“I just watched your film Royal Lepage Comox Valley Snow to Surf Adventure Relay Event, 29 April 2012. Great job! You managed to capture the whole race (the inserts and b roll served you well) and the footage looks good. Love the kayak flip with the Go Pro Hero! Very cool race! It's inspiring me to get out and enjoy nature again...The interviewees looked quite comfortable talking with you - looks like you put them at ease - a good skill if you will be making docs in the future.” Teresa M, Vancouver, BC


“Angela took our initial ideas and put together a website that was beyond our expectations. It stands out as being highly informative and fully personalized, and above all, it does not look like sites compiled by large commercial outfits. Customers have specifically commented on it for its quality and thoroughness. Angela also took on all the required videography and photography with ease and professionalism. Her background in forest products was apparent as we discussed possibilities during the site's conception.” - Tim F., Black Creek, BC, Canada.
