  • I am so thrilled with the job Audio Visual Consultants did for me on the Actor’s Slate my agent requested. This is more than a photograph, it’s the “living you” for casting directors to see you. We filmed just 4 takes and then adjusted the background and we were finished in less than an hour! I walked out with a DVD and was able to upload to my sites for auditions. My agent is thrilled and I strongly recommend actor’s take this step to promote themselves. It’s always better LIVE!

    Rebecca Faiola, Owner, Blue Moon Productions, LLC.

  • “We were very pleased with the videotape you made for us three years ago, and that is why we had no hesitation calling on you this time. We are saving thousands of dollars on instructor fees. Overall, the videotapes have helped increase the revenues of this company many times over the cost to produce the tapes.”
