    "Andrea has a heart for nonprofits and a knack for bringing their stories to life through video. She is a pleasure to work with and makes it a joy to watch inspiring stories of generosity and community impact."                                                   
                                        – Sally Kirby Hartman, Vice President of Communications

    "OMG, calling Andrea was the best thing I could have done to help market the Ophthalmic Medical Technology Program at Old Dominion University. Andrea was wonderful from the moment we met. She really listened to what was needed and asked what I wanted to gain from the video. She took tons of notes and asked more questions. She ran ideas by me and followed up on everything she was doing. Deadlines were met, and she was very concerned that the outcome was what we wanted. I am already recommending her to people. If you want a class act company to do a video for you, don't bother going anywhere else!"

You perfectly captured the essence of our team here at Phillips DMC and we know these videos will be well received with clients and customers alike. Your attention to detail, friendliness and high-quality end product made the whole experience wonderful."
                                                         – Anne Phillips, DMCP
  • DER Logo"Andrea managed to capture our ideas and convert her film footage and our scattered images into a great visual presentation that gives our clients a better idea of who we are. Her vision of our project and attention to detail was clear in the final product.

    I highly recommend the services of Bear in Mind Strategies to others, as I believe she is among the best in the business. "

  • PSF-logo“Outstanding work! Bear in Mind Strategies produced 3 videos for my company to help increase sales of our products, and since then, sales have doubled. I was truly impressed with the creativity and the end-product quality…and Andrea made it all so easy for us. I would highly recommend Bear in Mind to anyone looking for a great video at a price much lower than those large production houses. A real value.”

    "We realized that we needed to have video added to our website to truly explain the services we provide to our clients. Andrea made what seemed to be a daunting task, so very easy with no added stress to our already full work schedule. The product she provided us was far more than what we had expected. Andrea has a knack of getting to the core of what we do and translating that to video. We feel fortunate to be associated with Andrea and her talents have improved our website dramatically."
                                                         – Susan Pilato, Principal

  • “Bear in Mind Strategies provided innovative solutions for a challenging video project.  Andrea's many years of experience in television news added a depth and breadth to the final product that no one anticipated going into the project.  I wouldn't hesitate to entrust Bear in Mind Strategies with any project, large or small where a compelling story or message can be conveyed by video."
