Reflections on Creating The Most Precious Wedding Gift: “I actually got to learn things about my family history that I didn’t know about when I contacted my siblings for facts and photos. It actually brought us together since we live apart from each other. Many people have old photos that just sit in a box but the work you do brings them alive. It meant a lot to me to put the project together. I felt I was honoring my parents who I miss… Can’t thank you enough. I would love to stay in touch – I’m a little sad that we’ve finished because I’ve really enjoyed working with you.” –Judy H.
“SHE LOVES IT! Your ‘Found Memories‘ video is a HUGE hit with Mom! I lost count of how many times she viewed it over the weekend. Lots of laughs. No sorrow.” –Matt Baier
“The photo montage video was an absolute HIT!! Everyone loved it and the Bride and Groom were so truly touched and surprised. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room! Thank you Arline for making the night such a success and for bringing the photos to life with the beautiful video.
Also, thank you for making the video creation process so seamless and easy! You kept me involved and informed during the entire process, even with us being long-distance. I also appreciated your creative ideas and added touches (like re-creating the wedding invitation and adding it to the beginning of the video – genius!). Thank you again for creating a memory that will last a lifetime. I look forward to working with you again!” – Margot Cornell
“You are what I remember most about planning my daughter’s bat mitzvah and I often think you were sent by my mother to help me with it. Our montage creation really made it as if she was with us for those moments and I know I told you afterward, but it bears repeating, that it made my sisters and Dad so very happy! I wish you could have seen their faces.” –Pamela D.
“The Poster and the DVD were a smashing success! The DVD truly moved Mark (I am not the only one who cried at the end!) and sparked a lot of happy memories for the guests. Your work is truly amazing.

I chose to work with Arline because I knew how dedicated and caring she would be as I went through photo after photo from my past.

The editing and selection of photographs is most effective throughout and they enhance the mini documentary while drawing you in and taking you on a wonderful adventure. I was very impressed and deeply moved I watched it several times. I loved it and now can’t wait to see his play A PLAY ON WORDS. Hats off to the videographer Arline Melzer for doing such an amazing job”. – Van Dirk Fisher, Founder & Artistic Director, Riant Theatre & Producer of the Strawberry One-Act Festival
“Arline was recommended to us to produce a series of videos for use in marketing our upcoming book, “The Purpose Is Profit.” From the time we first engaged with Arline, all the way through post-production, she was a consummate professional. Arline gave us input on our scripts, brought in and managed an excellent crew, and later worked with us to edit and finalize our videos for posting to YouTube. We sincerely appreciated her diligence, knowledge, responsiveness, and skill.” –Ed McLaughlin and Wyn Lydecker, co-authors of“The Purpose Is Profit” and “The Startup Roadmap”
“I would like to commend Arline Melzer for her extremely professional video production. I contacted Picture Perfections to make a video for my website and Arline helped me plan video marketing for my business… Arline made many script suggestions to enhance the effectiveness of the videos, and created finished products that I am proud of. Her practical ideas to increase the quality and impact of the videos for marketing my business, and her easy manner in helping me to record the videos in a relaxed style were most appreciated. ” –Ronny Kaplan, Computer Training Solutions
“Arline helped me script 3 videos for my business, produced the videos which are now posted on YouTube and soon to be linked to my website.

Maryann Lehmann, D.D.S.
“I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism, skill, and emotional involvement in the unique editing project I gave you. Converting 11 silent movies to vibrant, entertaining works of art were a test of your editorial skills and imagination. My audiences have reveled in their content and originality, but in large part because you transformed them from the pedestrian to the professional. I was especially impressed with your diligence in seeking out the right sounds for the various scenes. You could have easily let me run with what I had found on my own but you offered some new sound themes that brought the project to an elevated level. You made the project your own and refined it until we fulfilled our collective expectations… or as you would put it… until we achieved Picture Perfection.
I look forward to working with you again since I have three new films under consideration.” –Al Repicci, Greenwich, CT

I will definitely use Picture Perfections again.” –Gay Gasser, Mirth in a Box
