  • 5/5 stars Event Videography Verified Review

    Ed was wonderful. He was timely, supportive and very nice to deal with. Having my mom's celebration of life on disc brings me comfort.

    Very professional, punctual and good follow through. Extremely please so far. Still have editing to complete, but expect the same level of professionalism.
    I would recommend Ed's work for any occasion.

  • 4/5 stars Video Filming Verified Review

    Ed was very accommodating and punctual. His employees were courteous and very professional. He provided the end result as we agreed. There were a couple glitches, but that's to be expected with a live event and Ed handled them swiftly and with the best solution.

  • 5/5 stars

    Ed has filmed and live streamed a couple of events for us now, and he has done a beautiful job on all of them. He is extremely professional and cares deeply for making sure that we have a perfect final product and has gone out of his way to meet deadlines and customer requirements. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone, and I look forward to working with him again.

  • 5/5 stars

    I had the opportunity to hire Ed and his EMA Productions to broadcast a locally produced live production to a high profile hospital in the NW. Throughout the experience Ed exhibited consistent professionalism, knowledge of his craft and was, without a doubt, crucial to our project’s success.

    If you are looking for a broadcast professional who is easy to work with and can bring invaluable experience to a project, I wholeheartedly recommend Ed Mellnick and his competent crew of professionals. Together, they helped us make our broadcast better than we ever thought it could be while still delivering on time and on budget.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. We go to NAB every year to stay up on the latest equipment and techniques.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. Every job is different. Does a day of shooting happen in one place or is it a dozen set ups. Do we need a crew of three or four or can it be shot with one videographer?
Are there sound issues that need to be taken into consideration? What are the Lighting needs? The length of the finished work effects the time it takes to edit.
Is there a script? It is best to sit down and get the whole picture so we can quote the project correctly.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. Been born a broadcaster. With both technical and creative background I found the electronic medium of video very rewarding.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Shooting interveiws for web sites
Recording and Streaming conferences and other events
Authoring and Duplicating DVDs

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. I enjoy helping others make their dream a reality. Recently helped a county create an informational video on proper recycling for their web site.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Many lower end videographers are just editing your content on their laptop. Here at EMA we have more robust editing capabilities and always invite the client to sit and help make the important edit decisions.

Look for seasoned pros who have kept their overhead down so they can be competitively priced.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Most dont realize how much time editing takes nor do they appreciate the cost of high quality equipment.
