    I work at ABC News and we had a last-minute project for which we did not have an editor. We're used to working with some of the best and quickest editors on our roster, but unfortunately they were all preoccupied with a separate company-wide project and we had two short days to finish what we needed. Simba Productions set us up with Rowan Davis, who was with us for 12+ hour days over a weekend (and it was right before mother's day as well!) Rowan was a great person and editor to work with, and we really enjoyed our time with him and Simba Productions. He was easy to dictate instructions to and translated them well into the project, knew where to input his own expertise, and cut together quickly/professionally and with great style. He really put together a better project than we could have ever done on our own. We are so pleased with the final product, and those that we shared it with who were not involved with the edit found it amazing as well and were very excited to share. Thank you Rowan!! We will definitely be coming back to Simba if needed.

    I have been bringing my video work to owner Albert Dabah's Company'
    for many years when it was known by another name and I followed him through location changes to its present location. I think this dedication speaks volumes of the type of work Albert's Simba Productions does.
    This is the only video production company that I've supported which gave back to me in the form of a job. Need I say more?

    The team was wonderful. They took my wild, unorganized ideas and turned them into a stellar product. Would recommend to anyone.

    The crew at Simba Productions is a great bunch. They are friendly, efficient and instantly knew what I was going for with the taping of musicians for our site.

    We got consistently great results that held together from one session to the next, got great audio and they made us look very polished and professional as a booking agent for NYC area bands.

    I've used them on numerous occasions and I feel that they are an extension of our own company as they know exactly what we're looking for.

    I plan to use them on a continuing basis.

    Simba productions is a class act establishment. The staff is beyond over accomidating and meet your needs first and foremost. They are extremely responsive, respectful, caring, and do a fantastic job when it comes to all things production. I highly recommend Simba Productions and don't have a doubt in my mind that every costumer leaves with a smile on their face because of the quality work and care they just received.

  • *****

    Throughout my career I've worked with quite a few editing and production companies to put together my reel...this place tops them all! Even when I come in with no clue of what I want to put together and a ton of footage they can somehow put together a masterpiece in a record amount of time. I'm so glad I found Simba Productions!

  • *****

    I enjoyed working with the Simba crew on two occasions. Albert has passion about his organization and it flows through his team. Everyone has a unique talent which is essential when it gets down to producing an excellent product. What I like most is that the organization feels like a family which is important when you are a small company and need the extra hand-holding.

  • *****

    Simba Productions is an incredibly responsive and creative company. I have been non-stop impressed with the whole team - especially Albert, Aaron, Chinh, Josh, and Jess. We reached out to them with little resources or know-how and they jumped in to help us realize our vision! It is clear that they are super committed to working with their clients in a non-hierarchical way, making it a very fun process.

    The staff are all artists - and are wonderfully patient and attentive to details. We are beyond thrilled to work with Simba Productions. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal company to hire.

  • *****

    Our firm has engaged Simba on behalf of 2 unrelated client "corporate sizzle reel" projects...and have just booked our newest client for same type of project..superb work, priced right and experience was so gratifying, I make it a point to refer associates whenever the opportunity arises. Simba shoot teams typically include 2 camera guys, lighting guy, sound guy and the shoot director is great...post production editing team hits the bulls eye when extracting best elements..

  • *****

    They were very easy to work with and helped pull of something no one thought was possible at the start. They were very detailed oriented and made the whole process of making this awesome music video easy and myself and Meredith are very happy we chose them and look forward to working with them again.

  • *****

    After getting a price quote from another video production company in the NYC area, I called Simba for pricing. They offered a lower price quote and I decided to give them a shot. Aaron and his team from Simba found a great location to shoot the video and they were easy and fun to work with. Further, Mike C. at Simba who helped with the editing was great and it was apparent that he was genuinely interested in his work and was not in a rush to get the job done quick. The final video product is great and I will definitely call them again if I need another video done. I would highly recommend this company without reservation and offer this unsolicited review.

  • *****

    My recent experience with Simba was excellent. Their level of patience and courtesy was admirable and much appreciated. They say what they mean and mean what they say. I was offered their respect and professionalism every day we collaborated.

    Many thanks to them all.

  • *****

    i hired simba productions to edit a very complicated 1 minute video reel (of a music producer/song-writer) and i could not be more pleased with the results. they were fast, diligent, smart, creative and found excellent solutions to any difficulties we encountered. i look forward to the next time we can work together and i give my them highest recommendation.

  • *****

    It was really easy to work with Simba. We made a 3 minute video in about 5-6 business days. Amazing effort, quick turn-around, and fabulous result. Priced competitively in the market as well.

    Thank you to the Simba crew! We will definitely be using Simba again for our production needs.

  • *****

    It was a pleasure working with Jess at Simba Productions. She managed the project expertly and the end result was a piece we were thrilled to share at our annual event. They were able to rework existing footage and turn it into something completely new. Their work speaks for itself.

    Simba Productions is amazing! I was looking for a production company that would help me film and edit a comedic music video. I stumbled across Simba's website when I did a google search for production companies in NYC. When I saw the quality of work that they produced on their website, I knew that I wanted them to work with me on my video but didn't know if I'd be able to afford their services. I sent an inquiry via the submission form on their website with my estimated budget and video idea. Not only did they reply promptly, but they were more than willing to try to accommodate my project and work with me on a tight budget. I went to office in person to hatch out the idea, talk budget more specifically and to meet with the editor who would potentially be working on my project. The meeting was so awesome. They showed me more samples of other comedic music videos, they started planning ideas with me for the shoot and I could tell that they were genuinely interested making my project amazing. They were prompt in getting me an invoice, they helped me solidify the dates and locations for the filming and they kept in close correspondence with me for the pre production process. When we filmed, they were willing to stick to the script I had but also had the flexibility to deviate from the script when fun ideas came to mind on set. The shoot went so smoothly and the staff was very professional and friendly. The staff also kept in close correspondence with me during the post production and editing process. Any suggestion or change I had, was accommodated and done in a prompt manner. I am very pleased with Simba Productions and I couldnt have been more pleased with the way everything went! Thank you so much for everything =D! You guys are awesome! Anyone who is looking to work with an awesome company, should check out Simba Productions!

    My company and I have worked with Simba on several video projects now and they have been a pleasure to work with. Everyone is professional and helpful.

    Working with Simba was great. Their production crew was professional and accommodating. Post-production service was very attentive and I'm really pleased with the end result.

    Dear Filmmakers:
    I had the pleasure of working with Al at Simba Productions last March. We were stuck with the challenge of finding with a quiet and discreet place to interview Steve Martin for an interview in our film. The Simba crew was amazing, very knowledgeable, inventive and just down right terrific to work with. Al is such a warm guy he really makes you feel at home when you meet him. Martin had his own makeup person, and she was able to set up in a nearby room, while we rigged up lighting next door. I love my own crew, but I might seriously just hire the Simba folks the next time I am working in New York for location or studio work.

    Simba is my go-to place for all things production! I've had my reel done by them and they've also shot and edited things for me. You're sure to get great quality and friendly, professional service from Simba. They're the best!

    Albert and the rest of the team at Simba were excellent to work with. The video they shot and edited for us was shown at our all-company meeting, and to say that everybody was floored by it would be a huge understatement. Keep up the great work!

  • *****

    I have used Simba Productions several times and I am always amazed how quickly and efficiently they complete every project. Really makes my life easier ! These guys are PROS !!! Highly recommended for all your production needs.

    IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE WORKING WITH JOE, DAN AND MATT AT SIMBA PRODUCTIONS. IT WAS A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME, IT'S ALSO HELPFUL AS A FIRST TIME FILMMAKER BECAUSE of the experience and
    knowledge of the staff. I would highly recommend this company to any one and I look forward to my next project. Michael Reid/2 Guys From Brooklyn Films

  • *****

    Matt, Joe, Albert, and the rest of the team at Simba were fantastic to work with. I knew very little about video production when I called Simba, and they helped me understand the process and answered all of my questions. They quoted an extremely fair price for what we needed, and were constantly in contact regarding the project. They followed through on everything we asked them for, and completed our project on time (and it was a tight deadline). I would highly recommend Simba for your video production needs.

  • *****

    I was very pleased with the work that Simba did for me in producing my speaker reel. The work was done in a timely and professional manner, and I was delighted with the result.
    My new speaker reel has received great response/-in fact, I was recently signed with a speakers bureau, and already up for some great speaking gigs.

  • *****

    Simba is very professional, highly skilled team, experts in their field. They create quality videos from pre- production through to editing. We have worked with them on our customer video testimonials, sales conference videos, and a few other projects. In my previous role at another company I worked with them on a full day of in-house video production training for our marketing team, Joe and Enge A came in to our offices and were extremely helpful and patient.

    The team is usually able to turn around projects quickly, but I would suggest that maybe they add a few more people to the team, perhaps admins and/or editing interns, so that if some of the team is out on all-day shoots there is more support. They are a nice group of people to work with and Albert always try to make sure the client is happy - he even had someone on their team hand deliver a USB of footage we needed when UPS failed.

    I highly recommend using their services for video production or training.

  • *****

    Simba Productions created an awesome launch video for our new sock line. The team was so knowledgeable, friendly, timely and a pleasure to work with. They were also masters in the editing room and made our video everything we were looking for. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them on future products.

  • *****

    Simba Productions is where I have been doing my Reels for years! Thanks, Simba!

  • *****

    I have used Simba Productions twice so far within the last 3 years. I am going to do another video with them within the next two months. First and foremost, they are great at what they do. Second, they work hard to try and make the project turn out exactly how you envisioned. Last but not least they are reasonable with their pricing while producing great quality videos. I highly recommend them for any projects you have in mind !!! They are Magical !

    I have worked with Simba Productions on two student recruitment and marketing videos. The staff is knowledgeable, fun and supportive. Coming from a small non-profit, I appreciate their patience and commitment to a high quality finished product.

    Looking for a Production house in New York is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It can be very daunting, especially if youre a start up!
    We thankfully found Simba Production online and after an exhaustive process of eliminating the other competition, we selected Albert and his team for our project.
    The Simba production team was amazing! They held out hand through the process, helping us find the talent, working with our copy writer and even training our talent with best use of the teleprompter.
    The day of the shoot went very smoothly. The production manager/director was prepared with all the shots that were required and was meticulous in making sure we got the right shot for each take.
    Having a team of people at the shoot made all the difference! You really do need a seperate person focused on audio, video, direction, photography and teleprompter. Don't be fooled otherwise!
    The editing process was seamless too! The production team was happy to work with us on changes to the story board and also threw in animation effects and sound tracks.
    The question to always ask is: Would you hire this Simba again? And the answer is a definitive YES! We did, and will continue to do so.

    Thank you Simba and Team!

    Their work is great and they have always met our needs and deadlines for the concessions program. Highly recommended.

  • *****

    The team was able to shoot in a very tight space and everyone kept cool. The results were very good, and the final cut was delivered quickly. Nothing but praise!

  • *****

    Fantastic experience working with Simba. The first thing that stood out to me about Simba was the educational aspect of their value proposition. In our first call they helped to guide me, which was especially helpful given my inexperience creating videos. The camera crew was extremely professional, and clearly experienced. They did a fantastic job guiding us all on the day. Post production was also easy. They made the requested edits in a timely fashion and delivered a great final product. I would recommend these guys to my closest friends.

  • *****

    The first thing I noticed immediately was their level of experience and professionalism even before terms on the narrative short film were worked out. Albert and the Simba team will work with you to really understand your goals and help you get there, and the production process itself was so much fun.

    Theyre open to creative collaboration and set on producing a quality output for a reasonable budget.

    I highly recommend Simba for your upcoming project.

  • *****

    Just used Simba productions on a remote corporate shoot they pulled together in a heartbeat. Great eye on selecting the shots and super easy to work with.

  • *****

    I enjoyed working with the Simba crew. I highly recommend Simba. They are pros and their rates are competitive. A full-day shoot can entail lots of stops and gos, yet the crew was always pleasant and prepared. No question I will use them again. Ronald Trahan, President, Ronald Trahan Associates Inc., Boston

    We hired Simba Productions to shoot a local video for us in July. For New York City, their price was reasonable. We were amazed by their diligence in communication, and the proposal Albert sent over prior to us hiring them. On the day of the shoot, there were some miscommunication with our client in which they showed up almost an hour late. Not only did the Simba team wait patiently outside at 7 am, they didn't complain, were still friendly and professional towards our client, and finished everything they had promised to do even with the shortage in time. We were amazed with how well they handled the situation. After the shoot, they were quick in providing us our content on Dropbox, and even took the extra time and effort to explain to us what everything is. They event went the extra mile to separate some clips for our client in a new Dropbox link as per our request. We really appreciated your help, and will be sure to hire Simba if we ever need to shoot another video in NYC! Well done!

    Simba Productions did an excellent job with a livestream for my organization's annual fundraising Gala. The staff were super friendly and professional and I'm very pleased with the end result!

    I had a great experience with Simba production. Very professional and up to my expectations. We completed two music videos. Albert is a very fair and nice business owner. And the atmosphere for the production was nice

  • *****

    Albert Dabah and Simba Productions bringing me on as co-director for the film, EXTRA INNINGS, is a perfect example of this companies efficient, creative, and cooperative Mission Statement. With years of experience in the film/video business they thought ahead regarding the challenges of time, budget and rationing the creative energy of the production team. I was grateful to be able to work on such a personal and beautiful script. And the positive and creative energy at Simba was a breath of fresh air in what is unfortunately often a cold and self-serving industry.
    They took me in as one of the family and allowed me to contribute my own ideas and suggestions. The behind the scenes team is a well-oiled machine which is crucial when you are working on low budget independent projects. Its always easy to throw money at a problem, but when you have a team of people with the experience and talent that Simba has, creative solutions flow and challenges are solved without breaking the bank.
    I have worked in the entertainment business for over thirty years as an actor, director, producer and teacher. Having the opportunity to work directly and intimately with Albert Dabah was a learning experience. He is so easy to work with. He takes in what you say with earnest consideration and gives you the credit for your ideas with no ego involved. This created a friendly and productive atmosphere both on set and behind the scenes.
    I highly recommend Simba Productions for any of your film/video projects.
    Sincerely,

    This review was written by a client of ours named John Bedford Lloyd:

    Simba Productions has produced my reels for over 25 years. Their editors are all highly professional and extremely talented. I depend on them to put together the best possible product and, in fact, it is usually much better than what I had originally envisioned. I can always trust their taste and aesthetic choices. The last editor I worked with, Rowan Davis, was able to construct my reel completely virtually. Over the phone he was able to edit everything and it was probably the best reel I have ever had.
    Particularly during this challenging time when I am not able to meet with directors/producers for specific projects, I am completely confident in the work done by Simba Productions.

  • *****

    Simba's talented production team provided inspiring creative development, excellent photography and editing, and enthusiastic support for my album promotion project. All on a reasonable budget. Bravo Simba.

  • *****

    Over the past several years Simba Productions has handled some very challenging audiovisual projects for me - large and small - in an efficient, professional, responsive, creative and cost effective manner. Probably the most difficult was converting (and partially editing) some very old VHS tapes into DVDs and then MP4s, making it possible for me to utilize the material in a flexible manner for promotional purposes. They were a pleasure to deal with and handled each job with utmost skill and care.

Martin had his own makeup person, and she was able to set up in a nearby room, while we rigged up lighting next door. I love my own crew, but I might seriously just hire the Simba folks the next time I am working in New York for location or studio work. Kevin Kelley filmmaker (HBO, PBS, BTN)

    Simba Productions is amazing! I was looking for a production company that would help me film and edit a comedic music video. I stumbled across Simba's website when I did a google search for production companies in NYC. When I saw the quality of work that they produced on their website, I knew that I wanted them to work with me on my video but didn't know if I'd be able to afford their services. I sent an inquiry via the submission form on their website with my estimated budget and video idea. Not only did they reply promptly, but they were more than willing to try to accommodate my project and work with me on a tight budget. I went to office in person to hatch out the idea, talk budget more specifically and to meet with the editor who would potentially be working on my project. The meeting was so awesome. They showed me more samples of other comedic music videos, they started planning ideas with me for the shoot and I could tell that they were genuinely interested making my project amazing. They were prompt in getting me an invoice, they helped me solidify the dates and locations for the filming and they kept in close correspondence with me for the pre production process. When we filmed, they were willing to stick to the script I had but also had the flexibility to deviate from the script when fun ideas came to mind on set. The shoot went so smoothly and the staff was very professional and friendly. The staff also kept in close correspondence with me during the post production and editing process. Any suggestion or change I had, was accommodated and done in a prompt manner. I am very pleased with Simba Productions and I couldnt have been more pleased with the way everything went! Thank you so much for everything =D! You guys are awesome! Anyone who is looking to work with an awesome company, should check out Simba Productions! -Latisha

    It was really easy to work with Simba. We made a 3 minute video in about 5-6 business days. Amazing effort, quick turn-around, and fabulous result. Priced competitively in the market as well. Thank you to the Simba crew! We will definitely be using Simba again for our production needs.

    Simba is my go-to place for all things production! I've had my reel done by them and they've also shot and edited things for me. You're sure to get great quality and friendly, professional service from Simba. They're the best!

    Albert and the rest of the team at Simba were excellent to work with. The video they shot and edited for us was shown at our all-company meeting, and to say that everybody was floored by it would be a huge understatement. Keep up the great work!

    My firm hired Simba to go on location (very remote location!), shoot, edit, and produce several video clips. They were extremely qualifed, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. The work product was superb and the client was very pleased. I will not hesitate to contact them on the next project!

    Extremely professional. Bent over backwards to get exactly what I wanted. Would recommend to any business in the area.

    Simba productions is everything you want and more! Not only are they extremely affordable, but also a pleasure to work with. The staff is top notch, creative, talented, and very accommodating. I am thrilled with my final product and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an epic production company to work with hassle free!

    "Simba Productions was recommended for their depth of creative staff and great results.  With a very tight turnaround, Aaron and his team worked tirelessly to create a cutting edge teaser video for our current airport retail redevelopment projects.  The video was just what we wanted and more! We've received great feedback and anticipate using it a lot over the next few months. Can't say enough about how easy Simba made this process. Thank you to Simba Productions for turning around this top notch piece in short order and making us look great!"

    Our producer hired Simba to shoot and assist in editing an 11 minute program celebrating Manhattan Christian Academy's 35th Anniversary. They were great to work with and the result is amazing. You can see it here: http://vimeo.com/55555010

    I enjoyed working with the Simba crew on two occasions. Albert has passion about his organization and it flows through his team. Everyone has a unique talent which is essential when it gets down to producing an excellent product. What I like most is that the organization feels like a family which is important when you are a small company and need the extra hand-holding.

    Simba Productions is an incredibly responsive and creative company. I have been non-stop impressed with the whole team - especially Albert, Aaron, Chinh, Josh, and Jess. We reached out to them with little resources or know-how and they jumped in to help us realize our vision! It is clear that they are super committed to working with their clients in a non-hierarchical way, making it a very fun process. The staff are all artists - and are wonderfully patient and attentive to details. We are beyond thrilled to work with Simba Productions. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal company to hire. • • • Simba Productions is an incredibly responsive and creative company.

    Our firm has engaged Simba on behalf of 2 unrelated client "corporate sizzle reel" projects...and have just booked our newest client for same type of project..superb work, priced right and experience was so gratifying, I make it a point to refer associates whenever the opportunity arises. Simba shoot teams typically include 2 camera guys, lighting guy, sound guy and the shoot director is great...post production editing team hits the bulls eye when extracting best elements.. • • • Our firm has engaged Simba on behalf of 2 unrelated client "corporate sizzle reel" projects...and have just booked our newest client for same type of project..superb work, priced right and experience was so gratifying, I make it a point to refer associates whenever the opportunity arises.

    Throughout my career I've worked with quite a few editing and production companies to put together my reel...this place tops them all! Even when I come in with no clue of what I want to put together and a ton of footage they can somehow put together a masterpiece in a record amount of time. I'm so glad I found Simba Productions!

    Simba productions is a class act establishment. The staff is beyond over accomidating and meet your needs first and foremost. They are extremely responsive, respectful, caring, and do a fantastic job when it comes to all things production. I highly recommend Simba Productions and don't have a doubt in my mind that every costumer leaves with a smile on their face because of the quality work and care they just received.

    The team was wonderful. They took my wild, unorganized ideas and turned them into a stellar product. Would recommend to anyone.

    The crew at Simba Productions is a great bunch. They are friendly, efficient and instantly knew what I was going for with the taping of musicians for our site. We got consistently great results that held together from one session to the next, got great audio and they made us look very polished and professional as a booking agent for NYC area bands. I've used them on numerous occasions and I feel that they are an extension of our own company as they know exactly what we're looking for. I plan to use them on a continuing basis.

    Simba filmed & edited our promotional video for PYSIS: youtube.com/watch?v=mAfa…     It was a great experience from A to Z! They worked with me to plan, were flexible on finding a rainy day to film... and the editing process was fantastic. I wasn't entirely comfortable on camera and it didn't show one bit in the final product. I look forward to working with them again!
