Kevin was terrific to work with – he took the time to understand the context of the project and exactly what we needed, then took creative ownership and produced a thoughtful, moving video that became the heart of the exhibit. He was flexible and responsive as the project evolved, met deadlines even when unforeseen delays came up on our end, and communicated clearly throughout the process. I would work with Kevin again, no question!
I had the pleasure of working with Kevin through the Wing Luke Museum. He and I were members of a Community Advisory Committee working with the Museum to develop and curate a new exhibit. A major contribution Kevin provided was a 20-minute video included in the exhibit's audience-interaction kiosk. He effectively and thoughtfully took the mountain of photos, archives, news clips, home videos, video interviews, and oral histories related to the exhibit and crafted a very effective and engaging short film. The tone of the piece and the overarching message fit beautifully with the exhibit and the Museum's aim to educate and inspire. With a very tight deadline, Kevin also cut together a trailer from the longer video down to just over 3 minutes for the exhibit's opening reception. What he lost in running time, he more than made up for in sheer impact. The trailer was urgent, precise, and, most importantly, invited the audience to learn more. Working with Kevin was very smooth. He listened to constructive feedback and integrated notes that best served the film and the vision of the Museum. I would be happy to work with Kevin again.
