Full-Service Creative

Some clients have a clear vision, while others need a little help getting there.  Most production companies only shoot and edit. We do everything including high-level creative work (concept development, script writing), and vital pre-production logistics (casting actors, location scouting).

A little about who we are,

and what you sign up for when you decide to work with us.

No one tells you this, but production is really just the sum of a series of choices. There are usually several different ways to accomplish the same goal, and like anything else, corresponding tradeoffs.  Sometimes the seemingly smallest choices can have huge implications.  Other times, devoting a little more attention to something subtle can end up having a profound impact on your end product. Meticulous production planning now, saves headaches and budget later.

We help you understand, and successfully navigate, the choices you will encounter on the road to realizing your vision.  Our knowledge (and transparency) will guide you through the creative and technical sides of the production process, and help you understand how smart choices can lead to an awesome video within your budget.

BETA Video is a full-service creative agency started by director and DP Neil Schwartz in 2009, after spending the previous decade working in both film production and marketing.
