My videos have over 1 million views on YouTube and Vimeo (more on broadcast TV.) I have 2 EMMYs. The range of topics I've produced cut across almost every imaginable area from pop culture to nano-technology. Specialties include performance and the arts. corporate image work and medical and technology subjects. I bring to every project –however complex the subject –vivid, compelling and original storytelling –engaging the viewer with strong visual impact, emotional force, original writing –and humor when appropriate. I work a great deal with graphics and animation to visualize concepts. Shoot in HD, RAW, 4K; working with the highest quality equipment, I own Blackmagic P4K cameras and use RED and SONY cameras, cine-lenses, Sachtler tripods, Letus Helix gimbal for larger cameras, Sound Devices audio recorder and various mics as well as LED and HMI lights.

We hired this company to video record an important program on campus. This company worked seamlessly with campus technicians, who ordinarily video record these type of functions. Took constructive criticism well and made adjustments to wording on video drafts upon request. Worked in partnership with university AV techs to make sure sound quality in video was top notch. Added a nice touch on the video by placing the university logo as a "bug" for a more intimate, proprietary feel. The quality of the finished product was very stellar. Would indeed hire again.

Arts Into Production - Mr. Howard Silver did an EXCELLENT job. He far exceeded my expectations. His complete handling of my event was totally professional. He moved seamlessly throughout the event videotaping without people really noticing his presence. His video equipment is the "State of the Art" as I was able to sit with Howard as we edited the final end product and was provided with DVD's, a YouTube version and a TV production-type Hard Drive that capture my event of the Salem UMC of NYC, Women's Day Service and Luncheon - Oct. 23, 2016. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Howard Silver and Arts Into Production for your next videotaping event. Wendell Harris WHarris & Assoc, LLC

It's been great getting to work with Howard. He produced a video recording of an arts lecture and it turned out excellent. He was able to combine an audio recording, two video recordings, and slides into a single coherent video that was easily quite engaging. He was professional, communicative, and we would happily work with him again.

Howard was extremely responsive throughout the process and grasped my concept for the video and photo editing with music and successfully brought my idea to life. The output and work quality was spectacular. I highly recommend Howard and will not hesitate to engage him on my future projects. Thanks Howard!

We made a last minute decision to make a multi-camera (3) HD Video of the final USA Tour performance in NYC of a new Cuban Act called The Habana Boys. After a brief internet search, I found a list of several NYC-based videographers who specialize in working with the arts. This show involves singing in multiple genres, choreography, and live musicians. I sent a mass email out and not only was Howard Silver's Arts Into Production the first response, the fee he was proposing was 1/2 of some, and only matched by one of 9 other responses we received within the next 24 hours, and after we already agreed with Howard. Turns out if was an excellent decision. Howard is so responsive that he shared the first 10 minutes of the edited footage by Midnight following a matinee performance, and we had the full 90 minute video within 5 days (A day sooner than promised). About the shoot: the angles he chose, and the way he edited the footage, makes it possible for us to market this new production more professionally, and we are confident that the modest expense will pay for itself in terms of increased interest, and possibly generating increased fees as presenting organizations will immediately recognize that they will have a better tool to market the show themselves. Please do not hesitate to call, or email me for further clarification. Sincerely, Eric Amada Arts Management Associates 267.738.0000 (West Coast) eric@ama.bz
