I am very impressed with the final video which Joel had produced for me. The video was a very urgent project but that was not a problem at all for Joel - he completed the project ahead of the agreed schedule and he submitted a first draft (which consisted of many complex edits) within 24 hours and the final video shortly after, even though I had requested for a number of changes. It was very easy communicating with him over the elance platform as he explained everything clearly and with no jargon. On top of that, he has a good eye for design and good ear for music! I don't have much training in design, so it was a life-saver that he could provide advice on how to arrange the different elements in the video. I was also amazed that he took the initiative to recommend a suitable royalty-free music to accompany my video which really brought out a sparkle to the video presentation. He is very knowledgeable and skillful with Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Audition, and it is obvious that he has significant experience in field. It was a real pleasure working with him and I would definitely hire him for future projects. Joel has totally exceeded the specifications of my project and I highly recommend him!

I used to Joel to make an introductory video for my sports company and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!! Joel used all the examples that I gave to him to produce a video that is perfect for what I needed. Working with Joel was the best experience I have had working with a designer. He answered emails within a few hours, he created the video so quickly and kept me informed on the artistic decisions he was making as he was progressing. I felt in the loop with everything, being able to make every single decision as I needed. I would recommend anyone to work with Joel and I myself will use him for all my design work!! Great experience working with a true professional!!

I looove working with professionals, which is why as a writer/producer/director, Joel Higgins is my go-to guy for editing.
He has deep knowledge of all of his editing software tools, but he has something else that sets him apart and that is his artist’s eye.
Joel is also a very good actor (believe me, I’ve directed him) which means, he innately understands timing. What should and shouldn’t be in the visuals, in the audio. What makes the flow of content appear seamless to the viewer. What will create the exact impact you are seeking for your audience.
He’s also very business savvy. Returns phone calls and emails on a dime. If he wasn’t 6’3”, I’d put him in my pocket and bring him on every shoot so we could confab about the edit as I was shooting.

Joel Higgins is fantastic. I felt like he had as much enthusiasm for the project as I did. He is professional, creative, and easy to get along with. I couldn't be happier with the results.
