We hired Derek to shoot a product commercial for us. He exceeded our expectations period. We met with over seven videographers and none of them could understand our vision. After the first meeting with Derek, we felt really comfortable with him. He also has an amazing reel of his work on thumbtack. The final product was just impressive. We will post a link of the video once it’s ready to be released! Thank you so much Derek for working so hard and making our vision a reality!

From start to finish he did an amazing job. I was utterly impressed. There were loose ends everywhere and he made it all work in an seemless fashion. Cooperative and easy to work with. Above all else, he has an eye for the finished product like no other pro. Can not say enough about working with him.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Being new to Thumbtack, I'm accepting prices that are below industry standard until I gain more positive reviews and connections. I guarantee quality and innovation in my work, and utilize over 12 years of experience in the field.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I try to find out what the goal of the customer's video is, and where its going to be shown. Then I elicit their ideas and give my own input if asked. If they need new ideas for concepts, I search for popular examples on the internet, and we discuss what ideas we'd like to pursue.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    2 years studying film, and mainly online training.
