I had an amazing studio experience with Kyle. I hired him for a sound project for a school fundraiser and was blown away by his talent and professionalism. He went above and beyond in that he even helped me find a singer/artist for the project. The audio footage is amazing now I can’t wait to shoot the corresponding video. If you’re looking for a great studio experience I highly recommend him. I can’t wait to work with him again.

Ilja did a fantastic job with a rather complex set up for a professional 70th birthday party. He made the sound work on a site he'd never been at before, and managed to capture everything during a very busy event. Afterwards he put in the extra work to synchronous audio, video, and slides, plus footage from two cameras. He aims to please and I could not recommend him more highly. It was great to work with a local Berkeley vendor too.

Sean is amazing. He really knows his stuff, he has that artistic eye for those small details that make a difference in quality, and he works incredibly fast. I had what I thought was a difficult project because the audio and video were captured separately. It was all synced so beautifully and totally seamless that I completely forgot they were separate files. He was also extremely patient with my various picky requests and changes which I appreciate immensely because the final product brought tears to my eyes and everyone loved it. Thank you! Will definitely keep him in mind for future projects.

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.

Keida was so awesome and easy to work with! He did my wedding video and we were THRILLED. My sister and a couple close friends are in the video production business so they’re always extra critical with videos and they said they could not stop watching it over and over, they LOVED it so much! After I posted it to social media I even received several out-of-the-blue text messages from random people in my life saying how it made them cry, made them laugh, and it was absolutely beautiful! Keida is extremely responsive and on top of his work and is constantly weaving his passion for his work into how he makes his videos. There was some problems with how the microphone picked up my husbands vows and Keida went out of his way to send the audio to another professional (completely free of charge!) to have it cleaned up and perfected so that my video would be just that much more perfect. He even went out of his way to kindly suggest music that really captured the right vibe of the video and how the evening was- it was perfect!! Talk about reliving that day! Thank you so so much, Keida! I hired Keida off of thumbtack after reading other reviews so if you’re reading this, yes, this is a sign you should definitely inquire- it’s hard to find such an awesome, easy-to-work-with, hardworking, passionate-about-his-craft videographer these days, especially at his fair and amazing prices. Great experience, can’t say enough good things, thank you again Keida!

Ian exceeded expectations in the following ways: 1) Willing to go the extra mile. a. Right up front, while in the RFP stage he researched into our request for a specific format and shared his findings. It was obvious he had done more than a surface dive into the requested format. He came back with specifics including what the cost was for purchasing the software to be able to deliver the videos in the specialized format. The cost of the software was prohibitive for him to purchase independent of our paying for it, but he gave additional technical information to help us troubleshoot through the process of how to make things work on our end. b. The first session included some technical difficulties, and so he also videotaped the last session on day 2, which was a repeat of the first session. His motivation was in wanting to deliver a quality product. 2) Flexible a. There was little time between my first contacting him and the job starting. We could not be flexible on the dates and so he made changes in his schedule. b. There were changes on our side of the equation on multiple levels and he accommodated without issue. c. Extremely accommodating about payment and followed up when he did receive payment. 3) He delivered exactly what he promised. a. Quality of the audio/video and editing was great b. He delivered on time c. He communicated updates along the way. 4) Very easy to work and communicate a. He was always pleasant and respectful in every communication and throughout the 2-days of videotaping. b. He was very approachable and quick to respond to requests and communications. Bottom line His bid was not the cheapest or the most expensive that came in, but he was the most helpful and consistently responsive to communications. I could tell by the questions he asked and how he asked them that he had passion for what he does and it is not just a job to make money. What is important to him is delivering the highest quality product. would not hesitate in the future to work with him again for similar needs. highest recommends

Jacob has been Awesome! I came to him with the intent to build a solid foundation, an understanding of music and its theories. I had played around with the guitar for years but had always found myself at a dead end road; lacking structure and direction to improving my playing and my knowledge of the guitar. It's very easy to be impressed with Jacob's musical ability; he seems very accomplished and well versed in many styles of guitar playing, but I have been just as impressed with his gift in the art of teaching! He has the ability to take difficult concepts in music and break them down to very usable and tangible information; for my sake. He is very creative in his teaching methods, offers a variety of learning modalities (video demos, phone apps, audio tools), and very flexible in catering to specific learning styles. Our lessons our very well balanced with structure, accountability, professionalism and lots of character and personality. Jake has been the catalyst in removing those dead ends in the road for me. He has help to reignite my passion for playing the guitar and has also helped me find a new passion in learning music theory. At the end of the day you truly feel that Jacob really cares about your personal journey to becoming a better musician and that he truly wants to be apart of that journey.

Ben has done an outstanding job on recording and editing an audio book with a business focus. This was no small task because the content was part straight-read and part instructional and part...hmmm -- not sure what to call it. Essentially, the style had to be markedly different for three sections. Ben "got" that right away and provided excellent, clear guidance. Ben's work was swift, professional, and supportive. He also made the process easy and is fun to hang out with -- yet another plus when working on tough content. The result is an outstanding product at a very fair price. I highly recommend Petting Zoo Studio and will use their services again.

My husband and I had a great experience working with John at our wedding. The sound quality of the video turned out great (which I was worried about with an outdoor wedding) and he captured all the special moments. He had the complete edited video ready for us within a week of the wedding! Plus, he is a great value for what you get. Would definitely recommend him!

Recently, Jippidy.com made two videos for my spa business. Their team members, particularly, Julian Martinez, George, Chris Videographer and all others who worked behind the curtain did excellent work for me. They coordinated video shoot, audio, script, music and everything very nicely, smoothly and friendly. I and my family and customers are very glad to see the videos. I sincerely appreciate their great job and cooperation. I will certainly take their help in near future. Thanks alot to Jippidy and their team.
