I’ve been working with Rich and his team for several years. They are adept at taking footage from one shoot and creating multiple videos for multiple platforms, which helps me create cost-efficiencies with everything I shoot. The Tolsma team also project manages extremely well under tight deadlines—and they’re always a pleasure to work with.
