Recommendations

I found working with Mark and Patty to be a real pleasure. They were always flexible, cheerful, and innovative. They continually “went the extra mile” to ensure we got the best possible footage for our project.

Mark and Patty are hands down two of the best videographers I've had the pleasure of working with. They made very efficient use of time and helped make it an extremely fun experience for the whole team.

The level of skill and dedication to getting the right angle, perfect lighting, and making sure that we had ample takes to provide editing a lot of options to choose from helped ease any concerns that we may have had. When it was all done and said, I thought we did a great job of capturing our company culture and they are officially extended members of the ICM and TCG family!

I look forward to working with Crystal Pyramid again very soon and recommend them to everyone. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
