Testimonials

“Kent and Granite River Studios have been such a valuable resource during the Endowment for Health's production of two videos to celebrate the foundation's ten-year anniversary. The Granite River proposal stood out among the other bidders right from the beginning. GRS promised more than just pretty images. They promised to tell our story and they exceeded all expectations ten times over. Kent never flinched once during the two-month production process that involved more than 20 interviews, tons of ancillary footage, remote locations scattered all over New Hampshire and the Eastern Seaboard, not to mention two separate shoots in the Governor's office. His focus and level of professionalism in the edit suite, paired with his artistic eye for lighting and camera angles, created something that truly surprised and delighted our team as well as our community partners. GRS even impressed one of our well-known national funders!

Having the GRS team present the day of our celebration event to help us stage it all, was another element that added great value for us. Granite River Studios rivals any big production house in Boston or New York, yet they are down-to-earth and affordable. What's not to love?”

Karen Ager - Director of Communications, Endowment for Health


"I have worked with Kent on three projects: an Emmy-nominated PSA, a two-time Telly Award-winning seven-minute video, and another seven-minute video that we just delivered to the client, who received it with great enthusiasm. Kent has a great gift for lighting subjects, capturing video, and magically editing it all together so that the end result speaks for itself. He even won his own Telly Award for cinematography. I recommend Kent for your next video project!"

Dana Biscotti Myskowski - Writer, Producer, & Director


“Kent does brilliantly creative videography; I have received many compliments on his videos for my websites at HealthcareCollaboration.com and GettingItDoneBook.com"

Ken Cohn - Practicing Surgeon, Hospital Administrator, Author


“Kent has always been willing to work with me on a deadline... and more than once has taken a "sow's ear" (the material I give him to work with) and crafted a "silk purse." Great voice-over talent, too!”

Christopher Cornog - Owner, Paxton Communications


“I have worked with Kent on various projects for some eight years now and my words can express little to how much appreciation and professionalism Kent exemplifies. He is on-time, attentive to detail and goes above and beyond. Simply put, I have spent days traveling and taping with Kent and in my profession catching and highlighting key moments is nearly impossible. I don't say a word... Kent does his magic and I do mine. The outcome is nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend you give Kent a try and you'll see why my only phone call for videography is always to Kent Rich. I know the outcome is going to be incredible."

“I have recently begun working with Kent and his company, Granite River Studios. As a business owner, you could not ask for a more honest person. As a shooter and editor, Kent is driven to achieve the highest possible creativity and quality, regardless of the budget. He also brings a wide array of skills to the table, from audio/soundtrack and motion graphics, to in-house film transfer capabilities. I will be utilizing Kent's talents on a wide array of upcoming television and new media projects.”

"I hired Kent to create a 10th anniversary video for the HNHfoundation.  He and I worked with a third collaborator, making Kent’s job even more challenging…having to listen to and get directions from two people.  At every step in the creative process, he took my suggestions seriously and made the edits I requested.  I especially appreciated having opportunities to review the video in his studio, providing instant feedback and watch him make the changes while I sat in the studio.  I could not have been happier with the results!"  

Sandi Van Scoyoc - President, HNHfoundation


"Granite River Studios turned our scattered array of images and graphics into a cohesive and entertaining multi-image presentation set to music and narration.  It was the absolute focal point of our event with the perfect mix of panache and polish.  Kent Rich’s work is as good as any production house I’ve used in Boston or New York.  Thanks for such a top shelf piece – done so affordably!"

Karen Ager - Director of Communications, Endowment for Health


"I was the Director and a producer on the feature film "THE KINGSMEN'S REDEEMER", and as such had the opportunity to work with Kent Rich of Granite River Studios. Kent's main responsibilities were Assistant Director of Photography and Camera A operator. Without question Kent was as hard working and dedicated a filmmaker as I have ever worked with.

Feature films are no small undertaking and Independent feature films are even harder. Kent always showed up on the set ready to tackle another day and willing to solve new problems or take on new challenges as they arose. Kent brought thoughtful and creative ideas to the set. He put his heart into getting the best possible shots. Kent was rock solid and dependable. 

I am very proud of the film our cast and crew put together and Kent Rich of Granite River Studios was an important part of that team and the success of our project."

Matt Marcil - Owner, Tweek Sound and Mastering


“I just finished a project with Kent and found his expertise to be invaluable. His knowledge of his medium and the industry far exceeded our expectations. His hospitality to those new to the process was very generous and was always accommodating to every request. Most of all he possesses a true passion and love for his craft that is as refreshing as it was rewarding.”

It has been a real pleasure getting to know and working along side Kent over the past year as we have shared our knowledge and experience on several collaborations, I have learn much from Kent and always look forward to the next opportunity. Kent brings to the table a superb knowledge of his trade. When that knowledge is combined with his natural story telling abilities and his creative touch and collaborative nature, I can’t think of many people I would more enjoy working with.”

“Kent is very conscientious and truly was able to deliver a great service to us in a very short time frame...kind of a 'quick save us' mission. The deadlines were met, the event went well, the DVD's were professional, and Kent's services were invaluable to us. He is ready, willing and able to assist as needed even if it is 'above and beyond' his normal services. He is upfront about the costs and there are no surprises. We would definitely hire him for future services - without hesitation.”

Deb Walsh - Director of Operations at Children's Alliance


“Kent is extremely talented. He really listens to what I am aiming for and has the creativity and skills to deliver.”

Brian Foreman - Pastor at Cornerstone Community Church


“Granite River Studios far exceeded our expectations. Kent listened patiently to our desires for the future and recognized multimedia needs for our organization that we had not. His willingness to subject himself and his equipment to the harshness of the jungles of Bolivia leads me to believe he’d go to the ends of the earth to meet your needs.”

Mike Timmer - Business Owner


“Kent is honest, hard-working, and smart. His integrity and work ethic ensure each project he works on gets the attention and effort it needs to bring it in on time, and done right.”

Tom Meegan - Creative Director, Woven Pixels Productions, LLC and Broadcast Media Consultant


“I had referred Kent to a catalog client of mine for whom I did product photos. They were looking for a videographer to create instructional videos showing techniques in which their products were in use. Kent was the only one I trusted enough to hand over to one of my clients. I was present during shooting and was overwhelmed with the professionalism of Kent and his team. I had gone into it expecting a sort of "one man show/wedding videographer" type of situation, but instead was totally impressed! Kent and his team had set up an entire TV production studio inside my client's place of business. The finished product was outstanding! I spoke with my client after she had received the finished product and she was thrilled-- it was exactly what she had been looking for. Thanks for making me look good Kent!”

Ian Raymond - Owner, Raymond Photographic Imaging


“Kent designed and developed a sales DVD for me from start-to-finish; the end product was consistently excellent in every way. He is "out of the box" creative, dives into challenges, and exceed expectations every time. Call me and we'll talk more about Kent's great work!”

Tess Crick - Relationship and Project Manager


“Kent Rich is the best videographer I've had the opportunity to work with. In this day marketing without video, be it DVD or Web Video you lose a significant audience. Kent has exceptionally produced marketing collateral that accurately portrays our company. He has consistently delivered within budget and got it right the first time. His talent produces results for Yankee Marketplace.”
