We couldn’t be happeir with the results of our wedding video from Pixelab Studios. Brandon & Shana were awesome to work with and created exactly what we were imagining for our wedding video. They were very professional and responsive with all of the planning prior to the wedding. Throughout the wedding they continued to impess, capturing all of the important shots without blocking views of guests or photography. Finally, the finished product was done early & we loved it! I would definitely recommend Pixelab to future couples looking for a great keepsake from their wedding. It was definitely worth the investment.

Brandon’s visual interpretation of Gala surpassed even my highest expectations. Each frame – from concept to execution – was carefully constructed, and every shot, light, and sequence was considered both individually and within context of the entire film. His knowledge, efficiency and overall professionalism on set greatly improved the final result. Brandon is a true partner in creativity, and a master of the visual arts.
I have had the distinguished honor of having Brandon Roudebush be the director of photography on films I have been involved with. Two of which are featured permanently on my reel. He is professional, exact, and very easy to get along with. He finishes projects on time if not ahead of time and always takes a genuine interest in addressing and resolving the sometimes taxing particulars of projects. And he has a very clear camera “eye” knowing both his camera and equipment, and all the necessary tools along the way intimately. I would hire him again for projects in the future, in fact I just did for our production of the haunted house, and I would recommend him to any serious producer.

Brandon did an amazing job capturing all the aspects of the Cupid’s Undie Run, which is a big task. In just a few minutes, he was able to highlight an event that was both inside and outside, was both a party and a huge fundraiser for a serious cause… all of the things we wanted he was able to provide in a timely and professional manner.
Rachael Olbeter, Cupid's Undie Run
Brandon and his team were efficient and friendly and amazing to work with. He got the video done in a timely manner and with amazing production quality. We are very impressed with his work and his professionalism and we will recommend him to anyone.
Suzanne Gladstone, McGonigle & Gladstone
Pixelab Studios is a blessing to me for helping put together our amazing video. I would never choose another production company.
Shawn Kenney, W.I.S.H
All positives! From setting everything up to the final product. Everything was fantastic. The cinematic video was absolutely beautiful!
Jessica Kovacs, Bride
Pixelab Studios is by far one of the best companies we have worked with as a business. In filming the documentary for my business, Reclamation Brewing Company, Brandon not only showed that he was a master of his craft, but also that he is a visionary. We basically handed him the reigns and he steered – always able to see what is what we were shooting for. Brandon is a great storyteller and an excellent film-maker. We would recommend Pixelab Studios highly to anyone in need of video work of any kind!
Was very impressed with the professionalism and quality of work. From start to finished product it was a great experience working with you guys!

By | February 29th, 2016|Projects|

After one month of Kickstarting, six months of planning and four days of filming, we created Gala with an incredible team of filmmakers from around the country. To celebrate the upcoming LA & NYC screenings of "Gala", we've released the "behind the scenes" featurette for the film that was originally only available to Kickstarter backers! “Gala” centers around a lonely writer on the night of his high school reunion. Though so far unsuccessful at getting his ‘big break’, his ex-girlfriend Faye has become an up-and-coming actress in Los Angeles. After being apart for two years, the writer imagines what it will be [...]
