Jenni Nering, Executive Director So Cal BNI

I have had the great pleasure of working with Jonathan Jenkins on a few different projects. The first project was a video that I needed done very quickly and only gave him a very short amount of time to get it done. Without even blinking an eye Jonathan was on it. He went out and shot all of the footage, made the edits and produced a great video that we found to be very valuable. Throughout the entire process he was a great pleasure to work with. He is a true professional and he listens to what the customer wants.

Almost one year after working with Jonathan the first time we got to work with him again. Now, this second project was very unique in the way it was set up, but Jonathan was up for the challenge and for what may have appeared to be a daunting task for some…not for Jonathan. Jonathan met every deadline, he once again produced great products and he kept a great working attitude throughout the process.
Jonathan is the type of professional that would go to great lengths to make sure that his final product is exactly what the client envisioned. I have enjoyed getting to know Jonathan as a production specialist and I would without any hesitation refer him to businesses, organizations, etc that are looking for a great person to handle their video needs.
Thank you Jonathan for making SoCal BNI look good and thank you for going above and beyond! I am proud know you and to have you on our Team. Thank you for all that you have done…You are terrific!!!

Joan Weisman – Toastmasters

Shortly after joining Coastmasters, Jonathan saw a need. The Dana Point Coastmasters website was out of date and impossible to find through a normal search. Jonathan volunteered his time and expertise, and with great energy turned the sorry old website into a vibrant, useful nexus. Then, something amazing happened.

On a monthly basis, Jonathan Jenkins volunteered his time and equipment to film the club speeches at our morning Toastmasters meeting. Each month, Jonathan would produce the videos and get them up on YouTube and on our website. The results have been spectacular.
As club President, I am set up to receive email and phone inquiries from people who find us by searching for Toastmasters and clicking on our website. About 8 months after Jonathan took over the website and SEO optimization for the club, I went from receiving 1 inquiry a month to 1 – 7 a week. Our club now has close to 40 members, with regular attendance between 20 and 25 people. Jonathan is a remarkable talent. He combines creative ability with technical expertise and he gets it done. I am amazed at what he has given to the club.

I have worked with PPS on several projects in which they converted home videos into something extraordinary. PPS takes the raw footage (and not done too well) and creates a real work of art through their editing, music background, and organizing all the material. If you want to take important memories captured on video and transform them into something wonderful, I highly recommend PPS.
Thanks again!

Linda Walker-Head of Human Resources-Parker Hannifin (retired) Re: Production of the 60th Wedding Anniversary film for the Don & Elaine Walker Family Documentary

Hi Jonathan,
It was great seeing you and meeting Matt on Friday. You both were so incredible to drive down and capture Dad and Mom’s special 60yh wedding celebration. Thank you for being so flexible and allowing us to drag you both around the property and take so many photos. And you did a phenomenal job on the interview location, coordination and shoot… Wow, what a wonderful memory we all will have with this video.
You absolutely did a fantastic job. I’ve sat through editing before for days and nights and can’t imagine how many hours you have put in selecting footage from two video cameras and a still camera. Wow, you are amazing !!!
This project that you have done will be so appreciated and treasured by the entire family. And you are right, make sure you have a kleenex !! : – )
Many Thanks,
Linda Walker

Terry Rifkin, President, 5th Marine Support Group

As Director of Support and Outreach for the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, I hoped to create a marketing video that could convey not just the mission of our Military Support Organization, but also put some heart into it. Little did I realize the full capabilities of the gentleman that we hired for the job, Jonathan Jenkins. Though he was referred by a trusted community friend, I was so pleased to see the finished product reflecting not just Mr. Jenkin’s professionalism, but how he was able to capture a sentiment that was so powerful, that by the end, it truly had me in tears. Exactly what I had hoped for!
It was important to me to reflect the service and sacrifice of our Marines, Sailors, and families both while deployed and at home. I wanted the video to demonstrate the partnership between the Regiment and also the Adoptive City of Dana Point. I wanted our mission to be clear and also our heartstrings to be pulled. Mr. Jenkins did all that and more.
A self-admitted perfectionist, I asked a lot of Mr. Jenkins with many re-takes and additions. He was patient and thankfully a perfectionist himself. It had to be right; not just to please the customer, but also to have it the way he would be proud of it himself. Mr. Jenkins put in tireless efforts doing interviews of City Officials and Marine Corps personnel. He attended deployments, welcome home barbeques, car washes, and a myriad of activities to get the footage that would convey the message we hoped for. Whatever it took, he performed with a smile each time.
The end result was nothing short of fabulous! Not only does it chronicle the mission of our Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, but it also is a message to the community about how to “give back” to our Marines, Sailors, and families who have done so much to preserve the rights and freedoms that we, as Americans, enjoy.
I would highly recommend Mr. Jenkins to anyone and I definitely plan to retain him again for future projects.
Semper Fidelis

Tarn Gucci – Former Manager Cheryl Burke Dance Studio

I have used Performance Production Services to film two special occasions and the Cheryl Burke Dance Studio in Laguna Niguel. The first one was to promote our weekly Friday Night Dance Event and the second one was to celebrate our 1st Year Anniversary. At both occasions Cheryl Burke from Dancing With The Stars was in attendance. I must say that the entire experience of working with Jonathan from Pre-Production, Filming to Post Production was very easy and highly professional. The Cheryl Burke studio would definitely consider using his services again. Thank you very much.

Pete Hammer-Chairman-Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group Re: Documentary of the Creation, Delivery and Installation of the Operation Enduring Freedom Monument at Camp Pendleton, Ca

Dear Jonathan,
Congratulations to you and all who played a part in editing the final version of the video. Exceptionally Well Done.
The Video, for me, past a really true test, much the same as a book you can’t put down. I had very little time when I set out to view the clip, but could not stop watching it until the very end. Riveting and Compelling might be the appropriate words.
Great Job and Good Luck with the various Film Festivals. It will be interesting to see the number of hits you get on FB, UT, and Twitter. A donation here and there wouldn’t hurt either.
