"I've been a client of Substance for several years now and have used them for a variety of complex and highly visible projects. Our most recent was an animated video introducing our new software platform designed for colleges and universities to grant credit to our vets for their military training. At a recent statewide conference, the highlight of my presentation was an animated and narrated video that Substance produced for us. The quality, creativity, and dynamism of video was world-class and produced that coveted Wow! response from the audience--a response we've come to expect whenever we work with Substance. Love you guys!"

"I am so glad I found Substance! Every member of the team is incredibly talented and creative. I completely trust them and often rely on them to help me craft the message and story that I want to tell through video. The quality of their work sets them apart from all other agencies, and they have helped my institutions win awards from statewide and national organizations. I am always thrilled with the final product and look forward to working with Substance for years to come. "

"We were tasked with marketing our ABA-approved paralegal studies program. As law professors, we were not the most versed in marketing. We came to Substance with general ideas. They took the ball and ran with it. The final product was much better than we even envisioned. They were very professional and provided great, prompt communication. The day of the shoot, all of the crew was very professional efficient. They made the process fun and really simple. I can't rave enough about the beautiful videos that highlight our amazing program. Thank you Substance"

Nic McGrue
El Camino College

"I highly recommend Substance to any university looking to create video content that highlights their institution and the success of their alumni. They can craft a story through their art hat visually beautiful. The team is professional, creative and detail oriented. "
