Our company had a holiday party in which we had a photo booth. George had everything setup he even called to confirm attire since it was at a country club. We had our logo on the prints. His professionalism and knowledge of photography was fantastic. Everyone had a wonderful time and the pictures just gave the night an even extra boost of fun. The props were clean and a large assortment which made a lot of laughs from everyone...great smiles for pictures too! I would HIGHLY recommend Pro Art Photo Video, Inc. Thank you George you are awesome!

Linda and her crew sought out to make sure the "Haight Ashbury: The Beat of a Generation Documentary," to the finish. A beautiful victory the film made selection at the Beverly Hills Film Festival (among other festivals) that would lead to Cannes Market and an International Distribution deal. Without the dedication of her staff (Scott Baker editor) the film would not have been so successful. I now hope to continue with a new project. Weld Conley Executive Producer...

Kevin is awesome! His videos are amazing. He is definitely a hidden gem! He was quick in his responses. Got me the highlight video within a week after the wedding and got the full video to me super fast. He is a fantastic cinematographer, his techniques and skills are way above a lot of others!

My husband and I used Terry's services to film our wedding and were elated with the outcome. We thought Terry was very professional and courteous. We went back and forth about even doing a wedding video but it turned out to be the best investment we made. We will have so many memories and we are glad we made the decision to do the wedding video in the end.

I cannot say enough good things about Tom and Blink of an Eye Productions. He originally did my sister's wedding video in 2009--a video we STILL watch time and time again at family gatherings. He did such a great job that I knew I'd want him to do my own wedding video (even 6 years later)! For starters, Tom is an absolute professional! He was on time; prepared; well-dressed (my bridesmaids were swooning over him!); and so accommodating. By far one of my best vendors! He was perfect the day of my wedding, as was his other cinematographer (TIP: Hire the 2nd cinematographer for the day so both Bride/Groom can have constant video coverage). I swear he’s like a ninja because he would blend in with the crowd and always maintain the perfect distance to allow us to experience our special wedding moments, while being able to capture it all the same. Most of the time I forgot he was even there. He also chose to stay and film my wedding at least an hour later than we agreed because he wanted to make sure he had everything he needed to guarantee our satisfaction. That detail alone would make me choose Tom over every other videographer. It’s simple, he CARES about his clients and their happiness. He isn’t there to just get some shots, leave, and make a stock video of your wedding. He’s an artist who is constantly inspired by his surroundings and wants to be sure he has everything he needs to deliver a product that is tailor made to each Bride and Groom. What more could you ask for?? Not only was Tom great to work with on the day of our wedding, but he was wonderful both pre and post wedding. He is super on top of things and has great communication with the client. And the end product (our wedding video) was nothing short of spectacular. I have NO idea how he took our 10+ hour day and edited it so beautifully. He has an amazing talent for detail and edits together your best moments to create a seamless story that you want to watch again and again. He captured moments that I didn’t even know existed. As a person in the film industry, I have a very high bar for quality of film. Tom surpassed my expectations and delivered my wedding in an art form that I can forever cherish. I am beyond grateful for all of his efforts. Because of him, I have the great pleasure of being able to relive the happiest day of my life anytime I please. Do yourself a favor and hire Tom to capture your wedding day! I guarantee he will end up being one of your favorite vendors, too!

Dan and I worked together on my short film project Catching Broken Glass. Dan was the assistant director, cinematographer as well editor and sound. What impressed the most was Dan's endless knowledge of his craft and that he's constantly learning and looking for ways to continually perfect his craft. As far as time is concerned. Dan would always come early enough to set up up his equipment. I am certainly looking forward to the final cut so I begin entering my project for the 2015 film festivals.

Amazing photographers! We had the pleasure of K and N media shooting our wedding at the Millar Chapel in Evanston,IL. They were both professional and creative at all times. They also took pictures at the Lake front in evanston and at our reception in Niles,IL. They we both timely and ready to capture our moments at every site . The final product of our wedding photos were amazing, professional, and high quality photos. They captured our day perfectly! They also had a fast turn around time getting the photos back to us. We would recommend booking K and N media for any photography.

Noel guided and advised me during my video shoot. Certainly knew what he was doing and very easy to work with. The video was put together perfectly the first time. Needed no re-editing. Was extremely happy with the video. If/when I have future need for video work I would not hesitate to call him. Thankyou Noel !

Hired Thomas for a shoot of a corporate party in hopes of getting a few images that I could use in newsletters and company communications through out the next year. The event itself changed locations and dates on 3 separate occasions. Through out it all Thomas was professional patient and understanding. The end product of what he did at the event was amazing, far above and beyond anything that I had imagined or expected, and thats a lot as my company is a film production company and Im a 7 year cinematographer. Id hire him ever time!!!!

I was incredibly nervous to hire vendors off of thumbtack due to one very poor experience but Vanessa made the entire experience one to remember. She and her husband are completely professional and do outstanding work. They were a joy to have around on my special day; very sweet, patient and respectful of the photographers which went a long way to having happy vendors all the way around. I couldn't be happier with our extended highlight video and 60 minute video. She was quick to respond throughout the process even after we were done which I loved. Choose Forty One Films, their work speaks for itself!

Mason is a superb cinematographer. He's got a sharp eye for shots, knows how to get in and get em, and is an excellent communicator. He's highly creative but very flexible--he's able to either work with your idea or come up with one of his own and see it through to completion. Highly recommend him for any filming jobs you have!

About

I am an aspiring cinematographer. I have this passion for arts, and I want to bring my ideas and vision to something people can appreciate. Seeing things in a creative way is one of my qualities that will surely justify the meaning of beauty. Capturing life's moments would be the best work I could see in myself.

About

I graduated from Columbia College with a BA in Cinematography and have been pursuing my dreams in the videography and cinematography fields. Though one day I would enjoy to be a cinematographer of feature films, I enjoy doing videography work for small events and helping on small budget shorts when and where I can.
