Testimonials


“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
— Theodore Roosevelt

"I’ve had David Decker do a total of four product videos for several of my clients, and both they and I have been extremely pleased by his work. Beyond his obvious camera, directorial and post-production abilities, David’s experience, judgment and communications skills has been invaluable in planning and delivering complex projects. I’ve come to rely on his opinion, and am typically glad I did. I’ve never been disappointed in the final product or the work process. Plus he’s a great guy and easy to deal with. Simply put, using David is a no-brainer for me." 

Peter Fraser, Peter Fraser Design


“David Decker was a delight to work with on a recent film-editing project: Highly skilled, responsive to input, reliable and trust-worthy, and friendly and gracious all the way."  

Tom Krattenmaker Lewis & Clark College


“I worked with Dave to produce educational products for Hewlett Packard. Dave brought in state of the art technology and work methods that enabled us to produce higher quality material. Dave and his staff have a way about them that quite simply...produces great results with no fuss. Well worth the money, very creative, and cutting edge. If you are considering working with Dave, I would recommend telling him what your problem is rather than what you want as an end product. My experience has shown me that Dave will come up with solutions that are more effective than what I would have initially specified to him. He solves problems.”

Joe Hesch, Hewlett Packard


“We asked Dave to help us to create training tapes for our course leaders. He worked with us over a period of 8 years taping raw footage of our courses with various course leaders. He had an invisible but competent presence in the course room with our participants that did not detract from the processes, and people's experiences. He is a delight to work with. My course leaders have been able to use the raw footage to assist in their mastery of the material and in their own learning. We are now in the creative process of putting the raw footage into some edited formats to further leverage our library. I would highly recommend Dave for any project you have in mind. He is all about service, clarity and impeccability." 

Jill Taylor The Taylor Group, Inc.


“David Decker is a skilled professional and a joy to work with. When we hired Dave to create a video to promote understanding and acceptance of children with differences, I knew I would be watching the program frequently. Laughingly, I said that it had to be a program that I could see over and over again without getting bored. The project was a raging success. Many years and hundreds of viewings later, I continue to enjoy the video each time I show it. How Dave took over 12 hours of film and edited it to an 8 minute video which captured the best of the best, I’ll never know. I do know that the video continues to facilitate conversation, challenge stereotypes, and change lives. I highly recommend David Decker and Mercury Productions.”  

Becky Speulda, Shriners Hospital for Children - Portland



“The strong collaborative effort between the Jesuit team and Mercury Productions was key to developing a video that conveyed a clear and compelling message to our audience of over 700 guests. We were impressed by David’s creative ability to capture the narrative and shape concepts through the editing process. Thanks to his work, the end product delivered one of our most successful fundraising events for financial aid.”

Andrew Asato, Jesuit High School


“I have had the opportunity to work with Dave on a variety of projects; from PSA's for non-profits, to video interviews for Interactive Kiosks, to producing a documentary together. Dave is always a true professional. He is knowledgeable, prepared, brings ideas, and is always a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services and talents.”

“Dave Decker has consistently provided outstanding results for my employee communication projects at HP. I have used his services multiple times to create high impact video programs to promote the adoption of new tools and processes. His work and creativity have consistently exceeded my expectations. His work educates, entertains, and engages my audiences. Over the years, I found him to be one of the easiest video producers to work with and I highly recommend him.”

Doug Freeman, Ideascape


“Working with David Decker of Mercury Productions was a pleasure. His attention to detail, creativity, customer service and communication skills are excellent. I am particularily impressed with his goal of making 50 films in One Year project. His objectives to seek out stories of courage, beauty, community and personal meaning, to collaborate with other artists and explore new techniques, styles and skills are inspiring to say the least.”
