SteakLocker and KickStarter

The Bob Hoffman team was recently approached to help create a video for an awesome new San Diego start-up company called SteakLocker.

I wouldn't claim that anyone in our offices is a "foodie," per say, but we know a good steak when we see one, so we were excited when we got the opportunity to make this video. 

Steaklocker combines the best of old world dry aging techniques with sophisticated modern technology allowing the consumer to control the process of dry aging and save at least 50%-70% on current retail dry age steak prices.

We weren't familiar with dry aged beef prior to this but when we tasted the steaks aged in the SteakLocker we were pleasantly surprised.  The aging process really concentrates all of the flavors into your meat, giving you all the tastes that you like about steak- but turned up to 11.  It was one of the best steaks we ever had. 

We put together a KickStarter video that gives you all the information on the SteakLocker and what you can do to help this start-up bring the best beef experiences to consumers worldwide.

If you have a Start-Up or project that you are KickStarting and need attention grabbing media to go along side it, Bob Hoffman Photography and Video would love to work with you. Give us a call at 858.576.0046.


This KickStarter's success has taken off. With a great product and our media helping to explain the process and benefits of the machine, this campaign has now doubled its original goal.

Plus, this weekend our media was featured on some amazing publications all over the web.

San Diego Business Journal | Top Real Estate Deal Awards

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2013 "Top Real Estate Deals" awards presented by the San Diego Business Journal.

Check out this video to see the recipients and hear from the Life Time Achievement Award recipient Tom Sudberry.

We had a great time at this event.  It was incredibly interesting to hear from all of the "movers & shakers" in attendance at this event.  Thanks to all of you for adding to our communities and for making them such an interesting and desirable place to live.

SDBJ | Book of Lists 2014

Every year, the San Diego Business Journal releases it's annual Book of list and it has become known as one of the best business reference guides in the San Diego area.  The book recaps and ranks different businesses across many different fields.  It is a very comprehensive list with a ton of information-  I recommend picking up a copy if you haven't done so yet. 

We were asked to record the announcement ceremony for the top contenders of the lists.  It took place at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park.  

The video below is a recap of the evening.  Feel free to check it out and view all of the recipients.  

Thanks for letting us cover the event and congratulations to all the winners!

USS Coronado Homecoming

 This past week we were invited to photograph the homecoming ceremony of the USS Coronado.  

This is a newly created ship that is being added to the fleet in Coronado Island.  The ship had been away with it's crew for over 11 months, so as the tug boats toted the ship into the port you could see the excitement and joy of the families start to bubble up.

As the navy men and women finally walked down the gang plank their families and friends who were waiting held up "Welcome Home" signs and ran in for giant hugs.  It's hard to not get choked up when awesome moments like this happen.

Check out the video below:

Thanks to Lincoln Military Housing for organizing such a great event.  They do such an amazing job fostering healthy community for soldiers and their families!

Retired Mayor Jerry Sanders speaks at NACE

Last week we were invited to document the February meeting of the San Diego chapter of NACE (National Association for Catering and Events). This meeting was especially special because former Mayor Jerry Sanders graciously spoke with us on the eve of the result night in the intense mayoral race this year.

He had a lot of interesting and praise worthy things to say about the accolades of our different industries as well as the potential for growth that is available to us in this great city.

Check out this recap of the evening below.

I particularly like two things from his speech:

a) How he say's there is no reason San Diego shouldn't be the wedding capital of the country.


b) How awesome he thinks the Craft Beer from our city is.  I happen to agree.

Just a quick plug, if you need any of your videography or photography needs met- I can give you a guarantee that our team can handle whatever you throw our way.  In fact, we would be so excited to take on your project because we love working with media and we love teaming up with cool people like yourself.  Maybe we can go out and talk about your projects over one of those Craft Beers we were talking about earlier.

Aerial Photography and Video

Want to see international tennis star Andy Murray the size of an ant? Then take a look at the photos below!

We at Bob Hoffman Photography and Video have had the opportunity to take our services to new heights.  Please don't stop reading after such a  terrible joke.

Through aerial photography and videography we can now offer our clients never before seen views.
Take for example the opportunity we had this past weekend to shoot at the 2014 Davis Cup at Petco Park. 

We use a quad-copter drone, outfitted with an HD camera, to soar, over-head to snap photos and record videos- highlighting a locations beauty in ways that most people don't usually get to see. The future is now. 

Give us a call at our office to see how you can take advantage of this new technology.

Women Who Mean Business | San Diego Business Journal

This year we, at Bob Hoffman Video and Photography, couldn't have been more excited for the opportunity to both record and be awarded at the 2013 annual Women Who Mean Business awards!

Each year, the San Diego Business Journal recognizes dynamic women business leaders who have contributed significantly to San Diego’s businesses.  And not to toot our own horn but this year we had one of our very own, Tara Hoffman, join the ranks. She is so happy to be included amongst such lovely and powerful women in this community.

Congratulations to all the recipients this year and enjoy this video we recorded of the awards ceremony.

Non-Profit Video Production

We at Bob Hoffman Video and Photography have a special love for creating videos for Non-Profits that are working hard to help the community and world around them.

Video is a succinct educational tool that can explain your organization's mission in an engaging way. Plus, it gives a face to both your organization and those you are advocating for. Often these videos are used as marketing tools that aid in garnering both fundraising and volunteer support as well as brand expansion.

The good works that many non profits are doing deserve to be shown and shared! We would love to aid in telling your story.

Here are a few videos that we produced for other Non-Profits in the San Diego Area:

Education Enrichment Services for the San Marcos School District

Community Enrichment through The Y and the Dallas Pugh Gymnasium

2012 ARTS Program
