With an industry lead by defense, international trade, and research, the hardworking mindset mixed with a self-care positive attitude makes San Diego one of the best places to work, live, and exist. The beauty that coats every corner of the city provides an abundance of unique storytelling opportunities. Our team of local experts has produced content all around the city, allowing us to create San Diego video with global grain.

From global enterprises to fresh startups to distinguished big brands to local service providers, we have extensive experience working with San Diego companies at every scale.

Our video team does everything you need, including producing, scripting, shooting, editing, and mastering. From the outside, it may seem simple, but it takes years of experience and sharpened skill in order to deliver a quality story that engages the audience on an emotional level. This is why we’ve created cross-channel storytelling — a method allowing your video to completely integrate with the message you’re communicating in other marketing channels. If you want to create YouTube pre-roll video that provides audience awareness while simultaneously driving to sale on a Facebook ad only geared towards the people who watched the entire thing, then you’re looking at the right place. We’ve done it before, we can do it again. Not only are we creative, but we’re strategic.

It’s essential to produce video for a specific audience, so we make sure to backward engineer our projects by lining a goal with an audience before applying our local video knowledge in order to create video that resonates. Video that’s not going to be seen isn’t worth producing, so we have complete distribution capabilities, including media planning, media buying, digital distribution, and organic viral marketing.

San Diego tells the world the content they want to see, and we make sure to listen. This allows us to engage the viewer and drive conversions. Since stories are an illustrious vehicle to trigger action, we test and optimize our videos to ensure the stories we're telling are simple, surprising, and significant — the key to virality.

We make sure San Diego sees your video

By utilizing our media planning and buying divisions — as well as an extensive network of influencers and journalists — we're able to create broader video distributions. We can even optimize you video for SEO and help it find its organic San Diego audience on social media.

The videos we create always drive a message. We take the time to understand your San Diego business and your unique opportunities in order to create intimate messages that resonate with audiences.

Our creativity was born in San Diego

We love our San Diego video clients

San Diego is the homestead for all things innovation, culture, research, and manufacturing — making it one of the most unique cities in the entire world. In a town with so many globally impacting companies — especially in Gaslamp Quarter, East Village, Bankers Hill, and North Park — it takes quite a lot of work and ambition to stand out. That’s where TOP comes in. Our custom stackable content ensures your company gets seen.

The sole thing TOP is absolutely unable to do when it comes to San Diego video production is create cookie-cutter videos for every single business. Each individual business is unique, and since we have our roots in brand strategy, we craft custom-made videos to meet every company’s unique set of opportunities and challenges. We’ve been making video content for a long time; we know what works and what doesn’t.

If your have a desire to modify your initial video into various pieces of content in multiple different formats across a wide range of channels and platforms, we’ve deployed our Test> Optimize> Perform technique in order to create “stackable content” — an innovative new way to generate content that’s more efficient, effective, and scalable. Videos can now be apart of your everyday marketing efforts rather than only when the budget allows for it.

Why hire a San Diego video production company?

One of the may benefits that comes with working with a San Diego video production company is that we’re able to handle any necessary technical and creative details in order to make sure your videos connect with local and global markets. Hiring a professional with years of experience — or even one who studied or worked at UC San Diego or University of San Diego — is an easy and hands-free way to consistently drive customers to your business.

Working in San Diego every day means we get to capture B-roll at Stonewall Peak Trail and shoot cutaways at the Meditation Gardens. Our San Diego team has also executed creative work from SXSW to Cannes.

Where can I shoot amazing video in San Diego?

The biggest benefit of hiring a video agency in San Diego is our personal knowledge of key locations. From Mount Soledad to Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve to Embarcadero Marina Park — plus that view from Stonewall Peak Trail during sunset — we know San Diego and we know how to film it. We’ve also worked in major corporate venues such as the San Diego Convention Center, the Marriott Marquis hotel, and major corporate campuses. We’ve seen and done it all, we can get the story out of every location.
