“I worked with Dave for nearly four years. He is patient, kind, and oh so very funny. He taught me everything I ever wanted to know about footage with the patience of a saint. I must have asked him the same questions five times each. Beyond that, he is extremely conscientious -- can't remember if Dave ever missed a day of work in that time. I doubt it. He is a master of his craft and an asset to any company where he may choose to accept a position.”

Bryan Heath

"Regardless of the type of assignment, Dave brought his strong editing skills to bear with a craftsman-like attitude and a ready willingness to meet client needs that was highly appreciated by myself, as facility owner, and by clients who keep us in business. He definitely added value to the post services we provide"

Dave Hill is the critical path when it comes to footage. He can be relied upon to develop producer connections, acquire appropriate content and manage footage post production right through to upload. He has even been the closer on important stock footage deals. Dave also keeps up with the latest industry trends and competition. He has well rounded skills in product/project management.
