Tyron Jordan for Oakland City Council

This video is an example of a campaign video production by Audio Visual Consultants Oakland Video Production company. This production included setting up a pro camera, microphone and lighting to professionally film Mr. Jordan speaking to the camera. We use highly-experienced videographers. During filming, we film several “takes” until we get the video that satisfies the client. The client supervises the video shoot as well as the video editing. 

AVC Video editing includes video enhancements to bring out the best color and contrast. We add lower-third titles that display the speaker’s name and other information. Viewers may turn on captioning while they watch the video.

The finished product is a high-resolution video that the client may upload to their YouTube page, Facebook and LinkedIn.
