"I NEEDVID created an awesome video to represent my company and brand. Because of them I was able to market my Yoga Studio in NYC in ways never imagined before. They had great ideas that steered me from conventional approaches I had in mind. As a production company they handled everything from shoot to post and I am thrilled with the finished project! Thank you I NEEDVID"
"We were able to shoot this music video with very little lead time and with a top-notch cast and crew. The Director and Producer understood our goals and worked hard to capture the spirit, energy and charm of the song, honoring the "star" (who was also the singer/lyricist) in every way. We now have a beautiful product, have already heard "I love it" from multiple marketing people, and are super excited as we move forward with plans for a launch in the international markets."
