Brett, Dan, and their entire team have been not only super responsive and easy to work with but they make it FUN too!

What did you like least?

No complaints from us! BottleRocket has done a fantastic job all around.

Describe your overall experience.

We've had only great experiences working with BottleRocket. The team is incredibly friendly and willing to do anything in their power to make you, as the customer, happy and successful. BottleRocket was filming for us at an event when we found a huge box of swag that needed to be unpacked in short order. Brett simply sat down and helped us unpack, not even a question as to whether it was his job or not. 100% above and beyond!

What did you like best?

Working with the BRM team was such a smooth and collaborative experience.

What did you like least?

Not much to not like about BRM. Wish the shoot was more than 3 days.

Describe your overall experience.

Brett, Dan and the whole crew at BRM were great to work with. From the first phone call with them we knew they understood and shared our vision for the project, and would be able to deliver against a very ambitious budget, timeline and list of deliverables. Not ideal parameters by any means, but BRM rose to the occasion and knocked it out of the park for us. They are as lean and nimble as they need to be, but they are also more than capable and equipped to take on larger projects, that agencies in town might overlook them for. We have already reached out about another project and will definitely have BRM on our shortlist for every project going forward. High quality production with high quality people is what you get with BRM. Don’t sleep on them.

Brett and his team are extremely easy to work with. They really take the time to understand exactly what we need out of the videos they are creating for us. Regardless of how many new edits we asked for, they were happy to help and always provided a quick turn around time.

What did you like least?

My experience with BottleRocket has left me with only positive things to say about their team.

Overall, our experience has been very positive. If you are a tech company looking to explore video, this is your team.

What did you like best?

The fact that Dan and his team always come from a place of “YES”. The team at Bottle Rocket Media consistently delivers creative video programs that connect with our audience of health care providers. We especially appreciate the competence combined with the calm that they always provide.

What did you like least?

I cannot think of anything negative to say about the Bottle Rocket team or their work. We have only had positive experiences working with them over the past several years—both in the US and internationally. They have been an active contributor to our projects and a true partner throughout our working relationship.

Describe your overall experience.

Our company has worked with Bottle Rocket Media for many years on multiple medical education programs. Given our track record of success, we will continue to consider them our “go to” partner for all our digital program needs. They are true professionals, easy to work with, excellent problem solvers, and completely trustworthy. Lyerka D. Miller, PhD, CHCP President Miller Medical Communications, LLC

What did you like best?

Boundless creativity, unparalleled professionalism, limitless enthusiasm.

What did you like least?

No complaints! They worked within our budget to make sure we got just what we needed--and nothing we didn't.

Describe your overall experience.

Brett, Dan and the crew are top-notch when it comes to delivering projects that need to bring the OOMPH. It's rare to find a team that combines the talents of diehard creatives with technical/organizational wizards, and I've found them to be ideal partners. Their work is stunning...and so is their work ethic. They're also down-to-earth and some of the most approachable, friendly people, which means there is zero too-cool-for-school factor, which can be an uncomfortable side effect of working with Agency Bros. Highly recommend.

What did you like best?

RottleRocket Media is the rare combination of big time production with a personal touch. Dan and Brett (owners) are both former Oprah Show alums who are both master storytellers and visual artists in the video and graphic areas. Their expertise and knowledge is unmatched in the crowded content space. Their distinct ability to understand the audience they develop content for, whether internal corporate or external social pieces is especially refreshing. BottleRocket Media is always on time and on budget. They come with my highest recommendation.

What did you like least?

My work with BottleRocket Media has all been excellent. I only wish I could work with them more often.

Describe your overall experience.

I've used BottleRocket Media for a number of projects, both internal and external corporate video. From concept to execution, BottleRocket Media delivers a beautiful product. They are on time, on budget and extremely communicative. Above all, corporate video can be stiff or uninspired. BottleRocket Media are writers, editors and graphic artists who understand that corporate content doesn't have to equal "boring." They know how to bring business and people to life through visual storytelling. In each project I've completed with BottleRocket, I'm constantly impressed by their ability to think creatively. They care deeply about each project and their clients.

What did you like least?

I have been very pleased and have nothing to add to this section

Describe your overall experience.

I think Dan and his team are incredibly professional and talented. They are easy to work with, easy to schedule meetings to discuss projects, and very deadline oriented. Dan also is very helpful with project development ideas. If I have a vague concept, he is great to help define the project and develop storyboards for me to better visually grasp the end result. Excellent team of folks to work with!

What did you like best?

Dan, Brett and the rest of the Bottle Rocket team has always pulled through for us be it creating social video content with our influencers or more comprehensive video productions around Chicago with a lot of moving pieces. I especially love their pragmatic approach to creative production and relentless pursuit to help US make the best work possible, regardless if they only worked parts of the production (location scouting & booking, voice acting & recording, makeup & production) or helped us with every single component of it from start to finish. Lastly, being a startup ourselves with a rock & roll attitude, our entire team has always appreciated their like-minded approach allowing for great flexibility and rolling with the punches while achieving stellar results.

What did you like least?

There's honestly not much to criticize the team for. If I were to mention one thing it would be a difference in approach to the style, look and feel of the outcome but this all comes down to subjective taste – very rarely do we find agencies or freelancers that nail our look without guidance and a tight brief (we're also very opinionated about this aspect of our brand).

Describe your overall experience.

A pleasure to work with from planning to execution and always with reliable results.
