I ran for Mayor in 2003 because I was upset by the growing homeless problem. Andy and Angie at e-Image helped me produce a 10-minute video on three issues: Homelessness, Housing, and Public Transit. They walked me through every step of the process, from writing a script, to finding locations, through filming, voiceovers, editing, and reproduction. They set up at many sites around the City, including inside MUNI buses and trains. They set up studio backdrop for talking head segments. I was impress with their professional service, patience, and enthusiasm throughout. Angie even acted as a MUNI passenger asking me questions. Working with them educated me in the many steps of video production. Later in the campaign they helped produce a 30-second TV ad talking about my solution to the homeless problem. If I had a million dollars to spend and sent the DVD e-Image produced to every voter and MUNI rider, I might be mayor today. Alas, being elected to public office is more about how much money you have to spend rather than good solutions to problems. If you want to produce high quality video, on a timely basis, and at a reasonable price, I recommend Andy and Angie at e-Image. Jim Reid www.habitatforthehomeless.org
I called eIMAGE at the last minute to ask about a video shoot of my boss giving an introduction/speech. Angela, the producer and partner at eIMAGE was confident and helpful. She was able to walk me through the options and quickly bid the job at a very reasonable rate. She came to my office promptly the next day,along with Andy (the director/editor) and a sound person, Omid. They set up some serious lighting and sound equipment, and were able to capture the perfect setting. There was a great monitor to view the action and playbacks. The shoot went perfectly. They worked tirelessly to make the edits I wanted and added out logo and some titles. They put it on DVDs and personally delivered it to me -THE NEXT DAY! eIMAGE saved us and I couldn't recommend them more highly.
Our nonprofit has worked with eIMAGE on numerous occasions. This last assignment was a challenge: with just a 9-day lead time, we needed to produce a compelling fundraising video to debut to a crowd of 1,000+. Andy and Angie accommodated our schedule. They understood and honored our creative vision; maintained a collaborative, open-door policy throughout the editing process; and were attentive, detail-oriented, and professional at every step. The video they produced has already elicited donations and rave reviews, and has set a new standard in our organization. We look forward to the next project.
