I get more emotional watching the video than I was on the wedding day! The comment I get most from friends is ‘I didn’t even know you had a videographer there!’

Put simply, our experience with Fade and Focus has been fantastic. Matt and Ryan brought a high level of creativity, work ethic, and professionalism to the table. They engaged members of our school community in meaningful convesrations, explored every area of campus to find the best shots possible, and left smiles on the faces of everyone with which they interacted. They invested the time and energy necessary to understand the cutlture of our school and were able to capture our mission and our message in every piece of footage.

Matt and Ryan then worked their professional magic to turn the raw footage into four different creative, captivating and compelling videos for our various offices. They kept us informed through every stage of the editing process and welcomed our input and collaboration until the finished product was achieved.

The videos that Fade and Focus created for our school have been incredibly well received and will serve as valuable recruitment tools for the Development and Admission Office. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Matt and Ryan who, in addition to being consummate professionals, also happen to be wonderful people as well! Fade and Focus is a reliable and talented company that produces a quality prouct. We highly recommend.

If you are looking for a professional team with extreme creativity, then Matt and Ryan, of Fade and Focus, are the right choice for you.

Our Advancement team met with Ryan during the RFP stage and we were immediately impressed with his vision and body of work from Independent Schools. After deciding on Fade and Focus, the team spent three days on our CT campus capturing natural, candid scenes and conducting on-camera interviews. We were looking for an accurate and concise portrayal of our School - weaving our Mission and Philosophy into every frame. We especially liked the use of interesting angles and selective focus on b-roll footage and the comfort level felt by parents, faculty, and students during the interviews. King will certainly utilize Fade and Focus as we approach our sesquicentennial celebration in 2015.
