It was a great pleasure working with Ray Medved on a memorial video for my recently departed mother. Ray was not only thoughtful, accommodating, and professional, but made the task of producing a memorial video at such a trying time easier. I had full confidence in his skills throughout the process, and his all-night efforts to get the video done and delivered on time under great time constraints were, in a word, heroic. He was courteous and patient throughout the entire process. So, for all of this I am thankful.
I also appreciate the great care he took in making this visual memorial special. From the outset, I was impressed with the quality of his work--or, shall I say, his artistry. Indeed, I was delighted with what he did with the initial batch of old photos I sent him--from a creative label to a beautifully rendered introduction and first part --all of which, demonstrated to me that I had made the right choice in selecting him for this project. Working with a large archive of photographs did not rattle him in the least. In fact, he handled all the photographs with great care and skill. As a result, many of them which appeared in the final cut looked better than the originals! I saw details in some which I had not formerly discerned. In addition, Ray was accommodating to the vision I had of how I wanted the images to unfold, advising me when asked and always providing the best options for producing a visual effect or emotional impact. When it came to the music for the video, he quickly resolved some technical issues for me--much to my relief!--and even complemented my choice of songs with other music which was both appropriate and lovely for the occasion.
All in all, the memorial video turned out to be not only a touching remembrance, but a beautiful tribute to my late mother. For these reasons and more, I highly recommend Ray to anyone who is looking for a professional to collaborate with on a video project, Most of all, thank you, Ray, for providing me and, by extension, my family comforting aid and artistry at a very difficult time.
