About this pro

How does your business stand out?

S13 Films separates itself from others by having a detailed consultation session prior to your event date. Every aspect of the event will be discussed and compiled with the client's aesthetic preferences, absolutes and music styles. Your video is a big investment and should have no surprises in the final product. Also, because our video is an investment, unlike our competition, we make every effort to deliver your final product in a reasonable timeframe so you can enjoy with your family and friends.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

There are only a few things that stay with us throughout a lifetime: memories are the most precious. But over time, some memories become a distant image that has lost shape or has changed into something completely different. Capturing these moments with an honest and pure approach is the only way to accurately relive things from the past. This is what I love about my job - capturing candid and unscripted moments to truly bring your memories to life. This is our philosophy.

    I highly recommend S13 Films!! I absolutely loved working with Sarkis for my wedding day. His professionalism and attentiveness is unmatched. He is extremely kind and knowledgeable. He even helped with ironing my shirt! When time comes, I will definitely hire S13 again.

    I found S13films through this website, I strictly based my decision on using him and his crew from these reviews - and let me tell you I am glad I did! Overall very reasonable price, for great quality (high resolution) film. I had Sarkis and his team film my band at one of our live concerts. We are from Seattle, so not meeting before the event was no problem. We kept in touch via email and phone. I basically wasn't too sure what to expect, I mainly wanted a multi camera shot footage of our concert. He did just that plus more. I will probably hire him again when we in Hollywood again. Bottom line is, I wasn't expecting the final product to be as sharp and exciting as it is! Great work!

    Sarkis filmed our wedding June 6th 2015 and we honestly could not be happier with our choice! Sarkis stayed in contact throughout the planning process and was so easy to reach. He captured our day beautifully without interrupting our ceremony at all. Everything was so candid and warm. He captured absolutely everything I mentioned wanting and WAY more. Our video arrived packaged beautifully and we receive NUMEROUS compliments on it. I would recommend him to anyone for any possible occasion. I seriously adore the video, and him for everything he did to make my experience with his company flawless.

    One of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding! We weren't planning on having a videographer, but last minute we decided we would probably regret it if we didn't. Sarkis was so accommodating with such short notice! We had a conversation over the phone and explained what we wanted, and he delivered. We just got our DVD in the mail and basically got to relive the ceremony all over again! We wish we had him stay longer, but at least we captured the most important part of the day. The way he put it all together was so perfect and we are so thankful!! If you are looking for someone to capture your wedding day, you've found the guy to do it!

    We were comparing prices and came across Sarkis and his company and saw right away that the other folks in Glendale were ripping us off with their pricing. Sarkis offered us a full package and at a fraction of the price of the others. Aside from pricing, Sarkis treated us with respect and wanted to make sure that the video would come out exactly how we wanted it too. No pressure. He didn't "tell" how the video was gonna be, he asked us how WE wanted it. Oh and we got our video back in two months time with packaging that mirrored our wedding theme. Highly recommended

    We hired Sarkis and his team for our wedding video and it was the best decision and best return on our investment. We went back and forth on whether or not to spend money on a videographer but after speaking with Sarkis and what he had to offer, we decided to hire. He was super professional and they created our video based on what we wanted. They didn't get in the way and and were totally flexible. If you're looking for a videographer that will keep it real and is super professional, spend the extra money and hire Sarkis.

    Hired Sarkis to do our engagement party in October and couldn't have been happier with the results. When I reached out to him, we promptly set up a face-to-face meeting so that my fiancee and I could lay out our ideas. Without hesitation, he was on board and confirmed he could do what we asked. Two months later and we have our engagement video in our hands. The picture quality? Immaculate. The cuts and song choices? Perfect. He tailored his ability to our needs, rather than the other way around. I didn't expect such a quick turnaround, seeing as how some friends of mine in the Glendale area have been waiting for their wedding film for almost a year now. Not only do we have a Blu-Ray version, but we also have a version he compressed for our phones so we can show anybody at any time. We've already hired him to do our wedding and we don't even have a date yet!

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
We do weddings, celebrations, events, promotional and commercial videos, announcement videos, video transfer services, or any other videography service you may need. We are a one-stop-shop for any type of video production need.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't 'cheap out' on your video. S13 Films has fair packages for all event videography. Capturing these moments are priceless. Many people opt to spend their money on photography (which is fine) but photos are just photos. You can't fully capture everyone's emotions at your event the same way you would if you had video.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I attended filmmaking courses at UCLA and graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a bachelors degree in Film & Digital Media. Several of our films were admitted to film festivals where we received high praise for our technical and story telling abilities. Customer service is my specialty and with the client's specific needs my priority, I am committed to client satisfaction and I hold myself to the highest standards. S13 Films caters to the Videography needs of the Los Angeles and Fresno communities but also travels across the state of California and to Las Vegas, Nevada. S13 Films was launched in 2013. We have over 14 years of videography and video production experience.
