DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT...
While looking for someone to create a promotional video for my barbecue catering and vending business I was introduced to Rebecca Witheyby some very trusted and respected business partners. She came highly recommended so I contacted her to discuss ideas for my project. After my initial meeting with Rebecca I knew I had found the right person for the job. I found Rebecca to be very focused and extremely professional in both the pre and post creation of my video as she brought not only terrific ideas to the project but also listened well to what it was I wanted out of it. She immediately understood that I wanted the main concept of the video to portray the authenticity of my barbecue and she stayed true to my view. Understanding that creating barbecue is an after hours endeavor Rebecca accommodated my schedule by working long hours and well into the early morning to capture the spirit of making barbecue. Her never ending dedication and the many sacrifices she made to complete the project within my expected timeframe made this project a huge success! Rebecca never lost sight of the fact that I was the customer and invited me to sit side by side with her during the editing process while often offering several options with each decision that needed to be made. I found her experience and ideas during this phase of the project to be invaluable.I could not be happier with the final product or with the professionalism exhibited by Rebecca. The video she created for my business is a top quality product. Every aspect of the promotional video from the recorded video to the inserted interview she did with me to the excellent editing and theme music overlay came out nothing less than exceptional. Rebecca is a hard working very skilled professional who puts her all into the project at hand and delivers without compromise. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca to anyone wanting a top quality video product.

Rebecca is an extremely talented social networking guru. She has a knack for capturing the heart of a project and getting it out to multiple avenues of marketing. Whether it be social media, print, radio, or TV, Rebecca has a keen sense and many contacts that allow her to weave herself amongst the publicity needs for a given project.I was thrilled to have Rebecca serve on the Christmas Remember 2013 leadership team as my Publicity Coordinator. In that role she was responsible for all avenues of marketing for the event. She seems to excel at whatever she does, and we are fortunate to have had her on this project and involved without church in many other ways.I highly recommend her and her determined spirit for any organization seeking creative, comprehensive marketing skills and a team player.

The Mighty Oak - A Living Parable
Synopsis: The Mighty Oak is a story of love, loss and hope. The short film is a modern, animated parable that opens with a Mighty Oak, standing alone in a field of beautiful flowers. He has been alone for some time when a farmer comes and plants a Cherry Tree next to him. The Mighty Oak and the Cherry Tree fall in love and become entwined with one another. This love helps the Cherry Tree grow and mature and, in the end, withstand the storms that rages against her in life.
A NOTE FROM THE PRODUCER
This story idea was receive September 21, 2016, the day before my husband passed. It was written a little over 1 year ago for a Simon & Schuster competition where I made the top 50 most voted. Though I did not win the contest, I chose to narrate and create this as a Graphic Animation in After Effects to keep my skills up that I learned in college. I released on a private link via friends and family to honor my husband who passed the day after I received the story. I decided to submit it to the Film Festival circuit after my colleagues, professionals in the Radio, TV and Film Department at my work, highly suggested I do so.
Thank you to everyone for your support!
