Video production is an effective way to make your brand stand out. Most companies and brands often overlook the importance of a compelling video to attract prospective clients.

Picturelab is an award-winning video production company in San Francisco. We help companies harness the power of video marketing to create a unique business personality and boost brand awareness..

Picturelab: Who We Are and What We Do

With our 12 years of experience in the field, Picturelab is changing the landscape of video production in the San Francisco Bay Area. We create videos.  All kinds.  And they’re good, seriously good.  We create high-quality commercials and provide video production services that are effective at driving results and inspiring your audiences to act.
Our videos tell your story the way it needs to be told. Straight-up, dramatic, inspirational, funny, or way out-of-the-box from far left field. Sometimes we’re on a live-action set directing actors or interviewing CEOs and SMEs.  Sometimes we’re at our computers making amazing motion graphics and animation working on post-production.  No matter the industry or methods, we deliver results, whatever it takes.
Our skilled team of creative writers, directors, and editors will do all the work for you.  We’ll come up with the killer ideas, the treatments, the scripts, and then we’ll shoot and edit.   We are the all-in-one, full-service, creative video production company in San Francisco you’re looking for.

Our Brand

We do creative for a living – doesn’t get more awesome than that. Our creative team at Picturelab put their hearts and passion into our craft, delivering unique results for every brand and client. Yes, we like to have fun and make money while doing it.

Remember Transvideo Studios?  The largest video production company in Silicon Valley for years with the best sound stage north of Hollywood?  Yeah, that's us, minus the stage.  Picturelab was the creative agency of Transvideo Studios for years but then we accepted that we are Picturelab.  All of us.

We’re based in Mountain View, San Jose, Silicon Valley, and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but our video production and creative services go beyond that.  We create corporate videos for clients all over the world.

As a professional video production agency, Picturelab works with tech giants and startups.  We’ve also produced nifty videos and all types of products and services for financial tech, education tech, health care, and more.  Picturelab collaborates with brands, creative agencies, and marketing professionals to create high-quality commercials and brand video production.

Our extensive portfolio highlights our successes with our previous clients, such as Google, Facebook, Samsung, LinkedIn, PagerDuty, Mint, Box, Gong, Sift, New Relic, Thumbtrack, Synology, Personal Capital, Esignal, MobileIron, and more.

Our Process

In Picturelab, we value your resources and time. And while video production takes time, we want to make the process as smooth as possible for our clients. Through our four-step process, we identify your goals and help you turn this vision into reality.

Step 1: Discussing Clients' Vision and Goals

Before we even meet, we’ll do our homework and learn as much as we can about your product, audience and impact.  During our initial meetings, we’ll discuss in detail your brand, your goals, your vision, your idea of a perfect video.  From there, we’ll get to work.

Step 2: Coming up With Creative Concepts

Give us about a week and we’ll come back with ideas, recommendations, and some really deep life-changing wisdom. As a creative agency, it's also our job to show you endless concepts for your business needs. You’ll tell us what you think.  And then we’ll tell you what we think.  And we’ll keep cooking until it’s super-delicious for everyone.

Step 3: Shooting or Animating the Video

Once we have the winning concept and script, we’ll start production.  If it’s live action, we’ll cast actors, source locations, round up the crew and shoot the video.  The shoot usually takes a day or two for a 60-90 second video.  What’s special about our process is that every shot is customized to fit the brand and vision.  For this reason, we welcome our clients’ presence and input during the shoot. 

The process is similar for animation projects.  We present styleframes, animatics, voice talent selects and animated cuts to our clients at each milestone to make sure every frame serves the vision.  We love involving our clients at every stage of the process – no surprises.

Step 4: Post Production and Final Delivery

After the shoot, we enter post-production, which includes editing, graphics, audio mixes and color treatment.  Our goal is to deliver a final video that wows.  So we don’t count the number of revisions within each stage – we’ll do it until it’s right.  
When the video is approved, we’ll deliver the final video and if you want us to, we’ll help share it with the world. 


Why Great Video Production Matters

In today's content world, a great video connects with your future customers. Prospective customers are more likely to respond to an engaging video than any other content. Video marketing helps capture and captivate your targeted audience.

Through compelling video marketing, you can also boost your presence on social media. The more effective video you have out there, the greater the odds that customers like your content and come back for more. Whether it's help with post-production editing, solid creative storytelling, or promotional video, customers turn to YouTube and video to help find solutions for their problems.

Build Your Image

A professional video production company will help you provide the best first impression and show prospective customers what your product can do for them. High-quality content contributes to your brand's image and often serves as the first step a prospective customer takes in discovering your product. A high-quality video makes all the difference in bringing customers back for more.

Professionally produced videos increase the trust your audience has in your organization, which builds buyers’ confidence and helps form their intent. A positive outlook on your brand will help seal the deal and provide the opinion your customer needs.

Videos Promote Trust

Confidence building is as important to closing deals as having a great product. Effective marketing helps build trust in your brand, and high-quality video production can elevate this. It's no surprise that YouTube is the second most trusted resource for content after Google. And this is for good reason.

Consumers like videos that are relatable and relevant to their struggles. They see a face and someone who speaks to their problem directly. This already starts things off on the right foot and shows customers you have the answers to their questions.

Not all video production companies are created equal. With the importance of high-quality videos, it's also essential to find a trusted company that understands your brand.

We are more than just a professional corporate video production company. Through our effective commercials, compelling explainers, and engaging animated films, our team produces video content that helps our clients present solutions to modern-day problems.
