A Word from our Clients

I’ve hired Paul to produce more than 100 promotional and informational videos for Bald Head Island over the years. His work is beautifully shot, carefully lit, and flawlessly produced. Along with a mastery of the technical aspects of production, Paul brings tremendous creativity and storytelling ability. Moreover, he possesses excellent interpersonal skills and is always a pleasure to collaborate with. – Christi Golder, BrandPlace Owner/Creative Director

I have worked with Paul Charles for over 20 years. He has been a great partner throughout my career. In my field of work, it is easy to recognize creative people who are open to hearing others and their ideas, while bringing their own expertise to the table. They listen hard, take great notes, and allow for an ease of collaboration. That is Paul. And, that is why no matter the size of the project, he is always my first call. – Jennifer Wilson-Mathis, Canines for Service

Paul captured the beauty and unique features of our waterfront and golf course luxury listings perfectly, and worked graciously around our homeowners’ schedules. – Anne Rose, Director of Marketing, KBT Realty Group – Keller Williams INNOVATE

Thank you, Paul, again for your help and ideas on this year’s set of video projects. You did a great job understanding our brand identity, while keeping us focused on the audience receiving the message. We also appreciate there was minimal disruption to our students during production. FSW is thrilled to have these quality productions for future families and our constituents. – Lona Popovic, Friends School of Wilmington
