Ian was very professional and fairly priced. He showed up early even though he traveled 2 1/2 hours, and edited the raw film perfectly. I was very pleased with the final product. My event was a Military Funeral and even though he had never done a funeral before, he captured the ceremony perfectly. I would highly recommend him for any of your video needs.Feb 23, 2018Verified

Ian was amazing! He was extremely responsive, easy to work with and very reliable. We gave him a pretty big task of shooting and editing a video with almost no prep time and he delivered early and everyone loved it! He's an end-to-end production house and also comes with all of his own equipment. I'd hire Ian again for sure!Jan 24, 2018Verified

Ian exceeded expectations in the following ways: 1) Willing to go the extra mile. a. Right up front, while in the RFP stage he researched into our request for a specific format and shared his findings. It was obvious he had done more than a surface dive into the requested format. He came back with specifics including what the cost was for purchasing the software to be able to deliver the videos in the specialized format. The cost of the software was prohibitive for him to purchase independent of our paying for it, but he gave additional technical information to help us troubleshoot through the process of how to make things work on our end. b. The first session included some technical difficulties, and so he also videotaped the last session on day 2, which was a repeat of the first session. His motivation was in wanting to deliver a quality product. 2) Flexible a. There was little time between my first contacting him and the job starting. We could not be flexible on the dates and so he made changes in his schedule. b. There were changes on our side of the equation on multiple levels and he accommodated without issue. c. Extremely accommodating about payment and followed up when he did receive payment. 3) He delivered exactly what he promised. a. Quality of the audio/video and editing was great b. He delivered on time c. He communicated updates along the way. 4) Very easy to work and communicate a. He was always pleasant and respectful in every communication and throughout the 2-days of videotaping. b. He was very approachable and quick to respond to requests and communications. Bottom line His bid was not the cheapest or the most expensive that came in, but he was the most helpful and consistently responsive to communications. I could tell by the questions he asked and how he asked them that he had passion for what he does and it is not just a job to make money. What is important to him is delivering the highest quality product. would not hesitate in the future to work with him again for similar needs. highest recommendsJan 4, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I aim to deliver exceptional value and quality at professional rates. My pricing is based upon a day rate for my services as videographer/producer, plus a gear fee that varies depending upon the needs of the project. For a one-day shoot plus editing, you can expect that a package price might be in the range of $1500-$2000. Of course, when needed for larger projects, I can also bring in additional camera operators, photographers, etc.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We'll have a discussion to determine the appropriate production value and approach suitable for your specific audience and your budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended USC film school in the 1990s. I have worked professionally in all aspects of video production for more than 25 years.
