Crushpix Video Production Company
San Francisco-based Crushpix Video Production Company partners with our clients to provide a full set of creative services beginning with pre-production, brainstorming, and logistical planning. We arrange casting when needed. We secure studio space and locations for the shoot. We provide service. We’re here to make your life easier. And we like to have fun.
Our videograhers and crew are normally the same team you’ve been working with throughout the project, providing the video services to transform your idea into a beautiful and compelling video. Crushpix is made up of a lean but talented group. 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.
Over the last decade, we’ve formed trusted 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.
Because we shoot in high-quality HD and 4K, the finished video is robust enough for live presentations but can also be compressed for mobile delivery. We don’t recommend compressing videos to a size that’s small enough for email. The simple solution is to load the video either onto your internal servers or host it on YouTube or Vimeo and simply email a link.
We specialize in professional corporate video production 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.
With offices in Emeryville, we are the preferred choice for many East Bay and South Bay companies that incorporate video into their marketing strategy. Our video producers and video crews travel across the country throughout the year in order to provide consistency within a video project. Our clients who we’ve had long relationships with know us and trust our videographers to capture the footage that will promote their brand.
Video on your website can tell your story and show what you do best. Video can potentially improve your search ranking, making your company more visible to potential new clients.
If you’re thinking about adding a professional video to your company website, Crushpix Video Production Company is happy to be your guide through uncharted territory. To help you chose the video partner that’s the best fit for your team, we share our years of experience to offer strategies to help you achieve the scope of the project within a realistic budget.

“I can’t say enough good things about Crushpix! Their attention to detail and commitment to producing solid work is unparalleled. I know when we get challenging project thrown at us, I can count on them to do what it takes to get it done. Outstanding service!”
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 the 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 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.
Crushpix is a diversity-owned, minority-owned and veteran-owned California company serving the San Francisco Bay Area, East Bay, San Jose, Silicon Valley, Napa Valley, and Sacramento.
Working With Your Team
We ask our potential clients to share some videos with us that have the look and feel of what they’d like for your own video. 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. Often, we develop a storyboard that shows visuals on one side with audio on the other. Developing a storyboard can help save time and money.
Whether you’re watching tv, a movie, or an Internet video, viewers are accustomed to seeing a new image in a video every two or three seconds. Extended shots where nothing happens can make your video feel dull. We strive to keep your viewers interested in the content, so planning out what images and how many we will capture before we shoot is key to a successful production.
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. Foreign-language voiceovers are also available.

“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.”
