Above All Productions is a transmedia oriented video production and postproduction company located in the heart of New York City’s East Village. It was founded by filmmaker Mauricio Soto in 2007 and since then it has served a wide range of clients from various industries.
We specialize in
short form video
for the web and apps.
Be it a promo, a commercial, or announcement, we can make it stand out and leave a lasting impression. This is achieved by focusing on documentary and narrative storytelling that is well shot and edited.
Above all, we want to inspire and be inspired.
From storyboarding and budgeting to shooting and editing, we can successfully take your project through all the stages of production and post-production.
When you come to Above All Productions with an audio-visual project, we will put together a team of seasoned and creative producers, designers, video photographers and editors capable of effectively communicating your message.
Our clients include magazines, presidential campaigns, websites, corporations and non-profit organizations. We are used to working in small crews and can easily maneuver between still image production and motion picture production. Most of the projects we have worked on can be seen on magazine websites, blogs, social media websites, company or personal websites, and apps. In short, our varied experience in the video / film / tv, photography / print, and web industries make us best suited to help you bridge the gap between print publishing and movies.
“Mauricio and his company are hardworking and professional. I have no worries when he is taking care of a job. He is versatile in many environments and brings creativity and passion without sacrificing professionalism. I would highly recommend Above All Productions for all your video and digital production needs.” Karen Pearson (Photographer)
“We hired Mauricio for several video projects over a period of a couple of years. Results were terrific. My colleagues in the UK were always envious of the work he produced for us. Definitely recommend him.” William Dentzer (Arup)
Co-producing with us: Above All also works well with other production companies or agencies and can co-produce or work in one or more capacities. For example, on occasion we are hired to do the video photography part of a project, sometimes it is to do the Digital Tech on photography shoots, or otherwise we do the editing and color correction. Either way we always put our heart and motivation to get the job done to the client’s expectations.
Above All owns the video and photography equipment, complete with cameras, lighting, sound, monitors and computers that could be needed for the project at hand. We accept short notice jobs and are willing to travel.
Above All is fully insured for liability, workers comp and to rent extra equipment when necessary. We have D.I.C.E (Documentary, Industrial, Commercial & Educational) insurance which provides coverage for the full spectrum of still, film and video productions.
