I hired Tal and his Tritone Media team to direct, shoot, and edit a video celebrating the achievements of Berkeley MBA students. Tal provided guidance on still image selection, tight scripting, and interview structure. The team shot gorgeous b-roll, flawlessly lit interviews with high quality sound, and well-directed takes by our onscreen narrator. Tal then swiftly took a large amount of footage and turned it into an artistic piece that beautifully blended b-roll, stills, narration, interviews, and music, while never losing sight of our communication goals.
Inevitably, the finished video needed to be ever shorter--and he was an ideal partner in tightening while preserving the art and the message. The end product was delivered on a very tight timeline and has wowed everyone from our dean to the students we celebrate with this piece.
Tal began prepping for the short film he made from my novel, THE SAVAGE PROFESSOR, by reading the entire manuscript. This is just a hint of the casual professionalism that goes into all of his work. The video itself is beautifully acted and shot, with an amazing fidelity to the flavor of the book. On set the mood was friendly, fun, improvisational, yet the production was a sophisticated machine that unerringly hit all the marks. I'm going to write another novel just so I can use him again.
Tal is a wonderfully gifted editor, a thoughtful and careful project manager, and an easy communicator. He was patient with us and delivered a very quality product with a conscientious adherence to deadlines. I enjoyed working with him, and have recommended him to multiple colleagues ever since.
Working with Tal and his team is like eating your favorite food and opening up a stellar bottle of wine in some idyllic environment; it's pure pleasure. I've worked with a lot of video teams, and Tal's professionalism, gentle humor, and -- most importantly --final results soar above the others. Book him before he gets any more famous and his fees go way up.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tal Skloot at Tritone Media for the past five years and I can confidently say that he always delivers. He gracefully integrates into our team every time we need his video production services and seamlessly collaborates with us to produce strategic video presentations on-time and within budget. His can-do attitude, easy to-work-with demeanor, professionalism and extensive experience are a real asset.
Tal was very professional and easy to work with. His advice and directions were consistently helpful and productive. He understood what we wanted and delivered a video that not only matched but exceeded our expectations.
