"Some people make videos for events. Michael takes the time and effort to make sure the video reflects the person. Thank you is a word often spoken, but seldom meant. My thank you, Michael, comes from the bottom of my heart, for the extra time and passion you put into my video, to explain my very complex life. I have had many people from so many walks of life, tell me that this was the best video they have ever seen."

"Michael's ability to balance undying energy, a great sense of humour and professionalism while working with our clients and stakeholders was amazing. While working with our 4-H members that had little acting experience, Michael made great effort to coach and mentor them through each stage of the production. From the technical skills needed to meticulously build scripts and edit hours of footage to the "corny" creativity needed to entertain a young audience through video, Michael has it all."
Terri Potter, 4-H Branch, Alberta Agriculture and Food
