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.
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.
the reel crew
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.
head of production
Graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in Video Production, David entered the workforce as a freelance video production assistant. His passion and dedication to camera work coupled with his snowballing production experience and skill began landing him jobs as director of photography, director, and producer for many highly respected production agencies in the Bay Area. David’s comprehensive understanding of the production process and fun energetic attitude make him a great fit here at UrbanReel as our Head of Production.
head of post-production
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. After years serving as a Video Editor and Motion Graphics Artist for clients such as Google, Sprint, Intel, Circulon, Sephora, 2K Sports, and Monster, Daniel joined the team at UrbanReel. His attention to detail and natural creativity make Daniel the man for the job as our Head of post-production.
video editor and sound designer
Currently with blue and purple hair (subject to change with the seasons), Katie edits videos and does sound design. When she’s out of the dark, editing Bat-cave, she likes to watch Adventure Time, rock climb, and eat gluten free cupcakes. “My raid will destroy yours any day; Go Grimlock, go.” – Katie
what's happening now
A couple weeks ago, Urbanreel headed downtown to start a beautiful project… literally! Urbanreel teamed up with beauty product giant Sephora for a three-day shoot highlighting the “Sephora Colletion” products. Shooting for Sephora and having a lot of men on the team made for a great learning experience for the crew. Everyone walked away with tons of beauty knowledge. The Sephora team graciously educated our crew on beauty basics like the difference between a blush brush, or an eyeshadow brush. To ensure flawless make-up for the on screen talent Sephora brought in a couple of their “Sephora Trainers”. They described the extremely challenging path and rigorous exam one must complete to achieve the coveted title of a [...]Read More
