Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Marketing has become a very personal undertaking, as social media integrated itself into everyone’s daily lives. This is why I love focusing on story driven media with strong educational and entertaining elements, which are more likely to resonate in a young, professional audience. I work closely and directly with my clients from start to finish. No outsourcing or assigning someone to shoot and someone else to edit the project. This way I’m as much involved, and as close to the project as my client is. No mixed up messages, nothing lost in translation. I encourage my clients to integrate personal experiences or anecdotes into their projects where applicable. Show your human side and let potential customers connect with you and your story. Serving clients from corporate levels, small businesses and startups alike, I have happy customers in the continental US, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, China and India. Even individuals like you and me will find affordable, but more importantly, effective video services with ISDesigns. Having been in business for over 12 years, I know what drives powerful media that engages and connects to your audience. Create brand awareness across all your social media platforms with updated, fresh materials for a young and evolved market. Try your next round-table discussions in 360˚ VR media. Or cover your event in 4K. ISDesigns - Your Business, Your Product. Yourself. Quite frankly, there is nothing more fulfilling to me than being creative. And sharing this creativity with my clients who are equally enthusiastic and excited about their unique projects is the absolute highlight of my work-day. It is delightful to work with such a diversity of individuals of different backgrounds, cultures and life styles. It's the daily exchange of ideas and exercise in critical thinking that allows the projects I produce to grow and evolve.

Video Production

Working with Ilja was terrific experience. He found the perfect venue for my Ted Talk, no mean feat during Covid. Goes the extra mile. Would definitely use him again.

I couldn't have been happier about my collaboration with Ilja. He was genuinely excited about my project, and went above & beyond in making our video amazing. He used multiple types of cameras, incorporated all my feedback, and brought an amazing amount of attention to detail - working diligently on minor things I didn't even notice. He was super innovative in filming our closing "FX" shot, and kept the whole project within our agreed upon budget. I would welcome the chance to work with him again.

I would have clicked on all five qualities and included Value and Punctuality! Ilja was always early waiting for us to arrive. LOVED working with Ilja and would absolutely work with him again! Highly skilled technically, honest and timely as well as a warm and confident people person. From the first conversations to the last edits, Ilja instilled a sense of confidence, competence and calm. He was a joy to work with and related well to our diverse team of over 10 collaborators. Our first project was a tightly scripted set of 10 bilingual in Spanish instructional videos and it was a tedious process at times but Ilja was patient and thorough, delivering on time and on budget. We enjoyed working with Ilja so much we contracted with him on a second project of five testimonial videos. He guided us through this process since these were less structured more interview style which required extensive creative editing. Ilja painstakingly worked with us in crafting the storylines through his skillful editing. Not only is Ilja fantastic with the camera he’s a magician in post production. Ilja was fully committed to the projects and delivered quality end products that everyone was extremely happy with.

Ilja walked me through the steps, helped me develop the story for a crowdfunding video and did an amazing job. Everyone that contributed to the video enjoyed working with him, as did i!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    ISDesigns produces customized video projects that are designed to meet your specific needs. While for a lot of projects I can apply an umbrella price, many projects are unique, require different types of equipment and a different approach to develop a strategy. The typical question "How much does a 1-2 minute video cost?" will give you a quote range that's not helpful. "How much does a car cost? Or a house?" Don't compare the numbers, look at the building blocks and the content. Often I can adjust my initial quote, once we've discussed the project in more detail.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every customer has a unique set of desires and goals for their project, may it be video, photos or motion graphics. This is what makes my job so fascinating and fun. I usually collect as much information as I can about the customer's project, so that I can give an accurate customized quote. If the customer agrees with the above, we exchange contact information so that I can setup a customer account which later helps with communication, agreements and invoices. We then proceed to develop a strategy for production and post production before the hands-on work begins.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a professionally trained videographer, editor and filmmaker. I studied video and multimedia at Berkeley, CA. Every professional in the field has to stay on top of things. Especially in the fast paced digital media world, where new equipment and software is being introduced almost on a daily basis. One cannot rest. You take a break, you fall behind. Attending seminars and networking events to collaborate and learn the latest trends is an important factor in my business.
