    Great finished product!
    Daniel provided us with a great finished product of a recap video for a commercial construction networking event. He was flexible and able to work with us, and took our suggestions into consideration while also provided strong direction for what would work best. Thanks for the great video!

    Enlightened Pictures produced, directed, filmed and edited a GREAT video for my company. He was fun to work with, went the extra mile at every turn, and really took on the project like it was a demo video for his own company. I really learned a lot, enjoyed the time, and will be back in touch for our next project. You can't go wrong here! Eric Carver General Manager Medical Electronic Systems www.mes-global.com

    I've worked with Daniel on two projects and am quite happy to recommend him. He has a great eye for filming, is easy to work with, and is a true professional. He is efficient and respects his locations. He also did the editing of our projects and gave us more than we could have asked. His prices are competitive but his value is right at the top. From now on we're using him exclusively. Frank Vessels Elite ISI

    I've known Daniel since the early 90's when he produced a short wherein I played the lead. Later, we worked together very closely on too many video projects to recall. His artistic sensibilities are always vivid, thoughtful and well structured. He is both a gifted, sophisticated artist invariably producing festival-worthy work, is an exemplar of laser focus and a flawless work ethic; and finally, a disciplined craftsman who will not miss a critical detail. Finally, Daniel is a funny guy. (Check out his acting reel.) His lovely wife was an acting student of my wife. She and I attended their wedding. I always look forward to our time together. Which I am committed to continuing for decades to come! In short, the dude rocks.

    Daniel has created two video series for me, both with terrific results creatively and budget/schedule. He's an excellent producer and director, with strong theatrical and comedic sensibilities. For instance, I conceived the concept and outlined the latter series, after which Daniel slightly restructured it for much better effect and also teased out the comedic elements. The result is universally praised as charming and engaging, while also strongly selling the product it pitches. The result is here: http://youtu.be/YtJsoxlhelg

    I worked with Daniel on a video project over the course of 6 months. Daniel was very professional, easy to work with, always responsive to emails and phone calls and I was struck by his ability to make others being video taped feel at ease. His technical expertise, along with his willingness to collaborate and work well with others contributed to the success of this project. I would definitely recommend Daniel- his work is outstanding and he is a pleasure to work with.

    I worked with Daniel to produce a PSA for Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) with Actress and GDB supporter Betty White. From start to finish, Daniel and his crew were the utmost professionals. He was thorough, attentive, responsive to my every question, and very creative in terms of art direction and editing. Our finished pieces are stunning and effective. I recommend him wholeheartedly for your next video production.

    A very dedicated, experienced filmmaker. I've worked with Daniel for at least 15 years now and value him most for his creativity as director or editor. He's equally devoted to lighting or sound work. The fact that he's dependable and personable keeps our business relationship going.
  • Terry G. Jan 7, 2013
    Daniel I have produced a half-dozen projects together. His attention to detail, broad understanding of good storytelling and video production make him the ideal partner. Also, he's very savvy about the latest trends online and in media.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common type of jobs are short documentaries promoting a specific product for social networks, marketing, and branding. Most recently we produced a Webisode series for a hightech company promoting their product through humorous episodes. It was a big hit, even won an award at a tech conference. We also provide HD production and post-production services, editing documentaries, commercials, and short films.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for good samples of work that reflect the services you are looking for. Don't be a tire kicker. If you're on a tight budget tell them upfront and give a specific number that way you'll be saving yourself and the service provider lots of time. Much of the time, depending on the scope of work you might be able to get a good deal. Understand that in the film business cheaper does not necessarily equal better. Most of the time it's the other way around. The film business is mostly word of mouth. Ask for a referral and a sample before making your final decision. A producers work is only as good as their samples.
