Testimonials - Stephen May
A couple of months ago, we were approached by Stephen May, a freelance
editor and videographer who was interested in the CalDigit HDElement.
Stephen has worked with numerous firms and his expertise has been used by
DEMO.com, Walt Disney Production Services, Ironman, and more.
Check out what Stephen had to say about the HDElement:
"I am on several forums; the Apple Final Cut Pro forum and another two at
Creative Cow (Creative Communities of the World), and I freelance for Walt
Disney Production Services, (Orlando) as a assistant shooter/editor, and for
Evergreen Creative, and for LMG Productions, Inc. I speak constantly with many
different creative content artists, for example Jayson Wise of Metrovision Post,
who actually recommended your company. I am passionate about my work
and I speak highly of any products that I believe in, and I am always impressed
when a company that is highly successful in a high-level niche market produces
a product that is designed to make their quality available to less affluent market,
just like you have done with the HDElement.
I am still blown away with my HDElement, and here at Keystone, we just
finished the Zumiez 100k conference. I used my HDElement on the VailResorts
Leadership Conference prior to the Zumiez 100k Conference, and it is so stable
and ripping fast! On the Zumiez 100k job, I met two freelancers that were
shooting the lifestyle shots on a 5D mark II and a 7D, and we ended up talking
about gear and I told them about my external miniSAS CalDigit RAID, and they
sounded extremely interested.
Zunmiez is very aggressive and we had a three screen setup (two outside 16:9
screens, and a center superwide screen with two Christie 18k projectors with a
blend) - I'm the projectionist and the camera switcher, so I thought I'd explain
it a bit. In a timelapse of the setup, and I was able to very quickly injest the
images - thousands of them, and create a ProRes 422 hi-res Quicktime using my
I really appreciate your company and I just wanted to share some of the work
your product helps make possible! Happy New Year, and I will continue to tell
everyone about my CalDigit RAID!"
