Building a luxury watch empire: Seller Spotlight

Today we'd like to feature a video that we didn't make! Well, something we filmed but didn't edit.

Recently eBay featured our long-time client and friend of the studio, Roman Sharf. His business Luxury Bazaar was effectively launched on the eCommerce platform and they wanted to tell his "refugee" story.

Their video team wanted to interview Roman and film some "day in the life" footage and brought us in to collaborate. We filmed and tethered our cameras to zoom so that their director and director of photography could see the shots we were getting and remote direct.

Fortunately, we have been working with Roman for years creating content for his VLOG and now consulting behind the scenes with his in-house video for his successful watch Vlog "Grey Market". With that inside knowledge, we were able to help drive the creativity and are proud to be a part of this piece!

Special thanks to Edward David and Transient Pictures for their help on this project! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f01C8W1WJg

Roman immigrated from the Soviet Union as a teenager, and says he has worked every job under the sun. He left his career at a Fortune 500 company to pursue h...

Share Food Program

Every night in Philly, 1 in 5 people go to bed hungry. However, there’s enough food in the world to feed every person 4x over. How can we bridge this gap between supply and demand for food?

To help solve this issue, Philly Food Rescue & Share Food Program are teaming up to reduce food insecurity in our region. Their new app allows restaurants, grocery stores, and even chains like Wawa to deliver surplus food to local nonprofits. That way more people can have access to fresh food and less of it ends up in a landfill.

Learn more about how Share Food Program is helping to combat hunger in the Philadelphia region: https://www.sharefoodprogram.org/

Taking in the calming sites and sounds of Share Food Program's Nice Roots Farm and Orchard. This was part of Steveanna Wynn's incredible legacy, an urban oasis right in the middle of Philly, fighting hunger every day.

About Us

Video City Productions began in 1982 as a neighborhood video rental store. Founder Joseph Sherman, a professional violinist by trade, began the business in a small 600 square foot space on 20th and Delancey. Back then, it was just called Video City; they kept rental records on paper, and people still weren’t sure whether they should buy Beta or VHS…

In only a few short years, Video City expanded to include more space, more inventory, and more services. The “mom and pop” video store began offering 8mm film transfer, video tape copies, photo montage videos, and even some on-location videography. Years of transferring and editing home videos naturally led us to ask the question, “What if we started shooting this stuff right?” Today Video City Productions provides some of the highest quality videography services in the Philadelphia area.
