Numerous athletes have received scholarships with the help of Jimi White Video Productions. Here are just a few of our customer's testimonials.
I just wanted to give you an update on Rachel's recruiting process. She has received 8 total offers from Division 1 schools to play basketball, all of which were full rides. Recently she gave her verbal commitment to play ball for Bowling Green State University in Ohio. We received several compliments on the recruiting package and videos you put together for her. That package, especially the video, was instrumental in getting Rachel introduced to the coaching staffs prior to the summer evaluation period at the big AAU tournaments. With all the talent and so many kids at these tournaments for the coaches to evaluate, it was invaluable to have Rachel already on their radar. To have their interest prior to even stepping on the floor was definitely a big advantage. The schools were impressed by the quality of your work. Thank you again.
P.S. On a personal note, the videos you put together of Rachel playing have given our whole family great pleasure. High school goes by so fast, it's a lot of fun to go back and watch and relive those memories. Those are something Rachel can keep for a life time and show her children. Best of luck to you in the future.
A few weeks ago, one month prior to his senior year in high school, my son committed to a full-ride Division 1 scholarship to Indiana, a Big Ten football program, a fantastic academic school, a beautiful campus and an athletic environment with facilities ranked among the top in the country ... and he did this with a variety of other College offers to consider.
We were NOT on Indiana's radar before May; however, in researching rosters and such, it appeared that Indiana would be in the hunt for a Kicker in the 2009 Class. I decided to take the initiative and send a Highlight DVD. As it found its way into the right hands, there was a sudden flurry of attention. They loved the DVD ... invited us to their summer camp for a workout and the rest is ... well, a Division 1 scholarship and a college education with four years of Saturday excitement!
This wasn't the only time, through the course of recruiting this past few months, that we heard the comment "We love your DVD". All the 'experts' say, "Don't make a big deal of your highlight tape, just get some film together and send it out ... the coaches just want to see the action". Well, I DON'T BUY IT!!
The Highlight DVD you designed and created, from the personalized cover case, custom DVD label through the expert Menu Authoring feature was a distinguished and easy-to-use professional product that coaches were thrilled to evaluate. Coaches in the Big Ten, Big Twelve, PAC 10, SEC, etc. They prefer a product that they can easily capture player information and navigate through and around ... for themselves and to show other coaches. Your product is a genius piece of work!
Your prospective customers should know how considerate you are in working with them in the development of their Highlight DVD. I may have been more detail-oriented than most, but you were patient and focused on the things that I felt were important, yet firm on the aspects of your expertise. Working together, we combined efforts toward a winning product.
Jimi, I was a parent lost in the realm of this whole recruiting world and it all begins with having a product to send out to coaches. I fuddled around for weeks trying to do it myself. Then I found a different local resource that made a valiant attempt, but that Production Company fell short of what I wanted.
Finding you was a blessing! Parents of any prospective collegiate athlete needs to know who JIMI WHITE is and what he can do to optimize the exposure to their child's skills.
Thank you very much,
[Jimi] Please know that we are extremely grateful for the professional video you created for Hannah. It was extraordinary, beyond our expectations. The coach at Augustana described it as "one of the best" she's seen and called Hannah within days of receiving it to extend and invitation to join the team. You were such a joy to work with, Jimi. You listened to our suggestions and applied your professional background to produce an excellent production on time. THANK YOU.

This following is an email from the head volleyball coach of Augustana College in Augustana, Illinois to Pam about the recently produced recruiting video. The coach had never seen the athlete play volleyball:
How are you? I did receive the DVD , it was probably one of the best I have ever seen! Pretty cool graphics and music, I emailed and called Hannah letting her know I received the package last Saturday and I would like to welcome her to Augustana's womens volleyball team.

We wanted to e-mail you sooner but it has been a whirlwind the last couple of weeks. We sent out your DVDs right when we received them. Kiley had an unofficial visit with St. Francis College of New York (D-1 ) and Manhattan College also in New York (D-1 ) they were in August. Then she had an official with St. Francis this past week and made her verbal commitment to St. Francis. She really loves it and wanted the stress of all the process off so she could sit back and enjoy her senior year. She loves the school and especially loves the coaches. The post coach is Sue Wicks who played for the WNBA Liberty. The coach really loved your DVD. Thank you so much for your help producing her recruiting DVD, with the recruiting process and your interest and follow up of how she was doing. We are looking forward to spending her last year at home with us and preparing her for the next chapter in her life. Thanks again for the professional recruiting video of her that helped her land a D1 scholarship. I also love watching it. I was glad I was able to keep one to have.
Thank you again for all your patience with me and your professional work that you did for us!!

We just wanted to let you know we received Andrew's highlight DVD's and could not be more thrilled with your work. Coach Knox and Coach Martineck viewed them and shared our sentiments. It is nice to do business with people that follow through with what they say they are going to do every step of the way. Once again thank you and we will keep you updated on Andrew's progress.
Thank you again.

"In 2003, my son Joe was a junior at Boylan High School. He knew he wanted to play football at the next level. He received a lot of interest from Division I Colleges. We contacted Jimi White Productions to produce a College Recruiting Video because all of the corresponding colleges wanted to see his films. We sent his College Recruiting Video, produced by Jimi White Productions, to a select few colleges that Joe wanted to attend. Joe received his scholarship from Miami-Ohio and is a starting defensive lineman as of October 2006. Jimi White Productions did a fabulous job showcasing my son with the exceptional sideline coverage. Jimi White's quality resume video and professionalism helped us market Joe successfully."

Jimi, thank you for the Volleyball College Recruiting Video you produced for me this year. I sent the DVD to many different colleges, and visited two of them. Both commented on how they loved the DVD, and neither one had ever seen me play before it. I signed today on a scholarship to Lewis University, and I am very excited to go play there! They are a very good Division 2 school. Thank you very much again for the hard work you put in to make and edit my video! It really paid off!
"My daughter needed a college recruiting videos/DVD showing her pitching skills. My home videos and methods were not of the quality that would get any college coaches attention. We turned to Jimi White Productions, who was wonderful to work with. From on-site videotography, through the production to the editing and final delivery, Jimi White's work exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend his services. Thank you Jimi."

Thank you for the great college recruitment golf video you made for our son, Shaun. The video shots along with photos and background information were exactly what we were looking for to introduce him to perspective schools. Having a professional video to send to interested college coaches was invaluable. We truly believe that your swing video helped Shaun land a Division I golf scholarship to Western Illinois University.

You did an incredible job on Kevin's golf video. We have gotten complements from every Coach we sent them to. Your professionalism and attention to detail made this video stand out against the competition. The video contributed greatly to Kevin attaining his goal and dream of playing D 1 golf, he has been offered a scholarship to play for Eastern Illinois University. A video from Jimi White Productions is a must have for anyone pursuing a scholarship to participate in any college activity.

My son was very interested in continuing his basketball career after high
school. Unfortunately, the city of Rockford is not exactly a magnet for
college scouts. The video created by Jimi White Productions was very
instrumental in developing interest from two dozen College programs,
significant, ongoing pursuit from 4 Universities and a spot on the
Concoridia University - Wisconsin basketball team.
Thank you for your professional approach to this project and the quality
I spoke with a couple of other services and I either wasn't able to speak directly with the
videographer and didn't get a feel that my call was important or I didn't get a return call.
Definitely, after speaking with Jimi White, I was very impressed. My initial reason for
contacting Jimi was to videotape my son's soccer game. I initially decided to hire Jimi
because of his enthusiasm and I'm glad I did after I saw the final product. His website did
help out a little but I think it was more just from speaking directly with him because he
thoroughly answered my questions, gave me detail on what he could do for us and followed
through. I always spoke directly with him and we were able to work out the details quickly.
Jimi covered a couple of my son's games, took the highlights and combined them into a
presentation for college coaches. It also included his athletic resume. Most importantly he
showed up as agreed and was on time. I was very impressed on how smooth the scene
transitions were and the quality of the video. I highly recommend Jimi White Productions. The college recruiting DVD you produced for Nick helped him achieve his dream of playing soccer at the collegiate level.

Approximately one year ago I called you to help me create an explosive video for my son who wanted to pursue a football career in college. You kindly asked me to provide you with a couple of clips and information about my son and you would start immediately. I explained to you that I may not have enough film but would get you more footage over the course of the season.
If I am correct, within a week's timeframe, I came back to you in tears, explaining to you that my son is only 4 games into the season and he had broken his navicular bone in his ankle and is not only out for the season; he needed surgery and his opportunities to play again may not look so bright. We wanted to continue to move forward regardless and what could you do to help us. The way you embraced my son's project, I would have thought you have known him a lifetime, yet I found you on the internet.
I truly want to thank you for your professionalism, your work ethics, your tenacity, your creative style and your kindness in working with me to produce such an outstanding video. I whole heartedly believe that your creation was a large part with my son getting noticed and having the coaching staff at University of Arkansas, (Division 1, Razorbacks) interested in Raymond this year.
Many people can create a video. You provided me with a level of service that many people just can't adhere to. You listened to what was important to me, you gave me ideas and you set the right tone. You met every deadline, you tweaked the video each time I asked, you changed up the music and created effects that really made a difference in getting attention to the right coaches. You never said "I can't do this." You always said, "How about this…" "How does this look…" "What if we try it this way.."
You were worth every cent! I couldn't have had the outcome we had without you. I want you to know that my son has had the most amazing freshman year so far. He is redshirting for the Arkansas Razorbacks. They have made an investment in my son and you can have great pride knowing that you helped with this experience. I believe this year is the first time the Razorbacks have ever been invited to a BCS Bowl. It has been a great experience for my son and he is working hard to live up to the standards a Division 1 team has in store. He has a bright future ahead of him academically and athletically. They are providing everything for Raymond to be successful. I think it is important to thank the people along the way that helped him in his journey.
Please feel free to use Raymond as a reference.
All my best,
