I have nothing but positive things to say about working with Tory and Dax. Turning my simple vision for a promotional video into a love letter to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with beautiful photography, well-edited sound, and transitions, they simply exceeded my expectations. As both Tory and Dax have an innate understanding of how to work in a co-creative way, they are extremely patient, cooperative, professional, yet easy-going. They listened to me, but true to their co-creative spirit were able to make their own exceptionally positive creative decisions to capture the essence of what I was hoping to convey. They intuitively found that essence, and the end result is like meditation itself.
