We got our video a few days ago. We about died laughing, watching it. Our daughter wants to show it to everyone she sees.
I didn't know you were going to send so many copies, thank you!
The video was great. Everything went by so fast, it feels like it was all just a story someone told me. Or a dream we just happen to have shared with a lot of other people. So it's very nice to have the video so we can look back and say, "wow, all of that really happened."
"My experiences with John Waters and Midwest EXP Video Productions have been overwhelmingly positive. After working with him on many different levels in the production of our band's live show and DVD releases, I would not hesitate to utilize his talents on my next video project.
John and his crew are very diligent and hard-working, often putting in extra effort to insure that I was happy with the finished product. They are not only very professional but also personal and human, which is important to me - the events that I produce involve more than just business, and the elements of human interaction and compatability are an important factor in the creative yet stressful environment of our live shows.
John is also great to work with during post-production - very accomodating and creative while still being respecful of my wants and needs. I like to hire people that can help fulfill my artistic vision, and that's why John Waters is my choice for all my videography needs."

I wanted to take a moment to express to you once again my sincere appreciation for all the hard work and time that you have devoted to the band and this project. I was throughly blown away with what you've done. What I saw on Saturday, comprises in my mind at least, the most definitive and complete recorded history of the band to date. You've been able to capture and portray the spirit of STARZ at its very essence. Anyone who has never seen us before could watch what you've put together and walk away with a pretty good understanding of what we're all about musically, artistically and personality-wise.
To me, that's the hardest thing to do; transfer a feeling from live onto film and make the viewer feel like they were actually there and with this, you've done a superior job. It's as true a representation of us live as I could imagine. Having a record of all of us playing every song we ever did, in the order in which we did them, with the same players as possible, just blows my mind.
If North Korea were to nuke my house tonight (which they're certainly trying to do at this very moment, I'm sure), it would be OK with me in that there is at least a record out there of everything that I would want people to know about what STARZ is all about and I would die a happy man. Thank you.
It sounds like you had some fun with it as well and that is very important. If you don't have fun, then your audience won't have any fun either, and what's the point of that anyway?
Can't wait to see the final cut. If it's anything like the rough one we saw, it'll be great! I have really only one small suggestion/request: I think the whole piece would be vastly improved if you only showed pictures of me. It should be, "All Dube, all the time!" Waddya tink?
