    Totally Professional and Dependable
    Franklin is very conscientious and communicated very well prior to the shoot. He showed up early and was very pleasant to work with. He was very patient when the shoot ran longer than expected. We ended up with a great result. Update: I just used Franklin for another project. Same great result!

    Exceptional Service with Amazing Results
    FAS Filming LLC did a fantastic job taping the Christmas Production at my church. The owner was very professional from our initial meeting and throughout the production and follow-up. He provided suggestions for ensuring the sound was picked up adequately and was on time and very courteous. The result was an amazing, highly professional video complete with scene names, cast names and music. I can't wait to hire FAS Filming for my next event. Exceptional service.

    Wedding Reception Video
    I requested a videographer the Wednesday before my Saturday wedding reception. FAS Filming showed up an hour before my reception started to film my guests arriving. He edited the video and made it available to me in less than 2 weeks!! It would have been quicker if I would have provided them the information they requested in a more timely manner. I was very pleased with the finished product. My husband and I have watched the video twice!

    Super professional videography.
    Hired FAS FIlming to videotape a chamber music concert in a difficult space both acoustically and photographically. The results were wonderful -- very useful for our purposes. Frank is very communicative, delivers what he promises, follows up quickly, and just generally super professional. Strongly recommend.

    We made the best decision hiring FAS to photography/video my nephews 17th birthday! Franklin is phenomenal! He was on-time (early in fact), approachable, professional and even went the extra mile to help us with set up and clean up after the party. Felt like Franklin was part of the family! We can't wait to see the final photos/ videos! Thanks again FAS team!

    I can't say enough good things about FAS Filming. James truly captured my son's wedding with all the tender and funny moments. Franklin did a fabulous job putting it all together. He was very responsive to editing suggestions and had the video ready for us very quickly. This video is something I will treasure forever and I am so grateful for their expertise and attention to detail.

    Nancy, James and I thank you for the glowing review!! James stated it was a pleasure working with Kevin and Chelsea. I certainly enjoyed producing their wedding celebration video. Franklin

    FAS Filming LLC was a great choice for my wedding. Franklin was easy going and didn't mind the extra paperwork necessary for him to gain access to my venue (on a military base). He made sure that anything I needed was available to me and he always had a pleasant disposition. I have not received my video yet, but I am sure it will be great!

    Victoria and Jonathan Thank you, I hope all is well and you are satisfied with the video.

    I hired Frank as a fellow professional Videographer to cover a corporate event (presentations) that I could not cover myself. Frank was professional and covered the presentations as requested.I had no worries in hiring Frank -- I knew he would show up, dressed appropriately, film, and deliver the video materials as requested. I will hire Frank again in the future.

    Hired FAS for three lacrosse games over the course of two weeks.. First two were great and was happy with service. Last game was a no show. I showed up at game 45 minutes into game to drop off check. No videographers. They were at wrong place but didn't bother to call or inform me until I called them. If they had called me when they got to the game and realized they were in wrong school, I could've scrambled to cover that game. However, no professional courtesy was exhibited. As a result, clients are cancelling my contract.

    Frank helped us by taking photographs of a few machines we intend to buy. It was a 1 day shoot, and he went back once to repeat a video shoot of one of the machines. He was very accommodating and flexible. He was willing to cooperate and the images were top-notch. Next time we need to do this in the area, we will be sure to give Frank a call.

    I was so impressed that Franklin was way early for the baptism service at 8 AM, despite his wife being hospitalized at 2 AM that same day and she was still in hospital. I asked for raw video footage and he did an outstanding job on the filming--very thorough and professional. Quickly he sent me the 6 CD copies I requested and was willing to help me with downloading the film from dropbox if I had troubles. I would most definitely call him again for any video-taping!

    Franklin Sayers is an incredibly talented film maker. Not only is he a videographer, he is a world class producer. When Franklin was filming my project for my website, he asked me what I was going to talk about. After listening and talking in into his heart, he said Ok - wait a minute, "I will return". He walked around the property and came back and said, This is where we are going to do the filming". He is very creative. He doesn't just get behind a camera and shoot, He has vision, passion and talent when he is filming. The result is a world class film. He puts his heart and soul into the entire project. He included me and asked for my feedback and we worked together as a team. I was nervous the first time I was about to be filmed. He is so relaxed and kind, he put me at ease after the first couple takes. He kept encouraging me, which enabled me to relax and be myself. Franklin is awesome and I am blessed that God sent him to me. There is no question about it, God sent him to me. I didn't even want to update my website, I didn't want to have a video done of me. when Franklin approached me, I listened to him and was open. I didn't shut the door and I am thrilled and thankful that Franklin became part of my team at Bayley & Bender making my website a show piece. I highly recommend Franklin Sayers - he is beyond Outstanding. He is the BEST of the BEST. God gave him a very special talent and he is using this talent to help you and make you shine!!! He created and produced a sensational film for me. And to top it off---- he is nice and great to work with!!! It doesn't get any better than that. He is doing God's work!!!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Pre-Production - meeting with the new customer to discuss their requirement(s) We collaborate with them on their overall vision of the project. This stage includes laying out the shoot venue and casting. Also, includes story-boarding when necessary. Production Once there is clear understanding and agreement to move forward we will capture all the scenes and information in the pre-production process. During the production process we will work out the lighting requirements, camera(s) positioning, etc. We will capture B-Roll during the production process. B-Roll is additional footage that will included in the finished production. Our videography and photography production are captured using Professional HD camcorders, and DLSRs, Professional audio with livewire and/or wireless microphones. Post-Production Our post production process begins after we captured all the footage. This is one of my favorite parts of the video making process. We add graphics, images, voice overlays and music overlays along with lower thirds, transitions, color correction and special effects.
