We have stories to tell... Success stories

Screenshot: Sticher Overview

Since opening our doors in 1981 we’ve produced more than 10,000 videos. Creating everything from explainer and overview videos to television commercials, integrated videos, broadcast news and documentaries. We’ve worked with some of the most exciting and innovative organizations, like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and NASA, and helped a bunch of start-ups become big names in their own right, like Box and Mint. Creating work that’s made a difference, while helping our clients succeed and grow.

picturelab How to make your story a success Create a great video with Transvideo’s creative team Begin with Picturelab – our internal creative & design agency. You can be as involved in the process as you like, or let us handle all the details for you. Either way you’ll benefit from our experience with hundreds of Internet-age clients and an efficient, cost effective alternative to traditional agencies. And Picturelab is backed by the resources and strength of Silicon Valley’s largest film/video production company, the full service soundstage broadcasting complex of Transvideo Studios. Supplying more than just a video, we help clients integrate, build and communicate their branding, marketing, sales, and positioning of products and services. The Process… Perhaps the first and most helpful step is for you to pick out a few videos that you like… they can be ours, or even someone else’s. This helps us understand a little more about the style you like, and its scope. It also helps if you have a budget range and deadline in mind. But if you don’t know that yet, no worries. We can help you determine these based on your needs. Cost and Time So how much does a video cost? How long does it take? A video can cost anything and take anywhere from a week to several months to complete. It just depends. We’ll know more after we talk. Generally, our videos fall into four tiers. Check out our past videos and use this key for estimates on cost and time. We try really hard to exceed expectations. We meet the most demanding critical budgets and timelines. Are you a startup with limited resources? Let’s talk. Impossible deadline? Maybe it’s not too late. Every day we originate live broadcast segments for clients such as CNN, CNBC, FoxNews, ABC, and others. And we meet the needs of very demanding corporate clients too. Whether it’s a startup in Kazakhstan, or delivering excellence to clients like Google, Apple, and others here in California’s Silicon Valley. We’re on it. The integrated video experience Once your video is completed, how will it be presented to your audience? Will it require three or more clicks before playing?. And when it finally does play, does it seem like a stuck-on after-thought?. Will your visitor take an unexpected trip to YouTube or another video streaming website?. Does the video ignore the design of your website? If the answer to any of these is yes, then such a disruption can pull your viewer away from the brand experience you’ve worked so hard to develop… not unlike the feeling you get watching a great movie and being interrupted by a telemarketer from your local cable company :-). In contrast, this Transvideo homepage demonstrates just a few simple examples of a more elegant merger of cinematic video into traditional web content. We call it Integrated Video. Hover around and play buttons appear. Click on them and see how it works. It’s simply a more enjoyable online experience. Integrated Video seamlessly launches high quality video from within page content, while maintaining consistent design, and providing easy access to existing SEO & links. And it still provides all the benefits of video, such as increased conversion while making more efficient use of website real estate. Once a visitor experiences this, they may be anticipating the discovery of more video content on your other web pages. Looking for that play button to appear. Will they find yours?

Cost ANd Time

Although most of the videos we create are within a range of $30k to $60k, we also do a lot of videos for other budgets.

Why Overview Videos Matter

"Our signup rate from paid ads just about doubled after we put the video on our home page. We made no other changes". – Andrew Erlichson, CEO, Phanfare.
