What our clients say about our Script-to-Screen Video Production service
Sharon is a gem! I had a last minute project and called Picture This Video and without question Sharon and her team were on it in a flash. I couldn't have asked for a better video and production team then Picture this Video. She took time with me to ensure I understood what to expect before, during, and after production. When they arrived at the location they were prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and creative when it came the shots needed to make this video special. Her turn around time was exactly what she said and the video was more then I expected but, exactly what I envisioned. Thanks Picture This Video you made my Virtual Event super special.
I had such a great experience working with the team at Picture This Video. I was well prepared leading up to taping and made to feel super comfortable making the video, which isn't an easy thing to accoplish for me. The vdieo turned out great! I would highly reccomend using them for all of your video needs.
We asked Sharon to produce a video featuring residents and life at The Old Soldiers Home. The home is/was closed to the public during Covid so Sharon had to work with the residents remotely. She helped define the vision/purpose, guided the development of a script, helped identify still photos to insert in the video - and delivered us an OUTSTANDING final product. All for a very affordable price. We are very grateful for Sharon's patience and professionalism.
Working with Sharon Sobel (Maven of Picture This Video) to make our short film was easy and we also just had a great time. She turned the product around in no time and was a knowledgeable guide in the filming and editing processes. I am so grateful for her expertise and care. Mary J. Novak, Catholic Mobilizing Network, Chair, Board of Directors
Our experience with Sharon and Picture This Video was first-rate. The video she produced for us was professional, and she was willing to make edits (quickly!) to fine-tune the video to meet our exact specifications. Sharon was great to work with, and we're very happy with the final result.
From start to finish, Sharon was instrumental in coordinating the entire production of my commercial. She advised me how to communicate with videographer most effectively so we captured everything she would need post-production and answered all my concerns. She caught the vibe that I wanted and even in the first draft nailed down so many of our critical needs. Through the editing process, we had difficulty finding the right music and so very resourcefully, she reallocated our budget to include a musician who brilliantly executed a piece for us. She managed her time so well that we didn't use all our hours - I'm really looking forward to working with Sharon again and highly recommend her!
Sharon is amazing to work with! She quickly "got" who we were and what was most important for us to convey in a 30 second commercial with a tight deadline. Will work with again in the future!
What to expect
How it works
Overall timelines are based on the project’s deadlines for each phase of production. If you have a tight deadline, send us a message - we'll give you an honest assessment of whether we're able to help.
Keeping your budget and timelines in mind, we’ll develop a script that allows you to “picture this video” for your evaluation and approval. We can also use your prepared script, or use it as a starting point. The scripting process will shape a shot list and identify what crew roles we’ll need to provide.
Once the final script is approved, and deposit is received, production will start! We’ll conduct the shoot and obtain any additional imagery or media that’s been identified.
We can electronically send you versions of the video as it gets edited, giving you the opportunity to provide feedback on any spot in the video without you having to spend hours in the edit suite so you can focus on the other important things you have to get done! We’ll provide any version of the finished video you need: whether it’s formatted for social media, a big screen, or website delivery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Quick answers to common questions folks like you ask about Script-to-Screen Video Production
Can you do scriptwriting, too?
Yes! We can do the scriptwriting, or we can start with what you have and make it better for video.
What elements can you do, and what do we need to hire someone else for?
Picture This Video is a full-service video production company, so when it comes to that, you don’t need to look any further!
Are you putting my video on YouTube for me?
No, but if you tell us you intend to put it on YouTube, we’ll make sure it’s formatted for that. We do not host videos for our clients. When you have finalized your video, you will be given the resolution and formatted video for how and where you intend to use it, as indicated in your proposal and contract. We will help you as much as we can with further uses of it, whether it’s embedding it in a newsletter or website, uploading it to social media, showing it in a great big conference setting, etc.
What if I decide I want another version later, or need it updated? How do you handle that?
We have a very large media server, and still have client projects from more than 15 years ago. All projects are backed up regularly, as well. We would never get rid of your project without your knowledge. And we don’t charge storage fees.
What if we change our mind on something after we’ve signed a contract?
All contracts come with a “Change of Scope” page. This page outlines any changes that you might request that would affect the project’s cost by more than 10%. If you need changes that impact the price in that manner, we’ll talk to you about it, and if you agree, we’ll outline these prices and the new total on the “Change of Scope” form, which will require your signature before we proceed.
Can you do photography, too?
We have photography partners, but we do not book ourselves as both photographer and videographer for the same shoot. If you need something more than a screen grab from our footage, or a cell phone behind-the-scenes image, it’s best that we book a separate photographer for your job, so that we can fully concentrate on the primary role of videographer you booked us for!
