“Working with Doug, and his team, made all of this much easier than it might otherwise have been. They were quick students. They were imaginative in their approach. They were able to tell the story in an easy to understand manner yet also in a way that enabled people to be reassured by the science and the engineering, the foundation of the project itself. They were organized during the meetings, they were creative in their approach and they were diligent in gaining the project knowledge they needed in order to complete the task to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to strengthen their communication/marketing strategy.”
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the two videos you produced for Cypress Development and Bayfield Ventures. Bighouse Productions makes the process painless. The completed videos look far more expensive than the actual cost and you are more than reasonable on any on last minute changes.”
“Doug Hadfield lead the team to develop an animation of our mining development project. It was a pleasure working with Doug through what at times was a challenging project – he is always professional, listens well, offers creative solutions and most importantly, understands the project from the client’s perspective which resulted in delivering a final product that we are all really proud of.”
“Doug is a very dependable person and always true to his word. Having worked with him over the past few years, I’ve always found great value in his audio and video expertise. He brought many great ideas to the table and continues to think outside of the box to ensure his customer is happy with the end product. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to strengthen their communication/marketing strategy.”
“We have used Doug and his services for a number of years now, and found him and his work very professional and of good quality. His workmanship is evolutionary in terms of technique and presentation style and it is packaging a tremendous amount of information into a limited amount of time. His creative, well organized and efficient video clips have been of great value for us, conveying the company’s story in an exciting and informative setting. As a person and professional, I find him detailed oriented and accommodating to our needs, and most importantly very accessible in order to finalize a project. We will continue to use his services going forward.”
“Your video has been used for many confidential meetings, and today we did an internal review of the website, which includes your awesome, awesome video. Everyone loved your work and inquired about your company. We loved the little details and attention you paid on the video. The trucks, the roads, the highlights etc. I would really like to thank you, again for all of your great work on this, and you have always been incredibly easy to work with. Looking forward to working with you again, Doug.”
“In the crowded space of corporate video production, it’s difficult to find standout work. Doug Hadfield’s Big Doughouse Productions is exactly that, however. From scoping the project to the breathtaking cinematography, Doug and his team over-delivered on their promises and created truly outstanding work. The animations are marvelous, the titles and placement of the various components are well thought-out resulting in a piece of corporate storytelling that our client and their stakeholders all love. If there was an academy award for corporate video production, Bighouse would win it—hands down.”
A Jack of all trades by nature, Doug has dipped his pen into almost every ink pot and the result is more than just messy hands. He’s a people pleaser and a go-getter, which (we hope) will keep you coming back for more. Clients say they love his attention to detail and unrelenting work ethic.
Andrea is the unassuming artistic genius. Every project she is a part of has her unmistakable flare for creativity. Floating portraits, perfect Twixtor slow motion and amazing After Effects compositions are just a few of her talents.
Illene has the rare talent of inherent style and taste. Most of us fake it or borrow it or learn it over a lifetime of schooling and work. She just has it. And that’s why her work is so damn impressive.
When you come to Bighouse Productions for animation, Andrea is the bello fellow who will lead the conversion of your technical assets into gorgeous 3D, convert your logos from flat lines to sumptuous depth and texture to your curves with picture perfect shadows. And he’ll do it all with the handsome, youthful swagger that echoes of the runways of Milano.
