I would definitely recommend Daniel as a videographer. He taped a show I was producing and was smart enough to come to an earlier performance so he would know what he was dealing with. I had used someone else prior and they were late and not prepared. He was early and worked his magic working with each performer to ensure they were properly heard and seen. Finally, the product was fabulous and I especially liked the way he captured each performer in mid performance and used those shots as stills. Lovely!!! Fabulous job!!! You won't be disappointed.
We have worked with Siren Arts for a national touring event for several years now. And we hope to keep working with them as long as we can. They are thorough, thoughtful, punctual, professional, and ultimate team players. They have always lent a hand when needed and have never missed a beat. Our job is exponentially easier when Daniel and team are on board.
I have been working with Siren Arts for over eight years. My experience has been extremely enjoyable. Siren Arts knows how to read between the lines. They are very professional and thorough in their approach in doing business. I have a great deal of confidence in their ability to get my vision right on canvas. I love working with them and highly recommend Siren Arts.
It has been a great pleasure working with Siren Arts on numerous occasions at Pasadena Museum of History. Daniel's professionalism and congeniality always make us feel comfortable and capable, resulting in final products that are always top quality.
I've had the pleasure of working with Daniel on video productions involving the City of Pasadena, the Arroyo Seco Foundation and the Altadena Library District. Daniel is the consummate professional director/videographer/editor. He is always on time and prepared, his extensive theatre production background brings a special artistic vision to his work, and he is very collaborative and open to creative suggestions from others on his production team. I highly recommend Daniel for your video production needs!
It was a pleasure working with Daniel Henry-Smith from Siren Arts on our website. He is truly a professional who listens and caters to the needs of his clients. He was able to create a website that answers the different needs that we have for our various stakeholders. We are happy to continue working with him and Siren Arts in the maintenance of our website.
I have worked with Daniel and Davide of Siren Arts Productions on numerous projects with immense client satisfaction. They are a great team that bring professionalism, quality, technical knowledge, and artistry to every project. We have worked on video production and website creation with raving results. I engage their services with the complete assurance they will provide my clients with an outstanding final product.
Daniel Henry-Smith has been our Kenjutsuryu Karate Federation Foundation web site master since early 2008. He and his company came up with an amazing web site for our 501c3 Nonprofit foundation. When he came up with the total design and showed it to me, I thought immediately that it was perfect for all our needs. And any time I needed him to make additions and or changes to our web site, he went far and beyond my expectations. I truly believe that with his complete knowledge of what is needed to make your web site dream a reality, he is the one you need to invest in. I had someone else do our web site before I had Daniel Henry–Smith and Siren Arts Productions take over our web site and once he did he made the other company look like amateurs. You will not find anyone better that Daniel san.
Daniel, true to his Belgian roots, has a calm, measured approach to a project or a conversation about a project that reassures one he is weighing the essentials. Instead of proceeding with bluster he and his team do careful planning and have the equipment, creativity and expertise to estimate the most efficient way to bring a project to fruition. I've been pleased with the final project of several short videos Siren Arts has done for me. Working with Daniel is a pleasure; one senses his integrity and authenticity from the outset. He is a good listener, giving the client time to explain what one has in mind, rather than jumping in with dizzying ideas and distractions. (Since I teach French I enjoy speaking French with Daniel for similar reasons....his logic and enunciation are a delight to the ear, easy to follow.)
I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Daniel and Davide in association with Siren Arts for almost 10 years. I have come to know both of them to be individuals of high moral standards, professionals, ethical, committal, knowledgeable, visionary, loyal, dedicated and providing the utmost highest quality of professional service. During the past 10 years Siren Arts has handled several of my concerts, TV shows and personal events in an excellent manner with total satisfaction. I recommend with high degree of confidence Daniel & Siren Arts.
I was referred to Daniel by someone whose website I admired. Daniel also designed my logo, which I get compliments on frequently. I love working with him, despite having never met face-to-face. Daniel is a great artist and used his skills to project exactly what I wanted. His suggestions in development made for a beautiful site.
J'ai eu la chance de travailler à plusieurs reprises avec Daniel Henry dans le cadre du théâtre et du cinéma. Ces expériences m'ont comblée tant au niveau de l'organisation du travail, qu'au niveau de l'exigence demandée, totalement fondée ! qu'au niveau du résultat final. Ce que j'apprécie le plus chez ce metteur en scène, c'est qu'il a une idée bien précise de ce qu'il veut et qu'il nous laisse carte blanche pour arriver à la concrétiser. Du coup, les différents métiers gravitants autour de ses spectacles sont valorisés. Ils ne sont plus seulement des exécutants mais bel et bien des créateurs ! Désormais, je n'attends qu'une chose... c'est qu'il daigne reprendre l'avion pour partager, à nouveau, un de ses univers avec nous... les petits belges !
At the Black Los Angeles County Client Coalition (BLACCC Inc.), we always appreciated Siren Arts Productions hard work on our behalf and felt they made solid contributions filming our events. Seriously, we all wish them the very best of success. Self employment takes no small amount of courage, but those who are good at what they do are nearly always rewarded. We have every reason to believe that their star will climb even higher to make their venture a success. Siren Arts, thanks again for your help. I sincerely appreciate your support.
Many web designers can do a good set-up job, but not many can truthfully claim that they will immediately respond and fix website issues as they arise, as inevitably they do. Daniel (Siren Arts) is that guy! I have worked with Daniel and his company for many years and find him to be responsive, available and extremely knowledgeable in the forever changing world of web design. He is there for us, routinely checking that our website is functional and smooth, as well as protecting us from potential problems. I have been frustrated in the past with other website design/support companies; another reason why I can recommend Daniel so highly.
Daniel has done exquisite work for me in translating into French analytical works I have written on Richard Wagner's works. He goes to lengths in crafting the meanings I express so they make logical sense to a French audience. His work is so good that I often go back to revise my work in English.
I have had the opportunity to work with Siren Arts on a number of occasions. Whether it was filming an intimate dance concert, or a large music class, they have been responsive, creative and always flexible. The quality of the artistry is unrivaled. I would highly recommend Daniel and Davide to any of my colleagues who need top notch-professional filming/digital media content.
For approximately one year I hosted an interview program on a local cable access channel with Daniel as director. Siren Arts constructed a great looking set and provided camera operation, direction, and editing. All was done with great professionalism and a fine regard for the subject of the programs and the guests interviewed. I was very impressed with their skill with still and video roll-ins and with the design of the show’s opening montage and music. One show was particularly challenging because three guests and I participated in a Jeopardy-like quiz activity. The staging and editing were done very successfully. The show was fun to do and cable channel viewers spoke highly of it.
I cannot say enough good things about Daniel and Siren Arts Productions! Their knowledge, skill, and level of expertise have helped my business flourish. In the 10 years that I have utilized their services, Siren Arts has always gone above and beyond what I've asked of them. Daniel and Siren Arts have provided thoughtful ideas and suggestions that have just made the properties we produce even better. They are absolute professionals with positive, "can-do" attitudes who always deliver on time and on budget. I highly recommend Siren Arts for any media production or service.
I worked with Siren Arts both in my capacity working for a nonprofit and then personally on my own web site because it was such a pleasure working with him at my job. Daniel has the wonderful combination of technical expertise and aesthetic sensibility. He is responsive and, important to a technically challenged client, very patient and good about explaining things in lay terms. He does a fabulous job and deliverables are always on time and within budget. I highly recommend Siren Arts!
I have worked with Siren Arts on a few projects, but my favorite project was a promotional video that they helped me produce. They listened to my description of what I envisioned, took the photos and music that I gave them, and made a very nice video that we used on our website. Siren Arts also revamped that website for us! Thanks Siren Arts!
Daniel is the kind of media professional you look for when you want a good story told in an exciting and highly efficient way. When Daniel came to film a summer program for families at the Pasadena Museum of History, initially I was concerned that cameras and equipment would cause a big distraction to the program. I was wrong. The level of professionalism used in their tight schedule of filming was awesome. They caught the many aspects of the hour and a half program, managed to get some great sound-bites from staff and performance artist, and caught the kids actively engaged in the activities of the day, blithely ignoring the two man crew filming them. And the edited piece was up on the internet in just a couple of days. They work fast!
