My class and I had the fortunate opportunity of being connected with Empty Cup Media through the Ontario Arts Council grant. This experience was truly amazing! My students learned so much about what was involved in creating a movie, from lighting, sound, cameras, acting, props, costumes and set design, and what a movie they created! Thanks again Colin, Carla and Karen for such an amazing 3 days! Your passion, talent, creativity and knowledge shined through every day you were with us and I look forward to our paths crossing again in the near future!
The Empty Cup team was very professional during all the work they have done for us. Colin is a master of his art and was not only able to make our vision a reality, but exceeded our expectations with the passion and interest he poured into each project. We will be working with Empty Cup Media in future for all of our professional media needs.
I've worked with Empty Cup Media on several projects and will do it again (whenever I get the chance). Carla and Colin are skilled filmmakers; fun to work with; and always professional. They're great people who do great work.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Empty Cup Media on different occasions. They have a keen ability to parse out the real “story” behind the projects they’re involved in. That ability results in well-constructed, professional work that flows from beginning to end and somehow manages to channel both Colin and Carla’s remarkable energy.
I met Colin and Carla a few years ago when they did a short documentary on my son. They were so personable, professional and really made it an experience I will never forget. I would confidently, recommend their service to anyone - they are the only company I would hire for future jobs - they were that good 🙂
I've worked with Empty Cup Media for years. They are professional, creative and sooooo fun. Just hire them 🙂
