I am so happy I decided to have a videographer to film my special day but even happier it was ISDesigns Studio. Ilja did SUCH an amazing job with my 60th birthday video. I’ve watched it over and over and over again! The day of the party was so hectic, and I knew there was a bunch of traffic getting to our venue (downtown Berkeley UC Campus), but Ilja was there RIGHT on time, and ready to go! He was on top of everything, and filmed all the key parts, and even more creative shots that I would never have even thought of. He was very professional and so nice, and everyone in my birthday party had nothing but good things to say about him. I would DEFINITELY recommend Ilja for any event. AWESOME! Thank you so much Ilja for making my special day a memory to last forever. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Gwendolyn B.Dec 3, 2018Verified
Working with IS Design Studios was great! Couldn't recommend this company more.Nov 19, 2018Verified
I highly recommend Ilja from ISDesigns Studio. He is a great videographer, followed my vision for the PSA piece and was incredibly professional. He completed the entire video within a few days - was a great experience. The final video was great! If you work with Ilja, you will be very pleased!Oct 14, 2018Verified
Still editing but didn't want to miss a review. Ilja is a great person and really gave my band an excellent deal on a promo video. He is a very detailed director and expects only excellence from himself. I admire him also because he want above and beyond the call of duty for us and was a pleasure to work with.Jun 26, 2018Verified

- 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.
