"Our company used Polite Films for the commercial shoot and product review and everything was delivered to us as promised. They were very professional and brought ideas to the table that made for a successful shoot and commercial. I definitely recommend using Polite Films for your next event whether it be a commercial, wedding, quince ...or anything in between. They always have a clear direction on what to shoot and how it will come out. It was my first time shooting a commercial and product review; what seemed to us like bits and pieces blended together to make for a product we proudly show on our website and have received great feedback. Keep up the Great work!

"We are extremely happy with the videos Max created for us, as they hit our target objective to show simple pattern drawing and watercoloring techniques that not only look easy but entice the viewer to “want to do”. Max had to adjust the camera angles quite a bit during filming to capture the simple and easy look we were aiming for and the results are impressive. We are very happy with his work, especially his preparation, editing skills, timeliness and professionalism. My only wish is that he lived on the west coast, we’d hire him to create videos for us every year!"

"Max Rousseau directed the seven instructional videos I recently filmed for Sakura of America—all in one weekend! I was impressed with his vision, how well prepared he was for the shoot, his eye for detail and his overall craftsmanship. Most amazing of all was Max’s uncanny ability to edit— since he is not a calligrapher I was concerned that he wouldn’t know whether something I said was important to keep in the final film— but when I reviewed the rough cuts I was delighted to discover that Max had kept the truly essential comments and created videos that flowed seamlessly from start to finish. Best of all was that he welcomed my comments and made most of the revisions I requested. I am very pleased with the final product, and know that my client is too.
Max and his talented team were a pleasure to work with. I have already referred other clients to him, and I am very pleased to recommend Max as a director. "
"This was my first video experience, and while I felt I had stumbled through the session, Max’s editing genius made me look like a pro!"
