Our Vision of Bar & Bat Mitzvah Videography
Your child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah will be a memory to cherish forever. The accomplishment of learning to read from the Torah in front of family and friends is filled with emotionalism and excitement. The party that follows is a celebration of this milestone. So often so much attention is paid to the selection of a caterer, finding the appropriate entertainment, picking a theme and decorating the room; and in a mere five hours after the party begins, all you have left are your memories. It is our objective at D-Vision to help you preserve those memories for posterity with crystal clear images and sound.
D-Vision has become the premier videographer for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs in Northern New Jersey for a variety of reasons. We understand the traditions of this very symbolic event. Bonnie, president of D-Vision, is herself a Mitzvah Mom, having planned her own twin sons' B'Nai Mitzvah. Her philosophy is quite simple: to capture the true meaning of the day. If we are permitted by your temple's regulations we can videotape the service or the rehearsal. We then focus on the party and capture the excitement in celebrating the joy of the event.
At D-Vision, we pride ourselves on our unobtrusiveness. We use professional 3-chip digital cameras that create phenomenal images, even in low light. Our goal is to be practically invisible, and yet at the same time to capture the moments that shape a lifetime. The focus of the mitzvah video is on the traditions and emotions expressed on this very special day. Hours are spent on the editing process to make sure each detail is not overlooked: the twinkle in Grandpa's eye as he recites the motzee over the challah, Grandma hugging her grandchild as she gets to light her candle on the cake, Mom and Dad as they toast their child's accomplishment, and the total joy on your child's face as he/she is being raised to the ceiling on a chair during the hora.

D-Vision’s Photo Montages for Display
At D-Vision we also help to create wonderful photo montages to be displayed at your party on a large screen projection system. Our First Thirteen Years montages are unique tributes to your son or daughter. As compared to other companies, we will spend the time with you organizing your photos into a cohesive and sentimental journey. You can select photographs, digital images or video clips to include in your montage. We have a very large selection of music to help you set the mood for the emotions you want to convey. The montages are always on DVD, and we provide enough copies on the day of the event not only for you, but also for the “quvelling” grandmas and grandpas!
D-Vision’s Concept Videos
If you really want to wow your guests, you may want to allow us to create for you a concept video to show at the party, usually right before the entrance of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child. It is your own Hollywood production. We work with you on developing a script and several weeks before the event we will arrive with our camera crew to film your child’s Oscar worthy performance. Our concept videos are typically filled with humor. It can be related to the theme of your party or something that reflects unique characteristics or your child or your family. These concept videos set the tone for a fantastic party. Be prepared for a standing ovation as your child enters the room!!
You might decide to have your party simulcast. We set up a camera and videotape the party and project it either on a large screen or on our plasma screens. Your guests can see all the significant events from any spot in the room, live as it is happening. It creates a high tech atmosphere, which adds to the décor of your party room. We will provide you with the raw footage of the video we simulcast during the party on a DVD after the festivities are over.
Projecting your Videos
Since you will need a vehicle to display your montage, concept video, or simulcast D-Vision can provide for you all the equipment you will need for you and your guests to view our videos. We provide an operator, a projector, a large screen, a DVD player and our own sound system or plasma screens. We take care of everything for you, all you need to do is get your tissues ready for a “good cry.”
D-Vision not only creates memorable videos for your child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah, but also can provide you with Posters, Sign-in Boards or Sign-in Books, personalized logos and seating cards. Our Graphic Design department will create a unique image to capture the spirit of the day from the very simple to the elaborate depending upon your taste and your budget. Below are just a few examples of some of our Graphic Design Projects for our Mitzvah clients.
Graphic Design Examples
Photo Favors are one of the most popular features at today’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties. We set up a cloth background and take digital images of your guests during the party. After snapping the photo we print out each photo and place them in a frame for your guests to take home. Adults and children will be able to leave with a meaningful memento of your child’s party. Your guests love the opportunity to capture the fun they are having with family and friends. After the party is over, we will supply you with a CD/DVD of all the images we took

Daniel wanted to watch his Bar Mitzvah video again with me tonight. Robert happened to come home from work just as we started to watch. He watched with us for (his) the first time. We all enjoyed it!! Robert kept saying how everyone had a good time; everyone was on the dance floor!! He also said, “everyone’s video should be like this, not too fast, not too slow”. You did an excellent job Bonnie!! Rich is fantastic too! We all love the recap as well. You are right; the music is perfect for it!
Hey Bonnie (and Rich),
We loved Shayna's video!!! You guys did a great job! The ending with that great song and the pictures just matching up was perfect! You caught everything just right. Thank you again for helping us keep the moments alive.
Wow!!! We loved the video! What a great party...lol! The funniest thing of all was the difference between my physical appearance at the beginning of the video and at the end. If that's not a dark comedy, I don't know what is.
You did a fantastic job and I am so happy to have such a wonderfully represented lifetime memory for Corrie.
By the way, tell your hubby that I really appreciate the note that he enclosed, but the timing of receipt was actually perfect. All the best to you and the whole Durkin clan for the New Year.
Lots of love,
I wanted to say thank you for all your coordination and finding the perfect people to help at the party, and to tell you that you really helped me cope (i was frazzled!!). Also your camera man was everywhere and anywhere he was supposed to be and more. Also, the montage was perfect. If you got my first e-mail, just count this as a double thank you.
See you soon,
I can't thank you enough. The video is a work of art. See you in 2 years for Miss Emily's.
Love the video! I can't wait to show it to the rest of my family! Thanks, and let me know what info you need for Julia's Bat Mitzvah in October 2010.
Got the DVD's today, and they are wonderful! Thank you for doing such a great job. Tell Phyllis, I'm really glad I listened to her!
Thanks so much,
We'd just like to thank you again for your superb work on Matthew's video. We are still enjoying it and sharing it with friends and family. The way you blended the scenes and used the music overlays really captured the essence of the day and invokes great memories. We have already and will continue to recommend you to anyone we know who would need your type of services.
