I recently had the pleasure of working on a corporate video with Michael Goldberg as our producer/director. It was my first time shooting in Tokyo. I could tell from the very beginning, Michael was an excellent addition and correct leader for our production. He was straightforward and rapid-fire in getting to the location to scout out the best spot to transform into our recording studio for the day within the corporate facility.
He thoroughly conveyed to me the particulars, his ideas, the measurements and included several photographs of the space options, offering his opinions on what would work best. He was so thorough and complete, I knew, from my spot in the United States, this would be a productive day and that we could get the results vital to the objective (employee communications) at my company. We had a great day of shooting and everything came together beautifully, including several outdoor shots as well.
Michael is a consummate professional and added value at every turn, including directing me and the subjects I was interviewing, providing an overall warm and positive atmosphere for the multi-goal shoot. I was raving about him back to our editorial supervisor in the U.S. and then raved about him to the producer in the U.S. who had sent us to Michael: thanking them for the referral. As someone who has been recording video in New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago and Charlotte for twenty years, I give Michael my highest recommendation.
I look forward to working with him and the crew he assembled and led again.
I started working with Michael Goldberg on the 20th march 2011. Nine daysafter the tsunami. We flew from Osaka to Hanamaki. We continued by Taxi andreached the totally destroyed city of Rikuzentakata. Looking back I am veryglad to have had Michael in the team. He did not just shoot very goodmaterial. He operated as a camera-reporter. As my japanese is zero Michaeltalked to the victims of the disaster. Very good results. Ask my bosses!Michael read the feeling of the people.This year Spiegel TV produced a 70-minutes-documentary about the tsunamiand the nuclear disaster. Before my colleague Maria Gresz and me travelledto Japan in February Michael designed very good schedules for the ten daysof shooting. Besides he found the creators of some tsunami clips onyoutube. Michael made the appointments to interview these relevant people.During the ten days in Japan Michael showed again his special skills. Heworked as a camera-reporter. With amazing results.
