Alan Cash was a delight to work with. He helped me create a demo video based on previous shows. He was eminently reasonable and accommodating through my stress of trying to make something effective to showcase some work. Happily I was able to secure a gig based on the video--used to be called a "reel" --that Alan created. Reasonably priced and successful! More...

Alan was a pleasure to work with! He produced a high quality live webinar with physicians at UCSF, and went above an beyond to plan and make sure every detail was perfect for the day of. When you are producing a live video, there are a lot of variables to stress about, but his expertise was apparent and put me at ease that he could handle anything that came up. Will definitely work with him again! More...

Alan Cash and his crew helped me co-produce video coverage of a large Memorial of over 300 people in Oakland in a technically very challenging environment. As an Emmy Award winning Cinematographer I am used to a high level of quality, both technically and in the realm of personality and reliability. Alan exceeded every hope and expectation and I can highly recommend his services. More...

Our organization worked with Alan in February 2019 for filming a clinical training for our Directors. Alan was so kind and professional. He communicated excellently throughout the whole process. On the day of the training, he arrived onsite early to set up with loads of great equipment. He brought everything he needed and all of his equipment interfaced with ours perfectly. We were particularly drawn to Alan's services for his "live-switching" technology--the ability to seamlessly switch between his two camera angles and our presenter's slides in live time, making the filming super efficient with very little post-editing needed. The final videos turned out amazing! They look so professional and the audio and video quality is incredible. We highly recommend Alan's videography services and we hope to partner again with him in the future! More...

Alan came to our rescue when we needed a special event to be video recorded at the last minute. Our regular videographer could not tape our event and he recommended Alan Cash. Alan was so courteous, helpful, professional, and as a bonus, fun to work with. The end result was a wonderful video of a special life moment that will be enjoyed for years to come. I highly recommend Alan for any of your special events. More...

Alan filmed our agency's workshop (on climate change and disability) and produced a terrific film we can post and distribute widely. It's not easy to make a workshop film come alive, but he did this. He worked with us very collaboratively, including our input but enabling us to depend on his considerable expertise--to cut it way down to a manageable length, to highlight key points, to use graphics to alternate with talking heads, to bring the workshop's audience into the dialog. Reasonably priced, highly recommend! We're very pleased! More...

Before Alan, our recording process was inconsistent at best; spotty and almost non-existent at worst. After Alan came on board, he helped us to make recordings available sooner and with far greater reliability. He makes me look good, which makes the organization look good--double happiness to say the least. I would recommend him for his diligence and tenacity to make "a way" where at first there was none. I've recommended him to several people and will continue to do so for as long as I have the pleasure of working with him. More...

Alan is completely professional, well-prepared, and has a wonderful artistic eye. His energy around the guests at our event was unobtrusive, yet he managed to find the shots he needed to create a wonderful video, using two cameras. He put in time beforehand to make sure he knew what to expect and that he understood what we needed, and he delivered a beautiful record of a difficult-to-film piece of choreography with a large cast. Every bit of communication and all interactions were timely and well-executed. He is the best!!! More...

Alan is the consummate professional. He is conscientious, punctual, efficient, and extremely talented. And the icing on the cake is his compassion and dedication to his projects. He gives it his all. We're grateful to have found Alan and have asked him to film our two large events so far this year. The last event was a two hour concert featuring 60 musicians and singers.I also must mention his brilliant talent for editing and producing a final product with beautiful cutaways and shots. This is a man who loves what he does. His work is a testament to his passion and professionalism. More...

We are extremely pleased with the excellent job Alan Cash Video did filming our most recent concert. He was very professional and fun to work with. He made the whole process easy to understand and was able to walk us through some of the more difficult steps. He was very easy to communicate with and was responsive to all our questions. The result was a high quality production that he even helped us upload to our YouTube channel. We will certainly give Alan Cash a call for any future filming needs! More...

When the three of us in the Zawaya office opened the video file from Alan Cash after our concert on Saturday, Feb. 27 in Oakland, we were amazed by what we were seeing! A fantastic video of the entire performance, made with such skill, precision, and artistry that not only the music and performers, but also the living spirit of the event were all captured for us to see and remember. Immediately, we sent the video out to those who had funded the event and to foundations we hope to fund us in future. We felt as if we were handing them the concert as we had lived it! We can't recommend Alan highly enough. We feel very lucky to have had him with us that night and look forward to his video-ing our concerts to come. Thank you, Alan! More...

Alan live-streamed a 6 hour presentation for my non profit. The quality was great and over 250 people were able to tune in online as a result. He was very kind and professional and went above and beyond for us. He helped us set up the video in advance and helped edit the footage afterwards. He is by far the best videographer that we have worked with. We would absolutely hire him again! More...

Working with Alan was a breeze! I needed a promotional video made for my company but I didn't feel very comfortable talking about myself. Alan made it easy for me to feel natural and relaxed and before I knew it he had shot everything he needed in one day. He worked his editing magic and pulled it all together in no time. Now I have a great video to show off on my social media page and website! More...

Alan is the quintessential professional. He recorded and live-streamed my day long event and the quality of his work was fantastic. Alan was at the venue early and ready for any hiccups that might have come along the way with the hotel's technology (which there was). He was calm, cool and collected and went with the flow. His persistence in being sure I received a quality product was paramount and I'm happy to say that's what I got. I would highly recommend Alan for any of your video needs where you want your best to be displayed . More...

Highly recommend Alan Cash Video. He's very easy to work with, and produces a very high quality product. My non-profit organization hired him to record a keynote address and panel discussion at a conference. On-site he was very professional, working well with the venue to get the highest quality video and sound possible. Plus, during planning and editing his communication was impeccable, which I especially appreciate. In the end, I'm receiving compliments from our customers about the videos he produced. Awesome!!

Alan video-recorded a presentation I gave and made me look great! Usually I hate seeing myself on video, and was reluctant to even watch it after he (promptly) sent it to me. He used a two-camera shoot and it was beautiful ... much better than I guessed it could be. There are lots casual videos that people shoot on all kinds of devices and work for different purposes. I think every professional should have some professionally shot video that is highly professional, well crafted, and says that the person is serious about being in business. Alan is the ultimate professional in all ways ... kind, supportive, and very talented. I'll be happy to use Alan again in the future and recommend him highly. More...

Alan has been the most wonderful and professional videographer I have had the privilege to work with. He video-recorded and edited interviews and compiled a promotional video for our theatre company. He not only easily grasps the requirements of the client, but also has a deep understanding of how to make both an aesthetically pleasing and a compelling video. I truly appreciate his talent, passion and most of all, his sincerity and his commitment to his work. Despite incredibly tight deadlines and other roadblocks, Alan managed to deliver an excellent quality video right on time! I would highly recommend Alan if you are looking for a videographer with talent, passion and excellent work ethics! More...

Q&A

I love all aspects of video production, from planning, filming, post production and achieving great results.
What gives me the most joy, is NOT just the praise that I receive from my clients, it's knowing that I work with integrity and always over-deliver.
I am 100% committed to what I do, because it's not just a job, it's my craft and I feel very privileged to love what I do on a daily basis!
I now work with very talented people on my small team and I look forward to being of service to you.

I've always loved photography and the movies since childhood and it was my dream to start a video production business.
In 2012, after many years as a freelance graphic /web designer, video production was the next step using all my former skills.
What really inspires me, is knowing that I produce high quality work and have proven results from countless satisfied clients.

1. I love what I do. This is not a job, this is a passion for the craft and way for me to give a great service to my clients.
2. I'm easy to work with. Just ask my previous clients and they will tell you the same.
3. I always over-deliver and go the extra mile.
4. My pricing is very competitive for the value of work I offer.

Some basic things to be thinking about as you plan your promotional video Script. You’ll need to write a script, then review it with our team. Make sure you’ve included an attention-getting introduction, a conclusion summarizing key points and a call to action. Timing. We recommend two-three quality minutes. Time yourself and edit where necessary. Use action verbs and short sentences. Slow down and speak clearly. Content preparation. Be comfortable with your content so you can speak conversationally to your audience. We can use a teleprompter, but for some, it makes the delivery too stiff. A professional voiceover narrative can also be a good option. Selecting and using B-roll in promotional videos You’ll want to include B-roll in your video to provide visual variety. It plays in the background behind the dialog and is an important part of telling an engaging story. We can work with the client to plan and film customized B-roll. Are you ready to create a customized promotional video that showcases your team, brand, new product or service? Let us help you!
