Commercial Video Production Company
So you're looking for commercial video production but no one seems to offer high quality work. Or you found a great video production company but they're way too expensive! At Impact Media, we've been creating professional, broadcast-quality videos at affordable prices for at least 16 years.
We fully produce your videos from script to screen:
- Script writing: Our award winning writers, with years of experience in the advertising business, know how to write scripts that both standout and deliver results.
- Casting: We contract quality actors using our connections at Southern California/Hollywood talent agencies (one of which is located right here in our building!) Our unique San Diego location allows us to hire quality talent without the Hollywood red tape.
- HD Filming: Unlike many of the online production companies that don't even offer filming, we do! We shoot everything with broadcast-quality, high definition cameras (perfect for television AND the web). We also use pro-quality lenses and a frame rate that gives our videos that cinematic, film look.
- Lighting: We own all our own broadcast lighting equipment. We use pro video light kits at all indoor shoots and bounce/reflectors for outdoor shoots. Lighting setup is FREE (as part of filming).
- Makeup: We source makeup from our pool of professional makeup artists.
- Studio/Location Rental: Professional video productions usually require a studio or other location to shoot at. We have a solid relationship with one of San Diego's most reasonably priced studios (located right here in our neighborhood). It's spacious, has a dressing room, restrooms, and multiple backgrounds to choose from.
- Sound recording: Equally as important as what you see is what you hear. We use professional quality sound equipment and crew for your video productions.
- Editing: The best video production companies use the best editing software. Our editors are well trained in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and more. Our editors also have a great eye for graphic design and build-out all graphics needed in your video.
- Voice-over: We cast and record polished, broadcast-quality voices from our pool of recommended talent.
- Background Music: We buy royalty-free production music for the background of your video to set the right tone and mood.
- Delivery: We deliver the digital file optimized perfectly for web viewing or TV commercials to the specifications of your cable company or broadcast station.
Owner and core of the business, Mark Hartenau, has been creating commercials, professionally, for 16 years. He got his start in production by freelancing for San Diego advertising agencies, which had naturally lead to the formation of his company , Impact Media, as he had begun working for both agencies and clients alike. He's been behind the production of many San Diego TV spots, national TV spots, direct response infomercials, corporate videos, internet marketing videos, and even produced an entertainment TV program that reached the point of national syndication in its 6 year stint.

"Impact Media was hired to assist me in putting together a public service spot for webcast, DVD production, and local cable broadcast. We had a limited budget and totally unrealistic deadline for the project, but Impact Media was able to work with us, and were both personal and flexible, and we were able to create a great spot in just a few days! I'd certainly use them again and continue to provide their info to colleagues looking for a quality product at a reasonable price."

"Impact Media made us a commercial that worked so well, we had to stop our advertising in order to keep up with all the new business."
"Great company, worked hard and delivered on time with quality. We will hire them again as required."
"The production was delivered on time and as per budget. Impact Media has delivered a true commercial quality. Their price can't be beaten. Finally, the script, the videography and cinematics where unique and comparable to Hollywood production. I will come back again."
