“The results of Nathan’s video production helped increase the conversion of our sales page from 1.8% to 2.4% – this was HUGE for us. Our video engagement rate has settled at 48% which is above the industry average for sales video’s. This resulted in 10’s of 1000’s of dollars of additional revenue while spending even less on advertising. For the first time in a fiscal year we had sold out EVERY workshop we produced in 2012. Many students complimented the SMD video as being “really well done” in translating the value of our program.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nathan on several video projects for Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver. He’s always on time, professional and very relaxing to work with. He takes the time to listen and understand any requests you might have during the filming. The end result of the video turns out to be just the way we envisioned it because of his attention to detail and his natural ability to capture the right moments on camera. It’s also amazing how quick and efficient he is when providing us with the finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend Nathan to anyone looking for a top quality video production.”

Stephanie Tolentino, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver


We came to Nathan with a quickly approaching deadline for a video we needed to help with our upcoming investment round and launch into the market. Nathan was collaborative and helped make the whole process a breeze, and adapted well to hiccups that were encountered during the filming. He brought his expertise to the table and recommended a set of two videos that best suited our goals for the project. We are very happy with the work Nathan did for us from start to finish and wholeheartedly recommend him.”

Kody Baker, PEng, MBA, VeloMetro Mobility Inc.


I would highly recommend Nathan. He is professional, personable, talented and easy to work with. He does what he says he will do, when he says he will do it. If you are looking for high quality video work, he is your man!

Sean Jimenez, soulpepper

BC Athletic Commission

“…Overall the services provided by Mr. Skillen were excellent. As part of our challenge the video had to
appeal to an audience in a way that encouraged behaviour change. Training camp practices for fighters
have historically included weight cutting prior to competitive bouts. These practices are unsound and
potentially extremely harmful. Mr. Skillen produced a video product that told a story which has
resonated with our industry and stakeholders on a larger basis. The feedback has been phenomenal and
the intended change is happening.


The work of BCAC in this regard is currently in the queue for Premiere Award nomination which includes
the video prepared by Mr. Skillen. The video will be highlighted at the international annual convention
of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports.


I highly recommend for those interested in this topic area that they view the Dangers of Dehydration
video. Organizations intending to produce an educational or informative video would benefit from the
video services of Mr. Skillen. In short Mr. Skillen was extremely professional, skilled and his final product
not only satisfied our needs but has been met with some acclaim.”

Wayne Willows, BC Athletic Commissioner
