Austin >American Video Productions
Very friendly people - great video. American Video Productions taped our wedding in December, 2008. They were very friendly and did a nice job. I still cry each time I watch the DVD. I am happy we had it taped and will refer my friends to them.
Brides & others: BEWARE. AVP operates in many Texas cities according to website. We first opted not to hire them (high prices). Later, decided to...after receiving email about a "sale/discount." We got the Liberty Pkg (reg.value $1,650). Met Bruce Blackwell (owner) to confirm package contents, quality, length, etc. He said reception would be at least 2 hrs on DVD (my husband's band was playing live). He said 1 song was needed for montage & song choice & wedding party's names should be sent ahead; we sent ALL info, & gave phone/email for our coordinator/facility. Bruce said he or his wife would be at our rehearsal to ensure proper placement of cameras, proper coverage of special moments, etc., but neither showed @ rehearsal. DVD's came 2 months late. TOTAL length < 1.5 hrs (INCL. photo montage). DVD had close-ups of ears, backs, & guests' bottoms. Montage incl. 2nd song which we didn't request (nor did we approve). AVP didn't consult with coordinator/facility (as incl. in package), so impt parts of ceremony were missed (ie: my son's family vows weren't captured). Also, a man grabbing his girlfriends' buttom during ceremony wasn't edited out (so now we can't share DVD with family); camera handling & editing was low quality & NOT reflective of a product worth $1,650; reception footage <1 hour. Also, DVDs didn't have any titles/menu info with our wedding party's names, as promised. Specific details of our complaints (incl time location on DVD) were sent to AVP/Bruce via emails, and we requested a refund several times. He refused to refund money OR provide raw footage so we can obtain professional editing; he even stated he can't find any problems with the footage; we even provided exact time locations on the DVD where the buttocks, ears, and other body parts were inappropriately recorded on our wedding video. In our opinion, we did not receive the product described as the Liberty Package on the company's website, nor do we feel we received the quality of product described on that website.
