I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Rivertree. John and his entire crew establish themselves as a valuable asset to any team. They are honest, dependable, and diligent. John is a problem solver who is able to address obstacles that come along with strategy and confidence. His knowledge of the industry and expertise in its intricacies was a huge advantage and contributed greatly to the success of our shoot. I confidently recommend John and Rivertree for any production services needs in Florida.

John and his team at Rivertree were an absolute dream to have as a service company for the prep and execution of our 3 day shoot in Grand Cayman. Our content was hugely ambitious and much of the success in its execution was down to their collaboration, talent, diligence, and know-how.
