What Clients Say About Our Music Video Work
I just watched the first minute and LOVE it. (A few minutes later…) It’s fantastic. Absolutely nothing major in terms of pacing/colors/movement, we love it.
Andy, Wow, really proud of what you’ve accomplished, video looks amazing and can’t stop tearing up….
It was an incredible day of filming at the Shenkman Arts Centre and locations around Ottawa for the soon to be released music video for the song Awake. Special THANKS to Andy, Lorelei, Dave, Tina & MC from Hotcakes New Media…in Ottawa! An incredible team of creative professionals!
Thank you so much for your amazing quality of production. I couldn’t be happier with how the video turned out! I love all the shots of Ottawa and surroundings.
