From The Field Cooking School: 'Video helped my business a lot'

Bill Turney, owner, talks about how his promotional video recorded by Raphael Rodolfi from Videogenique helped his business gain more exposure and get more customers sign up for his cooking classes.

OSF Saint Francis: 'He definitely went above and beyond the duties that we requested'

Based on a co-worker’s recommendation, I hired Raphael Rodolfi with Videogénique to record an all-day Supportive Care Conference for OSF HealthCare. This is a very important topic for OSF as it is a system-wide initiative and physicians from all regions attend this conference each year.

When I arrived at the venue on the morning of the conference, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Raphael had already toured the facility days before to determine how he was going to set up for the event. There were several breakout sessions being held in different rooms that day and Raphael was prepared and knowledgeable about where he needed to be without any direction from the OSF team.

He had a genuine interest in the topics and even came up with the idea to shoot testimonials with conference participants about what they learned, how it applied to their job at OSF and why they would encourage others to attend next year’s conference. He definitely went above and beyond the duties that we requested.

He also did a great job communicating with our team before, during and after our event. I would absolutely recommend Raphael to others based on his quality work, creativity and upbeat attitude.

Jim Lahood:' Thank you for your professional and compassionate preservation of my most treasured memories'

Memories are one of the most valuable commodities we own.  A great way to preserve them is to have Videogenique produce a DVD that will last forever.  This can be an interview with a beloved family member, or a treasured event.  I cherish the Videogenique DVD of my wife’s funeral services.  Now whenever I want, I can return to the church, and watch the beautiful tribute given her, and I can enjoy it on a day with much less stress than when it actually took place.  Thank you, Raphael, for your professional and compassionate preservation of my most treasured memories.

TCRPC: 'He was so punctual and professional! A real joy to work with.'

I am pleased to recommend Videogenique for affordable professional videos.  TCRPC has used Raphael’s services to create our Brilliant.Bright.Community informational video and to document ViTAL Economy’s work on regional economic development.  I referred Videogenique to the Peoria Park District’s ELITE program director, Carl Cannon, and now, every time I see him and his assistant, they tell me how great Raphael was to work with.  “He was so punctual and professional! A real joy to work with.” If I had one recommendation it would be to use Raphael’s editing capabilities.  He has an amazing way of condensing a lot of material down into the very message you are trying to send.

Midstate College: 'Videogenique provides top notch quality video production without breaking the bank'

Videogenique provides top notch quality video production without breaking the bank. Our commercials have turned out great, and we are thrilled with the final results. Raphael’s creativity and eye for that perfect shot make working with him a great pleasure. I would use Videogenique’s videography services again and would recommend them to anyone!

Parsons: 'I was very impressed with the quantity and quality of equipment he brought to the shoot'

With very little lead time, Parsons Company was asked to submit high quality video to one of our customers for a special project. I viewed several web pages of local videographers and was impressed with Raphael’s video examples so i called him. Raphael was able to accomodate our need for a very quick turnaround of video footage from within our manufacturing facility. Raphael has an eye for detail and is passionate about creative video shots! He was very easy to work with and welcomed any ideas we had. I was very impressed with the quantity and quality of equipment he brought to the shoot. All of our goals were met in the time we needed them and on budget! I will use Raphael again anytime we need videography and would recommend him as reliable, dedicated and professional.

Hann Hagemann: '...such excellent work!'

I’m writing you, my Central IL. based colleagues in the arts, to give a personal and professional recommendation for videographer, Raphael Rodolfi and his Peoria, IL. based Co. Videogenique.  Since beginning his co. 3 years ago I have hired him multiple times to film projects for me including actor slates, online auditions, as well as a showcase featuring my advanced acting/music students, of which some have used footage as documentation for college and conservatory admissions applications and on their own websites.    In addition, my actors reel, ( clips from film projects I’ve worked on), is always assumed to be created by a West coast  Co., ( correction, it’s based in none other than Peoria, IL.),  and recently at a pilot season audition I  was asked which LA video co. produced such excellent work!  It was a proud moment to tell them otherwise!

Raphael is focusing more of his efforts on working with the Arts community of Central IL. and recently filmed a dance event  at the Cornerstone building.  We all know that having a copy of our work for archival use and/or grant submissions is essential to keeping our studios, theatres and arts related co.s afloat.    His sensibility to filming dance, music, theatrical, and art gallery events is evident in his work.  And it’s important to him to be able to provide the Central IL. community with top quality production and quick turn around.  ( He has the ability to produce multiple dvds within a 30 min. time span if needed!)

On a personal note, while working in Chicago, Raphael( originally from France),  met Peoria born Katie Couri, and after marrying her moved to Peoria.  Katie teaches at Peoria Notre Dame High School and they have a beautiful 1 year old son!  Raphael looks forward to continuing to offer professional, affordable video services to his new friends in IL!

Ann Hagemann,

Peoria Public Schools District 150: 'He produced videos with little to no direction and was still able to send us an end product that was beyond our imagination'

I met Raphael at a couple of events out in the community and saw the work he was doing in real time, followed by the end product he published online. I was impressed with his professionalism at events and it seemed his desire was to always get a better shot and more options to make a quality video. Our District had several events that we wanted to be able to share online with not only our staff, but with our parents and community as well. Raphael seemed to be the perfect fit! In some cases, he produced videos with little to no direction and was still able to send us an end product that was beyond our imagination. In another instance, we completely talked through and developed together a storyline for a TV commercial. Both the online and TV content has had our staff and community buzzing about the events and programs he helped us feature. I am so happy with the service that Raphael and Videogenique has provided for our District and how he has been able to help showcase the remarkable things happening within our schools!
