Owner, Broker at Tom Smolinski Realty


I approached Scott with a brief idea for a commercial. He quickly filled in the blanks and twisted it to look more professional and better than I could have imagined.


 He was able to take just an idea, create an entire 30 second commercial with all of the lines and scenes in it. He then coached someone without any film experience (me) and shot a very cool commercial and was even able to make ME look good!


 On top of that, he shot and produced the commercial in a very short amount of time…he was great to work with and the product was great. But most importantly, he was able to do it within my time frame and budget!


 I will not hesitate to use him in the future, and I recommend him to everyone looking to shoot anything!


 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Molly Schief, MM

Organizational Development Specialist at Perrigo, Vocalist with Eddie and the Breakers


"Scott is a terrific resource for both audio and video production. He is a rare combination of intelligence, creativity and a terrific personality. He's prepared, set up and ready to work when you arrive, and the process itself is very smooth. I love to sing, but frankly I hate recording. Scott makes the recording process easy, quick and enjoyable. The results were outstanding. em4music has worked with Scott several times in the past, and we look forward to working with him again.
