I'm Jennifer Sommer, a Director, DP and Video Producer based in San Francisco, CA. I work with cool companies to make videos that highlight their unique brand. I have experience in documentary style videos as well as short form commercials and product videos. I have a passion for business, tech and doing good and that passion shines through in the videos I make. 

I have experience working on projects that vary in size, so I've worked in all facets of production myself and I've hired pre and post production creators when the project calls for it. I also geek out about products and will likely be just as excited as your founder is with your product/business/cause.

While I grew up in southern California, I've been living in Pittsburgh, PA the past couple years and I recently moved back to California to settle down in San Francisco. I am currently available for freelance hire for work in commercial, wedding, documentary and promotional spaces in both video and photography as a DP, videographer or video producer/director. I am also available for branding and promotional opportunities on Instagram at this time.

TESTIMONIALS:

Jennifer is sharp, talented, hard-working, and an asset to any creative team. At Thread, Jennifer consistently delivered outstanding video and photography even when it required her to learn new skills as she got them completed. Her work speaks for itself but I was most impressed with her flexibility either leading the creative vision or helping teammates fulfill theirs. Jennifer was a pleasure to manage, I highly recommend her, and look forward to seeing where her talent carries her next.
— Ben Pawsey, Creative Director at Thread International
Everyone that meets her is also captured by her optimism and sparkling personality, regardless of whether they are having a good day or not. In my opinion, an innate entrepreneurial drive is one of the strongest character traits a person can have, and Jenny undoubtedly has it. Her unrelenting, persistent quest for success makes her more than qualified for most challenges in life.
— Mark Visco, CEO at Suitable
She was able to take tasking at multiple levels from multiple people and always worked hard to provide responsive, timely solutions to the myriad things we asked her to do… Jennifer meshed well with the rest of the team and yet was able to voice her opinions with confidence. She was able to dynamically adapt to schedule changes and even to conflicting tasking, while ensuring that the end product was excellent.
— David Bruemmer, Founder at 5D Robotics
Jennifer combines genuine personable skills with passion and intelligence...I was most impressed with Jennifer’s ability to handle multiple responsibilities with ease and grace. She would prioritize her list and overcome obstacles either by herself, and more importantly, having the maturity to ask those around her. The sky is really the limit with this young woman.
— Dan Casella, Former Director at Habitat for Humanity Pittsburgh
