Ben was great to work with! We hired him to film a corporate instructional video for a tech product. Ben was quick to answer questions we had before signing the contract and flexible with our needs. During filming he was professional, patient, friendly, communicative, attentive to detail, and overall very pleasant to work with. He was also kind enough to give us pointers and advice on editing the footage since we are doing it ourselves. I would highly recommend working with him, and hope we can work together again in the future.Jul 20, 2017Verified

Ben was FANTASTIC!!! He was incredibly approachable, communicated his needs and vision well, was very open to input and discussions, extremely available and punctual, and to top it all off: he left us with a great product! I can't say enough about being able to look back at all the fantastic moments and Ben not only caught them, but presented them in a professional and entertaining fashion. Video quality: superb Audio quality: astounding Color consistency: very good Cuts: meaningful and well done Overall product: perfect I can't recommend Ben enough and would gladly hire him again for any other major events.Apr 6, 2020Verified
Ben came to the venue an hour earlier and had everything setup. He even helped me with the audio settings. I was worried a lot about how the video would be shot , but he seemed to know everything, eg - placing the camera at the right angle etc which is what I expect from a professional . He completely took care of the job which made my life a lot more easier since I did not have the bandwidth to supervise/communicate anything. Also, he helped out a lot in post processing the video till I thought the results were good. Would highly recommend.Mar 14, 2019Verified

Working with Ben was great, he is extremely professional, punctual and responsive. The work he delivered was outstanding and the quality of the editing was flawless as well. Highly recommended.May 17, 2019Verified
Ben was an absolute pro. He was already setting up when we arrived, conducted himself with utmost care for our guest, used top-notch Blackmagic cameras with cine lenses and went above and beyond to make sure we were able to bring the material back to the studio right after we finished. He even took us to his home when we hit a snag due to low transfer rates of our SSDs and used his own editing bay to wrap it up. Great job all around.Nov 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our prices are based on a day rate scale. This means that our clients get us for the entire day regardless of how long or short a project takes. This flat pricing allows us to be flexible with clients needs without leaving them in the dark about what the final cost of a project will be.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We both work with a set day rate for our projects, so the first step with a new client is finding out how many days their project will require. Typically 30 second commercials require two days (one day of shooting and one day of editing) and 3 minute promotional videos take three days (one day of shooting and two days of editing). This varies from client to client based on their needs. After giving our client an estimate on the total time and cost we schedule shoot days for their project and a timeline of when they can expect the final product. When a client has hired us for editing or animation there are a number of drafts that are sent to the client for client to send notes on what the do or do not like and what if anything they would like changed. Once the client approves the finished product we receive final payment for our work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Ben Lindesmith has a Bachelor's of Science in Media Communications from Full Sail University. Heather Lindesmith has a Bachelor's of Arts in Photography from the University of Minnesota.
