Project Details

Welcome to Crystal Pyramid Productions, an esteemed video production company headquartered in the vibrant city of San Diego, California. At the heart of our ethos lies an unwavering dedication to our clients, propelling us to craft compelling and innovative videos not only within the confines of San Diego but also across the global stage. Our commitment is to deliver high-quality, attention-commanding results meticulously tailored to meet the unique objectives and target audiences of each discerning client.

With a rich tapestry of experience, Crystal Pyramid Productions extends its services across a diverse spectrum, encompassing live events, streaming, documentaries, TV commercials, feature films, shorts, web streaming content, training videos, corporate showcases, trade shows, and even the glamour of Hollywood red carpet interviews.

We aspire to be the comprehensive camera solution for your project, offering competitive gear rates for half to full days, complete with the inclusion of a Director of Photography in every package. For those requiring a two-person crew, our offerings extend to both a DP/Camera operator and a seasoned sound technician equipped with a mixer/recorder, a boom mic system, and wireless lav mic systems.

Our journey began in 1981 when Crystal Pyramid Productions was founded in San Diego by filmmaker and visionary Mark Schulze, alongside producer/editor Patty Mooney. In 1982, they expanded their repertoire to include teleprompter ownership and operation, covering everything from in-front-of-camera prompters to presidential teleprompter systems. Their mission was clear – to deliver top-tier video productions for businesses, international to local, operating within more modest budgets.

In pursuit of this mission, they pioneered a completely tapeless, high-definition to 4K workflow. This not only ensured stunning image quality but also streamlined the editing process, offering a faster and more economical alternative to traditional film. Our dedicated team is available for contact from 9 am to 6 pm, Monday to Friday. Thank you for considering Crystal Pyramid Productions for your next project. Cheers to excellence in visual storytelling!

Sincerely, Mark Schulze and the Crystal Pyramid Productions Team

Speaking as an editor, I have worked with the footage of a wide assortment of camera ops and I'm always so happy to work with Mark Schulze because he shoots with my needs in mind. Want an establishing shot of a building? He provides it in five different ways, using a tripod, and every single second is usable. Compare that with the guy who is rolling while focusing or the camera was on when they didn't think it was, or they thought they were rolling and weren't, and their footage is shaky or blown out and I might be lucky to get one good shot. I highly recommend Mark's work. He's been shooting since 1981, has worked with countless studios such as Inside Edition, Discovery, History Channel, Travel Channel, and the list goes on and on. Because he's amazing.

Mark is one of San Diego's top Directors of Photography. He educates the client about the process of video production throughout the process and makes it fun. He is also the guy who invented the first mountain biking helmet cam back in 1987 to share the experience of riding. This footage appeared in the world's first instructional mountain bike video, "The Great Mountain Biking Video.", Mark' been at his craft for a long time, uses all the best broadcast equipment, and he still loves producing and shooting. And it shows in his work.
