TEAM HIGHLIGHT SPORTS VIDEOS TESTIMONIALS

"After having contracted two different, national companies to develop our season highlights video, we turned to Jimi White Video Productions in the fall of 2002. By comparison, Jimi's work has been exceptional. His sideline shots, end zone excerpts, and musical, audio, and video editing are stunning elements of his production. Our kids look forward to seeing him on our sidelines every year because they know that

1) He is a positive, friendly professional, and
2) They will become a part of special video memory that will last them a lifetime.

Hence, we are committed to using Jimi White to develop our annual highlight tape as long as he is able to carry a camera."

"The 2005 AABC Pee Wee Reese World Series DVD that you did for us last year was unbelievably cool and a keepsake forever for the players and families. Just wanted to let you know, again, how thrilled we are with this vintage and unique video you produced. It allows us to relive all the special moments of our games and travels- the production is simply incredible with awesome music, special effects, slow motion replays, etc. On behalf of our young athletes and their families we thank you for producing such a lasting and unforgettable memory. I would recommend Jimi White Productions to anyone who needs to make sure their once in a lifetime event is exceptionally captured and produced! We all love the World Series DVD's- they are exactly what we wanted and then some. Thanks so much again for the wonderful job you did capturing this special once in a lifetime event, and it, along with the video will be treasured forever."

Jimi,
"I am just taking the time to thank you again for the basketball / football game films you shot of my sons Blake and Robbie during their junior and senior years at Boylan High School. The game films are incredible and of network quality. We have the entire library in our entertainment center and are always popping in a tape when the kids and I get together. I wish I 'd had films like these when I played basketball at Boylan. This was a priceless investment and you have captured every moment of every game of their high school athletic careers that will be treasured for years to come."

MUSIC AND PHOTOS TO VIDEO TESTIMONIALS

Jimi,

Thank you doesn't describe the enormous gratitude that I have for the phenominal talent / work that you created in the DVD of my Dad! It was like you knew him! You accentuated the most powerful tributes of my Dad with the video clips you used. You not only did him proud, our whole family was proud. It was almost life-like, he was real again!

God Bless you Jimi, Your work touched a lot of lives.......

Cheryl Howell

Jimi, I am not sure if I can put into words the emotion we experienced watching the DVD you produced of my late father, from the song" kiss an angel good morning"you chose with the photos of my mom and dad together, to the actual live footage of him from the vhs tapes we provided, which was truly a shock! We were stunned when that segment came on and not knowing what to expect, we were in full blown tears! I just can't describe how wonderful of a job you did. It's something we are all going to cherish forever and I have to say you definitely brought out his personality in that live segment... he was always doing funny little quirky things that made us all laugh. You absolutely did him proud, Jimi. The combination of the photos and the live video was amazing!

I can't watch the video when I'm ready to go somewhere, I have to redo my makeup every time I see it

You are awesome!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
"Perfect! Some people "do videos, " what Jimi White did for my son's wedding was a professional video PRODUCTION. He took my photos and made them an entertaining work of art. I mean that. I gave him little with which to work and it was if he knew my son and his fiancé'. His added touches for the title page and nuances like the falling snow on their trip to Aspen with some college friends took what could have been a nice slide show to a great emotion-laden memory for a lifetime. What I wish Jimi could have seen were the smiling faces of our family and friends, who came from all over the states to the wedding! With the unique touches of well-placed music with well-timed fade-outs and the entire contents packaged with my son's picture with his fiancé' on the cover, I was more than pleased. I was thrilled."

"Jim...My family and I want you to know what an absolute wonderful job you did producing the memories tape you made for my wife's 50th birthday. As we sat with 50 or so family members watching the tape every person in the room was just blown away by the tape you made. You captured the essence of the message perfectly. From the production to the special side effects you added,we all found the tape nothing less then amazing in all aspects. Your talent in making this memory tape was eye-popping and jaw dropping. In all aspects of your work I can only describe your work as perfect, if there is such a thing. In the future I will strongly recommend your work to anyone that can your services. It was a pleasure to work with you because you delivered exactly what I wanted. Your talent was inspiring to say the least. Thanks again for the great job . Should I ever need your services again there is no doubt that you deliver what you promise. As a professional person myself it was truly a pleasure to work with another professional. Good luck in the future and I will send you whatever referrals I can...because you deserve it. thanks again..."

"My daughter was graduating from high school and I wanted to have a video made using photos of her growing up to play at her graduation party. I chose Jimi White through the yellow pages and contacted him. He did a great job! He put all the photos to music that I had chosen. He included video clips of her from our home movies, and added a few graphics that gave it a nice touch. The finished product was a big hit and really helped to make her party memorable. I would highly recommend Jimi. I didn't give him a whole lot of time to do the project, but he came through for me. I plan on using him again in the future."

WEDDING VIDEO PRODUCTIONS TESTIMONIALS

"Jimi White Photography was the best decision we made on our wedding day. During our ceremony, Jimi used the latest technology to cover every angle and sound of our celebration. The two-camera coverage allowed him to cover every step we took with beautiful precision and excellence. The greatest feature was the wireless microphone that I as the groom wore. Not only was our marriage preserved visually, but also with the microphone, we could hear all of the things that my wife and I shared throughout the ceremony. It was an amazing compliment to the video that we did not expect, but that we cherish the most. Jimi White Productions also did an amazing job on the reception video. Every time we attend a wedding now, we rush back home and put our video in the DVD player. Jimi White was also a joy to work with. He was patient, friendly and understood that the day was about us. After he placed the wireless microphone in my vest I never saw him again. He blended in with the special day and returned a product to us that blew us away. There are some things about our wedding that we would change if we had it to do over. One thing for sure that I would not change, is having Jimi White video our special day. It was the best decision that we have ever made. "
 
 Jay Sandine - Rockton, Illinois

"Jimi did a great job of not only keeping the lines of communication well open, but also by being prompt, courteous, and very flexible. He not only videographed the ceremony and the reception, but also filled cups of tea at my fountain,and helped troubleshoot with a difficult projector ( so that my montage could be shown), He also collected various keepsakes from the wedding, incorporated them into my video, mailed them to me, as well as e-mailed me two great photos that he took himself at the wedding!!!" Jimi put his heart and soul into our special day, and we are very fortunate that we found him. I would recommend him highly to anyone, and I wish him the best. I am very grateful to him for making my special day that much more enjoyable and memorable!!!"

COLLEGE SPORTS RECRUITMENT TESTIMONIALS

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 final product.

"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."

"Our daughter needed a college recruiting videos/ DVDs showing her pitching skills. My home videos were not of the quality that would get any college coaches attention. We turned to Jimi, who came highly recommended by everyone we talked to in the Northern Illinois/Rockford area. Jimi was wonderful to work with. From production to editing, Jimi White's work and professionalism exceeded our expectations. Jimi made our daughter feel comfortable throughout the filming process, which included filming her pitching from different angles and "wiring" her for sound with a wireless micophone. Jimi carefully edited the video, and even included her stats and other important information throughout the video in a very creative and effective way to make give college coaches all the information they need. We are certain that this video will help our daughter get noticed. 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 was 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 Ilinois University."

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!

Jimi,
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.

TRANFERS TO DVD TESTIMONIALS

"Thank you for the great work you did transfering my super 8 mm's to dvd's. The picture and audio quality is superb. The added background music gave it such a nice touch. My family and I will surely enjoy these memories for years to come The fact that everything was done locally versus being shipped out of town for the service was the nicest part, I knew that my films wouldn't be lost or damaged in shipping and it would all come back in one piece."

Sincerely,
Jerry Erxleben Office Outfitters, Inc.


Jimi,
When I called you about making a DVD from an old 1947 8mm film of my sister and brother-in-law's wedding, I honestly didn't know what to expect, mainly because I didn't know what condition the film was in and how the transfer process would go. You have no idea how pleased I am with the finished product. The transfer was of the highest quality and your choice of Perry Como for the background music couldn't have been better. I must admit, when I watched it I became very emotional because it brought back so many wonderful memories. I cannot thank you enough for a job well done and in such a timely manner. I would recommend your services to anyone looking to transfer old 8 mm films.

PLAYS TESTIMONIALS

We were very fortunate to find Jimi White Productions and hire him to videotape all of our musical plays in the Lower School this year. We don't have microphones set up in our Lower School gym and the lighting isn't the best but Jimi has managed to magnificently capture the students at these wonderful performances. He doesn't bother other parents while doing his job and has the DVDs available within days! The high quality of the DVDs are wonderful memories for our parents and students. Since we are such a small school, he can't be making much from the couple of dozen DVDs he sells each time, but he prides himself in his work and we are the ones who benefit! He has been dependable and great to work with! Thanks so much, Jimi, for making time for our student plays here at Keith School.
