BrightSource Productions provides creative and comprehensive video production services for the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

This means you only need one vendor for all your video production needs.


It usually starts with an email (contact@brightsourceproductions.com).


We just need the basics: Who you are, what type of video you want to make or what video production service do you need?


Then we will setup a phone call or a meeting in person.  We’ll have a handful of questions for you and we can answer any questions you have for us.


Next comes the quote, the deposit payment, then the fun begins.


So how much does it cost?  Well, we make so many different types of videos with so many different concepts that we cannot answer that question until after that first phone call.  It takes some resources to make good videos but we know we make them at a fair price.


How long will it take? This is another question we cannot answer until after that first phone call; but we have invested in the technology and talent to finish projects quickly.


Who will you work with?  You will work with John Leestma the founder or one of our producers.  But depending on the nature of your project, you will likely work with the other members of our team as well.


Those are basics.  We’re ready when you are.
