John Gillespie is a creative and talented videographer. He works with a keen eye for detail, a gift for storytelling and a passion for helping others. It was a true pleasure to work with John. John is decisive, efficient and a master editor. I worked alongside him on several complicated video shoots and he and his team exceeded my expectations, both in pre-production and the final product. If you’re looking for a powerful way to tell your story and have a great experience along the way, John and Gillespie Productions are the way to go.
John and his team helped us articulate an ambitious vision for our video on a one-day shoot. They were collaborative partners throughout the process, supporting and executing our concepts, and suggesting improvements when the opportunity arose. They worked comfortably and professionally with students and adults alike. We were thrilled to have our video honored among the best in the nation by the National School Public Relations Association in 2019. Gillespie Productions was a driving force behind achieving a high-quality result that exceeded our expectations.
Just wanted to thank you, your team (and our team!) for the video production! They deliver the message consistently, concisely, in a well-produced package. Our previous attempts fell short of what you’ve put together here. Admittedly, we’ve gotten better at putting the message to words over the last few years. But it’s so nice to see them come to life in a way we haven’t seen before.
I strongly recommend Gillespie Productions for several reasons. John and his team are professional and thorough in getting the message we wanted to convey in our videos. I was impressed that the production was finished ahead of schedule. It was also fun to work with John and his team. There were many different moving parts to our production with multiple companies and a variety of topics that needed to be communicated. John and his team took the complexities of this project and made it look easy (when I knew it truly wasn’t).
Since the inception of Gillespie Productions, I have had the privilege of working with John and his company on several video projects for the Green Bay Police Department and the 2020 Wisconsin Command College.
I cannot say enough about Gillespie Productions and how satisfied our agency has been with the products he has provided to us. The first video his company created was one of two recruiting videos he produced for the Green Bay Police Department. He has also created an informational video for the Green Bay Police Foundation. Because of excellent work by Gillespie Productions, I recommended John’s company to create 9 videos for the Wisconsin LEDR (Law Enforcement Death Response) Team, as part of our final class project for the Wisconsin Command College.
I have received phone calls from police departments across the country inquiring, as to who produced our recruiting video. The emotional impact and the quality of the videos are second to none. I had an officer tell me that he gets “goose bumps” every time he watches the recruiting video. To this day, I still have people comment on how great the videos are. The videos have been invaluable to our agency and I am very proud of the final products created.
John is extremely easy to work with and will make accommodations to meet any of your needs. It’s amazing seeing the process work from concept to the final product. He is a true master of his craft and I would recommend John and Gillespie Productions anytime to anyone. I cannot thank John enough for everything he and his company have done for the Green Bay Police Department and Law Enforcement in the State of Wisconsin.
When I look back on my career, I have a feeling that the Bay Port High School Class of 2020 Commencement Introduction Video will be among the most influential projects I will have worked on.
Not only did the outcome exceed our expectations, but the work leading up to it was creative, efficient, and, most of all, fun. I appreciate the creative talents and dedication, especially on a tight deadline, by the Gillespie Productions team.
My first experience with Gillespie Productions was fantastic, and I highly recommend Gillespie Productions for those who have a unique story to share!
I was most impressed that the folks at Gillespie Productions took the time to learn the story of my company’s history thoroughly in order to tell our story accurately. It is a 120+ year history of an independent telephone company and Gillespie definitely did not “phone it in” (sorry I couldn’t resist). They had no problem with my edit changes near the end and they delivered my video on time! The value of this service is incredible! I wouldn’t have been able to come close to making anything near the quality that our video from Gillespie has.
Project: Fox Valley Technical College
The Gillespie Productions team created a branding video and several individual testimonial videos for our college. The process – from our first meeting to the final product – could not have gone better. John and his team were patient, listened to our needs and we worked together to create a vision for this project. Most of all, they approach projects from a storytelling perspective. They value sound… they value video.. and they value writing. We would highly recommend them to others.
Our best work gets done when we can work face-to-face with you. We travel anywhere to produce action in Wisconsin - Green Bay, Appleton, Wausau, Milwaukee, Madison, you name it. We’re also able to travel for video production in Chicago or anywhere else in the country to bring your story to life.
