Takoda made an excellent music video for the track "Smile". He did a great job shooting video at multiple locations, editing the entire video seamlessly and getting the project back in time for uploading. I really appreciated his attention to detail and the collaboration process as the video was made, it captured the essence of the song and message extremely well. Thanks and recommendation to him and I would suggest him highly.

Takoda did an amazing job with the musicvideo to our song Pain makes you live. We are so pleased.
He really worked his magic with the idea of the video and put it in moving frames beautifully.
I got information all through the process of the work with ideas and scenes that was shot etc. Much appreciated.
The final result is stunning and I highly recommend him. Work with this pro and you won't regret it!

We recently made a music video with Takoda Shane and the experience was an unforgettable one. We did not do all the prep we would have liked to due to time constraints but Takoda took the loose ideas we had and fashioned it into something amazing in only a few hours. Working with him felt incredibly comfortable though his pace was rapid. He was constantly racing around taking shots we couldn't understand until we saw the final product. We were stunned by how fast he made our ideas a reality and how quickly he came up with new ideas on the spot. The experience was such a blast that we are already planning on another video soon. His knowledge of editing was also mind blowing as he had the video done a day after we finished shooting complete with a plethora of dramatic effects that really made it pop. Don't hesitate to work with Takoda Shane if you get the chance. We will work with him as much as possible in the future.
