“The book trailer that Kikim Media created for From Seed to Skillet was by far one of the best produced and most beautiful trailers I have ever received from a production company. Kikim went above and beyond and really worked with me to get the right messaging and story across in the video. The trailer was also incredibly well received by viewers and did an amazing job of getting the word out about the book. I would hire Kikim again in a heart beat!”

“My co-author, Jimmy Williams, and I were impressed and gratified by the level of professionalism Kikim brought to our project. The producers came to the shoot with a comprehensive knowledge of our book, and an organized, intelligent plan for how to communicate its substance, look, tone and scope, all in the course of a 3-minute video. They were very clear in explaining what they wanted from us, and their focused interview questions brought out the best in us. Under rather difficult urban conditions (particularly, lots of ambient noise in a densely populated outdoor location), they captured our book’s “story” in all its dimensions, in a short amount of time and in a way that made the process fun for all of us. But perhaps the most amazing part for Jimmy and me was to see the final product and to perceive how precisely it conveyed the flavor of our book and all its parts. We had been very nervous about the whole idea of this kind of video, especially since our book is an amalgam of different things–part garden book, part food book, part personal story. Kikim managed to convey all of this, and to do it in a way that made it feel immediate and alive. Quite a number of people have told us that after seeing the video, they just had to buy our book!”
