Beth Read

"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."Beth Read Rockford, ILHigh School Graduation Photos to Video Production

"Jimi, I wanted to thank you for the great job you did producing the training video for Frito-Lay. Your insight on shooting the video was crucial to getting the end product we were looking for. I understand that filming 20 different people in a meeting setting can be difficult, but you did a great job directing the group."  The video you produced has been sent to 40 manufacturing facilities to use for training. I really appreciate the time you spent with the group, the detail that went to editing, and quality of the finished product."  Thank you Bryant Bertrand Region Quality and Food Safety Manager Frito-Lay North America

Dan Appino

"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 that1) He is a positive, friendly professional, and2) 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."Dan AppinoVarsity Football CoachBoylan Catholic HS

"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

"This was our first year using Jimi White Productions to tape our annual dance recital. Everyone was very impressed with the live audio feed, picture quality, and overall presentation of the video. We will definitely be using them again for this year's recital and for many more to come."Eryn SpeddingDance Director J&J Dance, Tumbling, Trampoline & Swim Pecatonica, IL

"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

"Jimi White produced an Employee Orientation Video for Beef-A-Roo several years ago. It has been a valuable tool in assuring us that each new employee receives all essential "New Hire Information" .Our managers love it, as it has saved them hours of training time. We recommend Jimi White, as he can deliver an affordable, quality video in a timely manner."  Jean Vitale Beef-A Roo Rockford, IL

Lanita Evans

"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!!!"  Lanita Evans Homewood, IL

Mrs. Marti Schofield

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.Mrs. Marti SchofieldKeith Country Day SchoolRockford, IL

Richard D. Burkett

"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."  Richard D. Burkett Proud father and father-in-law! Rockford, Illinois

"For more than a decade Jimi White Productions have done an amazing production for the Boylan Boy's Basketball Team. The season synopsis on video has been a keepsake that is highly treasured by coaches, players, player's families, and the entire Boylan community. Jimi's videos have been first class. Now, with the advent of the DVD, Jimi White Productionshave reached a new level in excellence!!!" Steve Goers / Varsity Basketball Coach / Boylan Catholic High School Rockford, Illinois

Jimi, things are going pretty well. I've gotten some letters and coaches interested by sending out my college recruiting video. They all love my recruiting highlight reel so I can't thank you enough. I'm going to be very busy this summer with these college camp combines that the coaches are inviting me to. I also got premiered on a football recruiting website for Maryland and on rivals ( If you go to recent stories you'll see a story about Andrew Brickey. I will keep you updated on everything. Again, thank you very much.Andrew BrickeyBerlin, Maryland

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 Jimi 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 th

Brandon Janczak

Dear Jimi,The highlight video you produced for my 2008-2009 Varsity/ Midget Major Rockford Icemen season was beyond amazing! I would recommend Jimi White Productions to anyone who wants to get a quality highlight film professionally produced. Jimi was easy and a lot of fun to work with. Not only that but the way he made the music flow with my hits, goals, and assists was simply outstanding. I also liked how during a big hit or goal he would either use slow motion, replay it numerous times, or even go as far as in adding special effects. For example, when I hit a player against the boards he made it look like I shattered the glass on the T.V. screen which was extremely surprising in a great way. Once again thanks a lot Jimi! I can't even begin to describe how great your work was and how much I enjoyed my highlight video that you produced for me after my Dad filmed most of season. Thanks again!!!Sincerely,Brandon Janczak from the Varsity Rockford Icemen 13x Illinois State Champions

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  Tolon, IL

Cindy Mershon

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 itYou are awesome!Thank you, Thank you, Thank youCindy MershonMadison, WI

Jimi and his staff were extremely easy to work with, from the initial meeting and pre-production discussions, all the way through to post production. I was amazed at the effiency. Through out the entire process, Jimi and his crew were nothing but professional.

"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."  Dan Lanning Manager, The Cyclones/ AAB

David J. Rossi

I had 10 VHS tapes shot 25 years ago. There were many memories of my family  growing up along with grandparents who have long since passed away. I could see that the VHS tapes themselves would not last much longer and the picture quality was getting worse with age. It was important to my wife and I to preserve the historical footage of our children and our grandparentsI took a chance and called Jimi White. He was very personable and understood the importance of preserving these family memories. He accommodated my timelines and arranged to meet with me. He assured me that my VHS tapes would be handled with care and he could transfer the film to DVDs at a cost that was reasonable. I am very pleased with the high quality of his work and his fast response to completion of the task. I can without reservation, recommend Mr. Jimi White to anyone who has VHS tape challenges of any kind.David J. RossiRockford, IL

Hi Jimi,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 scho

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!Faith WatsonCollege Recruiting Girls Volleyball VideoOregon, IL

I have never seen a better college recruiting videos than what Jimi produces; combining visual quality, content andother innovative options.He puts together an excellent tool for the best presentation of a high school student athlete.First impressions are paramount to college consideration.Jimi's productions will give the best first impression possible,in my opinion."Frank GoodwinGoodwin-Future Collegiate Athletes

Hugh Arnoldi

Jimi,When I called you about making a DVD from an VHS tape of 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 VHS tapes was in and how the transfer process would go. You have no idea how pleased I am with the finished product. The VHS 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 VHS tapes.Hugh ArnoldiRockford, IL

Jerry Erxleben

"Thank you for the great work you did transfering my old VHS tapes 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 VHS tapes wouldn't be lost or damaged in shipping and it would all come back in one piece."Sincerely,Jerry ErxlebenRockford, IL.

Jim Simonovich

Hi Jimi,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,

Joe Coniglio

My son Joe was a junior at Boylan High School and 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. Jimi White Productions did a fabulous job showcasing my son with the exceptional sideline coverage. Jimi White's quality college recruiting video and professionalism helped us market Joe successfully, helped us received a scholarship, and helped Joe play football at the Division 1 level.D.

January 7, 2011Jimi White ProductionsDear Jimi,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,

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.Larry LighthallRockford, ILCollege Recruiting Boys Basketball Video

Jimi,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".
