He has a unique understanding of the entire process from scripting and story development to technical shot selection, camera angles, lighting, sound and editing. Always with an eye toward fast turnaround and cost effectiveness, Tony has consistently delivered high quality, professional videos for us at a fraction of the cost of other video production companies.

“Tony and his wife worked on a couple videos for me and I loved them! More importantly, everyone who has seen the videos always compliments how well done they were and ask me who did them for me. Tony’s the man!”

■ Daniel Pichardo, CRPC®, Co-Founder, Bridge Wealth Management Group


“Every minute you spend working with Pinto Productions convinces you that they really do love what they do. Their commitment to excellence, their easy-going manner, their competitive pricing structure; all of it is congruent with their passion for their business. I could easily write a long recommendation but I’ll sum it up with this: Tony and Tara are masters at helping you tell your story in an emotionally moving way. They bring the story you hope to tell to life. When you see people watch your video tear up you think to yourself, ‘I’d have paid 3x what I paid and still been delighted.’ I am so glad we were introduced to Tony and Tara. They are without question strategic assets!.”

“Working with Tony was a fantastic and cost-effective collaborative process for creating our user testimonial videos. Our CEO and entire team were blown away by the high-quality, professional-grade work he was able to produce in a very short amount of time. The video is now the centerpiece of our homepage and is no small reason why we have since seen our website lead conversion skyrocket. We will definitely be turning to him and his team for future work as our video needs grow.”

■ Thomas Bonneau, Director of Product Marketing, Top of Mind Networks


“I have worked with Tony on a project to produce and market a series of videos on the Internet (Catering Toolbox). After doing extensive research in the field of video production and specifically HD format web video, I found Tony to be a leader in his field. His knowledge is only exceeded by his creativity. I can’t recommend his services highly enough.”

“We recently needed a video done for our Honoree of our 40th Annual Great Futures Auction. We needed it within a week. Tony came through for us in the last minute with a GREAT video including using his drone to enhance the video with a fly over of our clubhouse and some of our youth. Tony is dependable, honest, detailed and we found him to be fair in his pricing. I will use his services again and highly recommend him.”

■ Tim Blaylock, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica


“Tony has been great to work with. I first worked with Tony as a social media consultant for the California Jazz & Wine Fest. He helped create a presence for us on Facebook and Twitter, and we have seen it grow thanks to him and his team. Tony’s work with us at the recent Fest in 2014 included video for the day and he has been editing the final results for a great promo video for us to use for 2015. He and Tara are easy to work with and they help make us shine. Thanks to the two of them!”

“I’ve worked with Tony on a number of video production projects, and his work has always exceeded my expectations. Pinto Productions handles all aspects of a video shoot, from filming to post production. Tony is a true creative professional, with an exemplary attention to detail. Tony is receptive to feedback, and is able to balance artistry with tactical implementation. I would wholeheartedly recommend Pinto Productions to anyone.”

Michael Carlson, Vice President of Marketing, ForwardLine


“Tony lent me his expertise on concept-to-completion of a video CD of my real estate staging work. He suggested key components that made my final project an outstanding marketing tool to share with potential clients. As my profession is visual in nature, this CD has been the perfect vehicle to promote my creative expertise. I would highly recommend Tony to others who need someone who has extensive knowledge and can produce timely and creative projects.”

■ Pamela Smith, Owner, Ventura County Home Staging

He balances the need of his creative contractors with those of his businesses, open to suggestions while providing intelligent feedback on complex material. Although he keeps a demanding schedule, he’s always sensitive to the impact it has on his colleagues and is accommodating with his time.”
