  • “New Zealand Post was seeking a short film to highlight one of its sponsorship activities, but something a different from what agencies would deliver – we didn’t want ‘just another ad’. Ro’s brief was to provide a production with subtlety, emotion and above all, a quality film in its own right. He delivered 100% on the brief, and brought his own unique style and talent in what was an easy, straightforward process. We’ve had tremendous feedback as a result of Ro’s film, and New Zealand Post would recommend him for other corporate work”

  • “Thanks again for your help and energy on this project, the video really captures who we are and where we’re heading as an organisation and the end product is definitely the more polished, fresh and professional result we were looking for.”

  • “The best part about working with Ro is how easy he is to work with. He took care of everything: from sitting down and casually interviewing our co-founders, to shooting our team working and collaborating together, to selecting the music and producing the final cut. And feedback on the video has been great, with viewers commenting that it is “authentic and approachable”. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend Ro, and look forward to working with him again in the future!”

  • “Ro accepted the challenge to make an inspiring video about how a team of engineers, planners and builders refurbished two major road tunnels at night. The outcome truly exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process Ro was professional, flexible, accommodating, and patient. He delivered the video on time and within budget”

  • “I hired Ro to film a promotional video for a project I was working on, and the results were amazing. I had never been on camera before, but after a few minutes of working with Ro, it was easy to find a rhythm, which enabled me to confidently deliver my message. Throughout filming, I was grateful for his creative eye, constructive feedback, and overall perspective. I am incredibly proud of the finished product, and it will timelessly serve my marketing efforts.”

  • “We engaged Ro to do video segments for our graduate recruitment website. It is the first time we have used video and there was some apprehension. The process could not have been easier. Ro has a calm, unobtrusive approach. He was able to readily put people at ease which resulted in our videos being warm and engaging. He also kept to the schedule we agreed up front which meant no unnecessary waiting around or delays. Ro completely understood what was important and edited down to succinct messages. We are very happy with the results.”

  • “Ro Tierney was contracted by Entertainment Publications to film and produce a 4/5 minute informational Web Film for our high traffic website. I found Ro’s finished product to be of the highest standard and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any commercial business which needs high quality, professional film work produced. I look forward to working with him again in the future”

  • “Ro is such a pleasure to work with and the project was smooth sailing through and through. The video output was what I was expecting and captured the energy, enthusiasm and excitement during the day. He told the story very well using the footage and audio clips from the on cam interviews.”
