What clients are saying about me and my work


As the Senior Communications Manager at Envision Education, I wholeheartedly recommend Eric! He helped us produce a phenomenal video to share our mission with families, students, teachers, and donors. We were beyond happy with the result — the video is a beautiful showcase of our schools.

Our video is fantastic, but I have to say that the true highlight of working with Eric was the process he took us through to get to the end product. He asks the right questions, knows how to plan, knows when decisions need to be made, and facilitates the entire process skillfully. This was especially important to me, as I did not have a ton of experience with video production. He helped us define the story we wanted to tell and knew exactly how to prepare for and structure our interviews to authentically elicit the messages we wanted. Eric helped me learn as we went, making the work even more valuable.

We were also really impressed — and thrilled — with how important it was to him to truly understand our mission so that he could tell our story well. Throughout the project, I felt confident that Eric “got it” and that he was as much a shepherd of our mission and vision as we are.

The crew he works with is equally skilled and talented; the camera work and editing was amazing.

It has been such a joy to share our video with our staff, friends and supporters. I’ve seen it a million times, and it still makes me so happy every time I see it — our students, teachers, and schools just SHINE.

Finally, there is no doubt that we will work with Eric again. He brings talent, humor, professionalism, fun, learning and results to his work, and we look forward to future projects with him.

Eric was an amazing partner to have on the MOOC on blended learning that the Christensen Institute, New Teacher Center, and Silicon Schools Fund did on Coursera. Not only is Eric a great videographer, who was amazing with the camera and lighting, thoughtful and artistic with his shots, and professional in the way he worked with outside subjects and in schools, but Eric is also incredibly creative and thoughtful in shaping a film’s narrative, and he was critical to us throughout the MOOC in shaping such a compelling overall product. We received tons of compliments about how great the video was in the MOOC and how sharp the content was, and Eric deserves credit for all that and more.

Working with Eric was a very positive experience! Not only did I get a beautifully made video for my Kickstarter fundraising campaign but there were unexpected treasures. Eric worked closely with me to develop a message that was meaningful and truthful and in the end, reconnected me with my original passion for getting into the baking business. It was very much a collaborative effort. I had a few ideas & images that he was able to incorporate and mash with his ideas & images. In the end, he created a compelling story, and not only did I raise the money I needed on Kickstarter, but I also ended up with this incredible marketing tool. Just the other day I met a woman who recognized me from the video and asked to give me a big hug – she appreciated what I was doing and connected with the story. Thank you Eric, it was a pleasure to work with you!

As a legal non-profit we were interested in a professional, yet affordable, video production of two 45-minute training videos. Eric and his skilled crew completely fit the bill. Here’s what we liked:

1) Eric was organized, detail-oriented, and took the time to meet with us to understand our goals in producing the video.
2) The whole crew’s engaging approach to the work made all of the “actors” feel very comfortable before, during, and after each scene.
3) Despite the complexity of the project, Eric accommodated our input and met every deadline we set for him.
4) The post-production editing was thoughtful and creative – just what we needed.

I would recommend Eric to anyone considering this type of video production. In fact, we’re already planning on at least one follow-up project and will be happy to work with Eric on that too!

Eric is a phenomenal producer in the “non-profit” space. He quickly understood our mission and set about using his talents to bring our story to life. Talented, timely and all around nice guy!

Huckleberry Youth Programs recently hired Eric as a video editor for a compelling interview with one of our former clients. We were blown away by the results. Eric was able to work within our modest nonprofit budget to produce a high-quality, creative, and emotionally moving video that we can share on our website and with our major donors. He was extremely efficient and had wonderful suggestions every step of the way. Huckleberry looks forward to working with Eric again in the future! Highly recommended.

Eric took an unpolished vision for a promotional video and applied his extensive creative talents, project management experience, and technical skills to get the job done, on time, and on budget.

Eric worked for me and a colleague to shoot a video for a non-profit project involving health care. The subject matter was somewhat sensitive. We found Eric to be exceptionally skillful in all aspects of this project. He was timely, thorough, and thoughtful during the whole process, which involved several get-togethers. I had never “performed” in a video and he gave excellent suggestions and direction and made me feel so comfortable. He was timely in responding to emails and did a fantastic job editing, even going to way more time and trouble than he was paid for to fix a particular issue of filming. I’d work with him again in a second. I highly recommend Eric as a videographer.
