“Wild Scissors?”

Wild Scissors, LLC “just happened” while I was having fun making videos. Since 2010, most of my video production clients are Schools, Non-Profits and Small Businesses. I’ve enjoyed crafting their stories into long-lasting messages that communicate the worth of what they do. Like to see some examples? Watch my demo reel video in this section or click the youtube portfolio button.

Martha has wonderful ideas for filming but also listened to ideas that we had. She is knowledgeable and helpful, does her work with ease, and accomplishes what she set out to do in record time. We were pleased with the video.

Martha Low was a pleasure to work with. She has great vision and execution in her video production work, and is exceedingly professional.

Working with Martha has been a pleasure. She is very creative and organized - able to capture the essence of our programs with minimal disruption. Her pointed questions elicited honest responses from students and adult workers. We still use the film as a training video, as well as a recruitment tool for new volunteers.

Martha always performed professionally and with much attention to detail. She produced a number of well-received news packages for the City’s Cable and YouTube channels that helped educate our residents about a variety of topics affecting the community.
Kenna Cottman
Kenna CottmanVoice of Culture, Director
Wild Scissors' videos of our event are some of the best videos of our work. Because Martha paid such attention to the cultural information, these YouTube clips have become a resource, for promoting our work, and a place of connection for lovers of African arts and culture. The editing is also really good too - drums and dancers are in sync and the different camera angles enhanced the performance.
Annette Conklin
Annette ConklinFriends of SPCO
Martha was a dream to work with. She made a special trip to check out the room and acoustics, and used this information to select microphones. The videos were very clear, with fine sound. We were able to use them on our competition website and Facebook page.
Kirsten Phillips

Despite the fact that our events cover many locations, have short time spans, and a only a few media volunteers, Martha never fails to deliver a product that exceeds our expectations. She has the ability to coax great interviews out of people and great videos out of our events.

Martha Low produced an outstanding video about my nonprofit for B30 News. The final product was accurate in its reporting and provided a clear understanding of what our nonprofit does. I enjoyed working with Martha - she is very low key and polite, working her way through the project with an even demeanor.

The night you filmed us was one of the most fun dances we've ever played. Although you captured about every possible perspective of the dance, you and your gear never interfered with the movements of the dancers - instead, I think your presence enhanced the energy of the dancers. And we appreciated your collaborative approach to the project, checking in with us before we played about what we were trying to achieve with each set of our music.

Working with you was a pleasure and an education. Your style was easy and comfortable for me in a very stressful situation. I had never been a public person, yet you found the not so bashful guy hiding inside. Everything needed for the video was well prepared and you knew exactly what was needed and when it was needed to make it happen.
