I can't even imagine what our school would do without Sam! He has repeatedly helped us and does such an amazing job with "what he does"! I whispered a thank you to him at the board meeting, but wanted him to REALLY know how much I truly appreciate him and all of his hard work! THANKS a BUNCH!
Thanks guys. Love it. Already uploaded it to YouTube and posted it on our fundraising website
I hired Sam to produce two short videos intended to showcase my product line-up. Sam was a creative and professional from start to finish. Sam took the time to work with me on set, and his experience with video made for a smooth filming session.
Sam was able to edit through my poor takes and piece together videos that are second to none! I was thrilled with the outcome.
Sam's pricing was very fair, and I would challenge anyone to find a better value for your money.
Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, Creative
Sam contributed a lot to our small video production / post production team by sharing his strong technical knowledge of audio recording and other video production responsibilities. Sam was key to syncing cameras for a multi-camera shoot and helped greatly by improving a 30 second spot with some folly audio. Sam worked well with our team and was always task oriented during shoots.
Sam is an detail oriented visual artist. He was a joy to work with and teach. He was a quick learner when I taught him, and I am sure that at this point in his career he has developed an impressive skill set.
Sam is a detail oriented individual who strives for high results. His goal is always to create a product better or in line with what his clients ask of him.
He knows his equipment and software well and would be a great asset to any media/video department at a company or future clients.
Sam Angello is an individual who is 100% dedicated to theatre and the performing arts. This is clearly his career and I expect him to be fully devoted to it for his entire life. It is not often when a person comes along who immerses himself so eagerly and completely in their field of study.
At Garfield Heights High School, I was able to observe his growth as a technical artist. I have seen him figure out complex lighting systems and completely wire sound systems on his own. His passion for lighting has extended into his personal life, and he owns a surprising amount of his own equipment. This is relevant because it demonstrates how much time and experience he has in the technical world of theatrical lighting and sound.
Having work with Sam personally for years, I know I can say that he will endeavor to the best of his ability to make your program a success. He will put in the time and energy it takes to fix problems and make sure things are done right. He will always be thinking of ways to improve any given technical situation. He will strive to impress you.

He is a reliable person. He knows about Video, Photography Equipments very well. Top Qualities: Personable, Good Value, On Time
