Sunset Presents (2017/2018 Season)

“I worked with Mike and Jules of House of 8 Media for the first time several weeks ago, as they created a video for one of Sunset Center’s events. The results were beautiful, professional, and had real wow factor. Our patrons were blown away by the film, which showcased our 2017-2018 performance season lineup. In addition, House of 8 was lovely to work with—friendly and warm, and highly effective in communication, workflow, and time management. I would recommend their services in a heartbeat. 5 Stars!”
