Your Vision on the Screen
eImage Video Productions takes your story and puts it on the screen, because every business in Alameda has a story to tell. Humans love good stories and a video program can tell yours in a few minutes or even a few seconds to anyone, anywhere in the world; over and over again, if need be.
Video Production Alameda
We’ve been working in Alameda as a Bay Area video production business since 1984, providing video production services to major corporations like Hewlett Packard, Bechtel and Oracle, helping them get their message out. eImage produced video programs for State, County and City governments, including the County of Alameda. We’ve worked with small businesses and start-ups and in the process we’ve had a chance to work with subjects that span the human experience: high-tech, financial, medical, legal, educational, agricultural, spiritual, historical, political, and artistic. Our customers are always thrilled.
Solid Business Base
The founder of eImage Video Productions, Andy Linda, holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Motion Picture and Television Production from UCLA; his partner Angela Gamburg has a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Production from San Francisco State University. As you can see, we didn’t just pick up a camera and start a video business, we studied the subject. In other words, we’re dedicated filmmakers with technical prowess and artistic flair.
A Family Business
But we’re also a family. Running a family business means we treat clients like family too. We always make sure that their video program succeeds in the eyes of their audience as well as their boss. eImage’s reputation is everything to us, and we feel responsible for our client’s reputation too. Video production is not just our job, not just a career. Producing great videos is our life.

We Produce Video Programs of All Types
After decades in the business, eImage Video Productions has done a lot of everything, much of it right here in Alameda: we’ve interviewed leaders of major corporations, shot videos of prominent politicians, explained the workings of sewage and water treatment plants, detailed the principles of new inventions. We’ve shown how to disassemble and assemble computer components, how to conduct employee reviews, how to test dairy cows for tuberculosis. Our videos have pumped up audiences for the start of a meeting and explained to immigrant populations that local mental health services are available. We’ve made videos for students who apply for financial aid as well as for school custodians trying to get rid of rats and cockroaches. One program explained the methodology of Buddhist prayer, another what awaits you in family court. It’s been a fascinating mix, reflecting Alameda’s diversity.

Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production are the three basic phases of all our video production services. eImage handles them all for some of our Alameda clients, while other clients take our services à la carte. For example, you or your content expert can write a script, we can collaborate on one, or we can write it for you. Many programs don’t need a script at all and that’s OK too. Need a video edited that somebody else shot? We can do that. Or do you want us to shoot something in Alameda and send the raw footage to the editor? No problem!
In short, we offer the services of an expert videographer, a seasoned video editor, a talented video director, or an accomplished film producer in Alameda and the San Francisco Bay Area. Find out more about the people behind eImage Video Productions on our About page.
A Bit About Alameda
Alameda in Spanish means “a tree-lined path.” Alameda is also a city in Alameda County, California, in the East Bay region of the Bay Area. The name was in 1853 by popular vote. The city is primarily located on Alameda Island, but also spans Bay Farm Island and Coast Guard Island, as well as a few other smaller islands in San Francisco Bay. The city’s estimated population in 2019 was 77,624.
The original inhabitants in the Alameda area were a local band of the Ohlone tribe. The Spanish arrived in the late 18th century. The peninsula was included in the vast Rancho San Antonio granted in 1820 to Luis Peralta by the Spanish king who claimed California. The grant was later confirmed by the Republic of Mexico upon its independence in 1821 from Spain.
The city of Alameda was founded on June 6, 1853, after the United States acquired California following the Mexican-American War of 1848. The town originally contained three small settlements. “Alameda” referred to the village at Encinal and High streets, Hibbardsville was located at the North Shore ferry and shipping terminal, and Woodstock was on the west near the ferry piers of the South Pacific Coast Railroad and the Central Pacific. The first post office opened in 1854. The first school, Schermerhorn School, was opened in 1855 (and eventually renamed as Lincoln School). The San Francisco and Alameda Railroad opened the Encinal station in 1864. Encinal’s own post office opened in 1876, was renamed West End in 1877, and closed in 1891.
The Alameda Works Shipyard was one of the largest and best-equipped shipyards in the country. Together with other industrial facilities, it became part of the defense industry buildup before and during World War II, which attracted many migrants from other parts of the United States for the high-paying jobs. In the 1950s, Alameda’s industrial and shipbuilding industries thrived along the Alameda Estuary.
