What Our Clients Say About Us
We contracted Lance Dreesen and Giant Leap to create a special project for Carroll EMC, a 30 minute piece on energy efficiency. Not only did Lance keep the project running on schedule and within budget, he also kept the cast and crew engaged and upbeat through the production. The project is turning out great and exceeding our expectations, and we are planning on contracting Giant Leap again soon to produce a documentary about the history of our electric cooperative. I highly recommend Lance and Giant Leap!

I had the pleasure to work with Lance Dreesen during the marketing of the feature film “The Way Home.” Lance not only was the producer/writer/director of the film, but he was hired by my company, and the film’s distributor, Lionsgate, to produce two featurettes for the DVD release. He turned what could have been a standard “behind-the-scenes” promotional piece into a gripping documentary about the true-life story the film is based on. The project became a stand-alone that was every bit as heart-warming and inspiring as the feature itself.
Mr. Dreesen handled all aspects of the production of the feaurettes: writing, producing, filming, editing, post and delivery. He did it all quickly and on time, and the final project was much more than what we expected. Best of all, he is easy to work with – a person who brings great ideas to the table but is open and willing to listen to, and incorporate, the ideas of others.
I recommend him without reservation. I guarantee you will be very pleased if you have the pleasure to have him produce a project for your company.

At the beginning of this year we hired Giant Leap to provide content for a website we were developing for a new organization, The Friends of Bobby Jones. In the course of his work for us, Lance wrote the scripts and produced five videos (each 3-5 minutes in length) for the website. I must add that when I say “produced” it is a bit of an understatement. Lance was also the director and cinematographer. On each of our shoot days he ran an efficient and friendly set – going the extra mile to get everything we needed, and then some. He was also great at putting our on- screen talent, all of whom untrained at reading from a teleprompter, at ease – getting heart-felt “performances” from them.
We also used Lance to provide the written copy for the entire website, as well as supervising all visual content, including archival photos and footage. Lance frequently went “above and beyond,” researching the subject matter and digging deep to find the best material to illustrate each facet of our subject, golfer Bobby Jones. Lance has a great talent for taking complex, dense material, and communicating it in a clear and compelling way, and was a great asset in helping bring Bobby’s story to life. Plus, despite our very tight deadline on the project, he delivered everything on time.
In short, Lance is creative, collaborative, reliable and will go the extra mile to give you everything you need and more. Once again, I highly recommend him and his company.
