Testimonials

Brighton has been helping me to record a class program that’s going to be marketed through online platforms. He was incredibly helpful today in setting up a very nice looking shoot and also in walking me through this first time, initial experience of filming. I’m very excited to continue working with him on future endeavors.

I met Brighton West at a recent workshop of the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association. As a practicing hypnotherapist for the past 21 years, I realized the importance of videos for my website, YouTube and Social Media. I had interviewed 2 professionals to help me with this for a cost of over $1000. With Brighton’s excellent presentation and easy to follow guidelines, he gave me (and everyone present) the confidence and skills to make our own professional videos with our smartphones. His easy manner and excellent communication skills, not mentioning 21 plus years of experience and passion, made it fun and easy to learn. He had us work in pairs and make our own videos during the workshop. He inspired me to get a new updated smartphone, and microphone to start making my own videos. I am now practicing and putting together short scripts. I am excited to make the time to continue. Thank you Brighton for giving me the inspiration and confidence that I can do this! Nancy B. Wheeler

Video Testimonial - Patricia

I took Brighton’s YouTube 101 course on Udemy. This is a fantastic, easy to follow course for newbies to YouTube. Brighton is a pro videographer, so the course is stalked full of valuable tips and lessons for anyone looking to get started with making videos. Since video is where it’s at in 2016, every business looking to grow their business online would be well advised to at least learn these easy to follow basics. Thank you Brighton for some great tips in the course and for answering my personal video questions as well!

Portland Video Production Testimonial - Julia

Brighton – You are amazing! Yesterday you published the video shot the day before in my office as a promotional for my business. I really appreciate that you coached me about what makes a more professional looking film, and gave me tools to settle my nerves. Your description of my services was clear, concise and inviting. I can’t thank you enough! I look forward to working with you again.

Brighton took a blank canvas, and like a Master painter, turned it into a bright scene ready to hang on the wall. And took my breath away. He sees through the eyes of an elder. Now my book breathes.

Video Production Testimonial - Kerry

Brighton was incredible to work with. I work for a small Portland business and coordinated bringing Brighton in to help with our promotion and marketing. He was professional, timely, and knowledgeable. He was very prompt in getting the final video published and created the perfect video based on what our business needed. I highly recommend working with Authentic West Films!

Within just a couple of days of posting the videos Brighton helped me create and optimize for YouTube, I had a wonderful call from a prospective home buyer who saw one of my videos and said he totally connected! Yay! These videos are a great way to show people who I am, ensuring a good fit with new clients. Thank you, Brighton!

John WasiutynskiWe were in the middle of a very successful project involving many different pieces to improve the county’s two jails – but we needed a way to show these improvements to the board and public – without taking them into the jail. Brighton did an amazing job telling this complex story, working in a challenging location, and interfacing with our sheriff’s deputies that aren’t used to being on video. The end product does a great job showing off the successes of this program and helping people understand the significance of these efforts in a quick and engaging fashion. The advice and video remains a central part of our story telling efforts, and has provided a lot of value for our team.

Brighton is a talented and confident videographer who makes my good ideas great. I utilized his company to produced a number of training videos featuring professional actors showing volunteers how to perform their role. He helped to combine “real people” with screencasting as part of training. I plan to continue working with Brighton as I grow my training business.

Career Coach Testimonial

Authentic West Films was wonderful to work with. I was coached on how to present my best self on camera (something that makes me very nervous) in a way that calmed me and made me feel confident. I loved working Brighton because, not only is the kind of guy you just want to hang out with, he’s very talented at what he does! I can’t recommend his work enough.

Doug-GoodrumAs Executive Director for the Career Resources Network (the CRN_www.crnglobal.org), we had the opportunity to experience firsthand Brighton’s detailed Videography. He voluntarily filmed one of our many CRN Seminar events and the quality and cinematography was spot on! He captured rather impressive video of the speaker and the audience, while being unobtrusive and making the participants feel at ease at all times. We hope to engage his services in the future, reach out to me if I can be of any additional reference.
