TESTIMONIALS

Dear Ben, Bravo!!!
 
I have to say we felt like superstars today.
 
Thank you for your unending dedication, love and passion.   
That's truly what greatness is made of. I'm so proud to be a part of this DOVE campaign.
 
I have personally learned so much in the process - not just about 3D but about trust and collaboration.

Hi Ben,  
 
Thank you from the bottom of my toes for your great work directing the ASAHI beer campaign!  
I really had a great time these pasts few weeks, especially since you landed here. 
 We're already planning how to snag the next Asahi job, which could be as early as this summer.   
Again, thanks for a great job and looking forward to the next one.

Hello, Ben.   
 
Just wanted you to know our BUCHANAN´S Whiskey Spots are doing great in sales!       
Many people told me the spots look amazing and asked me who the director was, 
so I know we will be shooting again in no time.   We definitely have to get together soon!       
 
Abrazo grande y gracias por la experiencia.

Dear Ben,
 
After the work, we did together on HEINEKEN and BOCHKAREV our "collaborative work" (as you say) 
has been able to move the Heineken brand to higher level.  The results clearly display a very high degree of quality and passion. 
 
I'm more than pleased with that (and I am not the only one here in Russia and in Amsterdam). 
Just would like to tell you that working with a person like you is pure pleasure. 
 
To be honest, I do not know what more to say.  I wish you the very best. 
I am sure that we will see each other again.  
 
Best regards,

Ben Dolphin was amazing in a truly demanding situation.
 
It was a pleasure watching him work with Fizz City's "A" team producers and crew to go above and beyond 
for the COCA-COLA client. I know they will be very happy with results of our three days of shooting.  
Thanks to Ben, a true gentleman, and you for making it all happen on short notice.

To Whom it may concern,
 
Not often am I willing or able to share my recommendations for a Director and Production Company with whom I work 
as easily as I bring Ben Dolphin and Ben Dolphin Productions to your attention. Ben is a problem solver and easy to work with.  
I know I can count on him to do his homework and be inspired on the set. 
 
Whether it is a foreign location on the beach with “Beauty Talent” conducting ”Real People” interviews or shooting TABLE TOP 
and Special Effects shots, he delivers for me fully.  
 
Truth is he really listens and I know he’s heard my needs and will support my creative efforts to come through for my client.
 
I trust his listening translates to providing me with more than the storyboard simply implies, but what I want to provide and create
for the BRAND.Not only does Ben give me what I want, his production team is reliable and resourceful, 
able to come through on large and small jobs alike. 
 
I fully recommend you avail yourself of his services while you can afford him…he is special, very hands on and no prima donna.  Ben has shot and directed several spots with me now over several years and we continue to work together. I know I can count on him to provide cutting edge creative and production and in today’s market that’s no easy feat.

Dear Ben,  Fernando, our DOVE Client, and the team were in awe of your work.  It's the first time we've presented to the client and the compliments have not been followed with "but..."   
 
Thank you for blowing them away, making our lives easier and pouring your heart and soul into this project.    
They are genuinely really proud of this work.

Thank you so much for everything you've done to help this agency win new business. Today our NICORETTE Minis Shoot ran brilliantly. Ben, you are a true master of your craft.  
 
I looked at an early WIP at the agency this afternoon...with just the morning talent. It's going to be fantastic!  
Thanks again for everything! And, that's a fantastic stage that we will utilize for future projects.  
You're a Prince!

I was so pleased to meet you and work together with you for our Client.  
 
Not only your director's view, but especially your choreographic experience helped us very much to make our SARMAT commercial ,
represent the BRAND CREDO 'full of freedom'.  
I hope we'll have a great number of incredible projects together in the future.
