Moonshine Agency Reviews
“ In 2018, Moonshine Agency competed for and won a request for proposals for a film project aligned with UICC’s advocacy campaign, Treatment for All. Within a matter of months, Mike and his team helped us storyboard, film and produce powerful films about promoting greater equity in access to cancer services around the world. Every detail was well planned, and turned what could have been a daunting, time consuming project into an exciting opportunity to showcase our work and the work of our members in new, cinematic ways. In addition to providing us with quality films to highlight our advocacy efforts, Mike and his team also brought the limelight to the people we work with, and gave them a platform to elevate their work and their voices. All who participated in the film had a great experience, and were eager to share the film through their own channels, whether it be in Uganda, Mexico, Switzerland or Indonesia, due to the inclusive filming and production process that encouraged them to speak in their mother tongues and to ground responses in their contexts, knowing that appropriate subtitles would be provided as necessary for viewers. This multicultural approach helped to meet UICC’s need in exhibiting Treatment for All as a campaign for everyone, an advocacy call to action that can be raised in any language to achieve a united goal. We are very grateful for the opportunity to have embarked on this project with Moonshine Agency. Thank you!”Micaela Neumann
“Sensational! Working with Moonshine has been a terrific experience – your skill in understanding our needs, and the professionalism and skill with which you executed an excellent outcome are what we value most.”KT Trengove
“At IAHPC we have worked with Moonshine Agency several times in the past and they are fantastic. And we recently completed a fundraising project with them with a series of videos - the resulting videos are fantastic and very well done and the strategy well planned. It was a pleasure to work with Mike and the Moonshine team!”Liliana De Lima
“Our organisation recently undertook a Cycling Charity Challenge as a major fundraising drive for project funding in Vietnam. It was the first of its kind where over 20 participants from around the world all met in Cambodia to cycle over 400km to Ho Chi Minh City, collectively raising over $80,000.
To support the future growth of this major fundraising program we chose to document the trip with video to use in future promotions.
We worked with Mike Hill from Moonshine Agency because of his strong history with other Non Government Organisations and Charities and the quality and professionalism of the video productions he has undertaken with them.
We were extremely happy with our choice and it is an absolute pleasure to work with Mike and his team, they provide guidance and support to us in an area we are not familiar with, they were clear and transparent on all aspects of the project and were in regular communication through all stages.
The level of professionalism and customer service was second to none and I would highly recommend Mike and Sue and their team at Moonshine Agency to anyone wanting to produce high quality video productions for their business or organisation.”Kirrily Graham
“Mike and Sue are the most wonderful film makers. They take great care to understand their clients and the scope of work, and for us, delivered a piece that was beyond what we could have hoped. Mike and Sue have worked with our students to build "digital stories", and in doing so have shown their innate ability to connect with, build trust with, and understand the subjects of their films. We've been thrilled with the work that they have done for us.
“I just wanted to express our thanks for the fantastic video ‘Kaye’s Story’ you produced for our National Palliative Care Week campaign.
The video was lauched at our National Palliative Care Week breakfast event to an audience of politicians, policy makers, palliative care workers and other leading health advocates. I could go on to list the audience of luminaries, but attendees included the (then) Minister for Mental Health and Ageing, the Hon. Mark Butler MP and Professor Ian Maddocks, Senior Australian of the Year, amongst others.
The whole audience was moved, some to the point of tears, by ‘Kaye’s Story’. It was an absolutely beautiful portrayal of Kaye and her family and perfectly captured the intense time in life this is for them, but also the comfort and support they are receiving from palliative care.
We continue to be amazed by the work that Moonshine produces and are extremely grateful for your work in promoting palliative and end of life care issues. We will use ‘Kaye’s Story’ in our continuing advocacy efforts.”Dr Yvonne Luxford
“Moonshine Agency was commissioned to produce a film to raise awareness of homelessness in the ACT and the need for new thinking in the current housing models and to raise funding to build Canberra’s first Common Ground.
Mike Hill and Sue Collins took on this challenge with gusto and developed a plan that envisaged a three part story of homelessness, the issues, how it manifests and most importantly that there was a solution being Common Ground.
Our films were the part of the catalyst for raising awareness and funds to build common ground, they were able to open dialogue with Government, philanthropists, business and the Canberra community, the films started a conversation which enabled a large pledge and commitments from both the ACT and Commonwealth Governments to be made.
The films provided a strong emphasis on the issues of homelessness in Canberra in a sympathetic way highlighting that it could happen to any of us at any time. The films showed the journey of a number of people who agreed to share their stories, their fears and their hopes and dreams. We were able to showcase Canberra as a beautiful city with it darker side. The films remain a powerful message today.
I would recommend Mike and Sue to any other social enterprises as an organisation which is quickly grasps the issues and can articulate a plan and they also showed great empathy and respect for the participants of the films not forgetting that they were in their space and home even though for some that was the streets of Canberra.”Diane Kargas AM
“Moonshine has taken a pioneering role in documenting the lives and communities of people living with rheumatic heart disease (RHD). We believe that Mike and his team have captured truly unique, never-before-seen footage of the international RHD community, which has the potential to dramatically increase awareness of the disease across the world . In compiling, editing and sharing this footage for several World Heart Federation projects, Moonshine has consistently demonstrated its dedication, flexibility, and receptiveness to new methods of strengthening the RHD cause. No task seems too big or too small for this team, and we have appreciated their ‘can-do’ attitude throughout our collaboration.”Joanna Markbreiter
“It was a pleasure to work with the team at Moonshine, who helped translate our ideas into beautiful, scope appropriate footage. They were accommodating and professional but most of all customer focused and friendly. We really felt like a team in the production process. I would definitely recommend using Moonshine Agency again.”Caroline Aspridis
“This year we decided to shoot some short videos to really get our message out there on social media but didn't know where to start..
After meeting Mike, Sue and the Moonshine team we have been so impressed by their professionalism including excellent management of the budget and schedule.
Throughout the project there was excellent communication by phone and e-mail, the attention to detail and knowledge was second to none.
We are very happy with the quality of our video's and also with the reaction they have received on social media.
The whole experience was first class.”Dean Stephen
“Thanks Moonshine for the successful outcome of our recent video presentation. Although we provided you with a challenging timeframe and tight budget, your professional approach and openness has instilled a confidence and trust that will continue to forge a strong and successful working relationship with Amicus. We look forward to your valued contribution to future endeavours.”Chris Maguigan
“I worked with Moonshine Agency for some promotional videos for my business, Barefoot Health.
From initial contact to post production, the Moonshine team listened to my every need, and delivered the project with professionalism.
Not only do they provide guidance on shooting day, they consider you a client before and after the shoot and provide analytics and advice on how you should release the content, and how it is tracking.
I would recommend Moonshine for anyone who wants a professional filming service with the added benefit of marketing and promotional advice.”Steve Hennessy
“I would like to give a hearty recommendation to the fabulous team at Moonshine. who have produced ten top quality videos for my law firm.
Moonshine is fantastic and a pleasure to work with. Their videos speak for themselves. But it Moonshine’s professional, thorough and patient approach which helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera and made a huge difference to the end product.
Moonshine is focused on business and maximising their client’s return on investment. Moonshine has a clear vision for getting the most impact from their videos and they have worked seamlessly with my marketing and Search Engine Optimisation team. Moonshine’s planning, responsiveness and follow-up is second to none. Their services are affordable and the results have been worth every cent.
If you want your business to get the most out of its marketing budget, I cannot recommend Moonshine highly enough. That is, unless you run a family law firm; in that case, please do not engage their services – I want to maintain my competitive advantage.”Marc Testart
“Many people are very impatient with their ideas and want to just tell people how it is rather than seek advice off of the best and have their ideas challenged in a collaborative way. We recently engaged you for a Strategic Communications Workshop as we are planning to do some launch marketing for our start-up venture. This involved preparing for targeting corporate sponsorships, a crowd funding campaign, and video shooting to facilitate this process. I must say that we were beyond impressed. "
"You were able to challenge us with courage yet show consideration with your thoughts which enabled us to more thoroughly improve our company vision, target market, and refine our goals. You were able to help ignite a realistic launch marketing campaign and assist us with an ideal video structure which will help make our launch marketing campaign the successful one I know it will. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a video producer, and anyone looking to have their launch marketing campaign bolstered.”Nat Daley
“The videos Moonshine Agency produced for my business, Grace Interior Designs, enormously exceeded my expectations. Not being a natural in front of the camera, Mike was patient, and accommodating, with lots of great ideas. Both Mike and Hamish are a pleasure to work with. Their professionalism is exemplary. Would not hesitate to recommend or work with Moonshine Agency again.”Trish Khoury
“This is a testimonial to thoroughly recommend Moonshine. I have recently had the pleasure of working with Moonshine to make a short video production for my website to assist with online presence and connecting with my target audience.
Being in front of a camera has been a fear of mine and I was initially quite nervous to take the step in making a video. I felt comfortable in trusting that Moonshine would support me through the process and deliver a high quality video that I would be proud of.
Moonshine exceeded my expectations and I was surprised at had how quick the whole process was from organising and writing the script to shooting the video. Moonshine created a relaxed environment allowing my personality to shine through which dissipated any nerves.
People make an opinion of a person in 7 seconds and Moonshine ensured that my video was professional, heart connected and authentic which is of utmost importance to my business. I feel confident that the first 7 seconds of my video will capture my target audience.
If you are wishing to expand your business and are time poor, I recommend Moonshine in the highest regards. They have a way of bringing out the best in people that needs to be caught on camera.”Melonie Taylor
“I never thought how easy and effortless it would be to produce professional and extremely effective videos for my business.
Moonshine’s practical experience, patience and invaluable knowledge helped me script and produce two videos: one to market my business ‘Quasar Business Transformations’; and the other, to promote my new book ‘The Undercover Mission: Revealing the Ingredients of Success.’
Moonshine made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and they gave me the support and advice, which made the video shoot experience extremely rewarding and easy to do. Moonshine is a remarkable professional team who knows their stuff. I had a lot of fun shooting the videos, and now I’m looking forward to the next production.
I would recommend Moonshine to anyone who aspires to market their business using high quality professional videos that are both inexpensive and extremely effective.”Laurence Sergovich
“I am so happy with Moonshine’s video work. The quality is top notch, the customer service and turnaround times are simply outstanding and most importantly, they focus on what they are great at rather than pretending to be an expert in your industry. My key measures of success were a) adding credibility to my marketing b) improving conversion and therefore c) increasing sales. I couldn’t be happier with the results.”Simon O’Kelly
“When I needed promotional videos done, I knew immediately it had to be with Moonshine Agency. Colleagues of mine had raved about Moonshine’s work. Very skilled in helping you get to the core of what you need to communicate and very patient and brilliant at executing the work needed. I have been able to use the resulting material on several platforms with confidence. Don’t procrastinate like I did trying to do DIY, get the real deal at a very affordable rate.”Jennifer Webb
“I want to thank you for the awesome work you did on producing the videos for my online program The Apprentice Bachelor.
We filmed 42 videos on location with 6 costume changes, six separate set-ups all in one day. A mighty effort. You made it easy with great equipment and the teleprompter really made a difference in keeping to schedule. Your camera work was as good as your direction and that made me at ease in front of the camera.
Post-production was just as good resulting in a very professional set of videos fro my program. Every video was uploaded to Vimeo and delivered to me on time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Moonshine Agency to anyone who is thinking of promoting their business using video.
Once again a massive thank you.”John Cirak
“I have no hesitation in recommending Moonshine. They made the whole process of arranging videos and updating my website really easy. They took time to understand my business; provide useful feedback and suggestions and ultimately deliver exactly on their commitments.”John Kelly
“Moonshine produce highly creative TVC’s at a significantly better price than most agencies. Their price does not compromise quality, as evidenced by approvals from our promotional partners, leading international film distributors, who are highly protective of their brands. They praised the ads as entertaining and professional. I have always been delighted with the concepts, the quality of the finished work and the results which consistently exceeded expectations and the market average.”Cynthia Cowan
“I would like to acknowledge Moonshine for their wonderful work shooting a Bollywood kids party video for me. I was very nervous to be in front of the camera but thanks to Moonshine’s warm, loving approach, I was made to feel really comfortable. He was very patient with me as I fumbled my lines and not once made me feel rushed. The entire time I felt safe and relaxed knowing he was there to support me.
The video has had 3 main benefits to my business already:
1) My brand looks more professional and high end.
2) I have been able to increase my pricing for the same service and people are happy to pay.
3) It is easier to convert clients – reducing the back and forth because the video paints a clear picture of what we offer.
Thank you for such a professional and impressive video. You have been a pleasure to work with and I would be happy to recommend you to people looking to attract more clients.”Jagriti Bhatia
“I engaged Moonshine on two video projects for my website and social media campaigns. On both occasions, Moonshine was able to take an idea and turn it into a powerful message that has helped increase traffic to my website and social media platforms. Moonshine also has a fast turn around time whilst delivering a top end product. I’ve also referred a number of my own clients to Moonshine and will continue to recommend others to Moonshine in the future.”Nick Hall
“Moonshine is an absolute pleasure to work with! They are simply the best at what they do because…They take time to understand my business and my vision…They create a superb quality final production which delivered the message that I am after and…Last but not least they went the extra mile to work with my SEO team to ensure the best result for my business. I highly recommend Moonshine Agency for your next VDO production."Orm Annetts
“I recently engaged Moonshine to produce an explainer video along with six testimonials for my graphic design website.
From the outset Moonshine’s service was responsive, friendly and professional. Moonshine’s briefing process helped clarify my intent for the explainer video and formulate my pitch in a way that engaged viewers.
What stood out most for me during the process was when I was in front of the camera. Moonshine was extremely patient and made me feel completely at ease. This resulted in a friendly, relaxed video that is personable yet professional.
Working with Moonshine through the editing was seamless and the whole process was a consultative one. I would highly recommend Moonshine for any business owner that wants to engage their prospects through video. If you are looking for videos that deliver results in generating leads or building credibility look no further than Moonshine.”Sean Walsh
“In my role as Company Secretary of Globe International Limited, I have worked closely with the Moonshine team for several years on the provision of corporate services including document design and production of the company’s annual report, notices of meetings, and upkeep of the corporate website. My experience has been extremely positive thanks to the professionalism, dedication, attention-to-detail, confidentiality and flexibility the Moonshine team has consistently provided.”Gerhard Correa
“We are delighted with the brandmark and style guidelines recently provided by Moonshine . Moonshine helped us to develop imagery which represents our values and commitment to collaboration. The design process was transparent, timely and enormously rewarding.”Dr Rosemary Wyber
“Just wanted to acknowledge how delighted we are to be working with Moonshine. Their professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding and we will continue to work with them from here on.
The Moonshine team is very efficient and accommodating in meeting our short deadlines and standards. We would highly recommend this team and look forward to building a stronger relationship with such wonderful talented people. Thank you Moonshine for all your hard work and commitment.”Terry Lay
“We have entrusted all of our media requirements (including online presence, video production and photography) to Moonshine continually since 2005. The nature of our work meant that we needed to find a production/creative design agency that could capture the mood and essence of what we do rather than just be an online pamphlet or sales brochure.
I simply said that we needed a website with extensive video footage that could capture the aesthetic of the Jazz music genre and the atmosphere of a Jazz club environment and Moonshine did the rest, coming up with a website that is regularly complimented by leading event management companies and both our private and corporate clients.
Moonshine has the ability to combine the commercial aspects required of a functional, professional and detailed website with the creative and artistic elements to give our website a uniqueness. The amount of positive feedback and bookings we receive as a direct result of our website means I have continued to use Moonshine for all of our video production, photography and website requirements.”Lucas Evans
“Moonshine have taken us to a whole new level in communicating with our stakeholders and clients. They design and publish an imaginative, professional and highly effective electronic newsletter linked to updated information from our website and backed by a comprehensive database. Even better, it is completely user friendly and enables us to manage our communication, marketing and branding opportunities how and when we want them.”Sue Maslin
“The Moonshine team provided their videography services at our inaugural Girls’ Night event and they were nothing short of excellent. What struck me first was their sincerity and willingness to do everything possible to ensure success for our business. Their professionalism and level of service in the lead up, during and after the event was highly commendable. Not only were their service levels extremely high but the final package they delivered to us went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you to the team at Moonshine, I cannot speak more highly of your people and services.”Merissa Mathew
