Hero Labs 1451 169th Place NE Bellevue, WA 98008 (206) 841-2029

We operate from a home/office in Bellevue, WA. Translated that means, you're paying for video production, but saving money on mauve carpeting and downtown office rentals.  Our gear includes a Panasonic DVCPRO HVX200 Hi-Def camera package with lights, mics, cords, cables, clapperboards, and what not. If we don’t have what you need, then know that we have great rental agreements with local vendors and can bring virtually any equipment to the production. We are available by appointment and have a drop box for convenient pick-up and delivery.  Please shoot us a line, or give us a ring so we can pump you full of info to make your project rock.

Staci Bernstein, director and our fearless leader, has always had a hand in community building. Many of her clients come from the nonprofit sector where she has been an active leader and advocate for the arts.  She’s been directing and producing professionally since 1991 with notable clients such as Microsoft Studios, Seattle Center, Sierra On Line and NHK, one of Japan's leading networks. She teaches in many venues where she infuses others with her zeal for the production process.

David Bernstein, lead producer, was a wiz kid, and began making films and videos in 1980. Since then he’s worked on feature films, produced corporate videos and an MTV television broadcast that won him awards and critical acclaim… all this while pursuing an illustrious career in software development and instructional design.

Our History: An Endless Series of Name Changes
  • Small Planet Productions: In 1991 Staci Simpson teamed up with Malory Graham to start Small Planet Productions, a company dedicated to supporting artists and nonprofit's with video production services.
  • IMAGO: In 1994 She sold her share of the company and started freelancing as IMAGO and taking on a broader range of clients.
  • ArtSpots: On the side, she founded ArtSpots. In an effort to bring attention to the strength of the local film, this non-profit program produced media art, which broadcast on local commercial television channels such as KING, KIRO, and WB22.
  • Magic Baby Productions: Magic Baby Productions was founded by David Bernstein in 1996. In 1999 Staci & David met, fell in love and realized they could bring you a broader range of services and skills by working together. They merged their companies and their lives to become a husband and wife team operating under the Magic Baby name.
  • Hero Labs: In 2006 we updated our name to Hero Labs, because we wanted an identity that reflected our friendly nature, passion for a well-told tale, and desire to make you shine.
