I was beyond excited when Meg and Halski Studio agreed to make a short film to accompany the release of Never Give You Away. As a passion project with no budget, this was not her typical assignment. And it would certainly not be your typical music video. It was decided early on – there would be no band performance, and no band members would appear. This gave Meg complete freedom to interpret the song in her own unique way. It also required her to utilize all of her creative talents – not just those behind the camera. From casting and production to shooting, directing and editing, Meg did it all. In the end, it was her passion that made the film happen as much as her talent and vision. And I love that as much as the result itself. Making something for the pure and simple joy of making it. That’s good stuff. And that’s often where true creativity is revealed.J.

I can’t express enough how happy we at CEDIA have been with the projects Halski Studio have done for us. Beautifully shot, brilliantly edited, and always completed on-time and well within budget, their work is second to none. There’s another element to what they do, though: The Halski crew has the unique talent to make subjects who aren’t used to on-camera appearances feel at ease. They are as kind and patient as they are professional. Simply put, the process is as stellar as the results when team Halski is involved.Ed WenckContent Director, CEDIA
After hiring countless agencies, Mark and Halski Studio rose to the occasion as a boutique agency that delivers on their commitments and works hard to exceed expectations. Mark’s personal talents as a photographer are iconic. I have now hired Mark at three different organizations, that’s how much I think of Mark and Halski Studio.Seth BurgettEntrepreneur and Board Member, yurbuds Sport Earphones
Halski Studio are gifted creative partners with a rare combination of vision, and know how. I hired Halski Studio to produce our Weissman showcase video in 2013 and have continued to do so every year since. Our work together elevated our brand to heights I never imagined we could attain… Their enthusiasm and willingness to take chances is not only seen in the final product but has a positive influence on our entire team. If you get the chance to work with Halski Studio jump on it. I can’t wait to work with them again!Michael GardnerCreative Director, Weissman Designs for Dance
