Project: College Graduation DVD Montage
”Your work was the true center of our family graduation celebration.  Everyone gathered around to watch and listen to how wonderfully you paired the music with the photos of Abbey.  There were plenty of tears and lots of laughter along with comments from family and friends about how amazing the DVD turned out.  Thank you for working with me on this gift for Abbey. Instead of a big photo album of her family, high school and college friends, she can take this one DVD to New York and have all these important memories played back to her in 11 minutes!
    --Colleen C., St. Paul, MN

Project: Funeral Montage
”It has been nearly a year since you completed the memorial montage of my best friend.  I was emotionally unable to thank you properly at the time.  Today is the anniversary of her death.  The loss is still as great but I smile more than cry when I look at the montage you completed for me.

I wanted to say thank you and let you know that I am grateful to you for assisting me in my hour of need.  I knew this was the last gift I could give to my best friend, but I was not sure that I was up to it.  You completed a montage which was a wonderful reflection of her life.  I could not have said goodbye properly without you.  The memorial service was beautiful.  All who attended commented on how wonderful it was to see Margo one last time in the memorial montage.”

Working with Toes Productions exceeded any expectation I could have had. Andrea was so pleasant about my daughter's numerous changes (even though I wanted to ring her neck!) and had everything done in plenty of time even with all the changes. But, the best part was watching all the faces at our event as friends and family recognized themselves with oooh's and aaah's... everyone was engaged every second of the montage and with all the compliments I got afterwards, it was priceless... and, needless to say, worth every penny (and more)!”

    --Dana M., Excelsior, MN

Project: a school play DVD + a church play DVD

“I have had Toes Productions do the post-production for two videos: one for school and one for a church musical.  We had our parents do the filming, but nobody had the time to edit and copy it into a DVD.  Toes Productions did an amazing job at putting together the mixed up material I gave her - tapes from two cameras, photos, and music - and making a professional, beautiful DVD.  Great work!”

    --Rene M., St. Paul, MN

    --Anni D., St. Louis Park, MN

Project: a montage of Grandma’s life

“Working with Toes Productions was so easy!  It seemed like you were very tuned in to what we wanted and your intuitive nature created something that we loved all the way through!  Toes was able to pick up on what we were trying to achieve – even though we didn’t quite know yet what we wanted!  Being able to be a part of the process from start to finish was huge for me.  Some of the songs that were chosen at first and then hearing them and seeing them with the photos – turned out not being the right songs at all.  But after listening to your input as well as being able to view the work in progress – we were able to pick out the most perfect songs! 

Nothing compares to the moment that we gave the dvd to our Grandmother over our Christmas Holiday.  Words cannot describe her emotions that she went through watching images from her past while listening to her favorite songs.  This DVD will be a treasure for our family for years to come!  Thank you!”

    --Jen R., St. Paul, MN

Project: a 40th birthday montage

“I can't put into words how wonderful the DVD was received.  We had 35 of my husband's family and friends at our home for a birthday celebration for him and at the end of the evening I told everyone to sit down for his birthday present.  I don't think there was a dry eye in the house.  Thank you so much for helping me give my husband such a meaningful gift.  He is a very wonderful and sensitive man. He used up a lot of kleenex that night; it meant the world to him.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

    --Kathy T., St. Paul, MN

Project: an 80th birthday montage

“Andrea, is a phenomenal artist.  I gave her quite a number of pictures and described my vision for the photo montages. The montage was a gift to my father for his 80th birthday.  She took my vision and created an extremely sensitive, moving piece of art that my father and family will always treasure.  I truly believe her ability to listen and willingness to be flexible is the key to her producing a quality body of work.  Andrea, thank you for capturing my ideas and creating a photo montage that made my father’s 80th birthday very special.”

    --Tracene M., St. Paul, MN

Project: a wedding video and photo scrapbook

“Andrea was absolutely wonderful to work with, personally and professionally. She always provided options and was open to suggestions. What she created was a visually beautiful and memorable digital scrapbook that we were able to share with our family. They were a great Christmas gift to give to our family members.”

    --Kim D., Minneapolis, MN

Project: a rehearsal dinner + reception DVD montage

“I was looking to have some pictures put together into a slideshow for my upcoming wedding. I found Toes Productions on Craig's List. I couldn't believe how quickly Andrea was able to scan all of the pictures and put them together in a way that looked extremely professional. She had a first draft ready within three days of me getting her the pictures and was more than willing to make adjustments as I found additional pictures. She was also able to find and download the music that we had chosen. My future husband and I couldn't be happier with how the DVD turned out and have already watched it numerous times.  I would recommend Toes Productions to anyone looking to have a very creative and professional looking slideshow for any occasion. Thanks again Andrea!! We can't wait to share this with our friends and family!”

    --Molly S., Minneapolis, MN

Project: a rehearsal dinner + reception DVD montage

“The DVD turned out better than we could have hoped for and everyone loved it so much at the groom's dinner that we decided to show it at the wedding reception.  Working with you was an absolute pleasure.  Not only were you patient through fourteen rounds of changes, but you added an artistic aspect that I never imagined was possible.  Our guests loved the DVD so much that we got many questions about who had made it.  I cannot thank you enough for breathing artistic life into a bunch of old photos.  I will recommend you to anyone that needs a slideshow.  It was an honor to work with you.”

    --Tori M., Minneapolis, MN

Project: a 40th wedding anniversary DVD

“Andrea from Toes Productions did a DVD Scrapbook for my parents 40th Anniversary Party.  She was a gem to work with and the DVD turned out just beautiful.  It made our day extra special and my parents were so happy to have such a wonderful keep-sake of their photos.

Andrea made this project so easy from start to finish.  She was so flexible with any ideas that I had.  If I didn't have any ideas her creativity and sense of what I needed was perfect.  Everything was so accessible with her uploading each process online for me to view.  She made it so easy to do with NO stress!

My experience with Andrea was spectacular and I would and will reccommend her to anyone.  Thanks Andrea for making my parent's day extra special!!"

Thanks Toes Productions!”

    --Dan W., Chicago, IL

“We had Toes Productions produce a DVD montage for our rehearsal dinner, and it was exactly what we were hoping for.  They bent over backwards to make the process as easy as possible.  Not only that, the quality of the montage was absolutely incredible.  I could not imagine a better experience than working with Toes Productions.  Thanks, Andrea; you knocked this one out of the park and certainly added to a wonderful wedding weekend!”

     --Brad B., Chicago, IL

Project: a graduation photo montage

“Our daughter was graduating from High School and the scrapbook thing just did not happen.  I had previously had a DVD made for an older son that was fine but not great so I was looking for another avenue.  I found Andrea and she made the process very easy and the DVD from baby to young woman was a perfect way to celebrate a high school graduation. Andrea did a wonderful job  to convey a flow and transitions with music and themes.  I was able to work with the product over the Internet till we were both happy with the finished product with music and length.  At that very busy time of year it was great to have someone able to put it together such a quality product with such ease for me. Now we have a DVD that will be a keepsake of this special milestone  in our daughters life.”

   --Linda S., Edina, MN

Project: a 500 photo wedding montage + scrapbook

“We loved working with Andrea to help create our ‘dream’ DVD of our wedding photos and video.  Andrea provided the highest quality of creativity and professionalism from beginning to end.  Despite our urgency to have the DVD produced within 3 weeks, Andrea assured us that this could happen through her actions and dependable follow through.  We had so much fun throughout the process because Andrea listened to our wishes and asked great questions to find out more about us.  When my husband and I watched the wedding DVD for the first time, we were amazed at how personal, beautiful and perfect the DVD was that we both could not help but shed tears of joy.  Andrea has a true gift of creating priceless keepsakes!”

     --Tim and Christine K., Temecula, CA

Project: a photo montage tribute for her mother

“When I first sat down at my computer to view the DVD Andrea completed for my family, the tears began to flow.  Andrea's amazing ability to bring together 80 years worth of pictures with creativity, the right music, and meaningful text was obvious from the beginning to the end.  Working with Andrea was a joy; she listened to my ideas, added her suggestions, and completed the finished project very quickly and professionally.

Project: a baby montage + adoption DVD Scrapbook

“We worked on two special DVD projects with Andrea. The first was one that we sent to our infant son who was awaiting adoption in Taiwan. It was a slideshow of pictures and a video greeting made with a baby in mind. When we met our son’s foster mother she talked about the DVD with tears in her eyes. She was very touched by the video and said it made her feel assured that lil’ Cheng-En would be going to a good family in America.

The second project was more ambitious and just as special. After our trip to Taiwan we returned as new parents with lots of video and pictures but no time. Andrea took all our trip footage and made a wonderful DVD with chapters, a slide show, and video highlights set to music.

We have told the story of our trip to Taiwan and shown our DVD several times to large groups. People are so impressed with the professional quality. Andrea is creative and very efficient. She makes smart decisions with editing and organizing content. She has great suggestions and always strives to get it right. She is excellent to work with whether you're hands on like me, and want to give lots of feedback, or if you just want to trust your project to a pro. She is great to work with and we definitely will use her service again.”

    --Matt D., Chicago, IL

Project: a rehearsal dinner photo montage

“The DVD was great - very professional, just the right spacing and length.  The guests loved it.  Those who had seen it at the rehearsal dinner asked to see it again at the wedding, so we showed it again!  And it’s a wonderful keepsake for the bride and groom.”

      --Jeanne K., Chanhassen, MN

Project: a church Christmas program scrapbook

“Andrea is a true professional with a heart of gold.  Not only are her gifts evident in the quality of the DVDs, but her spirit of love and generosity shine through.  These DVDs are like a time capsule for generation upon generation to enjoy.”

Project: middle school spring play DVDs

“Andrea does a very thorough job from beginning to end!  She is very easy to work with, is very professional, and puts many extra hours into every project to make sure the job is done right!  Each DVD that she has done for me is different and more creative than the last one.  I appreciate her promptness, her attention to detail, and her willingness to work with you on any project.  Andrea is a gem!”

       --Jenny E.,  Minnetonka Middle School West, Excelsior, MN

Project: family DVD scrapbooks

“I am a working mother of four.  I used to do Creative Memories scrapbooks, but life has gotten too busy.  I still love to take photos and videos, but now I just have Toes create unique DVD scrapbooks of our family memories.  Our kids love them, and our faraway relatives appreciate each and every episode.”
