CLIENT NAME: Jean K******* DATE: 07/24/2014 COMMENTS: Creative and collaborative with excellent execution. The project quality was the highest I've seen. The team was easy to work with. My experience felt collaborative. Great job!

CLIENT NAME: Ana M************* DATE: 07/21/2014 COMMENTS: I have really enjoyed and loved working with you as well as the quality of your work. I didn't give you a 5 because there were some hiccups that I didn't expect ... so, I could well be the one who is wrong. I will work with you again again again again that's how much I've loved it. Thank you!
CLIENT NAME: Norm A**** DATE: 07/17/2014 COMMENTS: What a great team! Your professionalism and customer service are outstanding and very much appreciated. Hope to work with you on a different project in the future again!
CLIENT NAME: Jeremy V**** DATE: 07/17/2014 COMMENTS: We went back and forth a lot in this process. Our team caught a lot of little animation problems/glitches (such as non-matching social media icons, floating specs of color, Cal was cross eyed for half the video at one point, etc.) However, your response time was always great and was very prompt. You never argued with us and you always accepted our notes/changes. In the end, we were extremely satisfied with the final video (and the first video too!). We just recommend that these little animation problems be caught the first time around, so we don't need to find them and we don't need to go through several versions of the video. Thanks!
CLIENT NAME: Craig L***** DATE: 07/14/2014 COMMENTS: The team did a great job, and after awhile were able to fully understand our offering/the complexities of our industry. We work in a very complicated space, so the fact that they were able to get this done, and very very well done at that, is a huge achievement. Thanks very much!

CLIENT NAME: Carla F***** DATE: 07/10/2014 COMMENTS: Pros - love our video! It's creative, fun, tells our story, great voiceovers, love the animation, and people see it and like it! Cons- had to do a "do-over" which was costly because the story pitch didn't translate well, was dull and not so creative. That cost us extra money. Communication of expectations and deliverables on edits was difficult. Didn't feel like our creative team was that open to feedback and somewhat sensitive. We worked it out in the end, but the process was not smooth and we felt like we weren't listened to or dismissed sometimes. We definitely felt like you guys thought we were a pain-in-the @#$, and we felt badly about that. There was not great chemistry/communication. Not sure I can pinpoint why. I've had a long marketing career and managed many creative products with agencies in my career. Never a video, but radio commercials, print, digital, collateral, websites, etc. This was definitely the most difficult process for getting on the same page I've ever had. You do tremendous work. We love some of the other videos you've created, that's why we came to you. Your strengths may also be your vulnerability. You have young, enthusiastic creative thinkers there. Great. But the "youth vibe" may also prevent them from picking up the nuances of communication style and substance that are important for real collaboration. Text, email and Google chat don't replace the need for solid voice to voice communication, listening, and diplomatic dialog. I hope this will be received as constructive and not complaining. We appreciate the accommodations we received, the reduction in the additional fees we incurred. and the enthusiasm the staff displayed about our work and mission.
CLIENT NAME: Kerri C*** DATE: 07/10/2014 COMMENTS: Working with the Epipheo team was a pleasure from start to finish.
CLIENT NAME: Caitlyn B******* DATE: 07/09/2014 COMMENTS: As always, a very enjoyable experience! I really enjoy working with the team here. They are open and honest about what they believe will or won't work and responsive to any changes or alterations as we move through the process.
CLIENT NAME: Dave N****** DATE: 07/07/2014 COMMENTS: A little too aggressive seeking feedback. Felt attacking at times.
CLIENT NAME: Amanda M******* DATE: 07/07/2014 COMMENTS:
CLIENT NAME: Natalie G*** DATE: 07/07/2014 COMMENTS: I love the professional yet fun approach. It was a real pleasure working with the whole team.
CLIENT NAME: Hans J******* DATE: 07/07/2014 COMMENTS: We like the result. The beginnings of our collaboration in this project were a bit slow before we were on the same wave-length.
CLIENT NAME: Eleanor ****** DATE: 07/02/2014 COMMENTS: While the experience definitely wasn't 'bleh' there were definitely things that we could have done to make the process run smoother when working with Epipheo. I appreciated the simple template for the briefing. In my prior experience, it is easy to fall into the trap of writing boring briefs which focus heavily on detail and less so on why the product/ service is exciting. The Epipheo briefing template did a lot to avoid that. That said, our product is fairly difficult to explain and is quite complex. We feel as though lots of the details got lost in the briefing process and therefore the first few versions of the script showed not a huge level of understanding of the product. Obviously we understand that our own communication to Epipheo could also have been clearer. It might have been good to get a more formalized response to brief before kicking off with script work. As the process continued we had relatively low levels of contact with the Epipheo team. Each time we were sent a new revision/ version of the script or video we just looked at it and emailed feedback. It might have been better had we had a call with the Epipheo team every time they sent something through so that we could hear their logic and they could explain certain changes. We did do this when we sent feedback which seemed to work well. When working with a team so far away, I would always prefer to spend more time talking on the phone rather than email. The final product was great. We are very happy with it and with the team's ability to make small changes and tweaks right to the last minute. Epipheo were great with using our brand assets and using them in innovative and exciting ways.
CLIENT NAME: Matt S***** DATE: 07/01/2014 COMMENTS: Overall, we were very happy with the process and the final product. We did feel like at times the team didn't implement some of the things we had suggested in the previous round, and in the end we had to end up paying extra to get it exactly right. We understand that is part of the process, but we felt like if we were more clear, or the team had asked a few more questions and got it right, we may not have had some of the disconnects that we had. But the bottom line is that we are very happy with the end product.

CLIENT NAME: Yvonne H******** DATE: 06/27/2014 COMMENTS: Love working with Epipheo - hence we keep comin' back...
CLIENT NAME: Rahul B***** DATE: 06/27/2014 COMMENTS: The good: The Project Manager has been great - very interactive, attentive, and supportive. The team pushes back when they have an opinion. We had to really get the script perfect and while the process took longer than i would have liked, the script was great. The animation was good - there were some important details I did not understand - and that impacted the video but we were too far along for me to go back and make edits. The bad: The sales cycle was rather unpleasant - really made me feel like i wanted to do business more with Epipheo than they did. If it wasn't for the fact that someone on my team had strong experience, we would have used another company. What to know: These guys are good at telling a story. The biggest challenge in getting there is making sure they understand your story. That takes time and focus and makes the difference in the amount of value you get out of the spend. These guys are not cheap so invest the time.
CLIENT NAME: Katie T******* DATE: 06/27/2014 COMMENTS: Thanks for being so great to work with! We will do it again soon!
CLIENT NAME: Cheri D******* DATE: 06/24/2014 COMMENTS: Just occasionally a few things we had to ask for twice. Otherwise, lovely!!
CLIENT NAME: Patricia M***** DATE: 06/24/2014 COMMENTS: We love working with you all!
CLIENT NAME: Benjamin R***** DATE: 06/24/2014 COMMENTS: Overall, wonderful experience and final product. Pleasure to deal with professional, accessible, friendly people. Only comment is that it would have been helpful to have been able to review the storyboard prior to the first "draft" of the video. Hoping to work with Epipheo again in the future.
CLIENT NAME: Lily L************ DATE: 06/23/2014 COMMENTS: Great work and great and easy to work with you all - thanks!
CLIENT NAME: Dena S****** DATE: 06/20/2014 COMMENTS: Loved the enthusiasm and professionalism. The end product was everything I expected. Looking forward to working with Epipheo again !
CLIENT NAME: Michaela B**** DATE: 06/20/2014 COMMENTS: It was great working with Epipheo! They really took the time to understand what we were wanting and looking for to ensure we were getting a top quality video that we are proud of.
CLIENT NAME: Paul Z***** DATE: 06/20/2014 COMMENTS: After a rough phase at the story, the team rallied to deliver a great product and a great experience. You hit every expectation and then some.
CLIENT NAME: Stuart M***** DATE: 06/20/2014 COMMENTS: It felt like the project manager's job was to try and close down each stage as fast as possible to move on. It would probably work better if the focus was on doing it right ( less work if right first time ) - but I think that would need more interaction with the customer up front
CLIENT NAME: MaryAnn F*** DATE: 06/19/2014 COMMENTS: Great experience working with the Epipheo team!

CLIENT NAME: Jun S******** DATE: 06/16/2014 COMMENTS: It started out a little bit shaky, obviously we were both getting to know what we needed from each other - design, ideas, creative, artwork, etc. but I believe that by the time the home stretch was in sight, we were both extremely aligned and the final two or three cuts were incredible. Certainly we were bowled away with the second last cut, and after our CEO's suggestions, and the quick work to include that in the final cut, the final version was also extremely fun to watch and share out. So well done Epipheo. I am happy to recommend your services to others, and I'm sure this won't be the last time we work together.

CLIENT NAME: Katherine K******** DATE: 06/09/2014 COMMENTS: Pitch was great. Feel like there was a bit of a disconnect in the middle of the project, but we were able to get aligned and bring it home together in the end! Frequent contact is key and phone conversations are always helpful to ensure everyone's on the same page and nothing is getting lost in translation.
CLIENT NAME: Patricia M***** DATE: 06/09/2014 COMMENTS: Great working with you all once again :)
CLIENT NAME: Joshua J****** DATE: 06/06/2014 COMMENTS: The team went above and beyond. They listened, tried to understand the goals of the project, and delivered fantastically!!

CLIENT NAME: Denis B********* DATE: 06/06/2014 COMMENTS: Great thinkers, open to input, always looking for a better way
CLIENT NAME: Jonathan F**** DATE: 06/06/2014 COMMENTS: I think you guys are the gold standard in using technology to make working together from afar extremely productive. The use of videos starring the creatives working on the project was very effective and you just use the "Hub" really well to track/manage the project while it's in flight. I also feel like you have really talented creatives there...you were able to take a business that you have never even seen before and make a compelling video that tells our story better than we could do ourselves. Hope we continue to work together in the future.

CLIENT NAME: Julie C**** DATE: 05/27/2014 COMMENTS: We had a big disconnect in the beginning. We spent a good amount of time meeting with you and was happy with the outline of the video. But when we saw the first rev of the storyboard, we were very surprised that it was so far off message...almost saying focusing on sales was bad. In fact, it had kind of a preachy tone to it. Once we got things squared away, it went very smoothly. There were a couple of edits that we had to list twice, but other than that it went well. The quality of the video is fantastic.
CLIENT NAME: Chiara C******** DATE: 05/23/2014 COMMENTS: As mentioned in the final call, great experience. Everything was managed well and delivered on time. I really liked the creativity in the production stage. Very professional. It was great working with you.
CLIENT NAME: Eric B**** DATE: 05/21/2014 COMMENTS: the work was good, but it took a _very_ long time. deadlines were frequently missed, with no feedback about the fact that it would take longer or anything until we reached out. was a pretty underwhelming experience in that regard.
CLIENT NAME: Ben B***** DATE: 05/20/2014 COMMENTS:
CLIENT NAME: Justin I**** DATE: 05/16/2014 COMMENTS: Epipheo did a fantastic job adapting when we needed to change directions with the story. Jonathan and Chris were great at helping us navigate the process, incorporating our feedback and even pushing back when they felt it would derail or distract from the message. The Epipheo team worked really hard to meet our deadline and the result is an Epipheo that engaged our company and audience, and got them excited about what we have to say. Thanks, Epipheo!

CLIENT NAME: Monica C***** DATE: 05/14/2014 COMMENTS: An absolute pleasure to work with! The best part - you actually listen to the client. Great experience all around.
CLIENT NAME: Scott H*********** DATE: 05/14/2014 COMMENTS: We're not an easy group to work with frequent requests for changes, adding new copy, changing our mind and asking for the moon, but the Epipheo team remained professional throughout the whole process and create a really great video that we'll be able to use in a variety of manners.
CLIENT NAME: Whitney A**** DATE: 05/12/2014 COMMENTS: The team at Epipheo was able to learn the complexities of our business and help us simplify our message and convey our value prop in a quick, concise, engaged manner. We look forward to future projects with them!
CLIENT NAME: Joerg K******** DATE: 05/06/2014 COMMENTS: It was great!
CLIENT NAME: Kristin Y******* DATE: 05/05/2014 COMMENTS: Working with the Epipheo team was great. Our producer was very responsive and took all of our feedback points into consideration. We were very happy with how the video turned out.
CLIENT NAME: Pete J***** DATE: 05/02/2014 COMMENTS: In differentiation, not uniformity, lies the path to success. Epipheo are the masters in differentiating your product and ideas. They work tirelessly to cut your solution from the herd of mediocrity by focusing on the difference. They distill it, polish it and then they explain it in 60 seconds or less. Epipheo are an easy recommendation for me - fabulous people and solutions expertise - highly, highly recommended.

CLIENT NAME: Dila S***** DATE: 04/23/2014 COMMENTS: I always look forward to all of our creative and entertaining meetings together! Never a dull moment.
CLIENT NAME: Jeanette M******* DATE: 04/23/2014 COMMENTS: Great interactions... never made me feel bad about making a million edits late in the game :) Really impressed with the team's ability to understand a technically challenging concept and offer fantastic solutions. Love the story, the animations, everything. Good value for money... You guys rock!
CLIENT NAME: Missy S****** DATE: 04/23/2014 COMMENTS: I cannot begin to explain what a pleasure it was working with the entire Epipheo staff. I immediately knew I made the right decision when we began working with the team on the script. The team was able to figure out our story better than we ever could. All the while Alex kept the project moving with incredible patience and professionalism. When the video was presented to the entire company at our offsite - there were tons of ohhhh and ahhhhs. I can't thank Alex and the team enough for everything - we are all so pleased on how it turned out!!
CLIENT NAME: Ike N**** DATE: 04/18/2014 COMMENTS: I certainly like the way it turned out, so congrats on that. And yes, I would certainly use your services again, and recommend you to others. I don't know if there is a more efficient way to do this. My experience working with you in the past was that there were fewer iterations I had to deal with. I don't know what to conclude about this, as there were only two data points.
CLIENT NAME: Michele F******* DATE: 04/17/2014 COMMENTS: This project was plagued with delays on our side, your team, stayed very professional and constructive throughout. Thanks.
CLIENT NAME: Tony R***** DATE: 04/16/2014 COMMENTS: I thought it turned out great. It was catchy, informative, entertaining, and just funny enough to like it without it being a joke.
CLIENT NAME: Nick T******* DATE: 04/16/2014 COMMENTS: Loved working with you all and was clear at each stage what was happening. The only thing I'd say is perhaps challenge us more at the beginning and make it clearer about the structure you use to create the story. This I think would have helped us come to a signed off storyboard quicker. Anyway really happy with the results thanks everyone.
CLIENT NAME: Rachel S**** DATE: 04/16/2014 COMMENTS: Awesome work, would love to work with this team again.
CLIENT NAME: Adam A******* DATE: 04/15/2014 COMMENTS:
CLIENT NAME: Carol S**** DATE: 04/14/2014 COMMENTS: I'm pleased with the overall results. I thought the team always did a good job thinking of creative ideas when we were stuck on how to illustrate certain points. I felt like things took a lot longer than I expected though. We had some delays on our end, but I felt like waiting on some of the deliverables from Epipheo took a long time.
CLIENT NAME: Steven G******** DATE: 04/11/2014 COMMENTS: The people I know who understand marketing, advertising, video and animation gave the work a B. The people who don't know any better gave the work an A. As far as the experience, I would consider using Epipheo again, but I'm not running back.
CLIENT NAME: Catherine G******** DATE: 04/09/2014 COMMENTS: Great job!
CLIENT NAME: John W***** DATE: 04/08/2014 COMMENTS: I think the project took longer than it needed to. I also found a bit of a disconnect between the expectation set on your main website and the initial expectations of your team on the project scope. I think the initial scoping out phase of your approach is more geared for "easy to understand" commodity projects and less for the complex sale. This surprised me as the complex sales is the main premise set on your Website that attracted us to Epipheo in the first place. However, the final result was everything I was hoping for and your team was very professional and as determined as we were to do a great job. My only recommendation is to beef up the discovery process for complex concept sales scenarios.
CLIENT NAME: Brad H**** DATE: 04/07/2014 COMMENTS: An energetic and likable team, with videos that manage to be light without becoming silly or trivial. It did take much longer than expected to get the ideas we wanted conveyed understood and incorporated - this included swapping out several personnel on the Epipheo side. Moreover, the final graphics were not quite in line with what had originally been agreed to in storyboard (look/feel of people and edges), and some of the depictions of the problem area remain vague/muddied. Internal consensus is that the resulting video is a B/B+: good, not great. In fairness, it was a complex and somewhat abstract topic. If we had it to do over again, we would've been much more prescriptive with both the script and the video design.
CLIENT NAME: Mike K******* DATE: 04/07/2014 COMMENTS: Quick turnaround.

CLIENT NAME: Stuart R***** DATE: 04/01/2014 COMMENTS: Fantastic team that produce fantastic outcomes. Could not be more happy!
CLIENT NAME: George F***** DATE: 03/28/2014 COMMENTS: Overall, I am happy with the experience. I chose Epipheo over its competitors as I thought it told the story better than the others. I think our decision-centric story comes through nicely in our animation and look forward to working together again. There were some rough edges, mostly in team grasping the challenges in merchandising and a merchant's hectic life, but I expected that. I've had two distinctly different sets of reactions from team members who have seen the video for the first time. Many love it. The other camp doesn't get it or doesn't see why we spent so much money on it. Part of the reality that you can't please everyone.
CLIENT NAME: Stuart B****** DATE: 03/27/2014 COMMENTS: Was a bit of a struggle getting the concept across... But DAMN when you get it BOY do you get it. Awesome work guys we are super happy! Best
CLIENT NAME: Kent P***** DATE: 03/25/2014 COMMENTS: My client loved the finished product. The creative team was responsive and, uh, creative. The only fly in the ointment was, on a couple of occasions, our feedback on a delivered work product was not incorporated in the next revision. When called out, the team was quick to fix it. All in, I would work with Epipheo again without reservation.
CLIENT NAME: Prescott H***** DATE: 03/24/2014 COMMENTS: The team did great, they were very accommodating of a fast deadline that the client then tightened even further, and the final animation was high quality. Overall, great work!
CLIENT NAME: Kameron M******** DATE: 03/24/2014 COMMENTS: We had a great experience, received an excellent product, and really appreciated the patience and thoughtfulness that went into the development of our video. Thanks everyone!
CLIENT NAME: Brent S******** DATE: 03/21/2014 COMMENTS: We loved working with your team. Your people are great, the entire process was very well documented and smooth, and the end result tells our story in a creative and compelling way. As far as I'm concerned, all of your competitors should just shut themselves down because I don't see any way they could compete with you.
CLIENT NAME: Todd H**** DATE: 03/21/2014 COMMENTS: Keep up the good work!
CLIENT NAME: Eric G********* DATE: 03/21/2014 COMMENTS: I was only involved in portions of the activities. My ratings are qualified based on that amount. Thank you.
CLIENT NAME: Rey D****** DATE: 03/19/2014 COMMENTS: A few delays but the quality of the work more than made up for it. Thank you!
CLIENT NAME: Kate L******** DATE: 03/18/2014 COMMENTS: The final product of the video was fantastic and everything that we hoped for. I appreciated at the beginning that the process was outlined and agreed upon by both parties before we began. However, I do not believe that Epipheo met any of the deadlines that were set. We turned around feedback within a day, but each time you were late on your side in getting the next round to us. We also had an agreed upon date for final delivery, and the date was not met - actually if I had not insisted that it had to be finished, I was told it would have been an additional 2 weeks of production time. Your team had to work through the weekend to get us our final product in time for our event. I appreciated the time put in over the weekend, but it was a crazy weekend for me also, and this just added to the pressure and time commitment.
CLIENT NAME: Paul D**** DATE: 03/17/2014 COMMENTS: Generally liked this project - couple of small items later though where i'd already provided feedback which had not been incorporated.
CLIENT NAME: Bera A**** DATE: 03/17/2014 COMMENTS: Your team has been great. We felt we were listened to and understood. I would recommend your services to others without hesitation. Thank you Epipheo!
CLIENT NAME: Jon N****** DATE: 03/14/2014 COMMENTS: Thanks for all of the hard work, gang! We're really pleased with our short!
CLIENT NAME: Ben B***** DATE: 03/13/2014 COMMENTS: I would given you a five for both, but I had mentioned that the speed was too fast only to get push back that it wasn't from you. Then I received the same feedback from my team, which ultimately delayed the project by another two weeks to get the timing, speed and flow correct. Other than that, you guys 'rocked'!

Don't think too much about what to tell them about your product. Just tell them a simple story, and they will transform it into a magical journey... And always on schedule, with a clear understanding of how your production is being handled, step by step, all the way until it's delivered. A 5 Stars Team.
CLIENT NAME: Rick M******** DATE: 03/10/2014 COMMENTS: The video produced is great. Internal customer very pleased. On schedule/on budget, goodness, make me happy. We were restrictive/conservative in our initial review, which most likely impacted artistic creativity. All worked out fine.

CLIENT NAME: Melodie C*** DATE: 03/04/2014 COMMENTS: Thank you for taking the time to understand our product and delivering a phenomenal final product. Specifically, the communications between our companies were great. Again, I would repeat my comment from the previous project, having the written script to review, edit and sign off on was very helpful to allow us to have the text in hand. The review and ability to be very "nit-picky" of the characters to be animated was also very helpful to allow us to get it "just right"... and thank you for being so patient with all of our suggested edits.
CLIENT NAME: Daren K*** DATE: 03/04/2014 COMMENTS: I love the organization and how you captured the essence of our story so quickly. You gained our trust that you'd help us take care of our client right away and that's important in a fast-paced industry such as ours.

The mascot is beyond what we expected to take away from this experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We look forward to more opportunities to work with you guys in the future.
CLIENT NAME: Joanna H*** DATE: 02/26/2014 COMMENTS: It was an absolute pleasure working with your team. You guys are creative, strategic, fun!
CLIENT NAME: Anthony A******** DATE: 02/26/2014 COMMENTS: I just got to an internet connection after crossing the pacific from Mexico to Tahiti. I saw the final on the video and think it turned out awesome. I wanted to thank you and the team for making these for us, you made it so easy and I really appreciate you helping me with the oversights on my part. I look forward to working together again in the future.
CLIENT NAME: Adam A******* DATE: 02/25/2014 COMMENTS: This has been my favorite video to date! The only reason I rated my experience as mediocre is because there were several small details missed that caused us to miss our deadline.
CLIENT NAME: Cyndy S****** DATE: 02/24/2014 COMMENTS: Great job. You made the process very easy and kept things moving. Your team is exceptional in that they grasped what we considered a complex topic and made it very simple - something we have been unable to do. All aspects of the experience were exceptional and I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a unique way of marketing their company, product, services to the marketplace.
CLIENT NAME: Hans J******* DATE: 02/24/2014 COMMENTS: The process was a bit slow. I suppose you re-allocated resources when we were slow to respond to your questions...

CLIENT NAME: Jess W********** DATE: 02/19/2014 COMMENTS: I think your team did an amazing job! I'm really glad we found you. thanks!!!
CLIENT NAME: Ross B***** DATE: 02/19/2014 COMMENTS: I thought you guys did a great job of moving the process through but I felt our company was "that" client, the one that never goes away. It made tensions tough and in the end we could tell that ya'll were ready to get this all done. The work is amazing though!
CLIENT NAME: Sander L**** DATE: 02/19/2014 COMMENTS: I feel like we got about 65-75% of the Epipheo genius. Which is to say, still quite a good result. But mysterious project lapses, no established schedules or milestones (ever... after repeatedly asking for them... what?) poor communication and missed (very important) deadlines tainted the overall experience. Unfortunately, it literally took money out of my pocket and yours-- straight up. Our final product is still pretty good, feedback has been strong, and I still want to work with and recommend Epipheo. But it fell a bit short unfortunately.
CLIENT NAME: Amanda R****** DATE: 02/18/2014 COMMENTS: Had an amazing time wiring with the entire Epipheo team! Hopefully we'll get a chance to do another video soon. Thank you for all of your hard work and stellar attention to detail.

CLIENT NAME: Melodie C*** DATE: 02/17/2014 COMMENTS: From the feedback we have gotten from within the company, both regionally and globally, the Epipheo is a PHENOMENAL success. The final product was even better than we could have hoped for - so a huge thank you to the Epipheo team for going back to the drawing board for us when things weren't quite working right. Some procedural changes that we made part way through the process that I think would help with future projects with us and other is to provide a written copy of the script for us to review, edit and sign off on. This would help us to ensure the specific details are accurate and would make edits easier. Also, the process of reviewing final character animations was very helpful. From the reactions I got from the Global team and the team in general, I suspect Epipheo will be working on at least another translation of the Epipheo into Spanish (after we've done the French version!) and some other jobs as well. There is talk about doing another Epipheo for the New Zealand team which can only result in multiple hilarious directions. Looking forward to the next video. M.
CLIENT NAME: France L******* DATE: 02/17/2014 COMMENTS: This was my first experience with Epipheo and I was very impressed. Most impressive was the team's ability to quickly and so thoroughly understand the subject. I have never worked with an agency that was able to do this so fast and so well. Your team completely understood the subject and our goals. I think this ability to understand and distill is key to Epipheo's success. By thoroughly understanding, Epipheo was able to tell our story in a very creative and fun way rather than focus or get hung up on the technical aspects. This has truly been a great experience and I would recommend Epipheo in the future and hope to have the opportunity to work with you again.

They nailed the message, and the final result of the video does an amazing job of telling our story. I cannot wait to launch this internally and externally.
CLIENT NAME: Brad Y**** DATE: 02/14/2014 COMMENTS: You guys have this process down to a science. I don't believe I have ever worked with a marketing organization that "got it" so quickly. You were able to take something that we struggled with in terms of communicating effectively with our clients and prospects. We definitely will use you again - presuming you want to work with us again (<;
CLIENT NAME: Daniel B******** DATE: 02/14/2014 COMMENTS: Our time working with Epipheo was vernally excellent. Both the initial project coordinator, and his replacement, took good care of us and communicated well. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the story lead and felt taken care of by the production team. We found the visual communication tools, such as the script sharing, the animatics, and the animation revisions clear and excellent. The end of the project has been marked with a need to revisit elements of the video and script, but that is not a result of Epipheo's work or process. The only element we felt tension regarding was choosing a voice over artist - prior to the request to rewrite the script that came in October/November. Though we felt very strongly about our pick, the Epipheo team insisted repeatedly on an alternative and we felt like they were not properly hearing us. Otherwise our experience has been excellent. Thank you.
CLIENT NAME: Tommaso M**** DATE: 02/14/2014 COMMENTS: This is our first endeavor with something like this so we really have nothing to compare it to. We are looking forward to the effect that the video has on drumming up new business for us and, since we have not released it yet publicly, its hard to say how happy we are with the investment.

CLIENT NAME: Mark E***** DATE: 02/12/2014 COMMENTS: We were admittedly a tough customer; at times struggling to identify our own message, only to have it change again once your team developed a concept for us. Your team was always supportive and extremely accommodating as we struggled to clarify our message. We were concerned at one point when our producer left the team, however, you continued to move (us) and our project forward along a singular path to success without skipping a best. All in all, it was a wonderful experience working with Epipheo!
CLIENT NAME: Miura, S****** DATE: 02/11/2014 COMMENTS: Love, love LOVE Epipheo! Can't wait to see the next round of creative on our other work in progress with you folks. :-)

CLIENT NAME: Sam E****** DATE: 02/06/2014 COMMENTS: The end result was great, but the process to get there was frustrating and took about twice as long as expected. Some of that was that we were being pushed in a direction and ultimately decided against that direction, but from there it was impossible to get a schedule and then to keep to it. We can take some blame for it, but once we made a decision it seemed to take a lot longer than expected to get to the next step. Ultimately the result is a video we love, but it was more painful getting there than I would've liked.

CLIENT NAME: Caitlin S**** DATE: 02/04/2014 COMMENTS: A little more clarity with schedule would have been awesome, wasn't always clear when stuff would be delivered for review until the last minute. also would likely have saved time to have an additional storyboard roughed vs going straight to full animation before integrated storyline had been approved. BUT that said, overall great work VERY pleasant, professional, smart etc. team. I'd recommend you guys to colleagues.
CLIENT NAME: John H*** DATE: 02/03/2014 COMMENTS: I think the process was extremely well planned out so that I could hit a target date. The team was wonderful to work with and ongoing communication was fabulous. Highly recommend all aspects of my experience.
CLIENT NAME: Miura, S****** DATE: 02/01/2014 COMMENTS: Always LOVE the end results. Had to go an extra round on creative as key edits were missed. However, last minute re-edits to several existing videos took no time at all and were delivered flawlessly! Great job as always Epipheo!!
CLIENT NAME: Mary M***** DATE: 01/30/2014 COMMENTS: We always love working with Epipheo, but ran into some delays in production, so we were a bit unhappy with that part. We were hoping to finalize a video project by the end of 2013, but it didn't get completed until late January 2014. Despite the delays, we are very happy with the final product and look forward to sharing it internally and externally.
CLIENT NAME: Karin Z***** DATE: 01/30/2014 COMMENTS: Loved working with the Epipheo team! Communication was great - timely and really seeking to understand. The team took the time to become familiar with our mission and the message we wanted to convey. Great experience!

CLIENT NAME: Elizabeth R**** DATE: 01/28/2014 COMMENTS: Loved working with you on all 3 videos. A couple of things crept up more than once, like gloves on the wrong hand. Overall, changes were incorporated quickly and feedback was timely.
CLIENT NAME: Elizabeth R**** DATE: 01/28/2014 COMMENTS: You guys really delivered on this one. It hit all of the high points - the research and science background, the game element, the fun, and downside of training. When we showed it to our customer service team, the "shared experience" of going through boring training was right there. You connected to our audience.
CLIENT NAME: Alex W*** DATE: 01/28/2014 COMMENTS: Had a great experience building the video with J. & team. They pretty much nailed what we envisioned in our head on the first try.
CLIENT NAME: Anthony A******** DATE: 01/27/2014 COMMENTS: The team was quick to grasp the underlying idea and get it into a visual format. Deadlines were met efficiently and little work was required from our side.
CLIENT NAME: Chelsea S**** DATE: 01/27/2014 COMMENTS: It was great working together on this project. The team was incredibly fast and responsive, allowing us to wrap the project BEFORE it's deadline!
CLIENT NAME: Ken M***** DATE: 01/22/2014 COMMENTS: Appreciated the flexibility of your team. The finished video was exactly what we asked for.
CLIENT NAME: Fred B** DATE: 01/22/2014 COMMENTS: Communication throughout was unsatisfactory. I'm still unconvinced the creative team or the producer understand what we sell, despite innumerable conference calls and email explanations. Draft products delivered with amateur errors (eg typos, disregarded specific directions about text, graphics noticeably crook-eyed) that result in my time being wasted with additional revision steps. Deadlines were unrealistic and consistently missed. For a nearly 6 month turnaround, I'm convinced we could have gotten the same or better result in a matter of weeks for a fraction of the cost. To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. In fact, the only reason we accepted your work and paid the balance on our account was our misplaced reliance on your company to deliver a quality video that is the cornerstone of our product launch.
CLIENT NAME: Aaron S******** DATE: 01/21/2014 COMMENTS: Professional and responsive to our needs throughout.

CLIENT NAME: Ken W***** DATE: 01/13/2014 COMMENTS: The team did a fantastic job. They answered my questions before I even asked them, and were a true joy to work with. Thank you Epipheo for your help on this!
CLIENT NAME: Christopher C****** DATE: 01/11/2014 COMMENTS: The initial kick off for the project would have gone a lot smoother if your team leaders had done a better job getting to know us, our vision, and what we do. That said, once we got on the right track with regular communication the process was amazing...and the end result is truly a work of art. We couldn't be happier with our Epipheo and can't wait to reveal our gem to the world!
CLIENT NAME: Peter M***** DATE: 01/06/2014 COMMENTS: I really enjoyed working with Epipheo's staff. They have been very flexible and professional with our project. Even when there were bumps in the road, they worked with us to smooth them out. I will think of Epipheo first when deciding on who to trust with creating a video for me in the future.

CLIENT NAME: Kimberly D***** DATE: 12/19/2013 COMMENTS: We thoroughly enjoyed working with the team who was creative, helpful and flexible with our changes and requests. I liked how the team was also passionate about our work. We worked on a bit of the script ourselves, which took away from the experience (just a tad) and the timeline wasn't what we expected, but outside of that, we had a great experience. I would recommend your work to any organization or company who could invest in you all helping them to tell their story. Thanks Epipheo!

We are elated about the final product and can't wait to share it internally and externally.
CLIENT NAME: Hardik P***** DATE: 12/06/2013 COMMENTS: Appreciate that the team tried to fix unresolved issues at the last moment; the attention to detail in terms of quality was missing; graphics team could have been lot better - lot of items had to be repeatedly communicated. We lost interest and lost track of as to how many times we provided same feedback. Sorry guys - but being candid as requested.

CLIENT NAME: Kiren S**** DATE: 11/18/2013 COMMENTS: This was a slightly unusual project (updating a previously produced video.) The end product is great. But there wasn't great attention to detail along the way (required lots of edits / feedback from me, the client, that could have been caught prior.)
CLIENT NAME: Ben B***** DATE: 11/18/2013 COMMENTS: Epipheo did an incredible job given the time constraints that we had and looking forward to working with them in the future with more time on my hands.
CLIENT NAME: Ali-Jae A********* DATE: 11/18/2013 COMMENTS: Josh was definitely attentive and represented the company well, but our video came back multiple times as a "finished product" with spelling errors that ended up costing us more money from our marketing plan than we budgeted. While we're happy with what we ended up with, based on the process and turn around time, it's not likely we would pursue another video of this type.
CLIENT NAME: Tamir S**** DATE: 11/18/2013 COMMENTS: The process was excellent and the final video is amazing. The only issue we had were expectations in terms of delivery date. We could (and should) have been a little more clearer in the beginning (and throughout the process) in terms of when we needed the video. Everything worked out @ the end and you guys really delivered -- just a little stressful towards the end of the project. Overall, you guys were awesome to work with and looking forward to our next project.
CLIENT NAME: Adrien R**** DATE: 11/15/2013 COMMENTS: Great care and patience for details and last minute changes. Clear and straight story, with funny characters. Was maybe missing a bit of wow effect, things we didn't like were changed exactly the way we suggested but without adding any creative twist to it (for example changing lazy to exhausted, and things like that). Great experience overall, very good listening, and back and forth results! Thanks guys for all the hard work, we know we definitely were not always easy!

CLIENT NAME: Scott D**** DATE: 11/14/2013 COMMENTS: I thought you guys did a great job overall. The only thing I'd say is that you should have listened a little better when we started telling you it was too long...before we laid music and everything to it. The solution worked in the end, but I do think it could have been more concise.
CLIENT NAME: Trevor C******* DATE: 11/13/2013 COMMENTS: Overall, it was a great project and working with Epipheo was a fun experience. Lots of energy from a positive team and I think that helped the project along.
CLIENT NAME: John G***** DATE: 11/10/2013 COMMENTS: Great team of people to work with and overall we felt the work was quite good. I think the visual work was the best portion of the project. We were a bit "underwhelmed" by the story planning and script development work. We provided a lot of content to use as input (including a presentation by the senior pastor to the team) and it felt like we had to do a lot more of the guiding on these elements than we thought we should/would. The initial script was significantly off the mark (writer admitted varying from the story plan) and we used a lot of project time to get this worked out. Overall, I think we landed in a good spot, but just didn't feel that we got the level of script that we saw in the animation. We were working on a compressed schedule so reviews were pretty rushed and stressful (I'm sure on both sides), and towards the end we realized that this caused us to have to depend on the storyboard more than we would have liked before seeing the visual design & animation. We felt this caused us to be a bit in the dark through most of the project about what the look & feel would be. Overall, the development process and the account management was very good, however, and for the most part made up for any of these issues. I don't want this to be perceived as "failing" by any means, just that we had very high expectations that weren't quite met. At the end of the day, we have a very useful and compelling tool to tell our vision story. Thanks to all of you!

CLIENT NAME: Bethany D*** DATE: 11/07/2013 COMMENTS: The artwork is fantastic. I enjoy working with your extremely talented team. I have found the response times and progression of work to be slower than expected. There have been a number of team members who come in and out of meetings, and it's never clear who the lead contact person is and who is responsible for which elements. Early on, we had a key person who was at each meeting but lately we haven't seen him in months??
CLIENT NAME: Bill T**** DATE: 11/06/2013 COMMENTS: Relationally it was a very good experience. The feedback on the project throughout the process felt uninspiring and therefore concerning. I had real reservations that the end product would be inspiring as a result. The final project ended up being much better than I had anticipated. Thanks for your investment of heart and art!
CLIENT NAME: Darnell H******* DATE: 11/06/2013 COMMENTS: We love the finished product. It seemed like it took a bit of time for everyone to get on the same page in terms of implementing feedback, but ultimately your team was a pleasure to work with.
CLIENT NAME: Susan F****** DATE: 11/04/2013 COMMENTS: We could not ask for a better team to work with us on this project. Our message, Eco farming, is complex, and we are still sorting out our own best ways of communicating it, so the Epipheo process was not just about production, it also helped us to hone and clarify what we wanted to say. That process will be helpful to us far beyond the video itself. Kirsten was fabulous to work with, always patient, clear and responsive, and the creative team was amazing--they chose to take a more challenging approach using music that we know meant a lot of extra work for them. We're so happy with the result; we're launching this week and are excited to make this a key element of our education and marketing. We work with a network of fruit and vegetable farms in the Northeast who don't ordinarily have access to a production of this quality and scope, and we want to thank everyone at Epipheo for going the extra mile to make this message sing! Many thanks from all of us.

CLIENT NAME: Kathy R**** DATE: 10/30/2013 COMMENTS: On the plus side: Your collective talents and creativity are remarkably wonderful! You've done really well not just working with us to accomodate our feedback but guiding us to a different concept of an interactive product, which will be much better than our original ideas for a series of videos. On the down side: The project is taking longer than we'd hoped, partially due to the changes and adjustments, still it would be good if we can see regular progress.
CLIENT NAME: Mike P******** DATE: 10/29/2013 COMMENTS: It has been truly an absolute pleasure to work with the Epipheo team. All along, I truly felt that Nicole and Levi were actually an extension of our organization - understanding our needs, and helping us to achieve our broader goals in ways that we wouldn't have imagined on our own. We're looking forward to moving on to the next phase of our project, and very excited to see where the path ultimately leads.
CLIENT NAME: Oren S***** DATE: 10/28/2013 COMMENTS: In general I have no doubt the talent on the team is fantastic. We like the creativity in the initial conversations quite a bit. However, domain knowledge was an issue for us. We had our hesitations going in that Epipheo not knowing our domain well would cause problems. We were re-assured that it wouldn't be an issue, but as we worked the project together, we really felt it was. The topic is just so great, so nuanced, and when we originally were hoping to let the Epipheo team drive the entire creative process, we realized over time that we would need to be a lot more hands on (which ultimately would lead to less creativity) because the message didn't reflect our domain well. Along the same lines, it's definitely a video process that's geared towards everyday consumers, as opposed to a very targeted subset. The people and personalities on our team were great, and I don't think there's any blame to go around, since we really enjoyed working with the team. My thoughts on future videos would be how do we address the domain knowledge challenge so the Epipheo team can be even more creative and have even more of an input during the process.
CLIENT NAME: Laura E********** DATE: 10/25/2013 COMMENTS: Patient, flexible, smart, dedicated. What more could we want!?
CLIENT NAME: Monica H******* DATE: 10/24/2013 COMMENTS: Epipheo provided us with excellent ideas and animations that ultimately translated in the video we wanted.
CLIENT NAME: Akilah S****** DATE: 10/24/2013 COMMENTS: The experience working with Matt and Eric was pleasant, extremely productive and creative. My only criticism is that I had to keep following up with them regarding promised due dates, and often times, I was not notified of revised ETAs. Otherwise, the overall process was pleasant and I look forward to working with the team again in the near future. Everyone really likes the video, and we are pleased that people "get it" after they watch the video. Great job, guys!!!
CLIENT NAME: Dave DATE: 10/23/2013 COMMENTS: Great organization to work with - took everyone's ideas and feedback and created a work of art that couldn't be more in-line with what we were looking for. Great job all around.
CLIENT NAME: Brian A******* DATE: 10/21/2013 COMMENTS: Now with three projects under my belt I have to say every interaction exceeds the previous. Thanks for being the rockstars that you are. The only reason I didn't rate quality of work as a 5 was I think we could have done a bit better with some of the visuals had budget and time been more available, but quality for dollar spent is exceptional. Thanks again... I look forward to the next project as I'm sure there will be more.

CLIENT NAME: John S******* DATE: 10/21/2013 COMMENTS: The team was very easy to work with, What most impressed me and probably bodes well for our Service is how quickly the team picked up on our value proposition and was able to accurately reflect it in the story. thx
CLIENT NAME: Paul S****** DATE: 10/18/2013 COMMENTS: I'll start by saying that I'm extremely happy with the final product. I also thought Matt was a nice guy who cared about the project and getting it right...but I didn't love the process of working with Epipheo. It took longer than it should've and I was entirely too involved in helping to get it right, particularly during the first draft stage where I believe I had to write the entire script... I'm happy to elaborate - call if you want more feedback.

CLIENT NAME: Alexander G******* DATE: 10/17/2013 COMMENTS: Hi guys, We are very happy with the video - we love the story and the voice over, sometimes we feel that the animation could be just slightly better - it felt like more effort went into some scenes than others and that towards the end of the project everyone (probably mainly ourselves) just wanted it to be done and the motivation faltered a little. However, that is only a minor point. Otherwise it was a pleasure to work together - I feel that our feedback was genuinely taken onboard. I would also specifically like to thank you guys for your patience with regards to our occasional tardiness (it's been a crazy year). The only constructive feedback I would have here is the switching between three creative directors. That created some confusion and repetition of work. All in all we are really happy, and personally I'm recommending you guys left right and centre.

CLIENT NAME: Adam A******* DATE: 10/08/2013 COMMENTS: There seemed to be quite a bit of miscommunication on this project that caused some delays. I attribute most of it to the fact that there were four different sets of pre-roll being produced for this video. Regardless, attention to detail is key and when in doubt please ask questions to ensure objectives/tasks are clear.
CLIENT NAME: Christian W******* DATE: 10/08/2013 COMMENTS: It was great to see the team's creativity and support. Although we had some hick-ups and miscommunications around timing, the team was always eager to accept new input and turn it into a high quality outcome. The result is really great and the effort put into making this work much appreciated.

CLIENT NAME: Daniel K******* DATE: 10/04/2013 COMMENTS: This was a very painful project... from losing the producer to having to write the script and a storyboard ourselves to having to really work through minor details to make sure the video would end up the way we wanted. The timezone difference was a problem in some cases, but more aggravating was the fact that the designer lives in Australia so getting in touch w/ him was impossible and the turnaround time was ridiculous. I could go on... but you get the point. Not the best project I've been involved with.

CLIENT NAME: Stuart B***** DATE: 09/23/2013 COMMENTS: 1. We felt like we got the B Team 2. The experience sold vs. delivered is miles apart. You told us when we first engaged that you'd find the 'human angle' on our story. You didn't until we pushed and pushed and pushed. We felt like we were holding you to account for your own promises 3. You didn't listen to what we said - you merely paid lip service and then replayed back a different understanding 4. You had to be chased constantly for updates and every deadline you committed to was missed apart from the final (extended) one 5. We feel like we could have got 80% of the results you delivered for 20% of the cost in 20% of the time. What you delivered is good - it was just painful getting there and it isn't as good as we expected.

CLIENT NAME: Eric C****** DATE: 09/14/2013 COMMENTS: Epipheo is perhaps the nicest, friendliest and most customer-focused company I have ever worked with. They ooze positive energy. This shows through in the quality of their work and makes interacting with them both fun and productive. I think improvements can be made with the online Hub, however. For a company that prides itself on easy and simple, the Hub is not. It's confusing, cluttered and difficult to navigate. Using a product like Basecamp to collaborate online would have been my preference because it is so simple and easy to use.
CLIENT NAME: Rebecca K*** DATE: 09/14/2013 COMMENTS: The quality was excellent and we are very pleased with the video. It seems that we had to communicate about the contract and other such aspects more than once for some reason. We kept thinking that these were addressed and they would come up again and again. We thought we were ready to go several times and woudl find out that something else needed to be signed (again?) The communications on this aspect via e-mail with many folks in both organizations should perhaps be streamlined through one 'PM' or Account Manager on your end....just a thought. Once the project started, the work and the updates went very well. Thank you!

CLIENT NAME: Max H***** DATE: 09/09/2013 COMMENTS: Very satisfied with overall experience. The video is great and we really enjoyed working with your team.

Overall though, we are thrilled with the video and the work that was done. Thank you!

Does he? we don't know we're in Virginia - but he seems like the kind of dude that would wear cool socks - maybe argyle ones in rad colors) The way that you worked with us was some really cool stuff. From the first kick off meeting all the way to the last greetings Our video about our proudest prod-uct It is now locked up (trying *really* hard to get this to rhyme) We hope it will go viral on the interwebs AND fill our competition with dread We hope to help managers get even better Maybe one day - one will send us a thank-you letter. Hope to work with you again soon and that you don't think we're a buncha loons. We're cheering you on from the sidelines Come visit and have a drink on our dime (when you're in DC!). in all seriousness, it was great to work with everyone - from Sonny to Chris to our video guru and voice over artist - Matt. Really appreciated the constant communication, endless creativity and patience, relentless drive to "get it right" for us. Matt's willingness to listen, brainstorm, and partner with us again and again didn't go unnoticed. We really appreciated the vigor your processes brought to the experience and felt inspired and impressed that a company with similar values, humor, and heart to us - does so very well - and does it right. :) We hope that we are able to work with you all again - and look forward to continuing our conversations. All the best, - The gang (the others might want to weigh in, too).

The second experience both the project management and the quality of the video were not that great. Sent this feedback a few weeks ago ----- Just some feedback from our end. We're having a really weird client experience with this current project. We are sending really, really specific feedback and every time the video comes back missing things. Our project manager, in our opinion, is not doing the greatest job. She is not looking at the video closely enough before sending it back to us. This creates additional work for us. We use to recommended Epipheo all the time. Our first experience with the company was great. But this experience hasn't been the best.
CLIENT NAME: Andrea V****** DATE: 08/30/2013 COMMENTS: Very awesome work guys! Was great working with you, and hopefully we'll have the chance to work together in the future on another project!

CLIENT NAME: Tad T******* DATE: 08/30/2013 COMMENTS: I was disappointed in the experience. It started out well with everything being organized and explained in detail, unfortunately from then on the process didn't go according to plan. At one point I felt little thought was being put into our video and it even appeared to be a duplication of other owrk. I appreciated the fact that in the end we were given a discount because of the issues. However, it doesn't change the fact that we missed several months of usage with our Epipheo.

For the first video it was a great process and the team were fantastic, the second video seem laboured and took a while to finalise. The final delays were on our side, but even getting to the final draft stage was laborious.

CLIENT NAME: Deric C***** DATE: 08/07/2013 COMMENTS: Working with Epipheo was difficult but rewarding because we had a lot of work to do internally in sorting out our message. Both Jed and Josh we're extremely patient throughout the process and asked the right questions to help us see our particular story and epiphany. The final video is a perfect reflection of who we are, and it was definitely worth the effort. My only criticism would be that, early in the process, it seemed like they were trying to fit our story into a particular mold and weren't listening to our concerns about the direction. This probably led to some frustration and wasted effort. Basically, the conversation seemed to go as follows: Us: "Um, that doesn't sound right and we probably won't like it, how about this?" Epipheo: "Trust us, this will be good" [time passes] Epipheo: "We finished the first draft and we really like it. What do you guys think?" Us: "Remember when we said we probably wouldn't like it? We were right." Overall, though, it was a great experience, and the frustration during the process was primarily the result of our lack of internal clarity. Thanks to Epipheo for their great work.
CLIENT NAME: Jack G******** DATE: 08/07/2013 COMMENTS: Great experience! The guys at Epipheo were so accommodating...and The Hub made it easy to communicate, get immediate responses and keep our projects on track. Thanks again for a great product!

CLIENT NAME: Amy A******** DATE: 07/31/2013 COMMENTS: Lucas and the team definitely made a major comeback to a very rough start. This survey does not do them justice but the final amazing video was nearly one month after the deadline because of the initial project manager not properly communicating or hearing out needs. The were too many cases where something was clearly requested and not implements causing lag time that we ended up being charged for. Dave and Lucas could not have been kinder or more helpful but aside from that it was one of the most frustrating experience I've had. And too much of the work and creativity had to be done on our side. For the price, that should not have been the case. Thanks again to the extra time energy and effort put in by the rest of the team in the second half. All the above stated, are ideas and message did evolve and they stepped up to the plate to get enough done in time so that we had at least an original round by the event we needed it for.

I especially like that Josh stands up to the client and tells the client what won't work or isn't reasonable. I also like that the process of developing the video forces the client to confront our own business strategy and identity to the core. The process is just as valuable as the outcome video in that regard. Thanks for the great work!

CLIENT NAME: Debbie P**** DATE: 07/25/2013 COMMENTS: Thanks for being patient with our long delays while we were waiting for too many approvals!
CLIENT NAME: Paul M******* DATE: 07/25/2013 COMMENTS: The bad: Our entire team was incredibly disappointed and frustrated with the creative effort given to our video. A contracted 3-week project turned into about 3 months because the creative execution was so mind-boggling poor -- for so long. It was clear to us that the Epipheo creative team assigned to our work was either a) in training, or b) a last-minute sub-contractor. Either way, the first two animation style executions were abysmal. To us the same animation craft and attention to detail was not applied to our brand work as it was to Epipheo's own videos and "name" clients. That was the most frustrating part of our experience and likely the reason why it will be very difficult for us to recommend Epipheo in the future. The good: The final product tells a good story about what we do and how we do it. My company is happy with the end product. Also, our project manager, Chris was very empathetic during the extended project time, had good communication with his clients and was very professional throughout the process.

CLIENT NAME: Gary B***** DATE: 07/22/2013 COMMENTS: Our first Epipheo experience could not have been better. The 2nd video didn't go as well. I believe the issue was two fold. 1. Trying to create a follow on video when the first video was awesome is hard. 2. We lost a lot of momentum every time one of us was unavailable. As a result, the project dragged out too long. Going fwd, I know that we have to just focus and crank it out as the quality suffers with too many starts and stops.

CLIENT NAME: Christopher M******* DATE: 07/14/2013 COMMENTS: The team was very engaging and cooperative in every aspect. They came up with an interesting concept, but there were a few hiccups. Starting from the much slower pace than anticipated, to the lack of fully understanding the genre/business of us as a client. Ultimately the video looks it's clearly been done by a non-gamer and someone who doesnt fully understand the technology despite our efforts to get it back in line. Therefore the final video is unfortunately below expectation. Maybe the main issue being the fact that noone in the team seemed to be interested in this field and therefore lacked the authenticity in the execution.
CLIENT NAME: Kevin B***** DATE: 07/14/2013 COMMENTS: The Epipheo team is great to work with and is always looking for creative ways to make the final product the best it can be. Great job!

Expected you to develop more of the script than us, i think we ended up writing it. We've only made a couple of these video's before so the process is new to us. Feedback/advice on how best to use the video from the experts would be very welcomed. We have ideas but would be good to hear from you guys. Thanks
CLIENT NAME: Joe P******* DATE: 07/09/2013 COMMENTS: Overall, everyone, especially Nicole has been great to work with. The only issue I have, is that there is an over-reliance on electronic communication, where picking up the phone and discussing issues where context and tone are able to be factored in. This would save lots of back and forth on The Hub, and the work would get done faster. This was a difficult project, starting and stopping over 9 months, so it may not be the best case to judge, but I felt that there was a concerted effort NOT to talk on the phone. Some of my messages asked specifically to be followed up witha phone call and I felt "shined on" more than once. It's part barometer, part hand holding, but verbal contact is a key component in any production, especially one where the parties are long distance. I would take a hard look at this issue if I produced for Epipheo, because it's the opposite of today's norm, right or wrong. I enjoyed working with a company that is willing to fight for its ideas. That does not happen much at our company. Your willingness to keep pushing for a great idea, while offering alternatives is great. The collaboration was great, if not a little passive for my tastes. I like the vibe, the irreverence, but in the end it's the work that speaks for itself. This work is very good. Thanks, Joe
CLIENT NAME: Jim E**** DATE: 07/08/2013 COMMENTS: The HUB software sucks... sorry but it sends automated emails that I NEVER recieved.

Looking forward to completing our full suite of associated assets (infographic & slideware) on this topic next.
CLIENT NAME: Scott H***** DATE: 07/03/2013 COMMENTS: I don't know who will actually read this, I hope it's the owner of the company. I was extremely dissatisfied with the service at Epipheo. We are a very small start-up and although I was very generously offered a discounted rate for my video, for which I truly am grateful, I was assured I wouldn't be getting a discounted service. I honestly feel like I got the "cheap seats" in terms of service. I do feel bad about saying that because I was given a discounted rate, and one of my producers was certainly kind and courteous, but it does say above to "not to pull any punches." Honestly, in my opinion, you guys have to do a MUCH more thorough job in the story extraction stage. I don't feel like my producers REALLY spent the time necessary trying to get to know our product and what we are- or at least what we are trying to be. I never got a sense they had any real interest in getting to know us, nor did they take the time to even sign up to our website and try it out. It seemed like a robotic approach, based largely on the limited written description that I had given them at the sign up process and one brief telephone call. I indicated in the original questionnaire and telephone meeting that my preferred level of involvement in the process was to be an active participant, but I was hardly ever consulted and when I finally received the first try at the "story" I was shocked and confused and felt like it was way off the mark. When I tried to push back I was met with a "sense" of real frustration, resistance and reluctance to trash the idea and go back to the drawing board. Had I received a script ahead of the animatics, I could have told them it wasn't working for me and saved everyone weeks of wasted time. The second attempt was admittedly better (not ideal) but almost all the suggestions I made to tweak the video were never followed through on. Email requests regarding changes went unanswered or dragged out for so long that I finally just gave up and asked for it to be delivered as-is. The whole process took weeks longer than promised, despite me responding promptly to all emails. Very disappointing, indeed. I have made a more than a few videos now and honestly, when we make the next one, I certainly won't be with Epipheo, nor will I be recommending them to others. The truth hurts but if Epipheo were my company, I'd want to know this.

CLIENT NAME: Hugh B***** DATE: 06/28/2013 COMMENTS: Very nice and creative!
CLIENT NAME: Rob H*** DATE: 06/27/2013 COMMENTS: We're really happy with our final video. It did take more input from our team to get there than we had hoped, and we occasionally wondered if we were getting Epipheo's best effort. In the end, however, the video met our needs and was very polished and professionally done. Thanks!

CLIENT NAME: Robby R******* DATE: 06/24/2013 COMMENTS: Working with Alex and the team was a lot of fun and overall very rewarding experience. While we had a couple of hiccups along the way Alex was quick to address my concerns and keep the project moving. The feedback we have been receiving from constituents and colleagues across the company about the video has been overwhelmingly positive. I would not be surprised if other groups at our company and even some of our constituents might be calling you soon to produce videos for them. Thank you for the awesome video!

CLIENT NAME: Daniel S*************** DATE: 06/18/2013 COMMENTS: The video is darn good. It cleverly communicates the end-user's problem, identifies with their felt need, and accurately sums up what our company provides. The experience was so-so. The team was all friendly and professional in conversation and The most disappointing thing about the experience was it felt like quality control and the quest to make the video work well were on our comapany's shoulders, not Epipheo's; Some examples: - The "advocates" in the video have white coats. But so did the "client", and some of the "team". We made the request for them to be visually differentiated, and the "client" was redrawn, but with too dark a suit, so you couldn't see the outlines on his arms, so we had to request that change too. The "team" member was never redrawn, despite us asking for him to have a sweater vest or something to that effect, and he remained visually similar to the "Advocates", which muddles things at 1:08. - The "Final" video was released to us with corrupted/tinny audio, worse by far than the "Draft" videos. So we had to request a redo. - Three drafts of the video were released to us with the incorrect call-to-action web URL, (.com instead of .org), despite requests from us each time for the correct URL. - We asked for a change of order on the "flags" that the guy picks up, and assumed that the text of the script would be changed to fit it. It wasn't, so we ended up putting the flags back in their original, suboptimal order. - Misspellings of the flags. This process -- where the client has to push the vendor for quality and accuracy -- is one I would have expected had we gone with our local $5k explainer video company. This is the kind of process that some of my more low-key nonprofit clients can occasionally expect from me when I'm volunteering or developing for $20/hour. I obviously didn't expect it from Epipheo. As a consultant who gave my strong vote to Epipheo from the get-go, I have had an icky, guilty, heavy feeling at times throughout this process, and I don't feel that can refer other folks to Epipheo at this point. Which is kind of a bummer, because the video itself is pretty sweet. A few people have asked me "who made it, for how much", because the final video is engaging and communicates well. I don't say these things pointed at Alex specifically, because I don't really know where in the chain these things are breaking down; who's responsible to get which types of feedback implemented, etc. And Alex was always a "trooper" and respectful on the phone when we'd supply the feedback, I just don't know where things went slipping from there. Perhaps the animator is overworked, or your IT folks need to supply better workflow tools. I only know what I saw. Thanks for your organizational enthusiasm for raw truth. I tried to neither pull punches nor wear brass knuckles. I will willingly admit that I'm pretty sure that the video is quite a bit awesomer than I can personally see it as; people keep asking me "who made it?" "maybe we could get one..." and the $18k pricetag seems -- to them and me -- about right for the end product, but the process felt more like a $4-5k process.

CLIENT NAME: Rebekah S************* DATE: 06/12/2013 COMMENTS: Alex was awesome -- really helpful. I appreciated her direction and her flexibility with our sometimes lengthy feedback. I really love how the video turned out. It's funny, it's relatable, and I think it does a great job of clearly explaining what we do. I was sometimes frustrated with what appeared to me to be a lack of attention to detail in implementing some of the changes we requested (e.g. incorrect website in the video, typos, etc.) even after we had stressed them several times. Honestly, it surprised me a lot to experience that from an organization that otherwise seems so professional (high price in the field, professional staff and website, etc). Even on the websites we build, which can be edited at any time in the future, I couldn't imagine making it to the final draft and having typos and un-implemented changes! Anyway. Like I said, overall I was really pleased with how things ended up. But the seeming lack of attention to fussy little details was a little disquieting. Marred an otherwise very positive experience.
CLIENT NAME: Mitch W***** DATE: 06/12/2013 COMMENTS: Really loved working with Matt. He is a great project manager.

CLIENT NAME: Steve I**** DATE: 06/10/2013 COMMENTS: I was very pleased with the fresh design approach for the animation. I think there were communication problems at times - issues or requests discussed with the producer didn't seem to get to the designer(s) or were ignored. We also had a logo design piece - this was a mistake on our part - we should have stuck with what you guys know. The animation is superb and we'll be back when we need another.

CLIENT NAME: Greg P*** DATE: 06/04/2013 COMMENTS: My only complaint, and its only a half complaint because part of the blame is on me, is the total amount of time it took to compete the video. Our initial target was April 20th and the actual delivery date was today June 4. Other than that - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N4VAx64JBs
CLIENT NAME: Chip W****** DATE: 06/03/2013 COMMENTS: A great experience overall. We're thrilled with the video and the experience and the professionalism shown by Jeff and the whole team was great. No reason for the 4 out of 5 on the video other than I was maybe hoping to go one step further with flooring people with the epiphany about what we do and how we differ. That's not a failure of Epipheo at all, just something that's extremely tough to do in our industry. That said, I'm still extremely happy with the result and think it will certainly help distinguish us from the rest of the world. Thanks!

CLIENT NAME: Chris A******** DATE: 05/30/2013 COMMENTS: Overall we are delighted with the end product - it does what we need it to do. You guys are cool and very good - because we like you i wanted to give you some feedback on our experience (one of our company values is that Feedback is a gift) The process is really confusing, not helped by three changes in personnel through the development. If you started the project with an overview of the stages and what happens in each stage it would be a BIG help. This would enable you to explain the jargon you use (and obviously know inside out). We just did not get the differences between an animatic and animation because their was no high level plan at the start (or if there was we all missed it) The hub is confusing to work with - again if Epipheo 101 included an explanation of how it works and where you access the latest versions it would be a BIG help. By the end of the process it was starting to make sense but for the first four weeks it was a nightmare. You've got to remember that at that stage your clients will all have 100's of other urgent and important tasks to be dealing with - keeping the business running, developing other marketing activities, recruiting a team to deal with the demand they hope to stimulate. We struggled like hell with the script - trying to feed in suggestions which were either not incorporated or implemented exactly as we drafted - when really we wanted to benefit from your brilliance. The voice over artist selection was a nightmare - not sure how you'd fix this but for a novice (or virgin) its almost impossible to get past the subject they are talking about in the sample and see through to how the voice could be on our material. Obviously the need for an English accent made this worse in our case - but if the samples were classified by type of voice over this would help. We found ourselves discounting artists based on the first sample in their selection - especially when it was a cheesy "Sports FM" type advert - although working through the artists on the second and third occasion the samples that appeared second or third in the file were often more relevant to our target. Hope that makes sense and that i get a special prize for length of feedback. The video should be live on our site by the end of this week. Thanks for all your help - hope we weren't too much of a nightmare client. I will recommend your services.
CLIENT NAME: Michael A***** DATE: 05/30/2013 COMMENTS: Making a video is tough. Erika and Josh made it easier (actually, did all the hard work). Great to partner with you guys on this. Appreciate your willingness to take feedback in a constructive way and create a video we're really, really proud of.
CLIENT NAME: Kira P**** DATE: 05/29/2013 COMMENTS: This video turned out great, and we are so so happy with it, but didn't go as smoothly as the other two videos we've created with Epipheo. I felt the creativity wasn't at the same level and we had to work harder to get there.
CLIENT NAME: Caroline B****** DATE: 05/29/2013 COMMENTS: Responses to our amends were sometimes slow. Additionally some of the feedback we gave was ignored the first time it was submitted, until we reminded you a second or even third time e.g. adding a frame for Mr Ideal to be spending more time with customers before going onto the golf course. The English VO was added much later than hoped for. At times it felt like we were the ones writing the script. Having said all that - we are very happy with the finished product. Thank you.
CLIENT NAME: Mimi K****** DATE: 05/28/2013 COMMENTS: amazing product, overall very happy. only constructive criticism would be for more specific communication about deadlines and to avoid open-ended things like "we're working on it" - "will have asap" - since that doesn't translate to a specific date that can be planned around. thanks for everything!!
CLIENT NAME: Gael B******* DATE: 05/28/2013 COMMENTS: The overall experience was wonderful, the folks at Epipheo got their balls together to tell us that our initial idea was wrong and that we should trust them. Which proved to be exactly the right thing to do. Nicole was always available and a pleasure to work with, the only reason why the rating is not 5, is because I felt like she had a hard time reaching out to the designers and getting specific timelines from them, which was key in our project. But always a pleasure to talk to her. We only hope to be able to do other videos with you in the future, Epipheo was awesome. Thanks!

CLIENT NAME: Alex R**** DATE: 05/28/2013 COMMENTS: The product was fantastic, but improvements could be made to the process. I felt the Epipheo team regularly did not incorporate our comments/edits and as a result, delays and rewrites occurred that were unnecessary. For example, it took us three (3) times to emphasize during the scripting process that we did not want "Jimmy Buffett" or any likeness in the ephipheo, yet it kept getting thrown in the rewrites from the Ephipheo team and even made it to the first version of last stage...animated into the video! There were numerous examples where we felt the Ephipheo team was simply not listening to us, and they would almost never communicate with hard dates or times projects would be completed by. That being said, we ended up with a good product, we just feel we could have done without some extra frustration down the road. As an aside, I have dealt with another Epipheo team and they were excellent on timing...so I do have an overall favorable opinion of the company and would certainly use them again.

CLIENT NAME: Andrea E**************** DATE: 05/07/2013 COMMENTS: You know, this started off as not such a great experience. I have to say I was disappointed with the work progress or the lack thereof, for several weeks, despite several meetings and discussions and background notes provided by us, the client. I saw lots of great customer videos showcased on your website and yet work on our project stalled or produced unsubstantial results. My feedback to our project team lead was met on 3 separate occasions with the reply to modify the existing (unsatisfactory) video. No alternative solution was offered. It was not until we pushed extremely hard and then asked for a different team that the work took an amazing turn for the better and very quickly. In the final analysis, the slow path to success was not the issue. It was the failure of the team to "hear" and accept our feedback on several occasions that caused the frustration and resulting dissatisfaction. Chris, upon joining the team, turned things around completely, however. He was an amazing project lead, heard our feedback and incorporated ii into the subsequent video. The creative resources supporting Chris delivered with flying colors. I provide this feedback not to indict anyone but to praise the turnaround and to offer my feedback that it is important to have project leads who "hear" and respond to client feedback (as opposed to forcing the same idea over and over without hearing the feedback). The ability to hear and understand feedback will make projects more effective and will make the client happier. Thanks for working with us. We look forward to creating our next Epipheo with you.

The only negative thing I would say is that I was surprised that you require additional spend to gain access to the raw media; if we need to make a small wording change, logo, etc., we would have to come back and pay you guys which I'm not a fan of -- but I get it, it's a business. Anyway, thanks for the hard work; we've gotten a ton of positive comments thus far.

It would be great to have a sheet of basic instructions for how to post the video online (through youtube or Vimeo.)

CLIENT NAME: Clint B***** DATE: 04/11/2013 COMMENTS: Our "What is Earthing" video has been a vision for us for a long time. We have dreamed of the day that we would have a simplistic informative video to help explain to the world just what the heck Earthing really is. In the end I feel that we have accomplished our goal and produced that video. Although we hit a few rough patches along the way (some of them caused by us and just not being familiar with the process as well as being extremely picky about the content) It all worked out in the end. With that said I see room for improvement in the approval process. I also thought that the Hub was cumbersome and hard to navigate. Oh and finally this tiny little window that I have to type my long review in is a bit annoying. Overall I guess what I am trying to say is I think that all of the things that need improvement revolve around the steps, systems, and procedures that provide information and approval to the client. Particularly to someone who is not familiar with the process of having a video produced. Thank You

We were impressed with how well the team developed a video that really hit the mark. We are also impressed with how well the team made the minor adjustments we suggested. The only problem we found is that lack of documentation re: how to embed and display the video on our pages. how to use YouTube or Vimeo. Chris setup a call w/ us and he was able to help us. having documentation and then some handholding already setup is what we expected for the delivery of the video. Thank you,

I would have liked to have seen more choices when considering options. For the most part, we were provided with the final recommendation. It would have helped us think through what is ideal for us if we had some choices up front. That being said, our team was incredibly flexible in accommodating our edits throughout the process and the experience was very positive!
CLIENT NAME: Larry R***** DATE: 04/01/2013 COMMENTS: Your prompt reminds me of my favorite line from the movie, "Say Anything"...Lloyd Dobler: I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that. I digress. I absolutely LOVED working with Nicole. She's is Gold. My only piece of criticism is around the URL...how it's displayed - I would have opted for a cleaner, crisper layout given the opportunity to chime in and the fact it's not "clickable" which is very unfortunate. This latter fact was made clear to me was not possible early on in the process however since then I've viewed explainer videos with clickable URLs at the end.

CLIENT NAME: Aubrey F***** DATE: 03/28/2013 COMMENTS: Nicole was a dream to work with. She was very quick to answer all of my questions and suggestions. The video turned out to be everything that I had envisioned it to be and so much more cooler! Would love the opportunity to work together again!
CLIENT NAME: Alissa C****** DATE: 03/27/2013 COMMENTS: Jed was great to work with and had great patience....especially considering our Client took more time that we all had originally planned. Everyone at Epipheo was super attentive and great at getting back to questions/concerns as soon as possible. We will definitely partner with Epipheo again in the future!

CLIENT NAME: Todd S**** DATE: 03/26/2013 COMMENTS: Loved the experience from start to finish. We love the final product and think your team did a wonderful job in setting expectations and responding to questions. If I had to find some room for improvement I would have to say that the process seemed to start off a little rocky. We were concerned that you didn't capture the right level of detail in the kickoff meeting when we saw the first draft of the script...but later it all came together. And overall, we're very happy. We've shown the video to small groups of internal people and received applause at the end of each. We're excited to launch the video publicly and hope to get the same reaction.

CLIENT NAME: Calev M**** DATE: 03/23/2013 COMMENTS: working with you is a pleasure difficult to measure much time was expended on a first cut abruptly ended yet the project on time was finished without quality diminished i hope we do many more of these viral videos galore let's pray for a million views on behalf of the Jews as the giraffe said to the baboon, let's be in touch soon
CLIENT NAME: Nick L****** DATE: 03/22/2013 COMMENTS: We are pretty happy with how the video turned out - we'll see how the reaction is from people not in our company. Regarding the process - things seemed to go great until we got our first "draft" of the animation. It was really poor quality and definitely not worth $20,000 or anywhere close. I complained and the animation was scrapped, which was totally appreciated - I'm glad we didn't get any pushback on that - but of course this meant that there was another several weeks before we saw a draft of the video again. The next draft was much better, and it was relatively straightforward to make some edits to it and get it to a place we were happy with. I think Jeff was great to work with, but obviously if we'd been on a tight timeline (which thankfully we weren't) then we would have been very unhappy. I think in the future you should try to make the first draft of the animation high quality - similar to the ones you showcase on your Vimeo channel. Thanks! Nick
CLIENT NAME: Chris H*** DATE: 03/22/2013 COMMENTS: So glad we chose Epipheo for this project and not a "cheaper option" - we really did get what we paid for. Kirsten was great to work with and I'm sure was supported by a great team behind the scenes. Thanks guys!

CLIENT NAME: Sean DATE: 03/20/2013 COMMENTS: I loved working with your team. They were all great and very customer service oriented. Good people. The sentiment on our side about the video is that it is pretty good, but not great. But, I also think we have really high expectations and know the richness of our story. It feels like it is hard to capture it all in this format. Thanks for everything!
CLIENT NAME: Kitty R********* DATE: 03/19/2013 COMMENTS: Epipheo did a great job of hanging in with or team and client's very slow responses. I don't love the final piece - it feels dull and predictable, but I think it was our creative team's fault more than yours.

CLIENT NAME: Neal S****** DATE: 03/05/2013 COMMENTS: We were really impressed by the turnout of the video, as well as Jed and Josh's persistence to make it right. The process took longer than we anticipated, but this has nothing to do with Epipheo's ability to do its job. After many cycles, we hashed out a concept that worked for us, and we are thrilled with the result.
CLIENT NAME: Kawan D**** DATE: 03/04/2013 COMMENTS: Feedback from the two who worked most with you. 1. video 3 and experience 2 It was a huge timesink, always left phonecalls with the feeling the Epipheo team understood us, but every iteration proved that not much stuck. Our team spent way too much time re-writing the outline and script. The saving grace was that Epipheo team has a great animation/design skills to iterate quick on feedback. - 2. video 4 and experience 3 First I'll go through the difficult parts, and then the great parts. The difficult: We were hoping to have more guidance in the process of creating the story and representing the company. Instead we found ourselves having to spend a lot of time figuring out how to frame the product. We imagined this would be something Epipheo could do. This meant spending a lot of time crafting out a story plan, figuring out when details would be important- basically putting on the creative hat and the writing hat. Feedback went ignored sometimes. For instance, in the story plan phase me mentioned to avoid the convenience angle, and then found it to be the main storyline in the animatic. Later on, we would have to specify through a couple iterations to take out things like "related videos". This isn't too bad, but it would sometimes feel like our feedback wasn't really read. I've worked with many creatives and there are always wow moments where I'm impressed with the imagination and ingenuity of who I am working with. I was hoping this would happen more with this video, though it did happen a couple times which was nice. It happened when we saw the style. It definitely happened at the final iteration. For instance, putting that silly cat video really changed the feel of the video and made it a lot more enjoyable. If we hadn't pushed new versions this part wouldn't have been included, so I wonder to what extent the video could have been better if we pushed harder. When a week goes by and there is little interaction it feels like the project is on the backburner or an afterthought. After we voiced concern of the development, things moved more swiftly, but still, I wondered how much creative time was actually put into this project among the many projects Epipheo was working on. The great: The attitude from Epipheo was wonderful, always positive and energetic despite moments of stress. This was very refreshing and made the whole process more optimistic. For me, the turning point in the process came when I watched the video about epipheo and saw that moments of stress and arguing are a part of the process. At that point I took it in stride and saw it as a sign of progress, rather than a setback. the selection of voices was great, also the animation style selection was wonderful. The timeliness of the piece, and how Epipheo worked with us to have it out on time was fantastic. Honestly, the jump to the final iteration from the one before was huge, everything came together, in a surprising way. After that, and seeing a final product that was satisfying and what we were looking to convey, I felt better about the process.
CLIENT NAME: Jennifer S**** DATE: 03/04/2013 COMMENTS: It was awesome to work with Erika on our project. We've found it's rare for someone to hear us and understand us the way she was able to. We've struggled with taking what we do and condensing it down to its essence, we tend to get lost in the weeds. But you guys were able to get us there quickly and produce a video that hits all the marks and that we're very proud of. Thank you!!
CLIENT NAME: Maria M****** DATE: 03/04/2013 COMMENTS: Ours is a hard sale--and you guys seriously nailed it. The executives were very pleased. I got called "awesome" multiple times, but really you guys are the ones deserving of that adjective. Thank you for all your hard work!

Smart, completely on top of it, always positive even when we were difficult. Seriously, a superstar. He did a superb job, and I can't believe how effortless this video was for us. You can quote me on that if you want.
CLIENT NAME: Jean C****** DATE: 03/01/2013 COMMENTS: THis was a great overall experience with a tough concept to capture. We have had great feedback on the video. Your patience made up for, at times, a lack of direction on really helping us focus our message and visually communicate it. Overall we would work with you all again because we know that you would hang in there with us until we got it right. Thanks again and tell Alex she is awesome. CB

As a creative director I'm usually sitting where she is in our internal projects and I understand the challenges of extracting what is wanted and converting it into a functionally effective asset. Not always easy and rarely fun and she (and team) score high on both accounts. Now to test virality...

CLIENT NAME: Sarah F******* DATE: 02/20/2013 COMMENTS: Our Epipheo team was really exceptional in working with us. I understand how extremely hard it is to work with another Agency who is outsourcing work and still wants to maintain control. There were rounds of edits and input and all was met with a very professional team who went above and beyond to keep us happy and still deliver on time. I couldn't have asked for better people to work with on a project like this.
CLIENT NAME: Jeff M*** DATE: 02/19/2013 COMMENTS: Apologies for the delayed feedback - better late than never! Video ended up coming together great. Team was professional and responsive. We were a bit surprised by the quick turnaround needed for the VO and felt that could have been communicated better. Also felt like some feedback we provided in terms of creating spaces and tweaking the VO should have come from the Epipheo team. Also, it felt like we had additional talent come onboard at the end of the project as quality ramped up really quickly in terms of video animation and effects (in final rounds of editing). All in all, would use Epipheo again.
CLIENT NAME: Caroline W**** DATE: 02/19/2013 COMMENTS: Epipheo team was easy to work with and the hub was a useful tool for providing feedback.

CLIENT NAME: Guy M***** DATE: 02/14/2013 COMMENTS: All in all a very good experience and a great video, There was only one area I think could be significantly improved. Our narration was done before the animation was created and as a result some of the intimation and tone is off. I feel it would have been a better outcome if the narrator could see the video whilst they read the script. That way, they would know where the visual humour was and could better gauge when to vary the pitch and tone.
CLIENT NAME: Carlyn S******** DATE: 02/11/2013 COMMENTS: Pleased with overall experience, but there were a few last-minute changes to the schedule based on last-minute changes to VO and designer schedules. Would have really loved to have a more final animatic, for example, but we couldn't since the designer suddenly went OOO.
CLIENT NAME: Paul T***** DATE: 02/07/2013 COMMENTS: Josh is an absolute rock star, His work was way WAY above par, Committed to awesome stuff, No crap, no fluff, When I look at the video, I have to ask why? My eyes, tear up - and I begin to cry. THANKS JOSH! (and team).
CLIENT NAME: Tom W**** DATE: 02/07/2013 COMMENTS: Nice work. Process made sense, and we ended up with two good pieces, one of which we have already put to use extensively. One miss from our side perhaps. When using it at a noisy trade show, it made a bit less sense without the audio. We can show captions, but wonder of you have encountered this use case before.

CLIENT NAME: Trevor G******** DATE: 02/01/2013 COMMENTS: I just paid nearly all of my seed capital launch budget to have the great Epihany Masters create the proud epiphany moment I'd been imagining for several years while building this project. In the end, because Epipheo just couldn't "get it", I had to write it myself. Which makes it a $20,000 2min animation, which, frankly I coulda bought by the pound (about $3~5k) here in LA. Maybe another $200 for the VO. I do this for a living, y'know. It's obvious my dissatisfaction with the first round put peoples noses out of joint and a lesser effort was applied thereafter. I respectfully asked for a discount but was flatly refused - as you knew I couldn't get the end product without paying up. Bully for you. I was going to be so proud and SO vocal about this video, and of course it will have to get used, but I would say it remains maybe 50% of its potential to do the job promised, so now my Epipheo word of mouth will err on the negative side. All I wanted was the humor that I know you're capable of. If only I'd got to read the script before first animatics, maybe things woulda been different. If only you'd let me come to your offices and show you the product, maybe things woulda been different. Anyway, I have the alpha version, so now at least I can pay more to have it made right. Correct the audio that I couldn't make cos your guy went "out of town" etc. So painful. Learning process I guess. You got your money. And to think I had three more videos lined up... Sorry that didn't rhyme. Not in a rhyming mood.

Now everyone has seen it, and we all agree it's hipper than a hipster drinking herbal tea; cooler than an 80's youth pastor with a rocking goatee; more impressive than being an academy award nominee.

CLIENT NAME: Damon T***** DATE: 12/28/2012 COMMENTS: We are used to having a team guide us thru their expertise. Good producer but difficult process. One point of contact was not enough. Not enough best practices process to benefit from. No character development or product display requirements meeting, nor direct creative sessions with creative(s), which would of saved us all a lot of time. Much of deliverables were way off the written spec for much of the process. We didn't really end up with what we asked for. i.e. the Roboshow should not have stopped to show the features of Play, Pause, Skip, etc. but we were so far behind schedule we let it go. Still, the dedication of Chris to help us get it right, or more right at least, was a key factor in us rating it near gold in its final outcome. So, thanks to all involved. We hope it serves us all well! - Cheers, Happy Holidays!

CLIENT NAME: Rick D****** DATE: 12/14/2012 COMMENTS: Since you are asking for feedback, I want to tell you why the marks are not both 5's. First, we are VERY grateful for Epipheo's decision to work with us and for providing us with a highly discounted rate on our video. We would never have had the chance to work with you otherwise and we would not have two very cool videos to use for marketing our club at this point. Our interim video (the rough black and white version) was AWESOME. It blew us away!!! Our final video is not as good, in our minds, as the interim video. It is still a great video, but the bar was put way high by the interim product and the final video just could not make the same bar. What happened, you might ask? Well, if you were to look for a perfect 5 on both of the measurements, there probably should have been a bit more work on both of our parts between the interim video and the "first" final version of our video. What went wrong? Look at the details in our hub...it's all there. I don't want to rehash it right now. I think the only thing that has some of our team members scratching their heads is how we ended up with a chalk outlined style in our final video, without seeing something that looked that way (as an example) prior to the delivery of the final video. I had not mentioned this as an issue before because I felt that it would be a deal breaker. Now that the deal is over, I want to let you know that, in the future, I would recommend that (when dealing with a new customer like us), you explain what the final style is going to be like prior to dumping it on us as the final video. It was a surprise, and not an incredibly well received one, but, we are paying a discounted rate and we promised to play nicely and to work around your schedules, etc., to obtain the discounted rate, so we did not previously mention this topic. What did we expect? Well, we expected a colorized, more animated version of the interim product, with a similar look. We will definitely use both the interim and final videos for marketing our club, but, right now, we are planning on using the interim product for the foreseeable future...IT ROCKS!!! Your team, especially Ford, Jeff, and Chris were a real pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend your team to anyone who likes our video. But, we would also caution such folks to pay close attention to the time between the interim deliverable and the final video. We did not pay enough attention to this time, and we have only ourselves to blame for our inability to say that the final product also rocks...thanks for asking for feedback...it's been cleansing!

CLIENT NAME: Colleen S******* DATE: 12/11/2012 COMMENTS: Great responsive work from the Epipheo team. Listened to clients' needs and came back quickly with solutions. Made it a fun process with immediate gradification. Not like the long drawn out process of making a traditional video. Loved the humor of the Hub and the questionaire! You all made it look so easy. Thanks - your video and all the edits hit the mark!
CLIENT NAME: Matt D***** DATE: 12/11/2012 COMMENTS: There once was a girl named Nicole. Wise beyond her years, an old soul. She got everything right, It was never a fight. And her humor is always so droll.

CLIENT NAME: Kayla J****** DATE: 12/08/2012 COMMENTS: I think the biggest thing we learned through this experience is that our epiphany and company story is hard to tell. We didn't quite get the message across we had thought, but the video definitely did turn out well and will be very useful for us! Thanks for the help in bringing our story to life.

CLIENT NAME: Robb D*** DATE: 12/06/2012 COMMENTS: We were ultimately happy with our finished video and thought that our account manager tried very hard to satisfy us. We were disappointed, though, that our animation didn't quite match the quality of other Epipheos that originally attracted us. It seemed that Epipheo didn't quite understand our story, wrote a weak script, and struggled to add much to the process beyond the final animation. We will likely work with a different multimedia company for our next project like this.

CLIENT NAME: George R**** DATE: 12/04/2012 COMMENTS: All, The group at idRADAR has had nothing but the best experience working with everyone we've been in contact with, but primarily Jonathan. Jonathan has been both a great communicator, but he is also able to take our suggestions and ideas and translate them into vignettes, stories, subtle nuances and sounds applicable to our themes and concepts. Great experience from our end. Thanks.

CLIENT NAME: Larry R*** DATE: 12/03/2012 COMMENTS: We appreciated the way the Epipheo team rebounded after the initial attempt did not work out. The finished product is something we like a lot.
CLIENT NAME: Lori A******* DATE: 11/28/2012 COMMENTS: Too many rounds of edits. This was both my company's fault and Epipheo's fault: we have complex content that wasn't fully understood by the Epipheo team. I chose Epipheo because it seemed to be on the cutting edge of technology and to have some staff who specialize in math and complex subject matter (according to our original sales rep). Overall, the subject matter proved complex and we had too may cooks in the kitchen on our side. But, 11 months later, we do have a great video.
CLIENT NAME: Janet C***** DATE: 11/28/2012 COMMENTS: Kirsten and the epipheo team are fabulous talents! We loved our experience. The Voice over was the most difficult thing for us...we grew attached to Kirsten's delivery but respect the input you gave that a male voice pulls better for videos. But I still love Kirsten's "face you can punch!" Thanks for everything!
CLIENT NAME: Max S***** DATE: 11/26/2012 COMMENTS: Unfortunately, you can't win them all. I wish you and your team the best and I hope you nail your next projects!

CLIENT NAME: Don V******* DATE: 11/23/2012 COMMENTS: When you invent things, you tend to want to tell people about all the internal details. Clearly it isn't possible to explain things in detail, and it's important to find the story that you are able to tell in the time allotted. I think the team at Epipheo did a great job, of putting up with our nit-picking, and coming up with a finished product that we are really proud of. I look forward to working with you guys again, you're good at what you do, and we appreciate being able to work with you.
CLIENT NAME: Paige L**** DATE: 11/20/2012 COMMENTS: Again, the project team, Chris, Kirsten, Nicole, were great! We really like the end video and think it's a very creative way to present the content. There were a few bumps in the road in the begininng--not knowing we needed to have an ironed out "epiphany" before the kick-off--but once we got things going it was smooth sailing. Justin seemed a bit too informal and relaxed at times, but eventually we got things running. Justin also failed to follow the invoicing requirements as outlined on the SOW--he did not send the invoices to the correct person, and he did not follow the invoicing milestones as agreed upon. Other than that, it was a great experience.
CLIENT NAME: Paige L**** DATE: 11/20/2012 COMMENTS: The project team, Chris, Kirsten, Nicole, were professional, creative and hard working. We enjoyed the experience and are very satisfied with the product. We had a few snags in the beginning, but once we were able to better communicate our objective and goal, the project team came up with a great story.

He took what's really complex and turn it into a really simple and compelling story. And Sonny, has been such a pleasure to work with. Not only was he very responsive, he definitely went over and beyond and was doing his best at all times and I really mean at ALL times (including nights and weekends) to make sure I had everything I need. I would work with this team in a heartbeat! Great work!

CLIENT NAME: Matt B****** DATE: 11/08/2012 COMMENTS: Great start through the VO. Chris helped us just nail our strategy and script. He really understood our product and what we were trying to convey. Adherence to promised timelines was a constant struggle once we started animation, and we received quite a few versions for "approval" that didn't reflect our extensive previous feedback. Long stretches of not seeing anything and no communication after blowing through deadlines. Great push at the end (after switching animators?) and I am a happy customer. But I was pretty close to pulling the plug and just forfeiting deposit through late August and September. I understand this was due to the workload on your end. Busy is good, and I'm glad you guys are growing, but I didn't always feel like an important or valued customer. Love the finished product. You need a little of heat and pressure to make a diamond, right? I plan to use you guys again once we get some more products moving. I was thrilled in the beginning, then really frustrated, but ended up thrilled.
CLIENT NAME: Leuk A******* DATE: 11/08/2012 COMMENTS: Core to our experience I feel was Jonathan and his great customer service through manner and willingness to meet our timelines / timezone but most importantly ...to work with us creatively. His subtle hand steered us away from bad decisions in a way that was skillful and did not feel stifling or obstructive to the creative process. Thank you!
CLIENT NAME: Susan R****** DATE: 11/08/2012 COMMENTS: We were not well organized for the project on our side and it seems that led to delays and confusion. Overall the video came out well despite all this. My only suggestion would be that Epipheo could have brought issues and poor communication to the attention of management to rectify things sooner. I thought that everyone at Epipheo seemed creative and professional however.
CLIENT NAME: Zach B*** DATE: 11/06/2012 COMMENTS: Very pleased with the video. The project was months and months so we had that nice cushion. Really happy to be working with Eric A and the talented team. My only wish is more options for voice overs and a little more heads up on how the look and feel would be executed. It ended up lovely, but with another squad could have been trouble. Love you guys and thank you so much for the donation of resources, time and love into a successful campaign. We couldn't have done it without you. In the end we far exceeded our goals.

CLIENT NAME: Terry P****** DATE: 10/28/2012 COMMENTS: Have completed two projects with you guys and am really, really pleased with the outcome and quality. We've gotten a great response from our customers and markets. The conventional wisdom has been that our CEO in Europe HATES animation, so for months we'd been expecting the axe to fall on this effort. Instead, our CEO said last month he thought the Epipheo product was extremely well done and that the animation and humor was appropriate and effective, without being too silly. The programs are now being shown to other divisions as a best in class example of how animation should be executed. The teams in Cincinatti and Portland have were awesome to work with. Especially appreciated Chris' creativity and ability to make two pretty mundane subjects fun and engaging.
CLIENT NAME: Paul S**** DATE: 10/27/2012 COMMENTS: I am really impressed with the professionalism you guys brought to the relationship especially very prompt communication responses to questions and adjustments needed.

CLIENT NAME: Steve P***** DATE: 10/25/2012 COMMENTS: The project started off very well. Nicole was very succinct and had a very quick understanding of where we wanted to go with our message. Middle of the project hit a few major bumps and we were not at all pleased with the overall project management piece of the project. We felt we were not afforded enough attention to detail when it came time to put forth the 1st draft of the video. It was not good and quite frankly we did not feel it came close to what we thought we should expect from Epipheo studios. However, Nicole was quick to reconvene her team and refocus their efforts to assure us that we would in fact, receive a final product worthy of the Epipheo brand and reflect our expectations. All's well that ended well! We are very happy with the final product and we were grateful of Nicole's efforts and dedication to the production of our video. Best Steve

I hated much of the process, in particular the "waterfall" approach to video development. I recognize the need for process to contain costs in a creative project like this, but I didn't think it was a good fit for us, and instead made for a very long (10 months!) and sometimes painful experience.

CLIENT NAME: Ken A******* DATE: 10/12/2012 COMMENTS: Have worked with Epipheo a number of times, and overall, we've been happy with the finished result. The creative process was difficult this last time around - we had strong feelings about the storyboards (and granted, they changed throughout the process) - but getting buy-in from our team at Epipheo was difficult. It was a challenge articulating/translating the vision, and while we appreciate the insight/best practices/guidance that the team at Epipheo provides, we also felt resistance to changes. This is constructive, no question. However, this ultimately created a gap in expectations - we were getting agreement when we discussed changes, but then were disappointed by a lack of buy-in when the next round of storyboards were delivered.

The creative team, voice over team, script writers all worked very well together to help us refine the smallest detail. Rachel, Ford and Eric were each great team leaders! Thank you everyone at Epipheo.

EPIPHEO
(eh-pih-fee-ohhh)

Yes, we made up this word. It’s a squish word—or squord—that consists of “Epiphany” and “Video.”

The team at Epipheo is absolutely fantastic to work with. They’ve produced a number of videos for us, and they never fail to impress. Some of our offerings are a bit complicated, but the team at Epipheo “got it” without any problems. They kept the lines of communication open at all times, and we always knew how our production was being handled and where they were in the process. I would recommend Epipheo to others without hesitation, and can’t wait to work with them again in the future.Jenna Ostmann

Working with Epipheo is a blast! Our company has produced our own creative for over a decade, and it is refreshing to be able to explain our ideas and have such a talented team bring them to life.

Words can't describe how much I love Epipheo. Everyone I interacted with during my project with Epipheo was talented, creative, and really intentional about capturing and communicating the vision of my company. I was impressed with the way they were able to listen to my ideas while still sharing their own opinions and professional experience. As far as the final product, we get compliments on our video all the time, and I'm happy to say that it has done a perfect job of communicating my company's vision to both customers and investors. I'd work with Epipheo again in a heartbeat and give them my highest recommendation!Jody Porowski

FAQ 01
What industries do you work with?
We work well with any industry that needs to create video content to deliver an epiphany. Really, if you're anyone who needs to communicate why an idea or a product is important, we should talk.

You get the idea.

FAQ 02
Are you a video studio?
About that… We do have a robust video production studio and process to help us fully utilize that medium for the benefit of telling stories we believe in. Video is a very effective medium for storytelling, and the internet is THE way to share. So, yes, we are a video studio, but only to the extent that it helps us tell the best story to the right audience. We are proficient in live-action videos, animated videos, music videos, stop-motion videos, or any kind of videos except for boring videos.
next FAQ

Epipheo started in 2009 when Jon Collins and a group of friends started creating videos that communicated why a product or service was important. People have called them “Explainer Videos,” but we believe that communicating the human value of a thing is more effective in changing behavior than just describing how the thing works. Sometimes things need to be explained, but most of the time you’re speaking to a human, and humans are smarter than we give them credit for.

FAQ 03
What do you believe about story?
We'll answer your question with a semi-rhetorical question: what do you believe about people? Contrary to popular belief, people don't crave information. They crave meaning. Story translates information into meaning. And once something is meaningful, it has the opportunity to change people — and change their feelings, thoughts, motives, actions, and ideas.

a day in the life at Epipheo

Epipheo is more than just a video production house. It is a carefully curated collection of humans dedicated to translating ideas into valuable stories worth sharing.

Born in 2009, Epipheo has created a unique process of unlocking their clients' human value and communicating it clearly to humans. Epipheo's process first discovers a client's epiphany, then wraps that epiphany in a story, and then delivers that story in a delightful, easy-to-share video.

Epiphany + Video = Epipheo.

Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, right next to the magical chocolate river, Epipheo’s cubicle-less, family-friendly office space promotes personal, human interaction among production, design, and sales.

An epiphany cannot be given. It can only be had. We believe that an epiphany, in the truest essence of the word, is more than just an a-ha moment. It’s a discovery of a truth that betters a person’s life.

FAQ 04
What’s the deal with epiphanies?
An epiphany is a turning point, a sudden moment of realization that changes the trajectory of someone's personal story: "HOLY COW, I UNDERSTAND!" But it goes beyond understanding. After an epiphany, a person does things differently. Their story has taken a turn for the better, and that epiphany moment was the pivot.
next FAQ

We get asked all the time if we make websites or infographics or billboards.

We don’t. We make videos.

Animated videos, live-action videos, motion graphics videos, stop-motion videos, videos that don't even have a genre...

The possibilities with video are enormous, and we love to push the boundaries of what is possible.

Making the video itself is actually the last step in our process, not the entire process. The video that the world sees is the product of discovery, development, and production.

FAQ 05
You make “explainer videos,” right?
Some people call them “explainer videos.” We just call them “videos.” We want our videos to do more than just explain — we want them to reveal truth and value. See, explaining something can only get you so far. If you really want to change the way that people act or think, you have to create an environment suitable for an epiphany. Explanation is great, but, without human value, it’s just a list of cool things.
next FAQ

A bullet list is only as powerful as the story it reminds you of.

We believe that every time information is shared, a story is being told. There are lots of ways to get your message out there, but if you want something to stick, you have to tell a story.

FAQ 06
How many videos have you done?
Look, we want to let you continue to ask the questions, but, really, a better question is, "How many videos are you working on at a time?" Because, see, if we type out the number of how many videos we've done to-date, then we'll be editing that number whenever we complete a video, and ain't nobody got time for that. So we'll tell you that we average 150 videos in our studio at any given moment, with about 8-12 videos finishing each week.

Every video that comes out of Epipheo is hand-crafted by human employees. On any given project, the creative team consists of Story Leads, Writers, Story Artists, Designers, Illustrators, Animators, Sound Designers, Voice Actors, and Composers. All of this is overseen and managed by a Producer and Client Services Consultant.

FAQ 07
How many employees do you have?
We have about 70 employees telling stories and taking risks. We’re a rowdy bunch who enjoy being challenged by truth, inventing stories, and sharing love. Epipheo is not a list of products or a faceless entity. We are a collection of people.
next FAQ

We embrace what we call “The Delta,” the contrast between the old story and the new story.

Example: You used to only explain what you did and how it worked. Now you communicate why it matters to the world.

FAQ 08
How much does a video cost?
Ah, THIS question truly is asked frequently. It's a really hard question to give a blanket answer to because we don't have a price list. We don't like to have a menu. We don't put a price tag on anything until we talk to you about what you need and when you need it. Let's have a conversation about it. For reals.
