HIDDEN WOODS MEDIA
"When you run a production company, you get a lot of emails from freelancers looking for work. Sydney Stevens is proof that sometimes it’s worth following up. She’s an incredibly talented editor who knows how to bring energy and excitement to a video and frame it in a story that makes sense to the viewer. Not only has she helped us take on more work, she’s one of the first freelancers we’ve encountered who actually brings value to the business that we didn’t have before. We’ll be calling her for our next project.”
"Sydney was the production assistant on episode of Going RV for GAC that we produced. She was extremely responsible, organized, and proactive. She kept track of all the production cash she was given, as well as receipts. She advised us on scenic locations in the area for shooting. She ran errands, assisted with talent wrangling, handled craft services, and took set photos. She was a pleasure to work with and followed directions well. We put a note in our company's system to hire her again if we are ever in the area. I would definitely recommend her to any company. "
Mount Mansfield Media
" As the owner and operator of Mt. Mansfield Media I have employed tens of producers/editors/shooters over the past 10 years. I’m not easy to work for. I ask for a selfless - team first approach. I ask people to invest themselves fully and care about every detail. Our expectations of Sydney require that she work independently. She is given assignments with very little information and expected to show initiative, resourcefulness, shooting and interview skills. Then she is expected to find and expand the story with curiosity, ambition and stick-to-itiveness and then come back and edit with strong sensibilities, creativity, arc and emotion. Sydney thrived in every way. She was reliable, hard working, team oriented, creative, honest, caring and respectful to all she came across in the process. "
