Candace Villarta, Communications Director
"Mike from House of 8 Media was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Mike received hundreds of different elements, put together 21 videos, scored music, mixed audio, added graphics & animations, and delivered a 1hr film on a tight turnaround. I was incredibly impressed with his support, professionalism and efficiency. "
Felix Lam, Process Engineering Manager
"If we didn’t have videos like this, we could have a lot of operator errors. The machine is automated but it’s operator-dependent. The process of inserting chemical tubes into matching ports is prone to mistakes. Different beads going into the wrong tube, one lot gone wrong could result in the loss of tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars if the error isn’t caught. A game of telephone from shift supervisor from engineer to operator can’t necessarily be accurate when we rely only on the work instruction SOP. "Via Facebook
Jesse Clark, Filmmaker
"Working with Mike on set was a joy. He understood how to get the best possible camera performance to enliven the story I was directing. A competent cinematographer, his knowledge of equipment and the kit that accompanied him were truly assets to my production. We had a tight shooting schedule and Mike made the difference between getting the shot, and ‘good enough.’ In addition to perfect focus pulls and speedy glass changes, he liaised with the rest of the crew with ease, keeping morale high and the script moving. Hire this man. "
Erin Conway, Content Creator
"On the first day of filming I think I told Mike I couldn’t do this without you like 12 times. He made me feel really confident. In post production, he worked tirelessly until everything was exactly the way I wanted it: every music cue, graphic, font – everything. He did not stop until I thought it was perfect. "
Harold Mooz, Speaker
"Michael Buffo captured, edited, and produced five hours of instructional video for my technical on-line e-course. He and his associates are professional, and deliver what they promise. They have quality equipment that they skillfully applied it to our job. I found them to be more knowledgeable than I expected and the job was completed without problems or conflict. You can’t expect better service than that. "
Emma Bell, Actress
"The space was quiet, the equipment stellar and Michael was both comforting as an old friend and helpful with a critical director’s eye. I taped 4 auditions with him, all of which he was incredibly accommodating with, and I got 2 callbacks! I’d love to say my reps first comment to me was how my acting prowess blew them away, but in reality it was more like, “what a great looking audition tape. Where is this studio? In LA?” Needless to say great work is being achieved at House of 8, and I can now go on more vacations :)” "
Kellie Dearie, Entrepreneur
"Michael is one of those trustworthy, high quality, high integrity people who is humble, yet ripe with information. He made my Indiegogo video, my product informational videos and my e-learning course. He always produces a high quality product and provides excellent coaching. Working with Michael has been a joy and I always feel a sense of trust and ease with him, as though I have a friend who will take care of me and my business for life. Hi highly recommend House of 8 Media to anyone who is lucky enough to use their services! "
Tom Brocato, Theater Producer
"The House of 8 Media team and Mike Buffo can’t be beat. I have worked with him for a year and he is professional, talented, experienced and a pleasure to work with. They provide constructive input when on a shoot – looking for the best possible ways to tell a story through video. Mike provides creative and unique ideas that enhance the video during his editing sessions – all leading up to achieving the best possible results. The final product he delivers to the television stations always receives an “A” from those stations and the media. I can’t wait to use them again and again. "
Deborah Allen, Theater Director
"House of Eight Media, with editor Jules Hart, created a highlight reel of our live event, and a DVD of the 110 minute live stage production, of FIRE IN THE HEART: artists using gospel, hip hop, spoken word, dance, film and poetry to explore how art can be used to heal trauma. The highlight reel is stunning – exactly what I wanted. I was very impressed with the patience Jules had with helping get MY vision on to the screen, and then adding her own creative juice and understanding of what we were doing to make it better than anything I could have conceived of alone. I love it. It made me cry. Great work, and I know it will be instrumental in our mission of touring the show. Thank you so very much for excellent work, and for being editors who listen and respond. "
