About this pro
Al Maruggi is, without question, the best, most professional, videographer I have ever worked with. Al was responsible for 100% of the sound, set, lighting, videography, complex post-production editing, and FCPX and Motion 5 work for my extraordinarily complex 3-hour "light board" instructional video — and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome. He listened carefully to what my goals were, and then engineered the entire videography process, from initial conception and design, through set work, filming, editing, and post production, straight through to final product playing for me on my own computer. At every step, Al used clear and responsive communication to guide me to decisions that would lead to the highest possible quality product. "You're a well-respected author," he told me more than once. "This has got to be absolutely perfect." I contrast this with other videographers who would come to my events, do a video shoot, and hand me raw video on a thumb drive that I never knew what to do with. Never ONCE did Al leave me hanging, having to make decisions I don't feel qualified to make. He always took me to the next step I needed to make my project perfect. Now I have something that families gladly pay $199 to purchase, and I am proud of it. Whether you need instructional video, corporate video, outdoor/artsy video, or sales and commercial video, I suggest you talk to Al. If you live outside of Minnesota, I suggest you FLY here to work with him. Highest possible recommendation. Five stars.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I try to give the most reasonable price possible. What's important for me is the client receives value. The video and/or images are solid and will achieve their objective, while paying a fair price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Listen, listen, listen. Share my thoughts, listen to their reaction, then ask each other is this a good fit. If so, let's get to work, if not, then realize their is a better fit out there for both and move on to that. Listen I know this may be an unorthodox sentence in a "vendor" profile, but after more than 30 years in the business, it's my experience that this approach is a best practice for both customer and provider.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started my career in the broadcast news business, I was a videographer, editor, reporter, producer, and anchor. I capture images that convey emotion, information, and motivation. Throughout my career in PR, marketing and communications there was always the need to match visual information, whether moving or still, with an intent. Even a family portrait has an intent, who are these people at this time in their lives. That's what I attempt to do, capture that intent across my work in video and/or stills.
