We were very happy working with Albert Benichou at DeNoise and would highly recommend his services. Our company was making its first YouTube videos and Albert met with us at our office and understood right away the kind and level of videos we were after, making good suggestions about general structure and backgrounds; and approaching things simply, not complicating what we wanted to do. He provided a detailed list of what his quote included. Albert worked quietly, calmly and very competently, along with his helpful assistant Sandra, and kept things flowing well during filming, working effectively with all the video participants. Sandra worked with us until all the text additions were correct; and the final videos had many very nice, professional touches that Albert included. Prior to filming, we sent copies of the scripts we had rehearsed to Albert and Sandra so they were completely prepared when they arrived; and the seven videos were produced in a timely manner, according to the schedule we agreed on. We will be calling on Albert, Sandra, and DeNoise for our next round of YouTube videos.
Lawrence was on time, super friendly, and really wanted to make the video high quality and work for what I wanted. I will definitely contact him again for future training sessions that I need filmed!
Jeff did a great job of photographing our corporate event. He showed up on time, was very professional and was easy to work with. We had our pictures quickly as well. We would definitely use him again.
Diane provided commercial real estate photography for our company and was professional, prompt and gave us excellent quality photos. Would certainly hire again!
Ilja from ISDesigns was a pleasure to work with! Our company CEO was presenting with one of our main clients at a conference in SF Union Square (Sept. 2016) and we needed to turn the presentation into a video, and we needed it to show the presentation as well as a screen with a high-resolution version of the slides. From the start, Ilja was friendly, a good listener to our needs, and communicative about his process. He planned to set up ahead of time, and was good at improvising when something minor came up at the presentation that was out of his control. Ilja's post-production work was excellent! He really listened to my vision, kept our branding consistent and also made suggestions when he saw fit. I would not hesitate to hire him again next time we need his services in SF area. Thank you Ilja!
I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.
Charles did excellent video work on my project, adapting well to my needs as filming conditions changed. I would highly recommend Charles to anyone who has a video project. Sincerely, Dr. Bruce Elliott. Director, Horizon Studies
I hired Mark at Bicycle Ice Cream Films SF to create a video of my doctoral dissertation defense which was held on October 10, 2016. The audience included my dissertation committee members, fellow academic colleagues, and many friends and family members, about 25 guests in all. Working with Mark was a wonderful experience -- he is a true professional in both his craft as well as in how he works with clients. Mark is a proactive communicator, and we were able to do most of our planning via email and text which was great for me as I was preoccupied with preparing my defense presentation. Part of the planning included conducting a site visit of the classroom in which my defense was to be held, so that Mark could assess equipment needs and determine lighting and camera placement in advance. The site visit helped us prepare as we knew that there would be a class in session in the room on the day of my defense and we would not be able to gain access to the room to set up equipment until just 15 minutes prior. So Mark needed to be able to get in, get set up, and be ready to go in a very short period of time. He suggested, and I agreed, to bring in an assistant to help with this operation, at a very reasonable rate. This was factored into his final bid to me which was very reasonable for the work and time involved. On the day of the defense, Mark and his assistant arrived early, staged the equipment in the hall, and once we were able to enter the room, quickly got to work setting it all up. They had it all under control so I could focus on getting my projection equipment set up and my nerves settled before my presentation. Mark was unobtrusive in his filming, and he produced a good highlight reel that captured the essentials of my talk. He took still photos of the event as well, including the champagne reception after the defense after I was declared "Dr. Bauer". The event turned into a joyful celebration and Mark beautifully captured the spirit and the mood of everyone there on this important day. I was happy with all the material Mark produced and I plan to engage him to refine the video footage to create some compelling video material for my professional website. In short, I would like to highly recommend Mark P/Bicycle Ice Cream Films SF for professional/business or documentary production needs.
We hired Tatjana and Jonas to film our wedding video and it turned out absolutely perfect! We weren't originally going to have a videographer but we are so glad that we did! We told them which song we wanted to use and they did the rest. They showed up early the day of and they captured everything beautifully. They were so friendly and professional and we didn't even notice them filming throughout the day. They captured all the little details and all the special moments throughout the day. It is so fun to be able to watch the video and look back on our special day. Thank you so much for all the hard work into our video. We would definitely recommend working with Tatjana and Jonas for any videography needs!
Keida filmed my save the date video as well as my wedding. Both times he was professional and friendly, he made everything easy. I feel like he got a great, quick understanding of who my husband and I are and made sure to capture that in each of the videos. I can't imagine anyone better to work with.
Sean of Kurtela Video Productions was great to work with for our May 18 wedding. Before the big day, I talked to Sean about what we were looking for and the type of shots we wanted; he listened, asked great questions, offered wonderful advice, and really got a feel for us as a couple. I felt really comfortable with him from the start. On the wedding day, he showed up on time and set-up really quickly. He captured so many wonderful memories that we didn't even know he was there for. He was very professional and accomodating. I was running late on make-up and asked him to come back a little later because I wanted my eye make-up to be done. He was quick to offer filming the groomsmen then and coming back. And he came back right on time! And the groomsmen were so happy to get the extra time with them in their sunglasses. He worked well with our photographer as well, which was extremely important to us. And captured unbelievable shots! The best part was that he got our trailer to us so fast that he beat the site coordinator from posting photos on Facebook! That is how quick he was. We received our final video way before his due date too. If you have the opportunity to hire Sean as your videographer for your special occasion, I would recommend him completely.
I knew Jim was a pro camera man/editor right off the bat.Showed up early prepared during our rehearsal.Filmed our show and shot pictures while filming. 10 stars
Work on the video project itself hasn't started, but Stanford had a lot of red tape to go through before approving him for filming next week, and he was very prompt and thorough and cooperative. I also wrote to thank the other bidders for their quotes, and told them I had decided to go with another company. Best, John
Jim is a very organized and seasoned videographer. He has all of the equipment and knowledge needed to achieve the best footage. He filmed a corporate video for us and the process was painless, we really appreciated that. Great job Jim!
Rand was a pro throughout the project, and was able to produce great quality work with very little direction. I gave him general ideas of what we wanted, and he did the rest. Which worked perfectly for our resource limited team. Great filming, nice final video demo reel and speaker recordings. I would use him again.
Dennis was great to work with! We had a very aggressive timeline for the project and he was able to film and edit right away! Would highly recommend.
Being able to reflect back on the day that we committed our love to each other has been absolutely incredible thanks to you guys. We are stunned by the amount of thought that went into making sure that we would forever be able to remember all of the best parts of our wedding. There are things that we forgot even happened or reactions of loved ones that we didn’t get to witness in person, but thanks to Angel’s team we were able to watch them through the film. Go with them. The best video team in the area!
Joshua does Videography and Photography for my socialization program for kids, teens and adults with Autism. He documents events such our exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area and our Annual Film Premiere. The program is Autism Social Connection at Gatepath, and it teaches individuals with Autism how to make films, from scripting to acting, directing to editing. As a program in a non-profit agency, it is critical that we have documentation of our services. So Joshua's services help highlight the program's mission and accomplishments for outreach and donors. His videos and photos are polished. He also works closely with the program staff for the best experience for our individuals new things and changes can cause a lot of anxiety. Joshua is familiar with the demographic. He is easy to work with and respects confidentiality when it is necessary.
Jess was an absolute pleasure to work with. We planned an 18th birthday for my daughter. We booked videography, photography and photo booth services. He was very responsive to any questions we had. We were very happy with all of his services. Our guests enjoyed his photobooth. He was able to match our theme onto the photocards. We especially loved the video of our event. We would highly recommend him to anyone and look forward to many more events. Thank you Jess and 3007 films. Jennifer & Jenivieve Bermillo
Hands down one of ( if not the best) production team I've ever worked with. Worked with them on numerous projects as a extra to being the main feature. Their dilegent work ethic provides room for good communication on what needs to be. Adding on they are also highly organized with their time management skills , making each time we collaborated a smooth and enjoyable experience. Not to mention each of team members were extremely friendly and warm souls creating a comfortable and friendly work space. As a creative I would definetly recommend parallel films to anyone SERIOUS about pursuing their career. I feel they resource able to progress anyone willing to put in the work reciprocated.
Laura and Erica filmed a medical conference for my team in Connecticut. They came early every morning and their workflow was systematic and clean. We were extremely satisfied with The Vision Field.
