Crushpix Video Production Company

Crushpix is a creative Bay Area video production company serving San Francisco, Oakland and the East Bay, San Jose, Silicon Valley, and Sacramento.

Crushpix Video Production Company is a top video content provider for companies from large corporations like Google to small and medium-sized local businesses, creating internal and externally-facing videos such as Product Videos, Marketing Videos, Training Videos, Recruiting Videos, Corporate Culture, Recruiting, Onboarding, Event Promotions, Sizzle Videos, industrial films and more.

Most videos include video interviews and/or video testimonialsproduct demonstrations and b-roll of our clients as they create the products and services we hear them talk about. Additionally, we produce online instruction, how to videos, live event coverage and TV commercials.

Our videographers use professional HD and 4K video cameras to make sure you and your products look great. We have large and small crews and are able to accommodate a variety of budgets. Budgets vary according to a number of things such as whether the video is going to be for an external audience for promotional purposes or for an internal audience for informational and training purposes. Other factors include whether our clients provide talent from their pool of employees and the locations we’ll shoot at or whether we need to cast actors and pay for locations.

Crushpix offers full service video production including video crews, lighting and audio, as well as video editors, motion graphics and animation. We enjoy transforming simple interviews and promotional videos into enjoyable and engaging experiences that educate and delight your audiences.

In pre-production, we work with our clients to define the message and takeaway for each video and suggest a call to action. We can provide casting, locations, secure a stage, or bring our production services to your office. If you are new to video production, we are here to guide you through the entire process. At Crushpix, we want to make your video production experience as easy as possible.

These include interviews, testimonials, and b-roll. We supplied videos to Google for their booth for two years, shot with a small crew across the US.

What We Deliver

Because we shoot in high-quality HD and 4K, the finished video is robust enough for live presentations but can also be optimized for mobile phones. We don’t recommend compressing videos to a size that’s small enough to attach in an email. Video files are large, so depending on the length of your video, reducing it to be less than 10MB for an email blast will probably degrade it too much. The simple solution is to load the video either onto your internal servers or host it on YouTube or Vimeo then email the link.

Our Clients

Over the last decade, we’ve formed loyal partnerships with notable Bay Area businesses like The Clorox Company (Oakland), Kaiser Permanente (Oakland), Google (Mountain View) and East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) (Oakland). As a full-service SF video production company, we offer end-to-end video production experience, customized for your unique business and clients, from script development and planning through casting, lighting, shooting, editing, and delivery for web video on our clients’ websites, e-commerce sites like Amazon, Grainger, and Costco.com, and social media like YouTube and Facebook.

This promotional video for the Concord franchise of Floor Coverings International received very positive attention from the national corporate offices. They are now using videos produced by Crushpix for their branches across the country.

Our Company

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.

This recruiting video for a local franchise of Floor Coverings International was so well received by the client that they sent it to the Corporate Offices. The head executives have decided to make this their official recruiting video for the whole company.

Promo Sizzle Video for a 2019 event. We shot this with a two-person crew, capturing the event for two days and posting the edited footage to the client. The footage was then reused to promote next year’s event.

Client Testimonial

“I’ve worked on a couple of projects led by David at CrushPix and my experience has been nothing short of extraordinary. We approached them during each project with seemingly impossible asks- in terms of turn around time, budget, logistics- and all were greeted with a can-do attitude. As production director for an agency in Miami, hiring someone across the country is something I always dread doing but David and Rob became an extension of our family and worked tirelessly and diligently to please us and our clients.

Never for one moment did I feel that my projects were not of utmost importance and a priority when they needed to be, which is an invaluable feeling. I would not hesitate for one moment to recommend CrushPix as a video production company to not only shoot video but to shoot photography and work all the way through the post-production process. They have done all of this for us and given us a valuable partner to leverage in the future.”
