you help me meet my goals? Do you offer services beyond the technical aspects of production and editing? What different ways can you help me get my video to the places my intended audience can view?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Buyers will get their desired results faster if they have a vision or an idea of what they want a video to do for them. The more time you spend defining what you want the viewer to do after they watch your new video the faster we can produce your video (and lower cost = higher/faster ROI). It is not that important to have all the details and story boards complete before calling us.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Our clients enjoy greater results from projects we help them with because we take the time to understand their goals and we help them refine the story to drive the desired action from each viewer. We believe that a great video starts with a well defined message and objective and the actual production has enough entertainment value to attract a viewer and hold their attention until we direct them to take action.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The most rewarding part of owning a video services company is seeing our projects drive results for our client. We have maintained a diverse cross section of business, government, education, not for profit and service/product providers and consumers as clients so that we enjoy leveraging our knowledge across all types of projects.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I started in photography with a darkroom for B/W and Color film in the 1970's.
The 80' were a transitional era from film to VHS/ Beta and I was an early adaptor of technology. The 90's brought digital music, cameras and the internet.
Now Video is ubiquitous as I tell my client's stories.
