Bonnie has done several videos for my floor covering business. She always does a great video and somehow helps ease my nerves while filming. I highly recommend Bonnie Keith.Lisa Wicall
Hi Bonnie, I just wanted to thank you and let you know we truly enjoyed the video. It was great we have seen it 3 times already. Everybody who has seen it has loved it. Including Michael and my aunt. Tomorrow I am going to my mom’s house to show my family. We have been so busy that my family has not seen it. I really appreciate all your work. It was great. You and your crew captured the day perfectly. It is priceless. We really enjoyed it. I loved the still photos, too. Thank you for opening with my grandmother, that was just perfect. We can’t Thank you enough…
I hate to give Bonnie a recommendation because then she’ll be busier and not have enough time for my projects… But to be fair here’s why I’ve dubbed her the “Video Surgeon.”
Bonnie was hired to do a single-camera shoot of my keynote. We talked in advance about what I’d like and she got a feeling for what I wanted. She visited the venue and returned telling me she decided it needs a three-camera shoot. WOW! The day of the event, she had FIVE cameras! And she didn’t charge me extra! Here’s where it gets interesting…
Bonnie goes above and beyond. Her work and professionalism is superb. I love working events with her, I’m a DJ. Bonnie not only captures so many priceless moments using various camera people in different locations, so nothing is missed… She also does it seamlessly working with me the caterer and the photographer, so that the party runs smoothly and the FUN and tender moments happen naturally! Bonnie is sweet and powerhouse of energy to work with and the final edited product is always timely and AMAZING!! Hire Video Magic for any and all your lifetime events!!Jeff A
Great job, oh lovely Bonnie. I’m SO impressed with your work! Who would’ve thought that you’d be on the other side of the camera? Thank you for your hours of work, your excellent eye, and your still youthful good looks. How do you do it?
I wish that I could’ve been to the dinner and the viewing of the dance concert. Thank you for filling those gaps for me….
I just wanted to thank you again, wholeheartedly, for all your work, artistry, generosity and willingness to offer us something that we will truly treasure. …..
Regards and special thanks,Jeanne A
Bonnie puts her all into creating a video spot that speaks for you. I needed a video of a photography project in the making and she came through with flying colors for me. I told her what my hope was and she made it happen exactly so that the video captured the day just as it unfolded. I am a fine art portrait photographer and being taped while photographing in my small studio was a challenge. The disk was delivered quickly so I could share the experience right away with my audience as well.
I wholeheartedly recommend Bonnie for a one minute (or longer) commercial about your business or any other video work you need. She is very professional.Kathy R
I sent Bonnie several hours of home movies that were previously transferred onto DVD. The problem was they were all mashed together — different people — different times on assorted DVD’s. Bonnie was able to edit the movies onto four separate DVD’s that had all the right people in the right movies at the right time. She added titles, special effects, and the most perfect music I could imagine. I sent her a mish mash and she sent me back a masterpiece. Her rates are great and her professionalism is unparalleled.Jeff E.
Bonnie videotaped an entire Laughter Yoga presentation of mine and then edited it into a much smaller version that I could post in other places. It has been so encouraging to people who have seen it. One friend from across the country saw it and immediately googled Laughter Yoga in her community so she could participate! Bonnie also has amazing ideas about how you can use your video to market your business. Just a wealth of information and heart!Shelley B.
Bonnie, is an untapped resource. You should meet with her for a no fluff meeting about you video needs. She has done many videos in the Santa Clarita Valley. Cost effective and on time.Ed B.
I’m not the kind of person that would ever consider being on camera. But yet Bonnie was able to coach me into doing a Video of me and my Business. Its not easy for some of use to be on camera.Her understanding and patients made it easy.With fantastic results.
I guess that why they call it Video Magic.
I am SO impressed with Video Magic and the wonderfully talented Bonnie Keith! If you are looking for a great sports video, wedding video and any other special occasion, you will get the best with Bonnie!! She is so invested in your project and has touched my heart deeply with the way she captured my daughter in softball! Thank you so very much!!Kim T.
Bonnie is THE absolute best!! She’s experienced, friendly, personable, affordable and incredibly creative. Her work is far above and beyond your expectations. I can only say, I wish I’d heard about her earlier. I gave her a tough video editing assignment and in only a couple of days, she surpassed my wildest dreams! When I need video editing again, she’s on speed dial!Steve S.
Thank you so much for your crew being both Photographer AND Videographer for our wedding! The photos inside the video accentuated the precious moments taking it to greater level of beauty than I ever could have imagined. Since I was the bride I missed some of the details along the way so it’s pure joy to watch the idyllic scenery of the actual procession come alive for me. Cory and I will forever treasure your gift of magic!Susan S.
Bonnie created an actor’s reel for me in less than a week. It wasn’t an easy chore either with all the years of work that had to be compiled, and some converted to DVD. She was meticulous, creative and collaborative in her approach. Her ability to listen while guiding the client to the best productive is intuitive, gentle, precise and very wise. We are already planning our next project together. This talented lady is packed with wonderful ideas! I highly recommend her!!!Linda R.
Bonnie Keith and her photograph, green screen and video team did an outstanding job at our Star Wars Themed Wedding. They professional recorded the ceremony and reception festivities, effectively coordinating with the MC on the music, lighting etc. Everyone worked cohesively and timely together, making sure all loose ends were taken care of as needed, keeping us; the bride and groom unaware of any issues or concerns so we could focus on us. Lighting and music was on par, clear and timely. Everyone loved the green screen and Bonnie did a great job with the photos, she does amazing work. She listened to our concerns for having a none-traditional, nerdy wedding and did an amazing job beyond our expectations. Thank you sooooo much! If we ever have the opportunity to throw another crazy fun party, we will be getting in touch.Liz W.
MOST DESERVING OF FIVE STARS!!!
Bonnie Keith has to be the one person I have met as a business owner who deserves a five star review.
I’m confident that in school she was voted, “Most likely to succeed and get 5 star reviews”.
This review has been a long time coming. My overwhelming feelings of complete satisfaction and appreciation for Bonnie have caused me many attempts at how best to tell the world about her.
There is absolutely no question about her raw talent and dedication to what she does. To call her a videographer is demeaning and inaccurate.
Is she phenomenal with the camera? Absolutely, she’s the next Up and coming director of photography.
Is she an editor so precise and intuitive that her ability to capture not only what is seen at an event but the feelings and mood?
For sure, more so than Oliver Stone directing Django.
I grew up with a father as a director/cameraman..worked with prestigious companies in film like Miramax, Disney, and Universal. I know who is good and who is brilliant.
She Is BRILLIANT. When I say talented, I acknowledge she was born with this ability to intuitively see the bigger picture of situations, deeply empathize and care about capturing all sensory dynamics of the event.
Bonnie’s raw talent is not just that. She took this talent and has harnessed, honed, and worked tirelessly (and still does) to improve herself, perfect her skills, and listen to what a family, couple, person, or event coordinator is looking for.
I know %100 that when she presents her finished product and historical film from your event, you will be transported back to the emotion, joy, real ness, and essence of the day in addition to components you never realized were happening in the periphery.
The film you receive will be far beyond any expectation and even her own communication of what to expect.
When I received a small clip to present to my mom for Mothers Day ( which I compensated her for as everyone should give her all of their money in sheer appreciation), she willingly and extraordinarily went out of her way to accommodate and understand the personal importance.
I didn’t last 1 minute without bawling my eyes out walking down the Tarmac of Portland International Airport. I am not one to cry at all, much less in public. Yet I was so overwhelmed by what was captured and featured that I couldn’t help feeling physically and emotionally moved.
I called her immediately and said……
“You could have warned me that it would be so touching and that I would burst into tears”
We laughed together and I hope I adequately conveyed how much respect, admiration, and appreciation I have for Bonnie as a kind and caring person, but also as one of the most talented artists I have seen.
Talent isn’t always about the finished product. It is truly about understanding what product to present, knowing yourself, and not releasing it until you have driven it to perfection.
Lastly, her ability to bring forward her internal self, her care of humanity, and her empathy and perception makes her the true Artist.
YOU WILL WISH YOU COULD GIVE HER A MILLION BUCKS because she will give you your film and you will feel like a million bucks!!!Jenny B.
One of the most beautiful and knowledgeable camera gals I’ve worked with. Thanks to her Guidance! Patience! Kindness! She is truly Gem in the midst of this busy crazy world. Her impact is soft, comforting and full of Wisdom. Will definitely be looking forward to working with her again.Margarite Bedros
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: “To describe Bonnie’s work as phenomenal would be an understatement. I have seen her work, from acting to directing, creating to producing, since nearly the moment I was born. Bonnie’s passion for the camera and the subjects in front of it is unparalleled in her industry. She has the unique ability to take “the Average Joe” and make him/her a star on camera. She always delivers more than her “cost” and takes pride in every second of her work.”.Full Video Production Services at VideoMagic Productions.
Great work! The video is conceptually perfect. .What a great Visual Artist you truly areKeith L
Bonnie offers more than video production. She gives heart to her work. She has filmed commercial and more personal videos. In every one the soul of the message comes through. Her work is clean and edited for maximum effect. I can recommend her for your video production.Circe D.
Bonnie, the CD’S arrived yesterday and we can’t stop watching. Laughing at Jose, singing along with Gary and Melissa, Julius and Lynda and Bonnie R. Even Shirley Katz put on a good show.Christine G.
Bonnie is amazing!
It has been a pleasure to not only work with Bonnie but to also get to know her. She is a wonderful individual and makes beautiful videos that will capture and convey any emotion you tell her you are hoping to express with your video marketing.
I feel she went beyond what anyone else would have done for me in the editing of my video. She was patient, responsive, and willing to try different things to see what would work for me. She never made me feel like she was “done” with me, or needed me to hurry and make a decision so that she could finish the project.
I love her work as much as I love working with her. Thank you Bonnie!!!!La Mesa, CA
Bonnie the owner of Video Magic Productions, truly works Magic! She is professional and knows her stuff. She recently filmed live interviews with other professionals for a campaign that I am doing and I was so impressed with her knowledge and her willingness to make things look and feel great! The program that she helped get me signed on to- Talk Fusion has also helped my business grow. I am very appreciative to Video Magic Productions for all that they continue to do to help me grow my business and stay , CUTTING EDGE! 5 STARS from me !1 Will refer to all I know!Nikki S.
Bonnie is a magician when it comes to video. She is a true artist and makes you feel like a star in your own picture show. The consummate professional Bonnie strives to make sure you are comfortable and at ease during your video shoot. You will appear as though you had been in front of the camera for years even if it is your first time. Most of all she captures you in such a way that people really get a sense of you which is what it is all about.Carol P.
Bonnie is a dynamic entrepreneur who not only knows the details of her business, but uses great savvy in administering it.Paul Bovino
Bonnie, I was at my daughter’s today and somehow it worked â I think she just needed a little more patience with it. Anyway, this is my youngest daughter, Deirdre, and my best critic â itâs the reason I wanted her to view it. She loves it!!! She’s not crazy about all the backgrounds that are used. I told her that I liked the water and trees as I felt a calmness/peacefulness with them â she agreed. Other than that she really liked it¦ Thank you so much for this, Bonnie. It was something I was really dreading, and you turned it into something really fabulous!Linda J Woolf W M S
Bonnie created some great short videos for me to use for marketing. She is professional, very knowledgeable about her craft and the videos are great. I highly recommend her.Mason Rashtian
Bonnie helped us to make several videos to use for our website and with other online advertisements. We found her through HotSpot marketing. She spent a great deal of time with us through multiple retakes to allow us to say everything we wanted to get across. Bonnie also came in to record testimonials from our patients! Following the video shoot, she carefully edited the…morePatrice Rifkind, Au.D.
Bonnie was referred to my family by our track coach for the taping of a sports video for recruiting purposes. From day one our experience with Bonnie was above and beyond what we were looking for. Bonnie was truly a pleasure to work with always professional and very accommodating. Bonnie’s expertise was evident in her recommendations during production. We were very pleased with the finished product and we look forward to working with Bonnie and Video Magic Productions on future projects.Patty T.
Absolutely Great!!!! As a professional that relies upon videos to post on Youtube, Facebook, Blog, Website etc… I understand the importance of quality work. Before meeting Bonnie, the previous videographer did an ok job. But Bonnie did a GREAT job! She made me look better on camera than I actually am. I will continue to use Bonnie in all other video projects. As a matter of fact, I have an up-and-coming keynote address that i will have her video for me. AND of course, I do recommend her to anyone that ask me for if I know a great videographer.Christopher B.
I picked Video Magic after searching various sites on the web, and I’m glad I did. My video project turned out great.Arthur B.
Bonnie does amazing video! and is just the greatest person 🙂 I love working with her she is so professional and sooo friendly! Love her!!!Alexander H.
What can I say about Bonnie?! She is so sweet and patient as you work through your nerves on “game day”, guiding and prompting you through anything and everything that comes up. She works tirelessly to present you with a product that will blow you away and I highly recommend her for your business and personal video needs!Abi C.
I can’t say enough about this company. For someone as self conscious as I am , Bonnie makes the experience fun and painless. She gives me suggestions but ALWAYS makes sure I get what I WANT. She’s amazing and I use her for my bakery videos all the time. Highly recommend!Adriana A.
I recently worked with Bonnie Keith of VideoMagic on editing video of my daughter’s performing arts portfolio for college applications. I asked Bonnie to turn raw video material I provided from various types of recordings into polished finished products, using her post-production editing expertise to adjust lighting & sound volume and file size in addition to adding introductory text to each of three recordings. The results were excellent! Of the four people I contacted through the Yelp smartphone app, Bonnie was the only person that responded promptly and followed through with providing an estimate, answering all of my questions, and setting up a meeting within a few days of my first contact. She allowed me to participate in the editing process in her home office to avoid lengthy back-and-forth email discussions, so the entire editing process lasted less than 3 hours from start to finish. Bonnie was very professional, friendly, and flexible throughout the editing session. She is clearly an expert in using various editing programs to optimize the outcome. The price she charged was very affordable, too. I highly recommend Bonnie Keith and VideoMagic for your next video recording or editing project!David C.
I want to take a few minutes to send you a big hank you from my heart. Not only are you so talented, creative and a brilliant solution solver you bring with you compassion and patience (after the shooting is completed). making the video a perfect memory for family and fiends to enjoy forever. You captured the love and laughter. My family and i are so lucky you and ChiaMei connected and hit it off. How we have benefitted!!!!Marsha S.
I help people with Medicare and Medicare is definitely difficult to understand.
Changes are made annually with this program so I started a website to try and explain Medicare and the various choices people have with their enrollment.
I decided a video would be a good learning tool and initially tried to make my own and
I ended up wasting a lot of time and money.
My website developer recommended Ms. Bonnie Keith from Video Magic Productions
to make the video for me. I was told Ms. Keith was a professional, easy to get along with, and her prices were reasonable and fair.
I met with Ms. Keith at her studio and everything I was told about her was true.
I was nervous to be on camera but Bonnie reassured me that if necessary she could do retakes and use different angles from multiple cameras within her studio.
After I saw my first attempt at making my video I was not happy with my performance.
Bonnie suggested adding “sketching characters” and a little humor to the video so it would no longer be me just sitting there talking about Medicare.
I liked these suggestions and our subsequent “shoot” was much better and the added features were great. They made my video easier to watch and aided the viewer in understanding the subject matter of Medicare. I am very excited and pleased with the end result of this video.
Ms. Keith’s knowledge and creativity regarding video production has helped to enhance my website by making it lively and refreshing.
Bonnie provided me with her experience, her patience, and positive support throughout the making of my video.
She absolutely contributed to helping my website appear interesting and professional.
I highly recommend Ms. Bonnie Keith and her company Video Magic Productions.
Bonnie just finished editing some dance videos for me, which you can see on my website at EllaAppely.com. I love them! She kept them visually interesting from start to finish, and made me look good all the way. I can tell she did a very careful and meticulous job of editing them. She had an hour of footage for each of three four minute songs, and she really chose carefully and wisely to keep it visually entertaining. Even apart from the songs and dances, which are my work, her work is lots of fun to watch! And her rates are very very reasonable for the product I got! And she is really nice to work with, a pleasure to hang out with while I was doing something very important to me. Highly recommend!Elsa W.
Videographer Bonnie Keith is the absolutely the best videographer I have worked with for 38 years!
The bonuses of working with her are all the extras many of us don’t even think to ask.
1. She was and will always be an actress.
She takes the knowledge of how she appears in front of the camera and brings that eye to her behind-the-camera work. When she’s working, she’s totally focused on us, her clients.
2. She’s easy to work with.
She is eager to please while upholding quality.
She does all the hard work that goes along with multi-camera shoots and the intense work of post-production.
3. She gives us more than we know to ask for.
Sometimes, I don’t even think of something until later. When I view the video she produced, I am surprised she’s already done what I thought of.
I first worked with Bonnie when she was brought in to do a one-camera shoot. I think she brought in 4 cameras! WAOW! Anyway, I work with her any chance I get because she’s THAT GOOD… besides, she’s FUN and KIND!Brenda Avadian, MA
