Derek is always a pleasure to have on set. He is extremely knowledgable and knows how to get the job done the right way the first time. He is a wealth of knowledge and is very dedicated which equals great success. I recommend Derek to anyone who is needing quality work and a dependable person to take your project from concept to reality.

Derek Mindler is a true class act and humble. Professional and detail oriented, Derek is an incredible filmmaker to have on your set. He is not only able to bring new ideas to fruition but is a great collaborator. I have worked with him on many jobs and would be happy to continue to do so in the future. I highly recommend bringing Derek onto your next project.

Derek brings a calm and patience presence to every project and every set I have worked on with him. His ability to navigate under the stressful production schedule brings a breath of fresh air to everyone around him. He has an incredible eye for detail and just when you think the shot is as good as it'll ever get Derek has a new idea to give the video that extra something you're looking for.
