    Great performance, would highly recommend for any event!

    DJ Chris did an outstanding job for my daughters 16th birthday party in Orlando FL, He arrived well before the party to ensure he was all set up and ready, he had been in contact with my daughter to make sure he had all the music she wanted to have and he also took many pictures during the party to capture her special moment with her friends. The pictures were sent the next day.

    DJ Chris had a great personality, very professional and demonstrated he had a lot of experience being a DJ.

    All of the equipment used appeared to be in new condition and sounded great as well as the lighting and lasers.

    I would highly recommend his services and would hire him again in an instant.

    Chris John did a fantastic job of "pumping up" our party! Several people commented during the party, about what a great selection of music he was playing! He has a great attitude and was fun and easy to work with. He also took more than 100 candid photos, which was great, because I got to just be "in the moment" and not worry about taking photos! I highly recommend him and will hire him again, when I have the opportunity!

  • 5/5 stars DJ Verified Review

    Chris went above and beyond for our party. We had over 200 people and he played music that fit everyones taste. The children especially loved dancing to his music. He was profesional and on time and I would recommend him to anyone reading this. Look forward to having him back next year.

    Thanks Carla, I loved your 80's themed party DJ which made all the pics I took look really cool and letting "Grandma Rich" up on stage as a half time show to give a comedy bit was the best decision ever made because she was pretty funny. Thanks for letting me be your DJ and Photographer! Chris

    Loved it, thanks! Chris

    Chris did outstanding job to entertain a little crew of 8-9 years olds during my daughter b-day. He expressed geniune interest about his assignment and was very funny and detail-oriented at the same time. I liked the most was his immediate connection with children like he was his buddy, not a grown-up.I believe Chris provides the best quality for the money you pay on current market of entertainers.Don`t hesitate to hire him, you will be very, very happy.

    Christopher J. from Elite Productions replied to this review on June 22, 2014:

    Most excellent party and a breath of fresh air catering to children for a change was a real pleasure. The fashion show was awesome too and I am amazed at the final footage, your daughter and the others were sensational at dressing up and entertaining. Thanks for letting me be your DJ and Videographer! Chris

    I have worked with Chris for over 6 years. Chris is extremely professional, uses only top of the line equipment and his finished product always amazes me.

    Christopher J. from Elite Productions replied to this review on September 12, 2012:

    Thanks John, that means a lot coming from you because I have always admired your pro and positive "can do" attitude!

  • 5/5 stars

    Chris patiently and professionally worked on a music video of mine which had approx. a hundred cuts. He was able to "get inside my head" on this one and help me finalize, with creative sense, a good final product. I would recommend Chris Clute as an A+ editor and professional.

    Christopher J. from Elite Productions replied to this review on September 12, 2012:

    Thanks Paul, I actually thought you were professional and patient with me!

  • 5/5 stars

    Chris is one of the best if not THE best producer Ive ever worked with. He thinks out of the box, and is PASSIONATE about anything related to his profession. The great thing about Chris is not only does he do great video work, but his real life experience in areas such as business ownership, travel, product branding, and many other areas, makes him so well rounded you almost want to hire him for your company personally! Anyway, our small company secured a major national license deal directly related to the work Chris has done for our team and we will ALWAYS be grateful and better for having his hand and creative vision on our products.

    Christopher J. from Elite Productions replied to this review on September 12, 2012:

    I don't even know what to say to this... Thanks Victor, you are a genius! I can't wait to work together again and follow your positive, super passionate and enthusiastic lead while we argue about the relevance of traditional film form... lol

    Chris was hired to edit a sample comedy pilot, and add laugh tracks. Not only did he turn the work around promptly, but also did an excellent job of adding the canned laughter as requested. He has excellent comic timing, which is key for a comedy editor.

    Christopher J. from Elite Productions replied to this review on September 12, 2012:

    Thanks Burt, I enjoyed following your direction on the precise final cuts needed. You are a great director and actor/comedian!

    Chris did an amazing job on my speedreel. I am an actess who had alot of vhs tapes of tv shows and videos, that he redigitized for me, made clean and appropriate cuts, adding subtitles, graphics and great music too. He was very pleasant, fun and creative to work with. He got the job done in a timely manner and we stayed in contact via phone and internet to get the exact results we wanted. He even set up a youtube page for me and gave advice on some other media advertising, so he went above and beyond. I know we will be working together soon, as he will now be my go to guy. Highly recomended! www.youtube.com/jeannettespeedreels check it out for yourself. God bless You.
