I am a real estate broker and hired Reel Big Media to create an aerial video and still photos of a property located near the Bay. The video and photos came out great and I couldn't be more pleased. They came out very quickly (same day, in fact) and got me the video and photos within a day. Very professional and I would definitely recommend them. I will use them again in the future!

Thanks Ted. It always helps when the property is as nice as your listing was. Feel free to share the video online and we will share it with our network. Hope to work again soon! Ron

My roofing company inquired just a week before a big project we wanted to film, and Ron worked quickly to set us up with a great drone pilot. The pilot was very knowledgeable and transparent with what footage he was getting at every step of the process, and he even shared some drone tips with our salesmen! The video was edited and delivered in within the week of shooting, and we couldn't be happier with the quality. We're excited to continue working with Big Reel Media and can't recommend them enough!

Ron was a pleasure to work with! He responded very quickly, and his overall communication was both polite and efficient. On the day of the shoot, Ron arrived on time and we were able to film an awesome advertisement. We highly recommend Ron's services to anyone looking for a talented videographer that will provide high-quality work and a great overall experience.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    There really is no once-size-fits-all for video production. Each client's needs are usually different, so pricing reflects that. We aren't the cheapest company but we aren't the most expensive. We are a professional company with insurance, employees, etc. If you are looking for a college kid with a camera and a tripod, we aren't the right fit for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We like to hit the ball out of the park on every single project we take on. It's the main reason we have so many repeat customers. Our process is simple - we go over all pre-production issues, schedule a shoot date, shoot your project, transfer all files to, and then provide a working draft of your video within the agreed upon timeline.

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

    We all have B.A.s in Communications focusing in Advertising, Broadcast Journalism and Business. In addition our Aerial Drone Pilots are all licensed by the FAA and have completed the various steps to become Professional Pilots under the new ruling.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
