“I had the pleasure of working with Alex to create a 5-minute overview video for Changing Leads Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to introduce at risk youth to horseback riding opportunities. We came to Alex with a very rough idea of what we wanted, and he helped craft our story in a way that would be most impactful and easy to understand for broader audiences. He pulled together an incredible story line, crafted thoughtful interviews for video participants in conjunction with one of our board members, and made everyone feel comfortable on camera. He was extremely communicative throughout the process, met deadlines, and stuck to our budget.
Furthermore, Alex went above and beyond on the day of our event where we were debuting our video – he arrived 2 hours early, helped to coordinate with the tech team at the venue, and supported us throughout the entire evening.
This video took our organization to the next level – and we can’t thank him enough.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of embarking with the talented Alex Vishno and his crew on many video production adventures. Innosight greatly values his work and his collaborate spirit. He’s got a great eye, knows his stuff, keeps his commitments, and goes the extra mile, especially when it comes to editing. Plus, he’s fun to work with.”
Evan I. Schwartz, Director of Storytelling, Innosight, Innovation Consulting
“Alex is a true professional! I entrusted him to manage & produce my executive events as well as document them with a series of videos. The quality of his work was instrumental in the success of my events. He not only did a great job, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed working with him.”
“I had the good fortune to work with Alex Vishno, A2V Media, on a recent project to produce a video for New Canaan Mounted Troop, NCMT, a nonprofit, youth development and therapeutic equestrian center.
Alex set the stage for organized, clearly directed interviews and filming sessions. The preplanning sessions were effective, which lead to seamless interviewing and filming, running like clockwork.
I was very impressed with Alex’s talent in all aspects of the production. His artist eye and superb editing made for a heartfelt, touching video that absolutely featured the best of what our organization does. He nailed it and is a real pro!
At NCMT we work with individuals with special needs and Alex’s sensitivity in front of and behind the camera is extraordinary. He is gifted and gave us a gift in this video.
The entire process was totally stress free. Alex met deadlines and truly exceeded all expectations. He is a joy to work with and I would recommend him for all projects.”
Sara Tucker, Executive Director, New Canaan Mounted Troop
“When we were looking for a solution to create snappy content for our social media (Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat), we were introduced to A2V and Alex Vishno through his work with the City of New Haven. Alex and his team helped us navigate and problem solve a marketing solution to our unique business model, a traveling mobile Irish pub.
On Social and on display, our obstacle had always been to convey that it was a mobile establishment not a brick and mortar business. A2V came onsite for a brief but effective video/photo-shoot and through clever scripting, and repurposing of our existing photo assets they truly helped tell us our story.
We have found that A2V’s video storytelling has enabled us to increase our social media post reactions, 120% increase in videos viewed, and a 50% reduction in cost of our 3 sec views and 61% of users watched the full 60 sec video. We are looking forward to continued relationship with A2V and we would not hesitate in recommending them for any video solutions.”
“As we grow our business and expand our offerings and reach, it is nice to have a partner in Alex that understands the frantic pace of startups and the quick turn around and last minute changes needed to be successful. I feel confident knowing that Alex will be honest about what can be done, provide options at different price levels and explain the differences in understandable language. His ability to take control of a situation and put people at ease in front of a camera along with his editing style and ability to create a story with the content he captures are impressive and come through in the final product.”
“Alex Vishno and his operation A2V Media were an invaluable asset to the New Haven Jazz Festival endeavor. Alex’s fresh and forward thinking ideas helped cultivate new partnerships and raise funding for the event. In addition to his unwavering commitment to the day to the day operations along with regular meetings and updates for the board of directors, Alex helped create an excellent event featuring multiple performers and huge crowds. The sound and lighting A2V provided was excellent, handled professionally, and cannot be overlooked as a true asset to their work. Our festival was a huge success in no small part due to Alex and A2V’s services. Thank You from the Jazz Haven Board of Directors!”
“Alex at A2V was wonderful to work with. He made the whole process of creating a video to showcase our services easy and fun from start to finish. He was able to capture the nature of our business highlighting things that were important to us as well as giving us advise about what he thought would be most important to the viewer. We love the finished product which has definitely helped spread the word about who we are and what we do. We receive comments on it all the time. We look forward to working with Alex again in the near future and highly recommend him for all of your videoing projects.”
“Last year, our organization in need of event planning and production assistance. A2V Media was hired to plan and execute our components of a city-wide event. They were professional, innovative, fun to work with and all of our event partners complimented us on the results achieved by A2V on our behalf. Many thanks to Alex and A2V!”
Win Davis, Executive Director, Town Green Special Services District, New Haven, Connecticut
“So many great things to say about working with Alex and A2V Media I don’t even know where to start. Alex worked with us at my Crossfit gym to film testimonials. We had at the time hired a company to do the editing for us and Alex was just going to shoot the raw footage. Alex, as a favor, did some very quick editing for us so we could get up and running and his cuts were better than the company that took weeks to get us a finished project.
From setting up to prepping the members Alex was awesome! He is very professional, funny and great with helping to coach the members through the process. Since then we no longer use that other company.
I would not hesitate to recommend A2V Media to anyone for any size project.“
“A2V was efficient, professional, and creative. Alex did a great job of teasing out aspects of our company that our customers would find interesting — things that we ‘just do’ in the regular course of business but don’t often think of as unique or appealing. High-quality, social-media-ready video is incredibly valuable for a local business like ours, and Alex made us not one but THREE of those videos after spending only a few hours at our location.”
Ethan Rodriguez-Torrent, Co-Founder & Chief Producer, Escape New Haven
“Alex was excellent to work with! I have no prior experience creating video content, so it was important to me to work with a video producer who could help me with both the vision as well as with staging and technical aspects of executing. From coming up with the concept of the video, to directing me during the shoot, to the editing and after-posting follow-up, Alex was involved every step of the way. Not only was the entire process fun, but we also produced two amazing pieces. Both the brand and I were thrilled with the final products.”
