Forest City Films did an exceptional job telling the story of my company and were a pleasure to work with. They were professional, organized and communicated very well. Brandon set aside time to connect with me in advance to understand who I was and what was important to me as a business owner. He and his team have a gift for storytelling and I will definitely connect with them again when I have a project in need of their talents.
