TESTIMONIALS
  • I recently hired Liz to film a fundraising concert at Duquesne University School of Law.  Her services were top level work.  She and another high quality assistant handled all of the leg work of filming, sound recording, and editing on her own, and allowed everyone else involved to concentrate solely on their performances. This was the first year that our school has been able to have the event recorded, and the results were outstanding.  She is highly recommended and will give truly professional work.

  • Community television offices and studios can be a very challenging environment. Staffed mostly by volunteers with varying degrees of skill and afforded little or no budget flexibility it can be a daunting task to provid leadership and maintain focus. As chairman of the MCA-TV board I was able to observe first hand the creative, technical and, most importantly, leadership skills that Liz brought to our operation. She was a fine addition to the MCA-TV family and any organization would benefit greatly by acquiring her talents.

  • Elizabeth has served as our Video Production Assistant for the academic year 2010-2011 as part of the Life-Long Learning Scholarship program of Franklin University Switzerland. During the period of her scholarship, Elizabeth produced three major videos depicting students’ academic travels to Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Nice and Venice, thus supporting Marketing and Enrollment Management with its mission of promoting Franklin. While working as a part of a team of professionals, Elizabeth has demonstrated the ability to work well independently, pay close attention to detail and manage her time in order to successfully meet deadlines and accomplish assigned tasks. She is a motivated young student of numerous talents and considerable self-discipline. She is fun-loving, likable, enthusiastic, reliable and trustworthy.

  • Elizabeth Barentine has been a fantastic asset to my unusual non-profit theatre. She makes videos about the company and trailers for our works, which we use to market our shows and describe what would seem indescribable otherwise! She's smart, focused, thoughtful, creative... we'd never imagine the things she makes to express our shifting identity and deep values. She gets us! We love working with her. Highly recommend and would be happy to speak to anyone considering hiring her.
