TOPAZ is a boutique, full-service video production company based in Brooklyn, NY with a focus on creating high-end commercials, branded content, and documentary work. We have a knack for creating gorgeous, personal, and engaging short-form video content in the realms of fashion and beauty, technology, real estate, non-profit, and more.
From conception to creation, TOPAZ guides clients through the creative development process step-by-step, even if you’ve never made a video before. Tell us your video ideas and we’ll work with you to develop a fully-formed creative vision. Then we’ll provide you with an array of options so that you can decide the best way to bring your inspiration to life. We love to collaborate!
Whether it’s an explainer video for a bootstrapped tech startup or a glossy documentary-style Instagram series for a major beauty brand, TOPAZ has you covered. Our agile team can accommodate a wide scope of projects from small, run-and-gun crews to much larger, high-complexity corporate shoots. No matter the size, we’ll tailor the production process to you and your project’s specific needs.
No need to stress—let TOPAZ add the finishing touches. Once we’ve honed and executed on your vision, it’s time to bring everything together in post-production. We provide editing, color correction and grading, motion graphics, sound mixing and sound effects, and other post services based on your project’s goals.
