From Some of Our Happy Clients


Video is fantastic! Much better than past years and the Veterans loved it!  We’re going to show it to our employees this Friday.  Thanks so much, Mark & Patty!

Top Notch. I especially liked the fact that Patty was a Jane-of-all-Trades, since she is a producer and camerawoman as well as a sound technician.

Mark and Patty from Crystal Pyramid Productions are a truly phenomenal force in video production and support. From the first international conversations (we’re based in South Africa) Mark was offering tremendous help and going beyond what we were asking for. The footage he captured was fantastic quality, beautifully framed and exactly what we hoped for.

The facilities and staff he brought in to support our live via satellite cross from San Diego USA to Johannesburg South Africa were equally as accommodating and professional. Even our down-time between shoots was full of the Mark and Patty experience! Eager to show me their stunning city, culture, and history we had a blast. As ambassadors and hosts they were extraordinary. We have, I believe, moved from business interacting services, to good friends whom I hope to see again in the nearest future!

I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone wanting professional production support from the friendliest duo in Television Production in the USA.

Please consider Mark Schulze at Crystal Pyramid Productions. He is a reliable subcontractor and a consummate professional Videographer right in the San Diego Area.

He has worked for me at LM Orincon and for others at Lockheed Martin, as well as other defense contractors many times before. His prices have always been very reasonable and negotiable based on budget and the type of work he has been asked to perform.

I have hired CPP several times for corporate production work and I have never been disappointed. Mark and Patty always go above and beyond to make sure that every detail is covered and that all energy is focused on the goals that we have set. I have used them both when I was able to be on set as well as when I was not and I never had a moment of doubt that I would not get what I needed. Professional, dedicated, and personable. I would definitely use them again.

William Burdette

Owner, Steadfast Productions

We used the video production services of Crystal Pyramid Productions in San Diego. True professionals with an eye (and ear) for detail that made a big difference in the final product. We liked their work so much, we also used their services in Nashville and Salt Lake City. They were on time, on budget and delivered excellent footage. 100% recommendation.

Crystal Pyramid Productions rocks!  Not only are they consistent in their quality but they have over four decades of experience in video production.  

If you’re looking for a team to capture news segments, web video, live interviews, or even stock footage, Mark and Patty are the best in the business.

Suren Seron

CEO, Stray Angel Films

Mark and Patty are hands down two of the best videographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They made very efficient use of time and helped make it an extremely fun experience for the whole team.

The level of skill and dedication to getting the right angle, perfect lighting, and making sure that we had ample takes to provide editing a lot of options to choose from helped ease any concerns that we may have had.

When it was all done and said, I thought we did a great job of capturing our company culture and they are officially extended members of the ICM and TCG family!  

I look forward to working with Crystal Pyramid again very soon and recommend them to everyone.

Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

Sean Shahrokhi

Director of Communications and PR, The Control Group

As I have told some of my fellow producers, Mark (the human Steady-cam) is one of the most talented shooters I have had the pleasure of working with in my 14 years in this industry. The story for public television has come together well and we anticipate nearly 100 airings of that particular piece. It could not have happened without Mark’s eye – and let me add from a producer’s standpoint, how refreshing it is to literally not have to worry about B-roll! I know that when using Mark to shoot for me, I just show him the script and he knows what to get. 

G Henry

WJMK Productions

Wow. You went way beyond the call of duty, and I thank you!  Stellar work.  Man! Creative. Professional. You are true artists.  And the interviews… Great lighting.  Great Audio. The subjects were comfortable and forth giving. The field production was perfect both technically and humanistically.  Your professionalism in all aspects of this job radiate through the footage I just saw (and every interaction I’ve had with you both).  It¹s been a pleasure working with you on this and thanks for the passion that you obviously put into your work. 

C Weaver

Sunnymoon Productions

Our deepest thanks for supplying the crew, equipment and expertise for the Futurama and Simpsons lectures and for working your magic behind the scenes with the Comic-Con representatives and technicians to get us all of the footage and camera access we needed to accomplish our feat. 

The crews were pleasant and efficient and we were very satisfied with the outcome of the event.  We truly appreciate your efforts on this venture. 

P Liptak

Producer, Flying Shoe Productions

Working with the team from CPP was amazing! I had to do a pretty simple shoot (one-on-one interviews) at a conference in San Diego and they were absolutely fantastic.

I’ve had to book teams sight-unseen for work at conferences before, and many of them come overloaded and overconfident about what they think I need, instead of listening to me. However, the CPP team really knows their stuff and were totally prepared for exactly the job at-hand.

M. Hecht

Producer, Veterans Administration

I am very pleased that the shoot went very well, thanks to your outstanding staff, Mark and Patty who were very well prepared and attended to every detail.  Mark did an outstanding job in the B-Roll.  I cannot wait to see the edited version.

A Shihata, MD

Medical Director, FemCap

The footage was great!

Exactly what I was looking for and it made our piece stronger than it would have been without the footage.

Thanks again for all of your help. It couldn’t have worked out better!

L Feitlinger

The Oprah Winfrey Show

Our requests have typically been last minute with tight budgets and Crystal Pyramid has come through every time. You can count on a high quality product delivered on time and on budget. Now that’s priceless!

D Peckinpaugh

Former CEO, San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for a phenomenal job during the literacy shoot. You were SO great to work with – both in your skill/talent and your positive and can-do attitude. I always knew you’d do what it took to get it done well and with a great teamwork vibe.
