Testimonials

I met Dennis and Mary through their work with Giant Steps, a non-profit school helping children and families with autism, and they were so great to work with that I asked them to help the company I work for to tell our story. This first experience included the production of four videos – each one was right on target and delivered the message we wanted. We were so happy that we’ve hired them to produce ten more videos! If that doesn’t say how incredible they are, I don’t know what does.

They are excellent to work with; high energy, positive and very skilled at their craft. I have done very high end production video in the past and their approach takes the talent they have in creative direction, production, and editing and utilizes today’s technology to quickly give you a great video at incredible value to tell your story easily and in a compelling manner on the multitude of channels available today.

They are awesome to work with!

Dennis and Mary are a wonderful team to work side by side with. They both express a unique interactive quality in their work. Dennis and Mary came to our center through a volunteer program and have touched many hearts along the way. They capture memories and have the creativity to share them in such a way that others wish to experience as well. Dennis and Mary have done a superior job highlighting our centers programs and events which in turn have gained us business in addition to friendships. Their advertising tactic is straight, to the point, fun and entertaining. We enjoy viewing the videos just as much as our clients. I would recommend all small businesses chat with Dennis and Mary to learn how they can help promote their business, you won’t be disappointed.

Passionate and compassionate – two words that describe Dennis and Mary best. When they’re on your project, they care. Just as much as you, which is a rare trait these days. Month after month they pulled the emotional stories together for our videos, and month after month they represented our company as if it were their own – often times being the first point of contact for our families. When you need a team who “gets it,” and gets it done, Dennis and Mary are it. No drama, no B.S., just straight up great story-telling. I’ll be forever grateful to them.

Dennis and Mary literally saved the day for my organization when another film crew realized they were overbooked. They took the time to really hear our story, asked questions I hadn’t even thought of, were extremely professional and timely, understanding when I didn’t quite have it together, and just generally wonderful to work with. That’s not even to speak of the product, which was spot on. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with them.

I engaged Dennis and Mary to film a video series, and they couldn’t have made the process easier and more fun. They helped me uncover a more impactful story to tell through the video series, and they created phenomenally engaging videos in just a few days. I’ll use them for any I need done, period.

Dennis and Mary were fantastic to work with on our project with Naperville’s Loaves & Fishes.  They spent extra time with our team helping prepare us for our shoot, as several of us were a little camera shy.  Their patience and professionalism put us all at ease during the shoot.  The final result was awesome!! We had great responses from our customers and social media followers following our event.  The best outcome from our project was Dennis and Mary’s ability to weave our message into their storytelling about all the great work Loaves & Fishes provides our community.  Many try to incorporate video into their storytelling…Dennis and Mary actually execute their storytelling with perfection.  Just an amazing team to work with!!!
