Laguna Canyon Foundation
Telling a story on film takes a special talent, particularly when working with nonprofit staff and volunteers who may be passionate about their cause but not professional actors. Karnik creates magic with his editing so that the passion remains, but the performance has a professional level.

Mary Fegraus, Advisor

Torrey Pines Association
Jim has done all of our web films over recent years. His work is top quality. He is remarkably capable of capturing beauty of place, as well as conveying information.

Peter T. Jensen, President

Southwest Wetlands Interpretive Association
Jim is very familiar with San Diego's natural environment.  His knowledge makes it very easy to build a visual environmental message around the information the client has to share.

Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation
The Lagoon Dredge video project price was right, well received by the public and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and provided a lot of information for public consumption through a nice video clip.  The production experience was very professional and optimized the time required to video the various segments.  The video included an aerial segment that utilized an aircraft provided by California Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Jim did a wonderful job in shooting scenes through an open cockpit window!

Fred C. Sandquist, President

Earth Discovery Institute
The films you created for EDI gave us great way to communicate about our programs briefly and with great visuals.

California Wetlands-Investments in Our Economic Future
Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project

Just wanted to tell you that we played the video at the South Oxnard Revitalization meeting on two separate occasions. Both times it made an enormous impact on those who viewed it. At the 2nd meeting we garnered 40 signatures on letters asking the Coastal Conservancy to buy Ormond. One man refused to sign because he felt he knew nothing about wetlands and had only lived here a couple months. After we played the video, he asked if he could still sign on to the letter and now wants to help us! The power of the video is astonishing.

 Quest for Sentenac - Anza-Borrego Foundation

The Anza-Borrego Foundation is very pleased with the work you did on "The Quest for Sentenac" video. The video was the central piece of our marketing strategy for the campaign to raise $2.55 million for the Sentenac Canyon and Cienega acquisition. The video, which played continuously at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Visitor Center, helped educate park visitors about the project and certainly helped to raise thousands of dollars.  

 Exploring San Diego's Natural Diversity
San Dieguito River Conservancy

Last night my wife and I saw your piece for The San Dieguito River Valley Land Conservancy, and we wanted to extend our compliments. The logical, unrushed transitions, the calm, factual narration, even the music, all combine to produce a superb film. We'd say you really are in a class by yourself in this difficult genre. It inspires us to plan more hiking

Working with Jim was a pleasure. He was very collaborative and understanding of the special requirements inherent in shooting free-flight activities. The movie was a hit in our community. We feel it represents very accurately our sport, its rich local history, and our continued commitment to responsible, low-impact use of areas that host us. we would certainly consider using Jim's expertise on our future projects.
