  • "I’ve never been happier with a video project. I have worked in TV for almost 20 years and Gearshift is the best production house I’ve EVER worked with. I can’t recommend their work highly enough."

    Working in Media, having a good demo reel that shows how you look and speak on camera is crucial. That's why Holden Kushner put his trust in Gearshift, and came away with a great demo reel to show producers and get himself more work. Demo reels are great for any aspiring actor or news anchor and they're incredibly quick and easy to produce. All you need to do is get a script, practice reading it a few times, and then give us a call to book your slot! Easy as cake. Thanks to Holden Kushner for his kind words on his experience working with our studio!

  • "Jim's work was stunning." - Paul Samakow

    "I needed a television commercial. I hired Jim at GearShift TV and went to his local studio. I could not have been more impressed by his studio. First impressions are important and often are great predictors of what is to come. True here. Jim's work was stunning. He produced both 30 second and a 60 second spots for me that are now running, and are pulling more inquiries, by a large factor, than any other spots I have ever run. The difference is the quality, attention to detail, and creative design he brought to the finished product. Even my friends have seen the spots and commented positively. I've hired Jim now twice more and will continue to use him as my only "go to" vendor for this work." - Paul A Samakow, Attorney at Law Paul was a great client and we were thrilled to help him produce TV commercials for his business and since then he's done great! Congratulations Paul!

  • "We are going to use these videos in ways I hadn't even thought of before coming to Gearshift TV" - Dave Frees

    "I do Trust and Estates work and one of the things we've been hearing over and over again as Tom [Foster] has helped us to make video 1) higher quality and 2) more prominent on the website is that people 'I really felt like I knew you by the time I came in.' They consistently report that the videos made them feel comfortable with me. It's also true that most of them, after they meet me, say 'You are way more serious on your videos than you are in person and you should let that come through.' But I think that could be dangerous! Video has really helped people enter a new level of trust building." - Dave Frees Dave Frees is a attorney located in Pennsylvania specializing in estate planning and he is using video on his website to convert his web visitors to clients.
