Service Areas

Picture This Video proudly serves the Northern Virginia and Metro DC areas. Specifically, we operate within a 25-mile radius of Fairfax, Virginia.

Although our core clients are within a 25 mile radius of Washington DC, we have been able to serve clients in Scotland, Australia, London, and other parts of the United States (including Puerto Rico!).

What Picture This Video does

We provide a range of services for a wide array of clients, from freelance work to script-to-screen production.

We love helping businesses and organizations needing help with start-to-finish video marketing and production.
Locally, we serve production companies and television stations requiring specialized freelance services, such as teleprompter.

As a full service production company, our geographic limits are more fluid, as we can provide crews local to our clients and ship out remote recording kits.
