Testimonials – MEM Projects

Bay Area Puma Project

Nell produced a video that was able to tell an incredibly compelling story about my master’s project. She was extremely flexible and receptive to ideas, and was most concerned with telling the story that I wanted to see told. The end result was a product that was second to none in terms of production value and quality, and perfectly matched what I had envisioned.

Mountain Manners

Nell was a blast to work with! I felt extremely taken care of throughout the entire process. Nell is a great communicator both in-person and via e-mail. I felt like I could talk to her about anything and wasn’t afraid to share my ideas and vision for the video. It was -10 degrees when she filmed my interview, which was amazing and FREEZING!  Nell is a trooper! I was thrilled with the additional footage of the Gunnison Valley that Nell included to make the video engaging and relevant. The final product is perfect. I was hoping it would be inspiring and good representation of Mountain Manners, and it is! Don’t just take my word for it, my fiance was tearing up before the credits even started rolling. Choosing to work with Nell this semester has been on of my best graduate school decisions!

Conservation Research

Nell did a beautiful job of sharing the broad purpose and goals of my research project through storytelling, while accurately representing the small details and nuances of my work.  She took the time to understand my project and her knowledge made communications with her clear and easy.  The resulting film is a product of her hard-work, passion, and her ability to work collaboratively with her subjects.  It will be a useful tool for me to communicate my project visually and concisely as I develop my career.

Calder Farms

Nell was great to work with! She is completely professional yet made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was able to transform my story from a conversation to a polished product that I am proud to showcase. Nell was also willing to film in -30 degree temperatures, which isn’t fun for anyone, let alone someone working a camera, having to take on and off her gloves. I highly recommend Nell and New Vistas Vistas Media.

Connecting Colorado and India

After spending so much time and giving so much energy to my project work in India, it was wonderful to get to see this experience put into a video. Because of the distance, Nell and I were not able to interview in person, but she was still able to create a great product. The use of pictures and videos of my experience in India came together beautifully with the story of my project work. Thank you Nell for all your time and energy in putting this together!
