Welcome to First Impressions Video!

Here you will learn about the many facets of videography—and what I do that sets my service apart. As the tag line suggests, there is rarely—I say never—a second chance to capture a special or critical moment, whether a bride and groom starting their lives together, recording a final farewell to a loved one or chronicling the history of a revered family member.

This motto also crosses over into the commercial realm: Capturing information vital to the accuracy and viability of legal proceedings, bringing an organization’s identity and brand to life in its designated marketplace, harnessing the power of video imagery to advance the fund-raising endeavors of charitable organizations; all these represent the core of First Impressions’ passion toward delivering a quality product to those who retain my services.

90% of my work is done as a “single person crew,” or “SPC” for short. This allows me to deliver excellent quality at a fair and competitive price. I shoot high-definition video using professional video cameras and digital SLRs, and have a full compliment of microphones (including two wireless microphone packages), recording and lighting equipment. Should any project go beyond the scope of SPC, I have a database of additional crew members that can be called in for support.

First Impressions Video is an Orange County Video company (CA). I invite you to explore the site and learn about my dedication and attention to detail across the spectrum of creative and technical videography. Please *like* the page, call or email for a quote!

Mahalo!

  1. Total pro. Needed a marketing video for our start up and Terry really delivered. Very cost efficient with studio quality. I was frankly amazed.

  2. Terry Wall is a videographer par excellence! His skill, knowledge, service, and determination to meet his clients’ wants and needs are exemplary. Terry completed a treasured memento of my Granddaughter’s 1st Birthday, and I am so grateful. All of your memories are in great hands with Terry!!

  3. One of our friends asked Terry to video tape our son’s memorial service and we are very happy they did. That day we were all in such a surreal emotional fog – not really aware of much of anything that was happening around us.

    We were so pleased when he presented us with the DVD of the service. It might seem weird but we are now able to look back and feel the outpouring of love toward our son and our family. We would not have remembered any of that without being able to view the DVD later. Until seeing the DVD, all we remembered was being sad.

    I don’t even recall seeing Terry at the service. He was very discrete and he edited the DVD in a thoughtful and professional manner.

    I am so grateful to have that DVD and blessed that Terry was there that day for me and my family.

  4. Terry shot a video testimonial for me off-site. From start to finish, Terry was professional, transparent, prompt and provided excellent communication throughout the process. Terry takes much pride in his work and it definitely shows in the finished product. He won’t stop until the job is done..and delivers on time if not before. I would highly recommend Terry for all your video needs. He really can do it all!

  5. FCCI SoCal had its Regional conference last month and Terry did an excellent job capturing the story of FCCI and its leadership. Highly recommended if you need support in the video area.

  6. I had a small portion in the FCCI conference and Terry put in the extra effort to edit for me my portion. Thank you very much Terry may the Lord continue to bless your business!

  7. Terry recently helped my company out on a rush project and delivered us a beautiful series of corporate videos that we’ll be able to showcase for many years to come. We had been coordinating with a video production company to help us produce a series of client and employee testimonial videos that we were going to display at one of the largest industry tradeshows of the year. Unfortunately, part of the project we were planning for fell through, and we had to significantly reduce the scope and budget for the project. When we approached the previous vendor about the change, their revised proposal exceeded our allotted budget by about three times. This happened a week before filming was set to take place. Luckily a former colleague had recently completed a corporate video project with Terry and put us in touch. Terry and I emailed back and forth over the weekend, and by Monday he had offered to not only come in and film on a week’s notice, but his proposal put us under budget on the project.

    The day Terry came into film went off without a hitch. We had scheduled a full day of interviews with eleven employees. For many of them, this was their first time in front of the camera, and they were quite nervous. Terry did a great job making each interviewee feel comfortable – offering advice on how to ignore the camera and coaching them through their responses. At wrap, I think everyone felt like Terry was a part of our company family, and we were able to capture natural, authentic testimonials.

    The editing and production process was just as smooth. We only had three weeks to complete the videos, and I was nervous about us being able to meet our deadline. Terry went through over 10 hours of footage and delivered the first cut within just a few days. I was amazed by how much great footage we had to choose from; the only hard part came down to choosing what to use. Once I’d provided my selections to Terry, he delivered a close-to-finished product within just a few days. But, anyone who’s ever worked with me will say I’m one of the pickiest people they’ve ever met. Terry never seemed bothered by my weekend and evening emails as we fine-tuned the videos. He even coordinated with our overseas graphic designer to make sure all the graphic elements were perfect.

    If it hadn’t been for Terry, I don’t believe this project would have gotten done, and I don’t think we would have received the same quality of work from anyone else (especially considering the timeline). The final videos are absolutely stunning. I look forward to working with Terry on many future projects and am happy to serve as a reference for him. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss Terry’s qualifications in more detail.

  8. Last year, I asked Terry to edit some footage and still photos into a promotional video for my real estate client. Terry took the media and turned it into four 30-second spots that ran—and are still running—on YouTube. This year, I asked a local videographer to capture updated video footage for a 2014 campaign for the same client. The footage was less than desirable and again I consulted Terry to see if he could turn “lemons into lemonade.” He not only accomplished this, Terry did it under a very tight timeline, making up some of the time we lost when the other videographer was not as punctual as he should have been, getting the footage shot, edited and published.

    Terry Wall is a consummate professional and very responsive. He listens and understands. Video for business is essential to improve online visibility. Terry can accommodate your budget and he delivers! He uses a consultative approach and will make suggestions to improve not only the video but its online distribution. His expertise, service and pricing makes him our go to resource for video projects. First Impressions Video is a trusted vendor for our company. Check them out!
