I was charged with producing a promotional video for the Paradise festival and then given a budget for marketing of next to nothing. Throw in a devastating 2008 economy and I was forced to get very creative in order to make our 300k event budget stretch as far as I needed it to go. I remember considering taking Stew Redwine's name off the list of possible candidates to direct the promotional video because I never imagined I would be able to afford him. It was because I was already familiar with the quality he brought to his craft that I was skeptical he would be able to work with the limited resources I was able to allocate to the project. I called him despite my assumptions. My assumptions were wrong.
Stew listened intensely and patiently, proceeded to ask a lot of follow up questions, and then to my surprise got very, very quiet. I learned very early on that Stew is not someone who will carelessly advise. He took two full days to think of solutions to a very difficult problem. On the third day he called and this video was his answer.
I immediately hired Stew Redwine to help develop and direct the promotional video as well as document the festival itself.
I picked Stew because of his experience, connections, industry knowledge, and integrity. I have now worked on several projects with Stew and consider him one of the best story tellers in the business. He is a discoverer, a questioner, a listener, a thinker, and one of the best answer-bringers I know. Stew Redwine is the solution-slinger bullseye-hitter I call when my aim is off target. I know that's cheesy but it is the most accurate metaphor I can draw.
I obviously recommend Stew Redwine enthusiastically and without reservation.
Albeit after working with Stew you will, like me, come up with excuses to call him just so you can pick his brain. I've called him twice this week and it's only Tuesday.
