Hello. My name is Lewis Hatkoff, the owner of “A Cut Above The Rest” Video Productions. We pride ourself on delivering the absolute best product for our clients each and every time. 

Having a strong Jewish identity,  I know how important this day is to you, I have such fond memories of the day of my Bar Mitzvah and I know how special having a video recording of this day is.  I use my personal experience, as well as my professional education, to best capture all of the important moments that you can revisit for years to come and send off to family all over the nation.

“A Cut Above The Rest” Video Productions prides itself on creating the best quality product, customized for each client in a professional manner. We would love the opportunity to work with you for many years to come. Please contact us if you have any questions and I would be happy to set up an appointment to discuss this further with you.


“”A Cut Above the Rest” Productions was a pleasure to work with, from the first phone call to the final discussion about editing. I found the videographers to be very respectful and unobtrusive. Lewis, the owner, is very accessible by phone or email. {They do} a fantastic, creative job. [They are] very detail oriented and even put a nice DVD cover together that represents the party, in the way you want it to. Prices are incredibly reasonable. Having checked around a lot, they were probably the most reasonable around. A great value, and so nice to work with.”

Bar or Bat Mitzvah Interviews – 

This is a special production we can add to any of our Mitzvah packages. A couple weeks before the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, we’ll interview the family of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah. We’ll spend up to 3 hours shooting these interviews in the locations of your choice (local). We’ll learn all about all of you, some funny stories, and everything that has gone into this day. We’ll edit the best parts of those interviews with photos and music to create a very fun short documentary that will be able to be shown at the Bar/Bat Mitzvah on a giant screen. This will be a separate chapter on your final video. 

“Thank You” DVDs & CD-Roms

We’ll take your Highlights Videos, combine it with a personal message written by you, and make beautifully labeled DVDs or CD-Roms for you to send out as special “Thank You” gifts to your friends and family.
