We’ve been in the biz for many years and yet found a number of new tricks in your course that will make us more money. – Jim Wheless
I was lucky to stumble upon a mentor who distills years of learning and hard-won successes that even a neophyte can put into practice. Hal Landen’s course is well worth every penny. – Steve Sakellarios
The business is doing well, thanks – working on a couple of videos for a sizeable nonprofit agency at the moment, and I’ve got to say – I think it was your help with proposal writing skills that got me the job. Effective budget & proposal-writing is a huge help, you explained it very well and the examples in your resource guide make everything crystal clear. To sum it up, Professional Video Producer taught me how to stop undercutting myself and allowed me to charge triple what I would have before the course – professionally and guilt-free! And the client is as satisfied with my work as ever. – Andrew Joyce
I couldn’t recommend Landen more highly.

Nowhere have I found more comprehensive, nuts and bolts information that clearly explains the inner workings of the business as your course did.

Thanks again Hal for the very helpful Video Producer and Letters of Agreement. I have been utilizing the information for about 6 months now. Pleased to announce that it has helped generate an additional $5000 project every month or two. Quite nice.
– Boyd. S.
I’m sending you a copy of the video I just completed using your book. My client is thrilled with the video. Your book is a Must-Read, IMHO. And, no, for those of a suspicious turn of mind, I don’t own stock in the publishing company…! I’m saying this stuff publicly because I know someone out there will find it helpful and useful. It was so helpful to me!

Thanks Hal! Yes I look through my professional video producer book daily to refer to! It’s helped so much with rates, procedures, policies, etc. It will always be a resource to help me keep living my dream of producing film, helping people tell their stories, and doing what I love to do! Cheers!
You are a highly valued source of ideas and information, and I want you to know how much I appreciate how you’ve helped me grow in both my professional skills and in my business!

Thanks for your continued emails and advice! I bought one of your introduction level course books about 5 or 6 years ago when I started my company, Image Brew. Here I am a handful of
years later, running a successful video business, and sending your emails over to my younger brother, who’s taking a similar path.
– Benjamin C. Jones
I found you on the internet over 10 years ago before I started my business. I actually purchased two of your guides and they really helped!
– Nancy Stefanovic
Thank you for your email. I’m reading the “Professional Video Producer, Study Guide”. It’s incredibly helpful!!!
Just wanted to send a note letting you know that your products were instrumental in my video production company, Moments Video, being wildly successful – thanks!
I was able to sell my business after just 6.5 years of being in business and semi-retire quite comfortably! I then was able to earn an income as the buyer’s shooter and editor for twelve months, plus I was paid to train him for six months on how to run the company successfully.
– Andy Hale
Thanks. Even though I am a long-time video/television producer, your materials are worth reading. There is always something new to learn in this industry.
This information could save you thousands of dollars.

I’m a video producer and I regularly rely on Hal for his expertise and knowledge in the sale of my videos to the public . Matter of fact, I can’t even count how many times he’s rescued me from making some pretty expensive mistakes! Thanks, Hal.!

I just signed my first client. Using your ‘Proposal’ and ‘Video Production Agreement’ templates were crucial to a successful and efficient transaction. The templates were valuable, but the ‘Explanation & Analysis’ sections were equally important. These gave me confidence and provided the necessary elements of scope, focus and professionalism. Thank you.
– Erik Anderson
Just wanted you to know that I landed my first corporate video job using the information in your package. It is for a hospital and it will be mainly for the patients when they check in to the hospital. feeling pretty good about this one. i was able to share with them how the video can be utilized on other mediums and segmented for each department that will be featured in the main video. the good news is they will get more than what they were initially looking for and I will get a long term customer that they know will look out for their best interest. 5K out of the shoot not bad!
Conversation from a video forum where someone was asking if the Producer course was worth it:
1. Yes, I bought it. I used some of his forms (agreements and estimating sheets) to win my first $6k contract. Gave me the confidence I could do this.This sort of purchase is essential to getting started. Look at it as an investment much like you would a camera or lights (which by the way you DON’T need to get started).
Go for it!
2. For what it’s worth, I followed his plan almost to the letter for sending out marketing materials, and it yielded several leads. I got the best response rate on direct mail that I ever have before or since when I followed his plan.
3. This is a GREAT Value for the money. It is honest, sound business advice and very straight forward. Very easy.
Hal, I just wanted to say that this amazing course is going to change the way we all look at video production here at Cas Videos.
