"I first learned about Firewire Films in 2008 and was instantly impressed with their professionalism and product offering. Although we had been using the same vendor for producing DVDs of our events for a number of years, I felt that it was time for a change. After my initial contact with Chris Ronzio, and upon receiving his proposal, I knew it was the right decision. It was apparent that Firewire could provide us with not only a fresh new product, but also detailed records that were seriously lacking with our previous vendor. They are state of the art in what they do and they have exceeded our expectations in every respect. They are professional, personable and extremely helpful to everyone. Making the switch to Firewire has been one of the best decisions that we’ve made for our competitions and we look forward to a long lasting partnership with them. Skaters, parents and spectators have been extremely pleased as well and I highly recommend Firewire every chance I get."

"We used Firewire Films at our 2009 Boston Open Competition in June this year. Chris and his crew did an outstanding job in working with the Local Organizing Committee in terms of the planning, setup and execution of the event. Firewire films introduced a Live Streaming concept for our competition which was a huge hit with the competitors. Word quickly spread to relatives across the United States that they could tune into the Firewire website and see the competition live. Overall, the team was great to work with, and their Customer Service was exceptional. We plan on bringing them back to our competition in 2010 and I would highly recommend them for your event!"

"Thank you for the live and on-demand coverage of the Boston Open - awesome! I'm amazed at how well the live feed works and how quickly the on-demand videos appear. I tweeted the link to the video more than once and heard from people who were glad to find it. :)"

"I am enjoying the Boston Open immensely. There are so few opportunities to view club events, especially this early in the season. Kudos to you. "

"A-W-E-S-O-M-E! So exciting to be able to see live footage of the Boston Open Figure Skating Competition!!!! The footage looks GREAT! Very nicely done! What a great asset to the event itself. My daughter skated yesterday and I DID buy the DVD for her event! It was very nicely done."
Boston Open Parent
"Love the live feed. I hope more competitions consider it. Even though I'm here it is hard to see all the events when you have someone competing. I was able to watch the events I couldn't see in person."
