Words from actual clients

I can’t begin to share how amazing our experience with the Inspired Images team was! Every step of the way was a pleasure to work with such a talented group of professionals. Lauren anticipated our every need and the entire Inspired Images team delivered so much more than we expected. The fact we did not have to go to LA  for a large sound-stage was Icing on the cake!

Rob Burns (Video Telepathy)

Inspired Images Studio is a great San Diego alternative to larger LA sound stages. I had the pleasure of DP’ing an infomercial shoot for Waldorf Crawford at Inspired Images and it went off without a hitch. The shoot was on the larger side with over 20 crewmembers plus talent and clients, so we were concerned with how Inspired Images could accommodate us. Well I was really impressed! They really went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of.

Not only did we rent the stage, we also utilized their very talented art director, Lauren Fehlhaber and construction lead man Woody Woodburn. Lauren first worked up creative set plans which Woody expertly executed. There was a huge cost saving for us to have Art and the stage at the same location.

We’ll definitely come back!


Scott Leslie

This was such a great location, the Inspired Images Team went above and beyond for our little crew. The prices are AMAZING for what you get. Beautiful studio space, beautiful outdoor space and I can not express enough how great the team was. We look forward to our next shoot at their location.

Delfin Spa

Lauren, Jim, Ryan, and Woody were the best. I had the refreshing pleasure to work with them and their studio on a feature film we were working on. They were affordable, very responsive, and offers a wide-range of services. The Studio is ideal for sound and private. They are all very professional, lots of fun to work with and very knowledgeable about filming needs. I highly recommend them. Do not go anywhere without looking int Inspired Images Company first! You won’t regret it.

Evette (Gemini Pictures)

Inspired images was a pleasure to work with. There is no other studio in the area I prefer to do business with. Their professionalism and service is beyond reproach.


Ryan Binse (Fast Glass Film)

Jim and his team have put together a first rate facility – which is every bit as good, if not better, than similar facilities found in Hollywood.

Brian C.

I wanted to share with anyone who needs video production services that I had the BEST experience working with Inspired Images. Not only is their work very professional, but they are very nice and easy to work with. The project they did for me FAR exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with the final product. Ryan is extremely talented and took my vision and made it a reality. I was truly amazed and what a great job he did and could tell how much time and energy he put into it. He listened carefully to my needs and what I wanted and delivered the highest degree of quality that completely hit the mark. I recommend anyone to use this company! They are just fantastic!

Michelle Wheelock

Thanks for all your help and hard work, no one else in Southern California could have delivered the product you have given us.

Brian Hogan (Popvinyl)

Ben and I feel so fortunate to have found Inspired Images.  It was really divine intervention because I didn’t really know what I was looking for exactly when I was checking out production companies on the web.  And indeed you were just right.  You have all been very generous with your time, talent and efforts.  Thank you again for your hard work in getting the set ready, in answering our unending questions and in all you did on the actual shoot day.

You will be glad you did!
