    Dan has been a pleasure to work with on 2 different projects, He is on time, professional, asks pertinent questions to ensure he captures the intent of the project, and easy to work with. i look forward to another project with him.

  • Tim Fulton / Founder Ramper Innovations.

    I had never produced a video and really only had a concept of what I wanted. Dan helped me refine the idea, gave me the information and direction needed. He service was quick and the product he produced was spot on for what I needed.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm self taught for the most part. I keep up with trending technology and styles via the trade mags and knowing what I like.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

For corporate, commercial and broadcast work each job is custom bid. There is no "one size fits all" and I will work with you and within your budget to produce the optimum product.

For events I do offer some package rates. It will depend on your Thumbtack request.

I offer a 10% discount to active duty and retired military. Thank you for your service!

My brother and I used to make super 8 movies when we were kids. I never stopped.

Corporate - Marketing content for web sites, commercials and training videos.

Non-profit - Crowd sourcing and fundraising videos.

Bands and Theater Companies - Live music, dance, plays, recitals.

Private Events - Weddings, Funerals, Anniversary, Retirement.

Military - Special events and training.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was Director of Photography, Camera Operator and Post production supervisor for a 6 episode series and pilot. Most of the crew were interns and so there was a lot of teaching going on during production. It was a fun shoot with a great script and cast. I had to juggle a lot of moving parts for over a year from pre-production budgeting to final deliverables. It was a challenging and rewarding experience!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask questions and don't be afraid to give us feedback on what you want in a video. Every customer has a unique vision and we try very hard to exceed your expectations.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

How much time and effort goes into post-production? Shooting is only about 1/3 of my work. The rest of the "magic" is in post.
