I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.
I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.
We worked with Minea on a project that required filming CEO interviews at multiple locations around the Bay Area. Overall: I couldn't have been happier with the way Minea handled everything from communications to filming to editing. She has a great eye for what works and what doesn't and she brings the right kind of filmmaking passion to a project of any type. The end result looked very clean and sharp; just the way I hoped! She is very laid-back, friendly and professional, and made everyone feel super comfortable on the set. Also, the execution was flawless. As a customer, I felt my project was in great hands at every step of the way. Though our assignment didn't leave too much room for creativity, I became very convinced that if we'll ever do a video project that needs more creative planning & storytelling ability, Minea is a superb choice for the job. Can't say enough good things about her. We would definitely work with her again. Fun fact: After realizing we're Finnish, she started to communicate with us in Finnish. I never saw that coming, and her fluency in Finnish was impressive :-) Tuomas L. / Nordic Business Forum
Kendra is not only a skilled videographer and filmmaker but she has consistently pushed the envelope and continues to impress with her brand of creative output, be it in the field of narrative or documentary filmmaking or even special events. Her understanding of the what the camera can capture in cohesion to the environment, subejct matter or product is a testament to her immense talent. It also doesn't hurt that she is an actual joy to work with!
I cannot say enough in praise of the work of Stefano Gonzalez. His work on a documentary for the organization for which I am board president, the Pacific Center (LGBT Center in Berkeley), has uncovered previously unknown history about the Center, which he presents in such a caring and powerful manner, with respect to cinematography. It has consistently brought audiences to tears, in a good way. He sees things in a unique way, and weaves a story through film like no other filmmaker I have encountered. Having been interviewed/filmed by Stefano as well, I can attest that he makes you feel completely comfortable as a subject and has a high level of professionalism. Whether for a larger film project, or a short film for a website, or to film an event at a company/organization, I highly recommend Stefano Gonzalez. His film has become a visual mission statement for our organization, what is was, what it has become, and where it's going, taking with it the history we cannot forget. -- Vera Hannush, Board President, Pacific Center (Berkeley)
Great company! My first time working with Maven Mayhem was an awesome experience. What I liked about them was their positive energy and well rounded team. Working with Jonathan Shorter, one of their filmmakers/photographers, is an open minded individual that knows how to work with and around your ideas and schedule. As for the production and the outcome of it, all I can say that I'll be looking forward to working with them again if I ever want to have another photo shoot!
Ryan is incredibly hard-working and passionate about filmmaking. He's very easy to work with, and he always goes above and beyond in his tireless pursuit of creating excellent cinematography
As the Project Manager for a national media company, I had the task of hiring a filmmaker to complete a series of short pieces covering the production of a luxury demonstration home in the Pacific Palisades. Stephen was required to work with myself, the builders, architects, designers, and manufacturers - and all of our schedules. His work was impeccable. And on top of that, he was easy to communicate with, timely, creative, and always knew what footage he needed to get for what we were trying to accomplish. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Cambria Films. You will not be disappointed with their work or their professionalism.
Latham Film created a short film for Shaklee Corporation which was extremely well received by our customers. They delivered their project on-time and on-budget which was greatly appreciated -- they are diligent, hard-working and excellent filmmakers. Would highly recommend.
Great communication before and after our event. Quick turn around time as well and was able to produce a quality video even with a few obstacles to tackle.
Professional, above and beyond, exceeded our expectations are words that come to mind in regards to Logan's work. We hired Northfox Media to film our wedding and were extremely impressed with his ability and talent behind the lens. His works reflects a well-seasoned filmmaker. Our wedding video is our favorite we have seen (we might be bias!), it beautifully captures a day that we will always want to remember and hope to show our children one day. The music, editing, and shots Logan got were unbelievable... my husband and I kept saying 'Do you even remember him filming this?' Logan knows how to capture moments without intruding or anything. Worth every single penny! I highly recommend hiring Northfox Media to capture any special moment !
