Video Production Colma
We’ve been working in Colma as a Bay Area video production company since 1984, helping major corporations like Hewlett Packard, Bechtel and Oracle get their message out. eImage produced video programs for State, County and City governments. We’ve worked with small businesses and start-ups. 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. All to our customers’ complete satisfaction.
Solid Business Base
We didn’t just pick up a camera and start a video business, we studied the subject. 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. 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, making sure that their video succeeds in the eyes of their audience as well as their boss. eImage’s reputation is everything to us, and we feel responsible for your reputation too. Video production is not just our job, not even just a career. Producing great videos is our life.
Totally custom, totally dedicated video production for business; give us a call or drop us a line, we’re happy to chat about your needs and ideas.

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 Colma: 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 Colma’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 Colma clients, while others 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 Colma 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 Colma and the San Francisco Bay Area. Find out more about the people behind eImage Video Productions on our About page.
A Bit About Colma
Colma (Ohlone for “Springs”) is a small incorporated town in San Mateo County, California, on the San Francisco Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area. The population was 1,507 at the 2020 census. The town was founded as a necropolis in 1924.
With most of Colma’s land dedicated to cemeteries, the population of the dead—not specifically known but speculated to be around 1.5 million—outnumbers that of the living by a ratio of nearly a thousand to one. This has led to Colma’s being called “the City of the Silent” and has given rise to a humorous motto, formerly featured on the city’s website: “It’s great to be alive in Colma”.
The community of Colma was formed in the 19th century as a collection of homes and small businesses along El Camino Real and the adjacent San Francisco and San Jose Railroad line. Several churches, including Holy Angels Catholic Church, were founded in these early years. The community founded its own fire district, which serves the unincorporated area of Colma north of the town limits, as well as the area that became a town in 1924.
Heinrich (Henry) von Kempf moved his wholesale nursery here in the early part of the 20th century, from the land where the Palace of Fine Arts currently sits. The business was growing, and thus required more space for von Kempf’s plants and trees. von Kempf then began petitioning to turn the Colma community into an agricultural township. He succeeded and became the town of Colma’s first treasurer.
Originally, Colma’s residents were primarily employed in occupations related to the many cemeteries in the town. Since the 1980s, however, Colma has become more diversified, and a variety of retail businesses and automobile dealerships has brought more sales tax revenue to the town government. In 1986, 280 Metro Center opened for business in Colma; it is now recognized as the world’s first power center.
