#1. They're sticky. They capture viewer attention.
#2. They tell stories. Since most of us think and learn using language, working in and through words comes "naturally." It's a simple level of communication.
#3. They're fun. When your words build, shake, rattle and roll, and when your graphs grow and charts flow, they work like glue for eyes.
#4. They're easy to share. Being short stories and small files you can attach them, send them and link to them quickly.
Give us PowerPoint slides of your ideas, reports and presentations. Custom Video can make your words dance, plus animate characters, processes and pictures of places. We can make your presentation a pleasure to watch without sacrificing the nitty-gritty information.
As script writers we create narratives, documentaries and drama for programs that market products and services, train, orient, honor, protect and inform.
As producers we do all the behind the scene work that makes a production successful: scheduling, location, sets, crew, equipment, talent, wardrobe and props. Because we own our own equipment, we offer flexible services and rates. And what we don’t have, we source from our network of talent here and around the world.
As directors we strive to get the best performances and shots. Then we direct the editing, graphics, and effects to complete the program on time and on budget.
Custom Video goes where the action is! We provide professional video recording services on location, during meetings & events, and in television studios. We’ve worked all across the US and around the world. Home turf is the Philadelphia metro area, and that often stretches to New York City and Washington, DC. We shoot in many standard and high definition formats. By recording to memory cards and drives we save you time and money on the final deliverable.
For on-camera presentations, interviews, testimonials, and product demonstrations we’ll go around the corner or half way around the world. Rates are flexible. Book us for a 10 hour day, 5 hour half day or just 3 hours to save some cash. Besides our excellent field production units, we offer teleprompters, camera dollies, Steadicam, extra wireless and shot-gun microphones, audio mixers, portable backdrops, chroma-key backgrounds and more.
Cut, reorder, pad-out, massage, sweeten & tweak! As editors we weave a story from threads of ideas, images and sounds from speaker to speaker and topic to topic. We punctuate interviews with action, organize messages, reveal things, get laughs, and unleash feelings of sympathy, joy, admiration and determination. Editing is a challenging art that we take seriously. At Custom Video we have the professional skills and tools, plus the aesthetic competence you need.
Our graphic design and animation talent add visual appeal, uniqueness and style to your video. We animate logos and design titles, graphic builds, lower-thirds, and bumpers to make your video more distinctive and professional. Through graphics we can interpret your complex concepts into clear and simple stories.
The Custom Video Productions team has consistently provided exceptional service and solutions for me and my team on a variety of multi-media production needs.

"Each project presented its own unique set of challenges and constraints, and Custom Video consistently delivered creative and cost-effective solutions and superior work. I've enjoyed working with them … Thanks."
"Thank you yet again for another piece of useful training. The video itself has been very well received by a number of military training establishments. … We anticipate sending it out to all Peacekeeping and Political missions - no question about it, the video has succeeded completely in moving the DSR process forward. Having regard to how thin your brief was, how little direction or script we gave you, I think you produced a veritable silk purse out of a sow's ear. Cannot thank you enough."
