About Us

Urban Samurai Creative, INC is an award-winning boutique production firm that is located in San Francisco Bay Area. We do travel and cater to any video productions that our clients need. In fact, we have shot multiple videos in 4 countries and all 50 states of the US.

I founded Urban Samurai Creative after spending a decade working with several talented production houses. I wanted to combine my marketing training, broadcast experience, and love for still photography and offer clients something unique: Award-winning productions with a personal touch. I assembled a talented team of video, audio and editing experts, and together, we are nimble, creative, and above all, create masterful productions – large and small.

Our work has been nominated for Emmy’s, and our portfolio includes shows such as Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes,” and ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss.” We’ve also worked with the major networks, including MTV, the Travel Channel, and CBS. Our corporate clients include Google, Bank of America, and Intel.

In addition to our extensive experience, my background in marketing and customer service guides Urban Samurai’s direction when working on productions – I’m able to see beyond the technical aspects and understand the audience and appropriate marketing strategy. This gives us an advantage that many production houses don’t take into account.

We love working with larger clients, but we also enjoy working with smaller companies and family-owned businesses. We have accommodated a range of production budgets, and we offer the same caliber of services to clients, large and small. Our job is to find the story and to bring it to life in a way that is impactful and visually appealing

Our production services include video, audio and professional photography. We travel to jobs around the country, and we assemble teams as needed, based on the unique parameters of your project. We are a licensed and insured corporation that can help you with ease.

Give us a call – we’d love to bring your story to life.

Yuki is definitely the man to seek out if you need anything made in the SF area. He is a great production sound guy, but also DPs and is also like...a really really strong hiker.

Seriously though, he is a solid dude, and a professional.

I had a shoot in SF a few months ago, and didn't know anyone in the bay area. Now Yuki is the only person I need to know... The Urban Samurai Creative team handled our commercial shoot from start to finish, and it was a blast working with them - Thanks Yuki!

Zach Wechter

Yuki is a true professional and always makes everyone laugh. He excellent at multitasking and works well under pressure. We have been working together for years, and I have had the pleasure of seeing this first hand!

Our company has used Yuki and his crew at Urban Samurai Creative for all our TV advertising and digital video work over the past 6+ years. Their work is top quality, they are extremely professional, and they provide helpful input in the creative process. They have a knack for getting the best from their talent, be that experienced celebrities or inexperienced amateurs, and it shows in the finished product. I highly recommend this company, and will certainly continue to use them.

I honestly don't know what else to say except that Yuki is the freakin' man. He's my first call any time I have projects shooting in SF.
