March 2012 

I first was introduced to Steve of SKB Videography in the spring of 2010. I was immediately taken by Steve’s professional yet jovial nature and obvious desire to truly listen to what I (potential client) wished to achieve.

I have since invited Steve to work with me on more than one occasion and am pleased to state that I certainly made the right choice in selecting SKB Videography to film and direct me in moving my business to the next level by capturing on film what I do and enjoy.

Although prior to meeting Steve I had never performed my work live in front of a video camera, Steve had a way to make me feel completely relaxed right from the start. 

Steve is not only a professional videographer, he is also just a “great guy” to be around. Steve and I have developed more than a business relationship; we have become friends along the way. I would not hesitate to urge anyone considering filming any undertaking, be it to showcase their business or even a family event, to contact SKB Videography first so that in the unlikely event they might want to make comparisons they have a bona fide professional model to compare other videographers to. Steve not only utilizes his years of experience to capture on film the best his customers have to offer, but is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to marketing as well. 

I am looking forward to making my next DVD with SKB Videography in the very near future.

Dear Steve

Thank you for all the time and effort that was put in to making our Employee Orientation video. Having never undertaken a project such as this before, we were unsure what we were getting into. You made the process painless and the final result is exactly what we were looking for.

I appreciate the fact that you insist on getting things right, even if that means another trip to site to get more footage. Your professionalism and attention to detail do not go unnoticed, and your patience with the process itself is much appreciated.

I would not hesitate to recommend your services, and if we decide another video is required, you will be the first to get a call.

Thanks again Steve - it has been a pleasure working with you.

Yours truly,

Tara Moore
Corporate Resource Manager

Dear Steve,

Thank you for the exceptional service.  The care you show in providing a quality product that is to the satisfaction of the client is wonderful.  In today's fast paced corporate marketplace it is nice to work with someone who truly cares about the customer.

Under arduous circumstances you came through for us.  Without your technical expertise we would have had no useable footage.

Thank you,

Valhalla Communication worked with Petro-Canada's Finance Unit to plan and deliver a strategy workshop in Calgary in May of 2005.  SKB Videography prepared a five minute video from the event featuring a keynote address and interview with Petro-Canada senior executives.

"The organization of the event was flawless and the video produced by SKB and Valhalla continues to be used as a key introduction of the importance of our strategy in town hall sessions being held for all Finance Unit staff and in strategy discussion with our business executives. Thank you for an excellent job."

Director of the Upstream/Oil Sands Systems group and program manager for the event



Thank you, Steve, for the great job on the safety orientation video you did for our company, Deer Creek Energy Limited.  The final product is such great quality and really delivers all the safety messages and important information we must deliver in a consistent manner. 

You were very skilled in being able to assist me in putting it all together even when I did not know what to put into the final product.  Your extra help in editing the script was so valuable in ensuring the final product was a highly polished presentation.

Every time we deliver the safety video to another group of workers, someone always comments on how good it is and how it's right to the point - not like other videos they have seen. 

Your easy manner and creativity makes it very easy to do a project like the safety orientation video and I hope we can do project like this again in the future.

Dear Steve;
In regards to a testimonial, I would just like to say that it was a pleasure working with you and that the finished product has received great reviews from all our staff and indeed some of our major clients.  The addition of such a concise and professional training tool will greatly benefit our organizational needs.  With the final cost at about 20% of what I thought it would be to develop such a video, I must say it was wise money well spent.

"It was a real pleasure for me to work with Steve Blackwell at SKB Videography on the production of Chariot's Bender Die Change video. Steve has the patience and the technical skills to bring about a work that is truly useful to his client, as the Bender Die Change video turned out to be for Chariot. And I particularly liked Steve's ability to grasp the "big picture" of an actual bender die change, so that the important details were brought out in our video. I am confident to recommend SKB Videography as being capable of producing a successful video for a wide range of client needs."

"Dear Steve,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great job you did on our assembly video. It was a pleasure working with you. The process went much quicker and took less effort than I anticipated.
Thanks to the quality of the video, we just received an order for 270 chairs. Their comments on the video where extremely positive and it was because of the video that we edged out our competition.

We are planning to have video's made of all our products over the next 6 months.
I look forward to working with you again."
