I am delighted to have this opportunity to recommend Phantom Productions for a full range of media and web services.   I have had the pleasure to work with owner, Martin Theophilus, on two different projects over the past 15 years. Overall we are very pleased with the creativity and quality of services that we have received. 

Family to Family Network initially contacted Phantom Productions to help with the creation & development of our website ( many years ago.  We contacted them due to their experience and knowledge of the disability community.  When we were asked to create a new website to provide accurate & consistent information on the special education process – Phantom was our first choice.  Martin was quick to offer suggestions and help us plan the new site. 

Phantom Production has provided us with web design and hosting services for the Texas Project FIRST website for the last 10 years, as well as technical support and hosting for our Family to Family website.  Both projects are dynamic, responsive websites that require frequent updates, and Martin always responds swiftly to our requests, whether to make changes or solve problems.   As a nonprofit, we also appreciate that Martin has gone “beyond the call” to connect us with various web data collection tools for grant reporting purposes.  Family to Family Network also used Phantom Productions for video work related to some other projects.  He has provided media services for the disability community for more than two decades, and this gives him a unique understanding of our audience that reflects in the quality of his work.

On the scale of satisfaction, we award Phantom Productions a full five stars!
Best regards,
Mary Jane Williams, Executive Director, Family to Family Network

Thanks for the memories

Dear Martin and Chris,

I want to thank you for all your help over the past fourteen years with developing and maintaining EveryChild's website and video materials. I have appreciated your steady hand behind the curtain keeping the website wheels turning. I have especially appreciated how easily you were able to incorporate your technology insights to help us craft videos that tell our story. We were able to focus on the message while you focused on the technical aspects –from lighting to audio to calming nervous subjects to editing. Together we were able to co-edit to create stories which are truly compelling and have changed the lives of children with disabilities and their families.

Nancy Rosenau, Retired Executive Director of EveryChild,Inc.

Penny Seay training in Dallas for HHSC video production by Phantom Productions, Inc. for the Texas Center for Disability StudiesIn reviewing multimedia companies in Austin, Phantom Productions, Inc. is the only company I could identify that has any focus on working with people with disabilities and their families. I have looked at over 10 media production companies and none have any expertise in working with individuals with disabilities and their families.

In the last year, Phantom Productions, Inc. developed a video with people with intellectual disabilities discussing advocacy skills with other self-advocates, created a short video on using person first language with people with intellectual disabilities, filmed person centered thinking training and created separate training modules covering the content, and filmed an interview between a person with an intellectual disability and a person centered thinking trainer to use in training activities. Phantom Productions, Inc. has contracts with the Texas Education Agency Texas Project First and EveryChild Texas, both projects working specifically with children with disabilities and their families. No other company in central Texas that I have found has any experience with this type of work.

Phantom Productions, Inc. is integral to our program at this point, having contracted with us via OSP for over 10 years. The principals in the company have developed significant expertise in working with people with disabilities and their families and have an understanding of the critical supports needed to develop media with people with disabilities. These skills are not held by all multimedia production companies, and would require significant time to cultivate with another company, causing us to fall behind on deadlines identified in our grant.

Everyone loved the videos - they laughed and cried.  Doesn't get much better than that. banker was so lifted by the foundation video he has committed a legacy gift of $100,000 on the spot!  Amazing.   Thank you for your patience, for your creativity, for your knitting, for your story telling. You are indeed a magician.

A note of thanks and appreciation for your production on the time lapsed balloon launch for our satellite broadcast and subsequent CD for the NASA series of programs on aviation for US middle schools. In all respects - the rapid turnaround; your special efforts to shoot in the right conditions (despite several poor weather attempts and it being a holiday); and your continued patience and good humor - your work has not just been professional, but gratifyingly personal "next time."
