“After hearing how Shams guided his girlfriend, now fiancé through the video creation process in a very conversational way, I asked if he’d be willing to assist me virtually in creating videos for my website. I’m so grateful to have hired Shams to guide me in this video creation and editing journey. We had a few preparation sessions where we discussed the ‘vibe’ for my videos, all the required equipment and a content session. Shams also reviewed a test video before our video day. On video day, we recorded the videos on my phone on a tripod while also being on a zoom call together, which really helped calm my nerves knowing that I wasn’t speaking to myself. In between takes, Shams would provide valuable feedback. He added in an element of FUN and EASE throughout the whole process while weaving in his magic. We really worked well together and I absolutely love the outro he added to the videos of my logo with the sparkly diamond effect, and the way he displayed my signature framework with the accompanying audio file. I highly recommend working with Shams to create and edit your videos. Thank you Shams, for all the encouragement and your guidance along the way!”
