Video Production Testimonials

With over 35+ years of experience, we’ve received stacks of video production testimonials. Just check out our extensive list of rave reviews.

Our satisfied clients come from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world. Most of our clients over the years have given us video production testimonials because we have developed a close collaborative relationship.

Interestingly, we often find that in the high-turnover employment environment of Silicon Valley, clients move on to other companies and hire us at their new job.

That’s our kind of video production testimonial!

Video Production testimonial

However, in this era of digital video, we sometimes never personally meet the video production clients for whom we work.

Often, when a distant client needs some video footage shot in Northern California, they look for an experienced and easy-to-work-with video production company.

Naturally, they call on Penrose Productions. Maybe it’s our video portfolio or our guarantee. It could be the many awards or extensive customer list. Maybe it is a combination of those factors.

These out-of-town clients hire us to shoot video in our area and upload it to them for editing (in most cases). This saves the clients lots of money for travel.

But whether you are near to us or far, we know that after you hire Penrose Productions, it won’t be long before we will be getting a great video production testimonial from you too!

It’s no wonder Penrose Productions is still going strong after 30+ years in the Bay Area. Their commitment to great work done right, with no excuses has earned them a well-deserved reputation of excellence.

Their work is first rate from directing, lighting, and camera, to post production. Always friendly and professional, Penrose Productions is our first choice for video production.

I had a great experience working with Jim! He was incredibly professional, yet easy going. He got up to speed quick on my program and made a rather complex video happen in a short time frame. He took care of all of scheduling all of the logistics and interviews, something many people have struggled with in the past. He and his staff were incredibly flexible and even went above and beyond to make last minute changes so I could have the most excellent product. I highly recommend Penrose Productions!

Karalee Brown
Institute for Local Government, Sacramento CA

You were able to create exactly what we wanted in spite of tight time and budget limitations. From selection of actors to final edit, your suggestions were well thought-out and on the mark. You made the DHL customers feel comfortable in front of the camera, and your skill at directing professional talent is obvious in the finished product.

I especially appreciated your flexibility and the personal concern you displayed throughout the project. It is a pleasure working with people who know their business as you do, and I look forward to more projects together in the future.

Paula Carswell
DHL Airways/Worldwide Express

I would like to thank you and your staff for the outstanding job you did producing the Altera corporate video. We were very pleased with your staff’s professionalism and knowledge of the video industry. Everyone was multi-tasked and proficient in all sectors of video production.

I had interviewed several other video companies, but because of the short turnaround time, felt Penrose had a breadth of knowledge in the high tech industry, and could easily comprehend and adapt to the programmable logic device industry. I was correct, we were very impressed with Penrose’s creativity and how efficiently the video production was handled.

We would like to thank you for everything you’ve done to guarantee the video’s success.

Cheryl Scritchfield

Jim and Penrose Productions has been my go to provider for anything multi-media related — for many years! They are the best.

Carol Sisk, Ed.D.

The experience with Penrose Productions has been great. They show up on time, they do what they say they’re going to do, and they really pay attention to detail.
I would highly recommend Penrose Productions.

I would like to send you a big THANK YOU! For everything you have done and what you are about to do to make our event a HUGE success! Can’t tell you how much it means to me/us to have each of you supporting our event and our top clients!!!

Michelle Murphy
Avery Murphy

It is pretty nerve wracking being videotaped, but Jim stayed patient during our many “takes” to get the taping right. Jim and his team are true professionals and were a great asset to making our Avery Murphy client event a success. We can’t wait to see the finished testimonials!

Annette Eckel
Avery Murphy

…the files are great and much appreciated! Thank you so much for your quick turnaround, we will use your services again for sure!

I have worked with Penrose Productions on a lot of commercials and infomercials over 30 years. They do a great job and they are very easy to work with.

Robert Barrows
R.M. Barrows, Inc. Advertising & Public Relations

Your advice, direction, support, and great generosity is sincerely appreciated by all of us associated with this club. The video was universally praised and enthusiastically applauded at the dinner event last Monday. We expect to show it regularly, both inside and outside our two clubhouses, to better inform the nearby communities of the critical nature of the club’s programs for youth during their nonschool hours.
Finally, let me say that for us every step along the way was pleasant. …the world would certainly be a much better place if there were more people like you and your colleagues in it.

Jacquelyn Hodge
Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula

We met Jim at our first Eagle Reunion. Jim has a very impressive resume of clients, testimonials and industry awards. He first created a wonderful 4-minute video of our three PacSky mountain Scout Camps which we have posted to our council webpage as part of our Endowment Campaign marketing program. We showed the “Three Camps” video at last week’s Heritage Society Reunion which was a huge success – we received several new donations that night and expect more in the mail this week.

A very special “THANK YOU” to Jim Penrose.

Larry R. Christenson
Boy Scouts, Pacific Skyline Council

GREAT job, I’ve already got Lee telling me she is considering using you for another job!

Kelita Battle

Again, we could not be more pleased with the video and how everything turned out.
Thanks again for all of your help.

Kristen Yen

I thought you would enjoy seeing the feedback I just received from Kathy about the excellent job you did today for Carollo. She said, “The video shoot went great. Jim is so nice and did a great job. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. ”

There was never a doubt that you’d do a great job. You are a joy to work with.

Susan Couden
Couden + Associates for Carollo Engineers

Penrose Productions made awesome marketing videos for my business. After the videos were uploaded on YouTube and FB, we had an increase in calls. Hence, I highly recommend their services, and you.

Jennifer Baumann

We wanted to thank you and your staff for your hospitality, and the fine work performed at your post production facility. Your equipment is in excellent condition, and our editor was instrumental in meeting our deadline. His knowledge of the equipment, his skill at editing, and his creative input helped us achieve the results we wanted..
Again, thanks for a job well done.

Joey Garcia
Creative Edge, El Cajon

I work in the highly specialized and esoteric industry of vibration control and monitoring, so when I was looking for a video contractor, I knew I would need to find someone who was adept at learning complex details about unique products and tools.

After reaching out to several contractors, I chose Penrose Productions because Jim was extremely communicative, responsive, and collaborative. He made me feel that my project was the most important thing in the world to him, and caught on very quickly to the more challenging to understand aspects of our industry, including lots of new vocab and concepts.

Jim came to our office for a tour, read our literature and asked insightful questions about our customers and audience.

He also was willing to work very closely with me to get the overall video look very consistent with our company branding and style and I was very pleased with both the content and artistic quality of the end result.

Anna Callahan
Crystal Instruments

Just wanted to let you know that Stanley Wang and Susan Bristow of Pantronix came to our studio in Chicago yesterday. They saw the two stories you shot and loved them.
Thanks again for being such good sports on a very long shoot day.

Van King
CSTV, Chicago

I would like to thank you for the excellent job that you did on the video tape of the CTX 1100. I especially appreciate that you could work at short notice to meet our schedules.
The overall customer response to the video has been very positive. Every customer that we have visited to date has requested that we leave the tape so that they could show it to other people in their organizations. The video has turned out to be one of our most successful marketing tools.

One of the biggest problems that we have always had with our products is that it is very hard for the customer to get a clear idea of what our products do. The video fills this gap in our presentation. I plan to use videos as a strategic part of all our future cell controller products.

Again, thanks for a great job and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Hallie Ponce de Leon
CTX International

I’ve reviewed the footage and it looks great… thanks for all your help!

Anthony Santa
Diamond View Studios, Tampa FL

You gave so much throughout the production — your ideas, expertise, wise advice — that the additional contribution is staggering, but very much appreciated. We can’t thank you enough.
The tape will be running at our conferences the first week in March and the first publicity will be out around the same time. We look forward to a very positive response (to match ours) from our audience.

Barbara Levin

I hired Jim to make my company a B roll back in 2004. We used the footage for years after as he gave us a lot to work with with expert shots that we needed. Jim is very easy to work with and delivers excellent work. I highly recommend Jim

Emily Panos

Penrose Productions, provided a quality promotional video at a very good cost. He worked with us on voice-overs, and with less-trained actors. He was flexible, and kept us on-time and on-budget,

Belen Arellano

I was a VERY satisfied client of yours years ago when I was with Viking Freight/FedEx… Some of my favorite years, actually, really enjoyed working with the Penrose team.

Jenni Brumfield

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Penrose Productions … for the outstanding work that was done recently on one of our videos.
As you may recall, we had our National Sales & Marketing meeting this past week and I came in to Penrose Productions the day before the meeting to put together a video with some footage I had.

… (you did your) usual “magic” in the editing suite and created some great effects. As a result, the video was a huge success at the meeting and many of the sales people requested copies to take home.

Thanks you again for the great work.

Kelly Hautala
General Surgical Innovations

Thanks very much, you and your team really grasp the spirit of what I was trying to convey and delivered it! You made me look good, and that’s not easy sometimes!

A special note of thanks for your involvement (and similar sense of humor) in producing what was an extremely well received video presentation…
If you ever decide to advertise your services, I would be happy to be spokesperson for your professionalism, dedication, and personal involvement in a project.

Please pass on my appreciation to your staff…

Doug Sears
Hyatt Hotels, Palo Alto

Just a quick note to say that I was very pleased with the shoot at DOMUS last week and appreciate the results of you and your team. After a initial preview of the footage, the interview looks and sounds great, and the b roll that Greg shot for me after I left for the airport was high quality and thorough.
Penrose then followed through with a quality dub and shipped it over night so that I had it bright and early the next morning. From set up with you and Betty to final delivery, the shoot was seamless. Job well done!

It was a pleasure to work with Penrose Productions and I look forward to working with you all again in the near future.

All the best,

Jane Hamilton
Imagination Publications

This letter is to formally thank you for your assistance and professionalism in providing Inmac with several “super” sales training videos. It has been a pleasure working with you.
Again, thank you for being so flexible in putting things together at the last minute. Looking forward to working with you on our present and future projects.

Barbara Bangtson

I have worked with Jim Penrose and his team several times and they always do high quality work for a reasonable budget. This is a solid company with a long history. Jim is very flexible based on your needs and always has terrific ideas about how to enhance your project. They are one of the best in the valley… would definitely use them again.

Lynn Ware, PhD

Thanks so much for sending Greg to our Media Training session at Polaris Wireless today. He was really great to work with. He was highly experienced and added a lot of value, far beyond just filming the session. His input was insightful and appreciated.

Vivian Kelly

I am just taking this moment to say Thank You to you and to your crew, for making one aspect of my job so satisfying and fun!!!
It was great!

Rita Vandervall

Jim, thank you for all the help in producing the videos we did together over the last few years. You are a true artist and consummate professional, and I consider you a true friend. Thanks for the help.

Tom Powers

Perfect Jim! I love the new ending. It looks SO professional. I love the way you included the logo.

It was a real pleasure working with you! Make sure to tell Greg he did a great job too. He does great work and I couldn’t give him a more glowing review.

I can’t wait until the day I get to work with you again! VERY happy with the finished product!

David Fisher
MobAc Design

I have truly enjoyed working with your company over the past year and a half.
It is such a relief to someone in my position to find a vendor you can trust and rely upon consistently. As you know, the nature of our business is extremely fast-paced and we tend to decide we need to video tape something at the very last minute!! Your company has always been accommodating, patient and willing to work with us under these circumstances. I have really appreciated that, as well as the professionalism of your entire staff and the quality of your work.

Suzanne Jensen
Netscape Communications

It was great working with you and the team and you guys made us look good! We were given lots of kudos.

Susie Sedlacek

I wanted to let you know I had a fantastic time watching you and your team work their magic. You guys are great.

I always appreciate your quick response and look forward to our next project together.

Jim is a very organized and seasoned videographer. He has all of the equipment and knowledge needed to achieve the best footage. He filmed a corporate video for us and the process was painless, we really appreciated that. Great job Jim!

Chanelle Tuck

“Jim and Greg were professional and thorough during our video shoot, and were able to edit together a coherent story even though our subject didn’t produce ideal content. All in all, it is easy for me to recommend Penrose Productions.”

Lorin Kalisky

On behalf of PharmChem Laboratories, we would like to extend our congratulations to Penrose Productions for winning the Cindy Award!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you at Penrose Productions for an excellent job creating an outstanding promotional video production for us which played an important role in our exhibit strategy. As I mentioned to you, the show was a great success for us and I am sure that in the near future we will work on many more projects!

Once again, thank you very much for a job well done!

Peter Soltesz

The Penrose group did an excellent job in every aspect — from initial concepts, through copywriting, photography, graphic design, and editing. They met the challenge of working with multiple personalities within our corporate structure and provided an end product that exceeded overall expectations and continually receives “Bravos” from those who see it.
It was a pleasure working with the people at Penrose Productions and we will definitely call upon them for future video requirements.

Brenda Karstens
Quantum Corporation

Jim did an excellent job filming our company, he was very professional.

Patrick Phen
QPL International

I wanted to take a moment to thank the staff of Penrose Productions for the wonderful effort you all put forth in our bid to be an All-American City.
Penrose Productions did a wonderful job in putting together what literally was the best video presented at the All-America City competition in Tampa, Florida. There was not a person in the audience that day that walked out of that conference room without a tear in their eye. Numerous delegates came up to our delegation to acknowledge the powerful impact that our presentation and video had on the audience and the jury members.

I can sincerely say that we would not have had such a positive impact had it not been for the knowledgeable, professional and caring staff of Penrose Productions.

Throughout the development of our video, you kept us on track and focused. You were always clear on what the goal of our presentation was, even though many times we lost sight of the goal ourselves. The result was a professional video that clearly communicated the human and emotional successes of our programs.

Jim Irizarry
City of Redwood City, CA

“Jim worked with us to develop a corporate promotional video which was filmed on-site at a company event in San Francisco. Jim and his team had familiarized themselves with our event beforehand, were very professional in terms of integrating their presence and equipment into our event seamlessly, and created some very high-quality footage for us. All in all, they have been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anyone looking to produce a corporate video.”

Christine Albert
RTDS Technologies, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

I’ve gotten the OK from all the powers that be. They are very happy with the video! It has been a pleasure working with you and your crew. …we are ready to post it on the Beacon website, our website, and get it onto our CCTV channel.

Sara Aliotti
City of San Carlos CA

Thanks again for help in producing the DVD for our sales kick off — it was a huge success!

Mary Jo Arthur
Serena Software

Thank you, Jim and Greg, for hours of work with us in Nashville. It was really a great relief for me to know that I could always rely on you to be in a place where we needed you, finish the interviews with the Shinnyo-en Young Adults, and capture all the exciting sessions that we had. Not only your technical expertise but also your and Greg’s heartwarming support were what I needed during the busy conference.

Ineko Tsuchida, Ph.D.
Shinnyo-en Foundation

I would like to express my appreciation for the recent work that Penrose Productions did for our company. You understood my need for saving the company money during these hard times. You were able to do an excellent job with a smaller production cost. Everyone is very happy with the result. We are all looking forward to working with you again.

Basille Fattal
Silicon Valley Group, San Jose

Two years ago we struggled to provide adequate installation training to our one hundred (100) North American dealers. This resulted in credits to their accounts in the amount of $40,000. We had to act quickly to correct this situation as we were simultaneously damaging our potential for profit as well as the market value of our product and its trademark.
We worked with Penrose to create an effective, twenty minute instructional video which we hoped would alleviate the problem by having the installers of the SOLIS film watch the video with their managers.

To say that this was a successful undertaking would be a bit of an understatement. In the year that followed, credits passed for improperly installed SOLIS were only $4,000!! A magnitude 10X reduction in cost!! … the dealers all told us that the instructional video was the single largest factor in their improved performance on the job site.

I’m sure you regularly get letters telling you what a pleasure it is to work with you, … but I wanted to let you know about the actual value that we received from the time and money that we invested. Good work, Penrose!

Mark Sharfstein
Southwall Technologies

When I called Penrose Productions for a simple video shoot of some focus groups I was moderating in San Mateo last fall, Jim called back very quickly and it was very clear right away that he was only concerned with making sure we had an excellent experience at a reasonable cost. Without exception, the other firms I contacted were either all about themselves or couldn’t figure out how to shoot a focus group.

For the actual shoot, Jim showed up with all the pro cameras you would ever want and handled everything very professionally like the pro he is and has been for many years. For anything in the San Francisco and surrounding area, he is now our First Call Videographer.

Dwight Fletcher
Spearfish, Dallas TX

I found Jim on Thumbtack 4 days before our event for the kickoff of the Stanford Latino Entrepreneur Leaders Program. He was quick to respond, extremely thorough and had great suggestions. He understood our needs even with our lack of experience in the video department, and he was able to deliver on our vision for the type of footage we wanted. He was detailed and open about the process. our speakers and leaders of the program spoke highly of his professionalism throughout the day.

We will definitely be using Penrose Productions in the future!

Jessica Salinas
Stanford SLELP

Penrose Productions is a fantastic provider of videos, films, webinars and creative new sales and marketing concepts. Jim delivers unique and state of the art products as well as being a consummate professional. Poised and thoughtful I cannot imagine using anyone other than Jim for my professional sales and video needs.

The Marketing team is very pleased with the rough draft video. Can you give us an outline of the cost for these types of recordings? We would like to budget 4 recordings for 2014.
