"I just wanted to write a quick note of thanks to let you know that the video has gotten rave reviews. It was, in a word, perfect.
Cliff and I have been receiving compliments all day. In fact, our keynote speaker, who is a best selling author of Marketing books, said, and I quote: "That was the best video of its kind I have ever seen!"
Thank you all, not only for delivering a quality product, but for a quality process as well. Your responsiveness, patience, ability to boil our key messages into these critical words, and, dare I say it, sheer poetry, made the whole venture a success we want to share with you.
I am certain we will work together again in the future. I hope you can catch up on your sleep now that we're no longer making changes! "
"Last night's dinner was one of the best ever; and I attribute a good measure of its success to the fact that we showed your superb two minute video at the outset of the program. If anyone in attendance was at all confused about the Associates' mission or identity before the dinner, that confusion was dispelled by the clarity and graphic beauty with which the video explained things. Even long time supporters… told me that they found the video very informative (and quite beautiful. Most had no idea what extraordinary items we've been responsible for conserving...)
Bruce's seamless integration of music, images and narration...It doesn't get any better! I count the Associates very lucky to have such formidable talents in our corner! "

"Collaborating with Bruce to create our sons’ B’nei Mitzvah video was a total delight. I had a few thoughts about what I wanted, but was daunted by the technical aspects of video creation and editing. He possesses all of the technical skills that I lack (and some that I didn’t even know existed!) and his manner is so pleasant and encouraging and kind. Bruce kept me on task, and was excited to share fun add-ons that took root in his creative mind and truly enhanced the project. What could have been a dry slideshow set to music, became a short film highlighting our wonderful boys and truly reflecting their individual personalities. Our party guests were blown away by the professional, entertaining and perfectly timed presentation and we now have an heirloom to cherish. The end product far exceeded my expectations."
“Bruce had a knack for really bringing our family together and highlighting some of our most memorable experiences. He interviewed several of us to get a sense of who we were. Then used that material to weave together a rich and, in some instances, emotional account of our story. I think because he has been doing this for so long, he has a natural instinct for finding and focusing on the story. I particularly appreciated how carefully he listened to me and the variety of suggestions that he made along the way. My family was absolutely delighted. I’ve now shown it to many of my friends and they, too, are interested in doing something like this. "

"It was a pleasure to work with Bruce Bordett. His skills and knowledge were invaluable in helping our organization create its first video and communicating our message to the public. In addition to his considerable technical skills, his warm friendly manner was very helpful, especially for the video participants, many of whom had never appeared on camera before."

"Bruce Bordett is a consummate professional and extremely creative. We presented him with a difficult challenge, boiling down over eight hours of frenetic workshop activity into a coherent, compelling 50-minute presentation. The result: A great sales and educational tool for our customers. We highly recommend Bordett- MediaWorks."

"What an incredible video. You guys have really outdone yourself this time. The energy, music, and content were outstanding. The video was extremely well received this morning at the company meeting.
Great work, as always. Thank you."

"Wow! I couldn't agree more with Kevin --- I was rocked!
The comments I have been hearing all day have been fantastic.
Nice work watch it, you keep raising the bar......"
Steve Sayre VP Marketing,
"Thank you so much for your help in pulling together the awesome video on the Lotus Operating Principles! What I received was so much more than what I asked for. I really appreciate your taking the time to ask what I needed and for what purpose, and then delivering something that was much better than I could have imagined.
Incidentally, I'm not the only one who liked the video. As I had planned, I used it to kickoff our monthly organization meeting. I've now lost count of the number of people (including our VP) who have commented on what a great idea, what a fun video, and how energized they felt as a result.
People LOVE this video! Thanks again for your timely and imaginative help! "
"The response to that wonderful Video you provided has been fantastic. It creates such a great spirit and there have not been too many days that someone hasn't made mention of it. Others are beginning to ask if they may show it in their venues. What an amazing contribution this has been!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you…"
