Video Production Portola Valley
We’ve been working in Portola Valley as a Bay Area video production business 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.

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.

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 Portola Valley: 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 Portola Valley’s diversity.

A Bit About Portola Valley
Portola Valley is an incorporated town in San Mateo County, California, United States, which was founded in 1964. It is one of the wealthiest towns in America, per the American Community Survey among U.S. communities with a population larger than 4,000.
Portola Valley was named for Spanish explorer Gaspar de Portolà, who led the first party of Europeans to explore the San Francisco Peninsula in 1769.
The Native Americans already present were Ohlone and specifically the group (or groups) known as Olpen or Guemelento but these were later moved to Mission Dolores and Mission Santa Clara de Asís which claimed the land and peoples. The area’s written history dates back to 1833, when a square league of land was given to Domingo Peralta and Máximo Martínez by Governor José Figueroa to form the Rancho Cañada del Corte de Madera. In those days it was used for lumbering and cattle grazing. By the 1880s Andrew S. Hallidie, a wire rope manufacturer, had built his country home of Eagle Home Farm in what is now Portola Valley. He built a 7,341 foot long aerial tramway from his house to the top of Skyline in 1894 though it was removed after his death in 1900.
In 1886 the name Portola-Crespi Valley was bestowed on the area from the then community of Crystal Springs (now under Crystal Springs Reservoir to the then community of Searsville (in the area of the present day Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve); Crespi is for Juan Crespí, a Franciscan friar with the Portolà expedition.
The town was incorporated in 1964. Bill Lane was the first mayor.
