A Flood Story, Senor Rafael at the Mexican Inn was one of a series of videos shown at a local Dancing With the Stars flood-relief fundraiser in support of local businesses affected by the 2013 floods.
Karen's creativity and attention to detail is second to none. The success of our event was a direct result of her ability to tell a beautiful story through film. I would highly recommend her company to anyone.

Hearts and Horses for Heroes (2014 Bronze Telly Award Winner)
Hearts and Horses, a therapeutic riding center in Loveland, CO serves many diverse populations. Starstream Productions, LLC worked with the center to create a series of "video vignettes," each spotlighting the effects of the different riding populations as part of "The Power of the Horse" series. Not only were these extremely effective for fundraising at their initial launch at that year's gala, Hearts and Horses has utilized these videos for years since. They are embedded on their website (with thousands of views on each) and emailed specifically to targeted potential donors and supporters for each specific cause (war veteran support groups versus Alzheimer's support groups, for example). The videos are shown at volunteer training sessions; indeed, many volunteers initially decided to come to the riding center after having seen one or more of the online videos! This group of videos as a whole capture the magic that transpires in countless ways at Hearts and Horses, and have compelled many supporters to donate time and money...a true testament to the power of video.
Teresa's Journey is a reality-style, mini-documentary, partially filmed by Teresa herself, which spotlights how a local nonprofit supports breast cancer patients.
Thank you for creating the exceptional video for this year's gala, which communicated exactly what we needed to our audience! Your creative efforts definitely contributed to the success of our event! Words can't adequately express how grateful we are to you for your support of Hope Lives and the women we serve.
