AnthonyD created a Celebration of Life tribute video for my husband who passed away in March. He waded through TONS of pictures and organized them in a way that culminated into an amazing walk through Carl's life from childhood to adult. I gave him a couple of musical artists that Carl liked, and he then chose the PERFECT 4 songs to use in my video. I played his video last Sunday at Carl's COL event and there was not one dry eye in the house. AnthonyD created a video that Carl's family will cherish for the rest of their lives and pass on to those after us. It invoked every motion you could have about someone's life. People who have not met Carl, but have watched the video, told me that they now felt like they knew Carl, and that is thanks to AnthonyD. In the music, in the picture order, in the way he incorporated live videos alongside still pictures - truly amazing quality work and something I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Where do I begin? First of all Anthony is a first class “human” with a heart of gold. Confident in his craft because he has put in time energy and dedication to it. I was blown away by his level of creativity. The whole world one day, I pray will discover this gem! I had a blast recording my music video with him and he turned the little we had into something really great. I highly recommend this professional.

Ohhhhhh my Goddddd!!!! Where do I begin!!! Anthony D!!!!!!! The best of the best. He was so lay back, he was so positive when I got stress out. He made me feel so good about myself and made me comfortable. My whole team love him and his team. I’m a new artist and the team gave me something extraordinary work. I so blessed I came to his page, it’s like the universe just dropped him on my door step. He is so patient and gave me exactly what I needed and more. I can’t wait to work on projects with him. I got nothing but positive feedback on the production. His video, editing and work ethics are the best. The fact that he loves what he does shows and the energy is just amazing!!!!! I’m so working with him in the future. Anthony D, we are going to Africa. I appreciate you. ThNk you so much for you verything, you’re a blessing. Check out his amazing work he did for me.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Prices usually vary depending on how many locations, different tools needed (how many cameras? Drone?) Do we need different settings? (Day and/or night)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Finding what the customer is looking for to make sure I am a good fit. Working on the details with the client to come up with a great concept. Then making sure I am fully prepared to capture and create the best possible version of that product.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’ve received 2 diplomas through Shaw Academy. Constantly research editing and production tutorials focused on film & music. Always trying to stay a step or two ahead!
