Who we are
Jersey Video Production is comprised of a team of videographers, editors, and marketing professionals who are passionate about helping businesses reach their goals.
SONIA SCHNEE, FOUNDER/OWNER
I am an AVID Certified Professional video editor with 10 years of experience working in the film & television industry and nonprofit sector in NY and NJ, in all aspects of video production. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. and High Honors in Film & Media Studies and was a recipient of the Maurice H. Rapf Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film & Media Studies. For Jersey Video Production, I oversee scripting, videography, photography, video editing, and distribution, including social media posting, ideal target audience research, outreach, and engagement for a diverse range of clients in various industries to help them reach their business goals. I also run a sister company called Jersey Indie which showcases NJ’s independent artists, small businesses, and creative minds. We write, film, edit, and distribute original video and written content which includes interviews and album reviews, promoting events via social media, and overall increasing visibility of New Jersey artists and entrepreneurs. Prior to that, I worked as HBO‘s New Media Asset Specialist and Video Editor/Outreach Coordinator for NJ nonprofit CivicStory.
