Caileigh Dauphinais - Sony Representitive 


"Bernard is a creative and passionate visionary and director. We hired CareerCrate to design and produce several videos to reside on a recruitment site. Ever the professional, Bernard made the process easy and fun, happily working with us to create the perfect videos to represent  what it means to work for the company. He is committed to getting the video just right."


Cheryl Evans·Communications Coordinator at The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) 

"We hired Bernard (CareerCrate) to produce a promotional commercial for our Association. I was pleased from start to finish with Bernard's personable skills and attention to detail. He always puts the customer first and goes above and beyond to create the best possible product.You can count on his team's creativity to provide you with a leading-edge product that will get noticed in a competitive market. I will certainly work with him again."


Jennifer Sabean -  Project Geoscientist and Outreach Consultant for Canadian Geoscience Education Network 


"CareerCrate recently completed a project for the non-profit outreach organization the Canadian Geoscience Education Network, highlighting the careers of different earth scientists across Canada targeting high school students. Despite a small budget with ambitious goals, Producer and Director Bernard van Speyk was able to create eight incredible videos that went beyond what we had hoped for.  Not only did he travel all over the country to remote places with a well-equipped team to capture quality sound and imagery, he got his feet wet (literally) to ensure he had all angles to work with back at the studio.  CareerCrate had access to fantastic additional background music and photography (still and video) that enhanced the core material recorded in person, and went to great lengths to get special permission through contacts when more was needed.  While being relatively unfamiliar with the subject matter in the beginning, CareerCrate embraced it enthusiastically and not only grasped the concepts behind the interviews, but contributed to them in ways that added depth and excitement to the final products.  Being new to this process we were not ideal clients, but our project was in very capable hands with CareerCrate who worked patiently through our edits and special requests, and were very professional communicating openly throughout the entire process.  We greatly enjoyed working with CareerCrate and hope to do so again in the future when new funding becomes available. We highly recommend CareerCrate to anyone looking to promote their career to the world in a dynamic and quality video."


Godfrey Nowlan - President Canadian Geoscience Education Network 


"We found CareerCrate to be an excellent company to work with. They helped us get the most out of our limited funds by making thorough plans in advance of the execution of the project and by being very understanding of our circumstances throughout the life of the project. We are absolutely delighted with the videos that were produced and we recognized at the end of the project what an advantage it was to have engaged a company with so much experience and understanding of how to make career-related videos. We would highly recommend the company to others, especially those like us who had little or no experience in making videos prior to the project. It is a group that you can trust to do their best for you."


Sheila Roy - Director at Appraisal Institute of Canada 


"I highly recommend Bernard for his project management skills - from project concept and design to implementation. His attention to detail and personable style made him easy to work with and helped us to achieve excellent results. Our members were thrilled with the video production quality and its impact on the youth demographic. He understands his audience very well and helps his clients achieve the best results for their investment. I would certainly hire Bernard for a future project."



Linda Legault - Program Director at CAH (Centre d'Accueil Héritage)

"Bernard created a promotional video for us, a not-for-profit seniors’ community support agency, using our seniors and personal support workers as actors. He was able to bring the best out in them, making them comfortable in the process. The end-product surpassed all our expectations. He has a remarkable ability to capture the essence of a message by masterfully crafting and combining memorable images. "

Lisa Taylor - Speaker, Researcher, Consultant & Author of The Talent Revolution: Longevity and the future of work

"Bernard and his team were responsible for recording a live conference where I was keynoting. He was tasked with transforming two days of content into useful products for the international association hosting the conference. His team was professional and did an excellent job of capturing both the content and the spirit of the conference without being intrusive. Looking at the resulting videos it is clear that he paid careful attention not just to what was happening in the space but also to the direction various discussions were going, ensuring audience feedback and emotion were captured - not just the speaker at the front of the room. Every interaction with Bernard and his team through out the conference was enjoyable and following the conference he had creative ideas and was very responsive."
