San Francisco Bay Area Digital Film/Video Production Company

Who we are and what we do

We make videos.  All kinds.  And they’re good, seriously good.   We create videos that are effective in driving results and inspiring your audiences to act.
Our videos tell your story the way it needs to be told. Straight-up, dramatic, inspirational, funny, or way out-of-the-box from far left field. Sometimes we’re on a live action set directing actors or interviewing CEOs and SMEs.  Sometimes we’re at our computers making amazing motion graphics and animation.  We get results, whatever it takes.
And we do it all.  We’ll come up with the killer ideas, the treatments, the scripts, and then we’ll shoot and edit.   We are the all-in-one, full service, creative video production company you’re looking for.

Our brand

We do creative for a living – doesn’t get more awesome than that.  Yes, we like to have fun, and make money doing it.  And help other brands look good and make money…and of course, have some fun as well. 


Remember Transvideo Studios?  The largest video production company in Silicon Valley for years with the best sound stage north of Hollywood?  Yeah, that's us, minus the stage.  Picturelab was the creative division of Transvideo Studios for years but then we accepted that we are Picturelab.  All of us.
We’re based in Mountain View, San Jose, Silicon Valley, the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but our video production and creative services go beyond that.  We have clients all over the world.
We work with tech giants and startups.  We’ve also produced nifty videos for fintech, edtech, health care, and all types of products and services.  We partner with brands, creative agencies and marketing professionals to create high quality commercials.

Our clients

To name a few: Google, Facebook, Samsung, LinkedIn, PagerDuty, Mint, Box, Gong, Sift, New Relic, Thumbtack, Synology, Personal Capital, Esignal, MobileIron.  See what we've done for our clients here.

Our (very over-simplified) process

Step #1: We listen.  Tell us everything you want to tell us.  Your brand, your goals, your vision, your idea of a perfect video. Sometimes you may not know what you want.  Tell us that, too.  We’ll absorb it, inhale it, and start to digest it.
Step #2: We speak and we listen some more.  We’ll come back with ideas, recommendations and some really deep life-changing wisdom.  You’ll tell us what you think.  And then we’ll tell you what we think.  And we’ll keep cooking until it’s super-delicious for everyone.
Step #3: We make the video.  With a camera and actors or with a computer and After Effects, we’ll make that video, and it’ll be a thing that’s pretty and shiny.
Step #4: We share the video.  With the world or with your internal teams – whoever the audience is, their lives will be changed forever.
