"A first class videographer and a genuinely nice guy, Steve brings a sense of professional engagement, creativity and -- dare I say it? -- fun to the set. His distinct (and contagious) sense of humor, along with his air of cool, collected confidence makes everyone on the set -- from the talent and the crew to the agency and its clients -- feel very much at ease. I've worked with Steve on several projects over the past 15 years or so, and have yet to be disappointed with the results."

“Advanced Valve Technologies has collaborated with Robbins Productions for years. These guys are production maniacs! They are our go to company for video production. They bring creativity, flexibility, humor, attention to detail, and a deep knowledge of our products and clientele to every project. It’s always a surprise to see the interesting approaches they come up with when telling our story. We were in a sales presentation where a potential client commented, “With a video this good, your product must be fantastic!” These guys are maniacs, but an unbelievable asset to the growth of our business.”

The DuPage Senior Citizens Council was fortunate to have discovered Robbins Productions in 2006 and use them for all of our video needs. We consider them part of the Family! The “Crisis on the Horizon” Video they originally created for us was absolutely brilliant. It captured not only the essence of our agency and mission, but also the compassion and dedication of our staff and volunteers and the heart and soul of the seniors we serve. Their second video, “Pay Forward/Give Back” was equally fantastic and is used at 2 annual fundraising events and motivates the viewers to care more, do more and donate generously. From concept planning all the way through filming to editing for finished product, they are a delight to work with. It is wonderful to watch Augie and Steve “do their thing” – they are truly masters of their trade!
