I'm looking for a videographer for my son's bar mitzvah.
Any recommendations for the east bay? thanks
I would recommend Evan Harrah who is a very talented
videographer. I know you would be very happy with his work.
Evan especially films Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. You can contact
him at 526.7248 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Evan's website is http://www.special-video.com/
I can recommend Evan Harrar of Special Event Video
I saw a wonderful video he did of a Bat Mitzvah. I was
impressed with the way he captured the highlights, edited it
and included a menu for ease-of-use. 510/526-7248 Lisa
I have a ton of video footage from home movies I have taken over the years. I would
really like to get it all edited and burned to DVDs and uploaded to the web so I can
distribute them as Christmas gifts. I want the end product to be more than just
tranferring footage to a different format; I would like to personalize it with music,
titles, and all the fancy editing techniques. Does anyone know of someone artistic and
tech savvy to do the job?
I've found the perfect person for you! I've been using a recent graduate to
edit all the hours of video I have of my daughter. She's been both transferring
everything to DVD, and also editing lovely clips that I've been posting online
and sending to relatives and friends. She also does fully edited videos. She's
great. The pieces are wonderfully edited, music, title cards. She's great, and
very affordable because she's just started her own business. I highly recommend
her. Her name is Lisa Ratner, website is www.MemoriesEdited.com, and her email
This is kind of a rush...I'm having a house concert on January
31st and I'm looking for someone to come and video the concert and
then give me a DVD. I'd like this person to be someone who knows
what they are doing, but not a full fledged (ie:expensive)
professional. Maybe a film student or someone who is really good
with a video camera. I'm able to pay but not the high prices of a
professional(we'll negotiate), nor do I need that quality. I just
want this as my personal souvineer and maybe to put on Youtube.
Any recs in a hurry are greatly appreciated. Thanks
Rapt Productions in Oakland offers start to finish video services:
documentation, editing, DVD authoring, etc. They shoot music, dance,
theater and opera - along with other non-arts corporate videos and
events. Prices are reasonable and live concerts are their specialty.
We are seeking recommendation/referal for our coming up August 8 wedding In
Walnut Creek for all of the above, photographer, videographer and a DJ. Also,
for a great bakery for a wedding cake. It's a small, low budget wedding, so
cost is a major consideration for hiring the professionals. However,
reliability and good product are equally important to us. Thanks
We were thrilled with our wedding vendors-- they're not dirt
cheap, but we saved a lot of money on them compared to some
high-end folks and the quality was great.
Lumitone productions (based in concord)-- they're young and
enthusiastic-- the video is great, but their real talent is the
really excellent editing they do, to music, etc. Highly
Hi. I would like to make a DVD with photographs of my dad set to
a few favorite songs that remind our family of him. Does anyone
know of a service that does this? Or does anyone know of
software that I could purchase that would allow me to do this
myself? Thank you in advance.
Berkeley Media Center on Addison and Milvia were great. I did the
exact same thing you are talking about two years ago and gave
this as Xmas gifts. They make as many copies as you need and they
provide you with a master.
Audio Visual Consultants is a professional, full-service studio,
and uses archival-grade DVD discs to enhance the audio and video
signals. Their work is excellent and prices reasonable.

I'm making a surprise movie for my parents' 40th wedding
anniversary, but I need a recommendation.
I am looking for a video production company that can edit
together for me video footage that I am shooting (of various
friends wishing them well, telling stories about them, etc.),
add photos and titles, possibly some voiceover and/or music and
movie clips. There are lots of places listed in the phone book,
but does anyone have experience with a person or company that
they are willing to share, either positive or negative? The
cost of this production will depend upon the number of hours
needed for editing, so efficiency and integrity count for a
lot. If there is a Parents Network subscriber who does this
sort of thing, I would love to hear from you!
we've had terrific experience with the East Bay Media Center on
Addison Street in Berkeley. They re-edited and dubbed new
music for a shlocky video that was done of our wedding some
years ago and -- just a few months ago -- put together a really
nice video for my in-laws' 50th anniversary from old photos and
home movie footage.
