Lauren, Jim, Ryan, and Woody were the best. I had the refreshing pleasure to work with them and their studio on a feature film we were working on. They were affordable, very responsive, and offers a wide-range of services. The Studio is ideal for sound and private. They are all very professional, lots of fun to work with and very knowledgeable about filming needs. I highly recommend them. Do not go anywhere without looking int Inspired Images Company first! You won’t regret it.

Jim and his team have put together a first rate facility – which is every bit as good, if not better, than similar facilities found in Hollywood.

Brian C.

I wanted to share with anyone who needs video production services that I had the BEST experience working with Inspired Images. Not only is their work very professional, but they are very nice and easy to work with. The project they did for me FAR exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with the final product. Ryan is extremely talented and took my vision and made it a reality. I was truly amazed and what a great job he did and could tell how much time and energy he put into it. He listened carefully to my needs and what I wanted and delivered the highest degree of quality that completely hit the mark. I recommend anyone to use this company! They are just fantastic!

Brian Hogan (Popvinyl)

Ben and I feel so fortunate to have found Inspired Images.  It was really divine intervention because I didn’t really know what I was looking for exactly when I was checking out production companies on the web.  And indeed you were just right.  You have all been very generous with your time, talent and efforts.  Thank you again for your hard work in getting the set ready, in answering our unending questions and in all you did on the actual shoot day.
