    Mike was great. Very professional throughout the event and the finished product was exactly what I expected. Will absolutely consider him if I ever return to Louisville.

    Mike captured my husband's 60th birthday party on video. He was professional in his interactions with me and also of our guests. Mike captured the essence of the party while making sure the camera was mostly unnoticed. The video he produced of the event was fantastic. Many thanks, Mike.

    I had a multicultural wedding on July 2013 and Mike was our DJ and videographer. Words can not describe how awesome of a job he did for us. He got us music from YouTube that was in a completely different language (that we couldn't find CDs for). He was always available to meet, answered all my emails quickly, and was always a professional. He made our guest feel welcome and his selection in music was fun and everyone told us how much they enjoyed it. We had minimal decoration but Mike's great lights created a great dancing enviroment. I am super excited about our video, Mike captured everything perfectly (amazing in that he couldn't understand any of the Buddhist ceremony). Mike was able to edit and give us our video a week after the wedding! I would not hesitate to work with Mike again, or recommend him to our family and friends. Or anyone that demands the best at their wedding!!!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I log onto my edit program's user group to see what the latest issues are. I also add new gear and software yearly to stay on top of the video technology.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
For events the video prices are primarily based on amount of time needed and number of camera angles. The main option for the dj service (besides time needed) is lighting.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I studied radio and television production in college.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings are number one followed by all other types of celebrations and corporate/web type production.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Last year I produced a short information video for Toyota to showcase one the charities that they co-sponsor with United Way called "Born Learning" . It involved traveling to different locations and interviewing teachers, parents and even the governor. This footage combined with B-Roll made up the finished production.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be sure to view detailed samples for video work and ask express your expectations clearly. It doesn't hurt to meet the dj who is handling your event so that you can have that face to face interaction.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish that people would recognize the value of experience and dedication in this business.
