First Option Team,
Just viewed the second video and wanted to let you know that it is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.
Really amazing.
With your work on both videos so far, you have brought us to a whole new level. Captured the essence of SACNAS is such a short clip and with such energy and meaning. I am MOST IMPRESSED.
Thank you all and can’t wait to see what’s next!

Love the second draft of the PCR History video.  It made me cry.  You and Marcus captured the story of PCR beautifully.

The Gies Awards

Hello Paula,
From the bottom of my heart, I want to personally thank you on behalf of the ADEAGies Foundation Board of Trustees for one of the best Gala productions.  You are indeed a professional with superb credentials and all that I can say is thank you for caring about the ADEAGies family.  Everyone was just impressed with the professional videography, music, timing, lighting and superb sound system.  My response----Paula – the lady with the Midas, EF Hutton touch J.  I am already thinking about next year and look forward, again, to your leadership.
You are just outstanding at just making people LOOK GOOD!

Dr. Leo Rouse
Chair, ADEAGies Foundation Board of Trustees

This year surpassed all previous awards ceremonies and it was no surprise. It was a wonderful and glorious celebration of incredibly noteworthy honorees. It is truly difficult to improve on such extraordinary success, but there is always next year. Thanks to all,
