Videos that inspire people to lean in, care and take action
Every video tells a story. Whether it’s around the campfire, across the conference table or at an event for hundreds, great storytelling engages, inspires and motivates. Faber Productions is a Bay Area video production company that knows how beautiful images, music, pacing, an ending that satisfies, a thousand choices must be made and skillfully layered to create a compelling visual narrative. We have the experience, the expertise and the passion to inspire your audience to action.
How We Work
A collaborative process
STRATEGY-FIRST VIDEO PRODUCTION
Our conversations with our clients begin with two key questions: who is your audience and what do you want them to do after they see your video? The answers empower us to tell the right story in the right way, and to create an effective video distribution strategy. As a strategy-first video production company, we help you answer that third key question: how can we get your video in front of the audiences you want to impact?
Social Media and Beyond
Over a decade of working collaboratively with our clients in the Bay Area has led us to the understanding that a compelling video is only part of the road to success. That final leg is the strategic plan, because early planning informs content, style and length before filming even begins.
Every context is different. If more than one audience is being considered, more than one video might be called for. A website video is a form of passive marketing, while videos for social media platforms and ads would are active ways to market.
Faber Productions creates videos for company profiles, branding, testimonials, product launches and expressions of company culture. We inspire audiences with powerful calls to action, so that they take that next step.
Let’s talk about your project
“Faber Productions jumped mid-way into a big, complex video project and turned it around 180 degrees. What you get with Chris is not just a video editor, but a writer-thinker-creator-storyteller extraordinaire, who will wrestle with your project until it is perfect. I have not worked with anybody that goes to such efforts to understand who you are, what you want, and then figure how to best tell that story. In summary: talented, generous, honest, and a true pro.”
“We recently hired Faber Productions for a video project in San Fran. He met with us several times leading up to the event to talk about the story, and spent time understanding our project goals. The end result was incredible. We used the video to help showcase our products at our annual customer conference.”
“We had a fantastic experience. The team did a wonderful job producing our company video. Chris is an amazing videographer and visual storyteller. He was genuinely interested in getting to know us and didn’t follow some generic checklist to understand our requirements. He produced a beautiful, compelling video about our brand.”
“Our company found Faber Productions online in a time of dire need. We’d just lost our video producer and we were right in the middle of a time-sensitive project. Chris was a godsend. He jumped in with no hesitation, despite a tight deadline and a learning curve for our video niche. This man has the soul of a poet and the eye of an artist. Our project absolutely glowed when he was finished. Our client was thrilled.”
Kelli Standish, PULSEPOINT DESIGN
“I was involved with a collaborative project between a number of Alameda County agencies and community based organizations. We contracted with Faber Productions based on their body of work and obvious skills. What we received was far beyond our expectations. With so many partners and stakeholders, there were bound to be many different viewpoints, opinions, and expectations. Chris proved himself to be a skilled listener who was not only able to hear the numerous needs of his clients, but also find the balance between all those viewpoints and interpret them in a way on film that was amazing. He was professional, passionate about his work, and had a seemingly endless amount of patience. In the end, every one of our partners and collaborators were blown away and happy with the product.”
Janice Chin, ALAMEDA COUNTY BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
“I was honored to collaborate with Faber Productions on a short social action documentary. Chris is original, bold, nuanced, and a perfectionist. His extensive screenwriting experience was invaluable as we worked to craft the perfect story arc. Chris expertly extracted the most touching moments from hours of footage, then molded these elements together into a clear, emotional story with impact.
Our viewers were riveted — and led to action.”
Naomi Ture, DIRECTOR, A PERFECT DONOR
“Chris’s passion is boundless and his perceptions keen. He’s one of those odd characters for whom film editing comes naturally, a rare combination of tech savant and creative artist.”
Gene Corr, Writer, Director,”Waldo Salt” ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE
“Please tell your editor that he is awesome. Only an artist could do what he does with such genius and perfection. I’m absolutely stunned by what he gave to this — what you all have created for my book with the book trailer.”
BJ Hoff, AUTHOR, AMERICAN ANTHEM
“Their tasteful touches and attention to detail took our demo from good to great. Chris has a knack for matching message and style to a target audience. They treated our project as if it were their own.”
Sean Sullivan, TODAY COLLEGE TOURS
“Faber Productions helped put together the best promotional video possible from the limited footage we had. It’s easy to see that they care.”
Jody Greenberg, THE REFUGEES
“Faber Productions provided extensive support for my latest music video project. Chris did an outstanding job with color correction, enhancing definition in the images and creating visual continuity throughout, delivering high quality professional work at a reasonable rate.”
Neil Raphael, STEREO CAMP RECORDS
“Chris is fast, intuitive and whip-smart. His head and heart are equally strong. Working together is always fun.”
