Testimonials – Words We Love to Hear!

“We had over a dozen companies from at least four states bidding on our video project; JBC Communications instantly emerged as the top contender for the job and delivered exactly what we needed, on time and on budget.  Our sit-down interviews were beautifully lit and framed. But what mattered even more to me, as a  former television producer/reporter, is Jay’s embrace of the creative process and innate sense of patience. He’s seasoned enough to know just how to let a story unfold, but also understands contemporary design and pacing. More than anything, I appreciated his collaborative nature and genuine enjoyment in working with clients, not just for them.”

Katie Abel, Assoc. Commissioner for External Affairs

“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Jay Childs on several important projects during the past several years, and his contributions have improved each of the ideas we have brought to him. He’s a consummate filmmaker, with a keen sense of story, a great eye and the sharpest editing skills in New England. He’s also a pleasure to work with, and understands the need to adhere to schedules and budgets. I highly recommend JBC Communications for your project.”

“Documenting a highly technical project like the horizontal directional drill at Little Bay Bridge was no easy task to ask of any vendor. JBC was a true partner during this project delivering creative direction, field personnel coordination and off-hours responsiveness due to the shifting timelines and weather. We were thrilled with the final product.”

“Jay is the definition of professional. We’ve been working together on numerous high-def video projects that have taken us from Portugal to Turkey to Mexico City, and around the states. The results simply speak for themselves. Jay is the type of businessman you can rely on. On-budget, time, and quality. We’ve output to Blu-Ray, Flash, WMV, MOV, AVI, and many other flavors to suit the myriad of needs that have come our way. You might have even caught the PUMA video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qY4msj5Q05Q) with its north of 525k views. I highly recommend Jay and his production work (both corporate and documentary) and am happy to serve as a reference if needed.”

“Ensuring available, affordable housing for New Hampshire’s workforce has been a high priority for New Hampshire’s business community for several years, which is why the BIA contributed financial support to “Communities & Consequences”. The issues raised in the film and accompanying book focused on this critical business issue. As a part of our campaign to pass meaningful workforce housing legislation, the BIA distributed “Communities & Consequences” to all 424 members of the New Hampshire Legislature. We believe this was critical in raising awareness and understanding of the workforce housing issue and, ultimately, was an integral part of the successful effort to pass legislation into law.”

Jim Roche
President, NH Business and Industry Association

“I have seen first hand the positive impact Communities and Consequences has had on the issue of the lack of workforce housing in New Hampshire. Most notably NH passed  landmark legislation enabling the development of workforce housing and several Seacoast towns have adopted, or are working on workforce housing friendly ordinances.
I knew “Communities and Consequences” was influencing public opinion when a local town planning board chair spoke about ‘Human Ecology’ and then held up the film and companion book and recommended his committee view the movie and read the book.”

Review of Communities & Consequences – Named to Top 5 Selections Across Categories
at NH Film Festival (Best Documentary, National Telly Award Winner) 

“This 56-minute documentary by writer/producer/director Jay Childs and demographics expert Peter Francese of Exeter is must-viewing for everyone in New Hampshire. Especially people here in Portsmouth grappling with the middle school issue.

Francese goes inside small town New Hampshire to investigate the causes and effects of our graying state. Young people are leaving us for various reasons,  lack of jobs, lack of affordable housing, lack of adequate schooling (as evidenced in a Moultonborough middle school debate) and a general impression that they are not welcome.

Francese conducts exit interviews with young couples leaving the state, attends city meetings, talks to young professionals’ groups, meets work-force housing developers and gets both sides of the Not In My Back Yard debate. Truly the best kind of documentary.”

Gina Carbone, Seacoast Online
