Video Production San Carlos
We’ve been working in San Carlos 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.
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 San Carlos: 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 San Carlos’ 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 San Carlos 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 San Carlos 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 San Carlos and the San Francisco Bay Area. Find out more about the people behind eImage Video Productions on our About page.
A Bit About San Carlos
San Carlos (Spanish for “St. Charles”) is a city in San Mateo County, California, United States. The population is 30,722 per the 2020 census.
Prior to the Spanish arrival in 1769, the land of San Carlos was occupied by a group of Native Americans who called themselves the Lamchins. While they considered themselves to have a separate identity from other local tribes, modern scholars consider them to be a part of the Ohlone or Costanoan tribes that inhabited the Bay Area.
In 1769, Gaspar de Portolá was the first westerner to reach the San Francisco Bay. While early historians placed his approach to the Bay from the Pacific Ocean as coming over the San Carlos hills, present researchers believe this “discovery” actually occurred in present-day Belmont.
While the California Gold Rush of 1849 found no gold nearby, disappointed Sierra Nevada prospectors made their way to the region, bringing the first non-Spanish western settlers. The Argüello family retained deed to their ranch through the transfer of governments to the United States, and, in the 1850s, began selling parcels of it through their agent S. M. Mezes.
While the port of Redwood City, to the south, and the town of Belmont, to the north, both grew quickly in the late 19th century, San Carlos’ growth was much slower. Major portions were purchased by the Brittan Family, the Hull Family, the Ralston family and Timothy Guy Phelps.
The turn of the 20th century saw the layout of the initial town streets. While “Old County Road” east of the railroad track had been in use as a stage line since at least 1850, the present-day layout west of the railroad track was constructed in the first years of 1900. Cedar, Elm, Laurel, Magnolia, Maple (renamed El Camino Real) and Walnut were put down in this time.
In 1944, Dalmo Victor established the city’s first large electronics plant, followed soon after by Eitel McCullough, Varian Associates (Later occupied by Tesla Motors and currently by Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company), and Lenkurt Electric Company.
Establishment of these two firms was a factor in the quadrupling of San Carlos population in the decade after 1940. In 1950, when the population was 14,371, the city boasted a total of 89 industries: wholesalers, manufacturers and distributors, producing a variety of commodities from electronics to cosmetic. By 1958, the electronic industry comprised a substantial segment of the city’s industrial area.
