Here is what some of my customers and colleagues have to say about me and my work:

I’ve worked with Barry over the past three years and it’s been great working with him. He has extensive knowledge of every facet of video production including staging, lighting, camera work, and audio. In that time, he’s shown he can get the best out of people with hugely different talent levels.

Jeff Koch, Microsoft

Barry was able to bring the presentations to life with his humor and expert instructions. He is a top-notch director, and a joy to collaborate with.

Phillip Helsel, Microsoft

Barry has a keen eye for detail to always create a very polished end product. Barry is always in a good spirit and it rubs off on every one in the studio to make everyone relaxed and focused on the job at hand.

Martain Coetzer, Microsoft

I recommend Barry for positions in a variety of capacities within video production, as he is skilled in many trades including producing, editing, shooting and working with a Tricaster. He is productive, and can work with little to no direction. He understands large corporations, and can work within them.

Jennifer O'Brien, Pyrimide Productions

The class DVD was the focal point of the “Turning 70 Event” and was a very big, big hit! Thank you for the great DVD production!

Andre' Dulce

"Barry stepped up to the plate and took leadership roles on ambitious documentary productions ... He served as Director of Photography for “Shipwrecks of Lake Union: Seattle’s Hidden History,” and as a Director for “Virginia V: Last of the Mosquito Fleet.”  In both cases he distinguished himself with his organizational skills, creativity, attention to detail and dedication to getting the job done right."

Vaun Raymond, VSR Video

"I have always found Barry to be an exceptional student and later an industry professional who exhibited a remarkable talent for all areas of digital video production... I think you will find him an asset to your team"

Jane Winslow, Firedancer Productions

"He has always done a professional job and made my day easier... I have no hesitation recommending Barry for any production or post-production job"

Joseph Hudson, Acme Production Services
