“My company, Greenheart Creative, has hired StartMotionMEDIA to conduct videography for three consecutive years at the Wanderlust Festival Lake Tahoe or Whistler BC. They have been responsible for in-depth shooting and perform well in the video production environment. Michael confidently does what needs to be done to help our production succeed. He takes extremely good care of himself and others on a personal and professional level, and thus seems to manage stressful situations with grace. He communicates with compassion, and is very clear and organized. I have hired StartMotionMEDIA 3 straight years, and plan to bring them on board again next year. I think they would make a great addition to any video production project: they really care about continual improvement and making great videos, always learning from each experience.”
“StartMotionMEDIA was able to help CODEPINK Women for Peace work toward our 10th anniversary goals by creating a short video documenting inspiring work from the past decade of peace activism. Michael was thoughtful, organized, and worked quickly to meet our project launch deadline. His company accommodated our needs and feedback quickly. I would highly recommend engaging the pre-production brainstorming sessions regarding video content and storyline with StartMotionMEDIA, who, in addition to having the technical skills necessary for a production, have a lot of wisdom on effective and persuasive narrative development as well.”
“StartMotionMedia helped our vision get rooted in reality, and our work kept moving in the right direction. I appreciate your willingness and commitment to doing what is needed to make things happen, and your clarity about timing and expectations. Smart, kind, caring, talented. I would recommend them to people who need help launching their initiative. Thanks for everything!”
– Robert, Inspiration Campaign
“StartMotionMEDIA created an inspiring crowd-funding video to support our project. We we’re successfully funded! Their eye for capturing the human spirit made our message so much more compelling and inspiring. With deep appreciation,”

“The most helpful services were storyline creation, pre-outlined interview questions and awesome shooting, editing, and video creation. Michael is thorough, organized, pays attention to detail, prompt, open-minded, and patient. From the first call to shooting day, everything was well thought out. They do what they can to learn about the project and the person behind the project. On the day of our shoot, went through all the sequences and visual shots we needed to capture. Michael was very strict on the production timeline despite me wanting to add things that were not discussed – I liked that aspect as it would have thrown us off schedule and off track…it kept us together. I am very happy with the video.”
– Adrian, Slick Athletics
“Because of our work I was able to increase traffic and inspire more people to be excited about working with me. StartMotionMEDIA did a fabulous job at making my project look very professional, making useful suggestions, paying close attention do the details, and attending to modifications as necessary. They have been very apt in showing me how to manage the project myself. They are very good at what they do, creative, smart, and courageous. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to create, modify, or launch an advertising or media campaign who needs an awesome and inspiring visual impact.”
