I've watched the Torres video numerous times, including on the big screen in RPAC. The more I see it, the more I like it. It's a project of which to be proud. There are some really nice shots in it, some great focus pulls, it moves, and the interview clarifies. The message in the film, which arises out of the exhibit, is important and should be shared. This video provides a vehicle to pass on that message.

It’s very kind and generous of you to offer all this information to Carmen. Too often, we ignore selfless gestures and I want you to know that it’s really impressive that you would take the time to offer Carmen all this superb information coupled with your insights. It confirms me in the belief that we were right to go with you, and stick with you, with all the HTA grad videos and subsequent projects.

My girls and I have looked at our copies - and they are AWESOME! The menu was easy to work from, the quality is fabulous, the sound is awesome - we enjoyed hearing my daughters runners "smack" in her hip hop solo.

We hired Reg Gothard of Masterpiece Video Productions to tape our year end Dance recital. We received a ”Masterpiece” . The time and care put into this project from the beginning was remarkable. The set up and taping, the editing and the finished product were all professional.

Each and every dancer has time in the spotlight. I am very pleased with the DVD and would definitely hire Masterpiece Video Productions again.

Cheer Competitions

The girls have loved how you included the banquet and dance highlights along with little candid clips in the beginning section! It was a pleasure to work with you, as you were very accommodating and were so wonderful to come out ahead of time to make sure that everything was going to work for set-up and location.

Again I cannot thank you enough for everything that you did for our Provincials Competition! I have had only positive comments about the DVD's and I love them myself! They are personalized and give the most amazing overall view of the competition. You have captured those memorable moments and it is truly a masterpiece!

High School Graduation

The HTA Grad video was excellent, it was impressive to see that the 3 hours of video never missed a thing! Lots of memories to go by!!! I especially liked the prom portion of the video, it was great!!!

Just heard from Brenda and thought I would pass it on. She said you did an amazing job with the video! She just raved about it.

“Many thanks for a wonderful job!” (Holly Yaschuk)

“Reg - Awesome job!” (Steve Elliott)

Organizers of TransCanada’s United Way “Days of Caring”

“Thank you for your effort to create the IntensIT video. A video is really the only way to capture the event for others to enjoy and you have done an excellent job.”

Brian Luterbach, Manager, IS, TransCanada PipeLines

“Your video creations have been a hit on many occasions- for example, your video showing our leaders being hit with a wet sponge over and over again. Your timing was impeccable! You set the moments to music and created an entertaining video that shows what good sports our leaders are for the United Way.”

Diana Peters, Director, IS, TransCanada PipeLines

“You single-handedly managed to turn a very resisting, camera shy vice president and directors into ‘actors’ and produce an informational and very entertaining piece of video. Goals, risks and priorities are not very exciting by definition - especially when they are coming from… management. But presenting these in such an interesting form, making them fun where appropriate and supporting all these with your exceptional video shooting and editing skills made your Town Hall video production named “Bob’s Grill” a definite hit amongst the participants and the 200+ viewers alike.

“We sincerely appreciate your talent and sense of humour in helping make IS a great place to work!”

Diana Peters, Director, IS, TransCanada PipeLines

“The video was an innovative and highly successful at two things: 1) delivering key messages and 2) showing a human side to our leaders. Excellent concept that was well received by all.”

“Really enjoyed Bob's Grill" - Hilarious.!!!”
