    I was very pleased with Ilya's videography services recording my conference speech and editing the video into a finished product.

About this pro

Marketing has become a very personal undertaking, as social media integrated itself into everyone’s daily lives. That’s why at ISDesigns I focus on story driven media with strong educational and entertaining elements, which are more likely to connect with a young 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), so that 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 backgrounds into their projects where applicable. This allows you to show your approachable, human side to your audience and new potential customers. 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 nearly 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. • Advertisement • Business Profiles • Product Overviews • Educational Programs Conferences and Panels • Special Event Coverage • Crowdfunding Media 360 Degree Media • Anything in-between... 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 enlightening to work with such a variety 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.

    Q & A

    • 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.
