    Azalea and Wesley's Wedding review
    Mark was a great choice to videograph my wedding! He was professional, showed up to meetings on time, and delivered everything I asked for at a great price!

    First let me say that without Thumbtack, I might never have found Mark Corby and Media 41. Thank you for that! The skills needed to provide video coverage and editing for a play are unique. Mr. Corby did an excellent job of coverage and editing. From the first contact with Media 41, the level of professionalism was exactly as it should be. He has a terrific web page where you can see exactly what sort of an “eye” he has. That was the first positive selling point to find someone to video a play. From the contract to the finished product, Mr. Corby took our project, a community theatre play presented in Green Valley at Quail Creek, and gave it serious planning, enthusiasm, and artistic integrity. The cast and crew now have a dvd that they can proudly share with friends and family. I look forward to working with Mark Corby at Media 41 again and I would HIGHLY recommend him.

    Mark was my videographer for our wedding in Sedona, AZ. He made a point to meet with me beforehand to get to know me and my fiance (our style, story, etc). This was a great experience in and of itself. Then, he traveled from Phoenix to Sedona and did video for my rehearsal and my wedding day both. He was nice to my friends and family, and was one of the reasons my wedding went off so seamlessly. I would highly recommend Media 41 over any other videographer in the valley.

    Mark did a video of a live performance of our play. He also spent time the week before the show interviewing our cast and getting to know the theme of our play. Mark went above and beyond our expectations. He provided excellent customer service. He was on time and his product - a video in HD DVD and BLUE Ray DVD was a fantastic video. I highly recommend his service.

    This was the first time the idea of adding special features to a full feature DVD for a client was used. Since the Lake Montezuma Women's Civic Club is also in the business of raising funds for children and their community, it was a no-brainer to offer it in order to help increase their DVD sales. The opportunity to work with such talented and inviting folks, along with helping them get what they desired on video was a real treat and very refreshing! :)

    Mark was responsive and arrived on time for our event. He was extremely professional to all. After the event the photos were provided to me straight away. His patience during the video editing process was greatly appreciated and his advice and expertise priceless. I will definitely work with him again.

    Daphne is a prime example of how true, straight-to-the-point collaboration makes all the difference. It allows me, especially as an editor, to bring out aspects that take the eyes of the client to see. Helping me to provide exactly what she is looking for, wants and needs. Just a joy to work with and I look forward to doing it all again! Thank you Daphne, they're very lucky to have you on their team! :)

    We hired Mark for our wedding in August. I was so nervous about hiring a videographer we didn't know. Mark met with us and was very professional . He planned out where he would be for the ceremony during out meeting based on the layout . He also contacted the facility and worked with our photographer . Of course I nervously emailed him . Mark was very good about responding promptly and was there at the wedding when he said he would be . He even got me a mini preview 5 days after the wedding it was awesome . Mark even worked with me on the second video to make sure we loved it. He is truly an artist! I will definitely recommend him again and again.

    My real estate company posted on thumbtack looking for someone to do video work, so our Yelp ad would create a more personal connection with the prospective client. Mark promptly responded to the ad and so I called him personally the next day. He seemed easy to work with and sounded like he’d work hard to get things done in a timely basis. We worked together the next day to shoot the video. He was on time, open to my own suggestions, and couldn’t have been easier to work with. Without me asking, he worked through the weekend and got me the promo within 2 days. I couldn’t be more impressed with his work ethic, his turn around time and the quality of his work. I’ve found his fees very reasonable as well. I’ll definitely be doing more business with Mark in the future, and would highly recommend his services to others.

    Another dream client! I told Dan when we first spoke that my best work comes from real collaboration. He went to task. Dan already has an eye for detail being a business owner himself, as well as a real estate professional. He knew exactly what he wanted to convey and by working together we got him the message he was not only satisfied with, but the message he helped to produce. Thanks Dan!

    Mark Corby and his team did a wonderful job filming my wedding. I originally contacted him because my grandfather couldn't make it to the wedding and I wanted him to be able to see it.Mark Corby and his team went above and beyond to capture every moment. My wedding was the ultimate fairytale and he definitely captured all the love and joy in his film. :) Awesome work guys! Keep on rolling!

    I really enjoyed working with Mark on the video of our Barbershop show! He was very professional, used multiple cameras, and edited all together to make an enjoyable presentation. Communication with him was the best email experience I've had, very responsive. Through out the editing process he kept me informed of his progress. From videoing to final product took a week and 4 days. (calendar days)

    Alan is one organized - and talented - customer. He and his fellow chordsmen were a joy to work with and kept me on my toes! They're funny, sound great, and made my job so worthwhile. The greatest generation for sure! :)

    It's one thing to simply help a client get his or her message out there, it's another when you're helping and you truly have a creative desire to get it out there the best way you know how - because the client is truly deserving of it. You believe in what he or she does for a living, fall in love with their story, become a kind of coach or ardent fan. I am a new fan of Robin and her team. They work so hard, are talented at what they do and the feedback I have read from others (her clients) on the WWW just brings it all home. Some are in business to simply make money. Others are in business for what money can't give: the joy of sharing a story like Robin's and the real appreciation she now has. Working with someone like Robin brings it all together and I definitely feel that it was a win-win for us all. :)

    I responded to Mark Corby's bid on Thumbtack which involved producing 2 DVDs on the Celebration of each of my parent's life as I found his price very reasonable. I provided Mark with numerous pictures for each DVD which required Mark to scan each of them to enable arrangement into a slide presentation format. I also provided Mark with each of my parent's favorite music selections and an audio voice recording from each describing how they wanted to be remembered and their most memorable times in life. Mark did an exceptional job in arranging the pictures with each of their voice recordings as well as incorporating the music provided. I met with Mark only one time to review a draft reproduction. Mark was very agreeable in making some slight changes based on my input. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone requiring this type of services. You will not be disappointed as Mark provides an exceptional end product at a very reasonable price that you will cherish forever.

    Mark saved the day! My family and I put on a Daddy Daughter Dance event to celebrate my dad, who is suffering from stage IV appendix cancer and to raise money for appendix cancer research. We had everything together but could not find a videographer to film our special day! Finally, we found Mark and he immediately dropped everything he was doing and helped us out right away. He worked with our budget and timeframe of the event. He was very reliable and showed up early and left late to get every ounce of footage he could. He worked diligently to get all the edits done quickly and had tons of copies made for us. He even included pictures from the event in the video! He is very easy to get in contact with and does everything he can to make sure he delivers the video that you want. Thank you so much for your fantastic contribution to our special day!
    Mark C. Oct 3, 2013

    Amanda and her family, principal photographer Steve Donaldson of Unique Images and everyone involved in making the Kahler Daddy-Daughter Dance possible helped make my job so much easier and worry-free. Details on the event and what Amanda was looking for were very clear. I'm happy that I could deliver on expectations and must say, this is my most memorable event to date. Two photographers and myself worked in unison and continuously seemed to be looking out for the other. We all wanted that "one shot" and I think by how we respected each others space and direction of travel at times, we pulled it off very, very well. :D

    Mark was an absolute joy to work with in the creation of a wonderful 60th birthday video for my husband's surprise party. Mark allowed me to be as involved in it's creation as much as I wanted (which was a lot!) but he made some great suggestions and provided editing expertise that resulted in a DVD that everyone loved (especially my husband)! They laughed in all the right places and cried when memories were stirred! I really appreciated how easy he was to work with and how he allowed me so much input and decision-making authority in the final DVD. My husband was very impressed with the professionalism and quality of Mark's work too. I would highly recommend Mark if you want someone with excellent customer service and the talent to creat a one-of-a-kind video gift that will be treasured for many years!

    Linda is what I'd call the "dream client" for a project such as this. Not only did she write the script, she provided me with all necessary materials (cassettes, photos) in a timely manner. Every time we met until the film was finished, Linda would ask about changes or inform me of what was coming next for me to edit or create. I actually felt of her more as a collaborator than a customer. Linda is very talented in her own right and her organizational skills helped very much. To hear how her husband and family/friends reacted to the video reminds me once again why I love doing what I do.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Reading and re-reading on topics from various sources concerned with filmmaking, especially when talking digital film. From new techniques or styles to very detailed subjects on lighting and audio work. You may have the best (or not so best) equipment out there, but depending on the type of shot needed, lighting especially can make a huge difference. Audio is just as important and unfortunately many filmmakers forget to put it up on their priority list. Much less remembering to turn a mic on or off!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Promo spots, short image films, weddings, music videos.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Just because the provider hasn't done work related to your field of business doesn't mean a quality spot cannot be provided. Sometimes it's better: fresh approach, new ideas!
