Behind the Scenes

It was the wedding division of Envision Productions that started it all. When Paul married in 1994 he wanted a video of his own wedding, but his videographer cancelled two days before their wedding having injured himself. Luckily, Paul had friends who didn’t mind pitching in here and there with rented cameras. Knowing that his friends were invited to the wedding to enjoy it and not be hired as help, Paul limited their kind gesture and ended up editing his own wedding video from the footage gathered by many. Needless to say, he will not recommend that path to anyone. The wedding video company started as “Remember When…” Today, Envision has branched into three separate video and computer animation production divisions that specialize in event, commercial and corporate videography, post production, legal, real estate, web page design, film and slide transfers, DVD authoring and creation, international format conversion, graphics and 3D computer animation. If you have an idea for a web show or podcast, we can assist with our new Podcast Development services.
