 Rene Rivas filmed and produced our 2017 Blues and Brews video.   Rene did a great job of capturing moments throughout the festival that all added up to one great video.   After the first draft, we were able to give him our vision and the end result was exactly what we wanted.   Rene not only looks at a festival through a photographer’s eye, he understands the promotional and marketing value needed by the producers.  I would highly recommend Rene Rivas for all commercial video needs.

 We received our graduation photos extremely fast and all I have to say is…AMAZING! I want to thank you for capturing our special achievement of graduating from college. I do have to say that I was very nervous for this photoshoot as I am camera shy and don’t enjoy taking pictures. The moment we met up you made us feel comfortable behind the lens ultimately resulting in 97 beautiful pictures. Friends and family have complimented the pictures and really enjoyed your style of editing. Once again, thank you for your amazing work and personality.     -Emma and Andrew

 "Rene Rivas Productions creates beautiful work. The promotional video Rivas produced for our dental practice, Alpine Smiles PC, was of the highest quality. Not only was the finished product exceptional, Rivas made the production process flow seamlessly, even in the midst of our busy dental office. Nerves tend to run high when anyone is on camera, however, Rivas’ patience and calming demeanor made the recording process much simpler. He was very flexible with our revision requests and his editing turnover time was extremely prompt, without sacrificing the quality of the product. I would recommend Rene Rivas Productions to anyone! - Joedi Pasut DDS Alpine Smiles"

  "Rene Rivas Productions offered the Oak Creek Watershed Council a full fledged professional experience in the creation of our first environmentally based commercial. Rene and his team were fun and easy to work with, while at the same time focused with a hard edge of creativity. Together our vision came to life in an exceptional commercial that brings humor to a much deeper environmental issue. We hope to work with them in the future!"

  When Le Trebuchet decided to enter NPR's Tiny Desk Contest there were only a few weeks left before the deadline to submit a video. After talking it over we decided to ask Rene to film and produce it. Not only did he have the technical know-how to achieve a great video, he also was incredibly efficient to work with. It was our first experience making a video and his easy going persona made shooting void of stress and very fun. When we were unsure about how to execute our ideas he gave us clear vision and direction. In post production he was able to get the video together beautifully and quicker than we could have imagined possible. We have ideas for our next video but the one thing we will be doing for sure is working with Rene. Thanks Rene!   -Le Trebuchet

  To Rene Rivas Productions, from some very happy clients.   I was referred to Rene by an acquaintance when I was looking for someone to video a flash mob proposal that I had been planning for several weeks.  Rene was quick to return texts and calls, and was very friendly and informative in letting me know what services he could offer.  He not only worked within my budget but was quick to get the finished video back to us.  This event was such a blur, so to have this video to remember and treasure forever is awesome.  Thank you so much Rene for all your help and professionalism. We ABSOLUTELY LOVE the video of the flash mob proposal.

  I won’t let my 15+ year friendship weigh in when I say that Rene and his work is first class. He is professional, creative and simply amazing at what he does. The coverage from my wedding felt as though he had a a full team of videographers. Rene literally captured every special moment. Originally we weren’t sure that a videographer would fit into our wedding budget, but after speaking with Rene about how this would be a piece that we would treasure for lifetimes to come, we couldn’t imagine not having him. The day was so fleeting, that it was difficult to remember all of the little details that made L'Auberge come to life, until my husband and I watched the video. It was like reliving the day all over again. I can honestly say that I get the same feeling I had when I walked down the aisle every time I watch it.        Rene is truly dedicated to his work and the end product. It poured rain on my wedding day and Rene reassured me that despite the risk of his equipment being ruined from the elements, that we would walk away with a video that we would cherish. He was absolutely right. I would recommend any bride, business owner, or creative looking for a video project to Rene. My husband and I owe him much more than the small token it cost to produce this piece, we owe him a lifetime of goosebumps.

  "We hired Rene Rivas Productions to film our promotion video for our personal chef/ catering business, The Friendly Pear Culinary Solutions. We knew instantly that Rene was the man for the job because he was just as pumped for the shoot as we were. The day of filming, he showed up early and was ready to set up with all the necessary equipment. Throughout the whole shoot, he kept the creativity and the energy flowing. He took our vision for our promo video and with his experience in videography, the use of different cameras (such as a go-pro), the angles of shots, lighting of the room/food , giving great direction to us and also our "cast" family and friends, Rene made our dream a reality.
