"We have engaged Karen and the team at Mikaren Media on several occasions to create key communication videos for Xerox Global Services. In all cases, Karen and the team have done an outstanding job of filming and editing these videos that exceed our requirements, on-time, and within budget. Working with Mikaren Media has also been an enjoyable experience making the end result even more rewarding."
-Gary Vastola, VP, Learning & Development, Xerox Global Services
"We had no idea what to expect when we began working with Mikaren Media. The end result was something beyond our wildest dreams. Mike, Karen, and their wonderful crew, took what seemed like endless video footage and turned the often unglamorous work of our organization into a beautiful and quality piece whereby breast cancer survivors could tell their own compelling stories. Part of our mission is to empower others. The DVD produced by Mikaren Media spoke to that empowerment in a way photographic stills and print media never could. Thank you for the inspirational piece you produced. We move forward... inspired!"
-Holly Anderson, Executive Director Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester

-Ed Gallagher, Delivery Manager, Performance Development Group
"I have had the privilege of working with Mike Braden for over 20 years. Mike and his production team are my “go to” partner for the majority of the corporate and long form video projects I produce. We have traveled extensively and have created some outstanding, award-winning work together. I would say that the reason I keep coming back to Mike is that, not only does he have an impressive inventory of camera gear and support equipment, and a great eye for shot composition and lighting, but he is by far the most easy going and collaborative DP I work with. My colleagues and clients like him and I have never wrapped a project where I haven’t been 100% completely satisfied with the production. Mike’s the real deal.”" Service Category: Director of photography Year first hired: 1989 (hired more than once) Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity.

Her work in both capacities has been excellent. In website and materials design, her work is consistently professional in both appearance and content. As a volunteer she is committed and consistent, with great follow through and willingness to jump in and get things done."

The video produced by Mikaren Media helped us bring the story of our Ronald McDonald House families to our donors and supporters, many of whom have not had the opportunity to visit the Ronald McDonald House personally. Mike and crew were very easy to work with, and we were very pleased with the final outcome.
