What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The videos have had a great influence on my business. I use them to build trust in new client relationships. By the time we meet face-to-face, my clients feel like they already know me. That extra connection helps us cross those thresholds into a working relationship.
It was a chill and professional atmosphere throughout the entire project. Votary Films was serious about their craft, but they could still joke around, which put me at ease. I was so happy with their work that I recommended them to my clients and colleagues, two of which have since become Votary Films clients.
How did Votary Films perform from a project management standpoint?
It was a quick turnaround. From the time we shook hands and signed a contract, I started to see progress right away. It took about three weeks to gather the footage, edit it, add audio, and ask for my input. Since I run a contracting service, I’m very comfortable with coordinating people, but not so much for video production. Votary Films really stepped in and took over all of that for me.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Votary Films seemed like a working family. They clearly looked out for each other and knew each other well. They traveled a lot as a team, and it showed in their relationship dynamic. I also appreciated the laid-back atmosphere in their office. At one point, when I was visiting Jed, I remember one of their employees was getting frustrated at his desk with a creative block of some sort. He got up, picked up a guitar, and strummed a short tune to get back into the flow. Nobody flinched—it was perfectly normal to them.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I can’t think of anything they could do better. The Votary Films team truly is made up of masters at their craft.
Any advice for potential customers?
Trust in the process and stick to your vision. Jed and his team will take the information a client has and turn it into an amazing finished product.
