Rick is a talented professional who is not only very creative, but is also excellent with clients. We were crewing a large production from out of state and Rick was instrumental in referring additional crew and equipment houses. Not to mention he owns a lot of equipment which was a bonus. I would not hesitate to recommend Rick.
Rick is hands down one of the most creative and professional individuals in the industry. There is no need to worry how the shoot will turn out or if the client will be happy when Rick is on location.
Rick is not only a fantastic creative resource, but he is a consummate professional. The shoot that we most recently worked on together dealt with a very sensitive subject matter and Rick was both respectful and focused on capturing the emotion. I would recommend Rick hands down!
Rick Seefried is a pleasure to work with...talented and a true porfessional. I am impressed with both the quality of his work and in the way he works with my clients.
I contracted Rick for a shoot in a remote area. Even when the weather threw a wrench in our plans, Rick was full of ideas on how to make it work. My clients-- and THEIR clients-- enjoyed working with him as well. Rick is an experienced, conscientious videographer with a great attitude.
Rick was an exceptional professional with a great eye and unique amount of talent that he brought to the set. Rick's flexibility allowed us to get more done than we anticipated in less time than we had originally planned, always a bonus no matter what the project! We were thrilled with his work and we are already in the process of hiring him again. He would be an asset to any project!
I have worked with Rick on several occasions with great success. His experience gives him the ability to film an interview in the most impactful manner. He seems to know just when to come in for that critical closeup. Very easy to work with as both he and his assistant work with extreme professionalism.
