we know that video means business
Urban Reel was founded because we know video means business. We work closely with our clients using video to solve any problems they may have. In essence this is the core of what we are. By creating strategic partnerships with our vendors we are able to deliver compelling video content that executes our clients’ vision with the maximum in cost efficiency.
Our experience allows us to provide creative solutions to meet your needs regardless of the budget. Because technology changes at such a high speed customers need a down to earth straight forward company to help them navigate through the ever challenging world of video. This is where we shine, creating and maintaining partnerships with our clients so they never have to feel alone when any video needs should arise. We strive to make the whole production experience fun. It’s the reason we’re here because to us video is more than a profession, it’s a passion.
full service video production & post production
We believe that extra time spent planning out the project will save a lot of headache and financial overhead in the long run. Our pre-production services include meetings with our clients to understand their project’s needs and free creative brainstorming to help develop ideas into scripted form. We work closely with our crew and editors to draw out best practices before capturing video and editing.
In production we assemble our team of industry professionals to bring ideas and visions from pre-production to life. Our crew members are highly experienced, working in the digital media industry for many years. The client is always encouraged to be on set, giving valuable input and ultimately signing off on the footage we have captured. No matter what is required for your video the reel team is ready to make it happen.
Post production may be as simple as piecing together an interview or as complicated as building a video environment with a mix of live action and animation. Our staff is made up of expert editors, animators, 3D modelers, sound designers and musicians who are passionate about doing their part in building your dream. Through hard work, creative passion, and the ability to understand the clients vision, we pride ourselves on delivering not only high quality professional video, but video that delivers your message.
Jason first became interested in the video and film industry in the late 90’s. At the time he was working as a film extra for major motion pictures and became very interested in the process itself. After graduating from San Francisco state with a degree in broadcasting, Jason began his career as a camera man working on a foreign film that was mostly shot in the San Francisco Bay Area. Soon after his film experience, Jason started working at a digital video agency as a producer. Through this experience, Jason envisioned a company that specialized in creating compelling video, for business. It is this vision and drive that puts UrbanReel at the forefront of the digital evolution.

After realizing genetics and a overall lack of athletic ability probably won’t allow him to play shortstop for the A’s or run point for the Warriors, Daniel followed his second passion, starting his career in post-production video.

His attention to detail and natural creativity make Daniel the man for the job as our Head of post-production.
whats happening now
It was a few weeks back when Cliff Englert of Iron Creative reached out to us to discuss partnering to create a new breed of CreativeMornings here in San Francisco. To start let me provide some background. In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone. Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also [...]Read More
