“Mark understood and interpreted the brief really quickly, helped us to deliver the video on time and, very importantly, to budget.”

Anna-Chantal Badjie, Manager, Development & Communications, A&CR, BBC

“PILnet hired CreationVideo to live stream our 2014 European Pro Bono Forum in London. We’re an international NGO, however we were coordinating this project from New York City and were impressed by Mark’s responsiveness at the enquiry stage and found him helpful and knowledgeable throughout the project. The quality of the live stream was excellent and the cost was extremely competitive. If you’re seeking a London live streaming company, I thoroughly recommend CreationVideo – a great service.”
