walters family: i spent a few minutes with mr. stamats describing what i
hoped the video would portray... i wanted it to be short and powerful...
i asked mr. stamats if it was possible to demonstrate the courage and faith
of the family as they went through the year following their tragedy and he
said he would do the best he could.
by the time i returned to the office i had a message waiting for me from mr. stamats who was already full of ideas for the video and wanting more information from me. within two weeks mr. stamats has produced a twenty-three minute video that surpassed my wildest expectations.
the best part of the video was his presentation of courage and faith. we have shown it to several others and all have been highly complimentary of the professional quality of the production and the tremendously powerful presentation it made. i have not personally seen a better production of a damage claim on video and suspect that if a competition were held for such items ours would win hands down.
i would like to also emphasize how pleasant it was to work with mr. stamats. he was always courteous and cooperative. never did i note any arrogance or professional condescension. if questioned about why he did something in a particular way he had an excellent, well-reasoned, explanation.
when i approached mr. stamats with the project i told him we had a tight budget. i didn't expect to get anything near what he produced for the budget i gave him. he met the budget and produced a product that would have probably cost us three or four times as much had we gone to one of his competitors.
for any future video work of this nature mr. stamats will be the only person i consider.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________ our organization has benefitted tremendously from the video services
and production of richard stamats.
mr. stamats is highly skilled in taking a video production from start to finish.
in a wonderful and comfortable manner he helped us to analyze our needs for a promotional video and then produced a very powerful tape for us.
we must work under a limited budget and i am certain that his commitment went far beyond our budget just so that the project was as successful as it is. this tape will be shared with our sister organizations across the nation because of the message it delivers in very interesting and clear terms.
he was also helpful to our organization in the development of exceptional training videos.
mr. stamats is a very talented person who is easy to work with. i highly recommend him and his work. please feel free to contact me about his ability and his work.

xap tape proved to be the highlight of our recent sales meeting. we showed
it the first time during one of the cocktail hours and it received a rave
review. we even had requests for a second showing, so we had it rerun during
the cocktail hour of our president’s
club banquet. everyone seemed to be so very pleased with the really super
production you put together. very few industrial videos can match the clever
and exceptional qualities you put into this production.
richard, thanks for putting this together. it was enjoyed by all.
