Our video producers work with clients throughout the Bay Area, providing the video crew, videographers and video editors to transform your idea into a beautiful and compelling story that conveys a clear message to your audience.
Crushpix is made up of a lean but talented group at its core, but over the years, has teamed up with a much larger group of trusted freelancers around the country who allow us to expand to fill the needs of most every production, no matter the size. Our efficiency translates into savings which we’re able to pass on to our clients. Crushpix is considered by many to be one of the best video production companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Video on your website tells the story about who you are and what you do best. Adding video to your site will SHOW your products and how they work. Video can potentially improve your search ranking, making your company more visible to potential new clients.
We specialize in professional corporate video production and company videos including training videos for staff as well as for customers, how-to videos, interviews, testimonial videos used to promote a company’s reputation, corporate culture videos, and TV ads. We also produce promotional advertising videos designed to show goods and services on corporate websites across the Internet.
Working With Your Team
The best way for us all to get on the same page in terms of what our clients are interested in is for both of us to share some videos we’ve seen that seem to have the look and feel of the video we’re discussing. That gives us all a starting point for discussions on style and budget.
During pre-production, we plan the shots and develop a script with you that will tell your story, engage your audience, and effectively deliver your message. Often, we develop a storyboard that shows visuals on one side with audio on the other which normally helps save time and money.
When watching tv, a movie, or an Internet video, you’re probably looking at a new image every one or three seconds. Extended shots where nothing happens can make your video feel dull. To keep your audience watching, the visual content has to be interesting and relevant, so planning out what images and how many we will capture before we shoot is key to a successful production as well as your budget.
At Crushpix, we work hard to insure good communication with our clients and thorough planning with our team.
Get The Most From Your Investment
To repurpose your video for a global market, we offer translations and captions in Spanish, Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese and many more languages. We also provide closed captioning and open captioning for hearing-impaired audiences as well as for delivery to platforms such as Facebook where the audio is turned off by default. Foreign-language voiceovers are also available.

We Love What We Do
Many of the projects we produce are 90 – 120 second marketing videos that grab the audience and deliver a message. The viewer sees the products and how it works. They hear directly from the leaders of the business about the services they provide. That humanizes and personalizes the products and services that are being marketed.
Since attention spans are short, most of our clients find that rather than making one long video that contains everything about a company (if the viewer watches your company video all the way to the end), it’s often more effective to create a number of smaller focused videos that address specific topics.
From a budget perspective, pricing has a relationship to the overall length of the video. So, four 30-second videos will generally cost the same as one 2-minute video, provided they contain the same content. However, in most cases, twice as much labor is required to produce a 4-minute video as a 2-minute video and that’s reflected in the overall video production cost.
We also produce much longer videos, but those are more often coverage of a live event or sometimes a procedural video that goes through a number of steps. Because of their length, to keep costs down, we tend to simplify the production and editing in comparison with a 60-second promotional video. They’re still good-looking professional videos, but without all the razzle dazzle of a sales video.
These longer videos, including instructional videos, are more manageable when they are presented to the viewer as individual modules. These modules can be assembled into a playlist on a YouTube channel, for example. This way, the viewer can watch at their own pace.
