"Andy has been a long time customer and friend of Hamlin’s Marine. As technology and media channels have evolved, Digital Spirit Media has been a great partner in keeping Hamlin’s Marine on top. The video production is top notch, and DSM’s creativity takes the final product to the next level."
Alliance For Maine
“Digital Spirit Media has made all the difference in the Alliance for Maine’s communications effort. The experience, leadership, and professionalism they brought to our project was invaluable—and they did it at first with good cheer and then later as friends. They took the time to understand our objectives, strengths, and weaknesses, and then they maximized the quality of our shows at a very reasonable price. They picked a terrific background, put all of us amateur performers at east, coached us on how to be effective communicators, and produced first rate, high-quality products we are proud to distribute. We’ve shown their work to 100’s of Mainers to universal acclaim and we very much look forward to a long and productive relationship with them.”
Maine Forest Service
“DSM has partnered with the Maine Forest Service’s Be Woods Wise and Healthy Forest Programs on several projects, including “Profiles of Woodland Stewardship in Baldwin, Maine.” The Profile is a multi-part documentary depicting private woodland owners in the Baldwin area, and the foresters and loggers that work with them. DSM brought their camera and video-graphic skill into the woods to show foresters preparing sustainable harvest areas, live timber harvesting with a variety of equipment types, and a group of local citizens touring through managed forest land to learn more about woodland stewardship. Through it all, DSM’s professionalism and ability to work efficiently in the natural world created a truly outstanding finished product. Thank you, Andy Collar and the rest of the staff at DSM!”
MAINE FOREST PRODUCTS COUNCIL
"Digital Spirit Media did an exceptional job for the Maine Forest Products Council and Maine TREE Foundation on the production of our “This is my office – Maine” video, which allowed loggers across the state to talk about working in one of Maine’s legendary professions. Andy and his team are very professional, but even more important they know how to help people feel comfortable telling their stories.The video exceeded everyone’s expectations and also was right on budget. I would recommend Digital Spirit Media to anyone who has a story that needs to be told."
"Working with Andy at Digital Sprit Media was a breeze! He was very accommodating while gathering video shots, had insightful ideas regarding the flow of the video and was very professional. He really took time to get to know us as people and understand our company as a whole. He was open to our ideas, was easy to reach and returned calls and emails promptly. We are very pleased with our final product and use it at conferences, trade shows and with clientele."
Lipman & Katz
"I have worked with Digital Spirit Media for years. They are the gold standard in Maine for television and video production. They are easy to work with, flexible, and true professionals at the top of their game. Plus, they are great people. If you decide to work with them, you will not regret it!"
"The crew at Digital Spirit Media is disciplined to drill into the details on the front end to define the project and then Andy’s creativity and adventurous spirit produces the very cool results. They never shy away from the hard work it takes in the field and in the studio to get it right. And all that comes with the honesty, integrity, and experience you want from a supplier of custom work. I trust them so much with my projects I have flown them halfway across the country to meet aggressive schedules."
"I have worked with Digital Spirit Media on various tv advertisement and video projects for over 10 years. They have always met or exceeded our expectations and been willing to “go the extra mile” for our needs. Our award-winning DVD entitled, “Defensible Space, it could save your home from a wildfire,” was scheduled to start video production in late spring a few years ago. A day before the first video shoot, due to a wildfire that consumed a remote log cabin, we had to make a complete change in the script. Andy and his crew shifted gears and did a great job of filming and getting the most out of the forest rangers and homeowners who were not used to being on camera."
"I have used Andy Collar and crew from Digital Spirit media since 2001. They have shot and produced many commercials, videos and designed websites for me. We have become lifelong friends and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They are a one stop media company. I would put them up against anyone in the country. You will be very happy with your relationship with Digital Spirit Media."
"I have worked with and around Digital Spirit Media since its inception. DSM takes meticulous care to do the best job possible. Everyone associated with DSM works with a constant commitment to make fuller productions, all while keeping an eye on the bottom line and maximizing value to their clients. “Andrew Collar has been at the forefront of cost-effective innovation throughout his career, producing network-quality shows in studio and in the field."
