"I have had the pleasure working with Carpe VM on several projects ranging from charity events in New York to video projects in Israel. Each time Charlie & Carpe VM were prepared, energized & on top of what is technologically possible with marketing & video. In fact it becomes one stop shopping, which is critical in an overscheduled world. The other impressive piece, is that the communication skills employed & fun had while fulfilling on the intentions create an atmosphere of integrity & play. Unusual to say the least. I encourage you to put your business in Carpe's capable hands!"

"Multimedia is as essential for credibility today as a web site was a few years ago. But you have to do it right. Deploy it strategically, or your effort will be counterproductive. Charlie DeBenedittis is a great guide through the process, from hiring and managing the camera crew to helping you edit your presentation, to adding those little touches that distinguish the professional from the amateur. He's honest, thorough and well-priced. Work with him and you won't have to worry about a thing. "
