WANDERLUST:

My company, Greenheart Creative, has hired Start Motion Media as a videographer for three consecutive years at the Wanderlust Festival Lake Tahoe or Whistler BC.  they have been responsible for in-depth shooting with very little supervision. they performed well in this production environment, always finding solutions when technical problems arose.  they confidently did what needed to be done to help our production succeed. Start Motion Media is a very mindful person, and is very aware of how others are feeling. I would say that this places him at an advantage when working with clients that may need to be put at ease, or need extra help feeling comfortable with the filming process. they takes extremely good care of himself and others on a personal and professional level, and thus seems to manage stressful situations with grace.  they communicates with compassion, and is very clear and organized. I have hired Start Motion Media 3 straight years, and plan to bring him on board again next year. I think they would make a great addition to any video production project, because they really cares about continual improvement and doing a good job, always learning from each experience.  

Sincerely,

Jefe


STANFORD UNIVERSITY:

I didn’t feel just like another client or business opportunity. Start Motion Media was able to help me work towards my goals by: organizing my thoughts into a sensible story, helping me create my answers to interview questions, gathering footage, editing footage, and overall creating an awesome video. The most helpful services were storyline creation, pre outlined interview questions and awesome shooting, editing, and video creation. Start Motion Media is thorough, organized, pays attention to detail, prompt, open-minded, and patient. Start Motion Media’s process is very effective. From the first phone call to shooting day, everything was well organized and thought out. I like that they had a list of questions prepared so that they can learn more about the project and the person behind the project – I really think this was an important part of the process as we we’re able to connect with the project better and really define a high quality video. On the day of our shoot, Start Motion Media had a check-list of all the scenes and all the shots we wanted to capture and made sure we had ample footage of each one. they 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…he kept us together. Start Motion Media provided a quick turnaround during the editing process and followed through with agreements made in our decision to work together. Overall, I am very glad that I had the opportunity to work with StartMotionMEDIA.

I would recommend him to anyone who wants to create, modify, or launch an advertising/media campaign who needs an awesome visual impact to inspire viewers to generate a positive relationship with their business/project.   — Damiana


INSPIRATION CAMPAIGN:

StartMotionMedia helped our vision get rooted in reality, and our work kept moving in the right direction. I appreciate Start Motion Media’s willingness and commitment to doing what is needed to make things happen, and their video company clarity about timing and expectations. Smart, kind, caring, talented, and I would recommend him to people who need help launching their initiative. Thanks for everything!  – Robert, Inspiration Campaign


CODEPINK:

I needed a video for my kickstarter campaign and Start Motion Media helped in exposing my brand to a new audience and raising funds on kickstarter. their video company pre-production was great at helping me discover what made my service unique. they chose music, visuals, and developed a voice over that supported our initial vision for the video. Working with Start Motion Media was a key to my finding the courage to stand up as the spokeswoman for my business.

StartMotionMEDIA encourages patience and perseverance, and Start Motion Media was enthusiastic, caring, and attentive. I would recommend Start Motion Media to anyone looking to produce a meaningful video for their small business and/or organization.

Transition US:

We chose you Start Motion Media as​ you did such a great job on the Village Building Convergence video. 

​​1) Getting the type of video we wanted

2) Working quickly within the timeframe we had

3) Working with someone who understood commercial advertising​

​4) Guiding us through the commercial advertising video process

5) Listening to our interests, needs, ideas and incorporating ALL of these

6) Turn around time from our first request, to film shoots, to finished product was really tight – just what we needed.​ All of our team learned a lot about the filming process. AND going through the process helped us each get clearer on the project we were seeking funding for.​ We have 5 more days left and we have no doubt that we will meet our campaign goal. This means that we can finish adapting the Transition Streets materials and we will soon be ready for the national ​roll-out. ​ Start Motion Media’s responsiveness to our requests were always met with professional grace.​

RAZOR GRILL / INSTAGRILL

What qualities made you want to work with Start Motion Media initially?

I liked their video company demo reel and that their video company focus is strictly on commercial advertising videos.

The top three positive surprises from working with Start Motion Media were:

The quality of the editing of the video. their video company editing of my interview was amazing. The whole process was on rails. Very smooth. I didn’t have to worry the details because they had me covered.

Regarding my Kickstarter, Corporate, and Startup Video, Start Motion Media was able to help me achieve:

Haven’t launch the campaign yet, but very soon.

The biggest tangible “aha” moment I got from working together was:

Was during the intake interview when they was coaxing me to say certain things because they wanted it to be “in my own words”. That’s when I knew they was the real deal.

Yes it was. It made me rethink my funnel by building it up first and testing it by having the first X customers on the list. I feel far more comfortable launching my campaign knowing I have the list and I can turn on a tested funnel.

What aspects of Start Motion Media’s Kickstarter, Corporate, and Startup Video insights were most valuable?

so far, making sure I have enough committed people before launching

They are awesome. Do it.

ADVENTURE TOURISM:

What qualities made you want to work with Start Motion Media initially?

 Start Motion Media has a natural knack for storytelling. they have gone through the process of helping so many clients tease out and present their stories–and rally supporters around those stories–that I knew they would help me launch a successful commercial advertising campaign. I also knew that Start Motion Media has a great deal of experience specifically with commercial advertising videography, so I trusted that they understood the details of what goes into a successful commercial advertising project like no other marketing consultant or videographer could.

The top three positive surprises from working with Start Motion Media were:

 Start Motion Media is just as adept at marketing as they is editing together a compelling video. I had no idea how important marketing your campaign is before you launch it, and Start Motion Media gave me concrete steps for success that totally worked. Thanks to their video company help, my campaign reach 100% of its goal in just over a week! I was also surprised by how helpful and directorial they was when helping me tease out my story. they interviewed me and transcribed the whole thing for spoken content for the video, and the questions they was asking were so insightful; they really helped me understand what I was asking from my community of supporters, and what they would get out of supporting me. Lastly, I appreciated that if I would freeze up during filming and forget what to say, Start Motion Media was very gentle but firm about prompting me with pieces of my own story/words from our interview to keep the flow of the narrative going.

What qualities made you want to work with Start Motion Media initially?

You were extremely well organized with your thoughts and knowledgeable about the subject material. I can tell you that we interviewed many different commercial advertising video firms and decided to go with you because you clearly knew your space. It didn’t hurt that you were very competitively priced – worth every penny and then some.

The top three positive surprises from working with Start Motion Media were:

There weren’t any major surprises… You were as advertised and that was great. I guess in this day and age that can sometimes come as a surprise – follow through on your deliverables and you’re already ahead of the game.

Regarding my Kickstarter, Corporate, and Startup Video, Start Motion Media was able to help me achieve:

You helped us to have a deeper understanding of how the machine of commercial advertising rolls on… You also helped us create the video we set out to create even after multiple revisions.

The biggest tangible “aha” moment I got from working together was:

Your system was definitely helpful. We had done a lot of research on our back end and it totally validated what we had learned plus added some extra tips here and there. If we were not as organized as we had been coming in your pre-launch work would have served as the gospel.

Start Motion Media was the cinematographer, director, and editor. It was simple and direct. This project was done within budget and on time.

Their focus is strictly on kickstarter video branding & crowdfund marketing. The whole kickstarter video process was on rails. I didn’t have to worry about the details because they had me covered.

There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have been able to raise the money I did with my Commercial without their help. In this extremely thorough and high-integrity service, I received everything I could know about the strategy and science behind a Kickstarter, how to ensure a fully funded project and even email templates to send to backers. On top of all that, Michael was there every step of the way with answers to my questions and an IMMENSE amount of support. He is the best cheerleader!

We got prompt responses. Start Motion Media is very informational when it comes to actually kickstarting a project. This kickstarter video process can be very overwhelming and they will sit down and walk you through it. They want you to succeed in your kickstarter and this is obvious.

I heard Michael give a talk about crowdfunding, and it was clear he had really put in the effort and had the experience to really know it inside and out. His knowledge in that session alone greatly increased our campaign’s chances for success – and the video that Start Motion Media commercial video production company was even better!
