A Little About CLAi

Good Manners And Selling Yourself

As an Englishman, it is beaten into you from an young age that you shouldn't say anything positive about yourself, as it just isn't the sure thing - instead you have to give carefully worded hints and hand signs in some strange 14th century code. It makes About Us a somewhat tricky subject to write around.

Of course, this goes against everything that is American and decent – but how do you fight so many years of that British imperialist training pounded into you by straight-edge nannies and perfectly-proper prep school prefects? James Veitch knows about this too, in case you are getting bored and want a quick break from my waffling.

Well, it seems to me that the best way is to let others say what they think about CLAi and the work that we do… and so here are a few of the most recent film and video production testimonials that we have received from a few of our clients, with a wider selection in the film and video testimonial sections (which even use words like “freaking” – that I could never say to this day, even after being a US citizen for 18 or so years).

If you like what they have to say, then I think that you will like the other sections in this area so do check out the pages… especially our Rules To Live By, a deep insight into the alleged brain of our franco-hungarian Briard puppy, Belle.

Hilary Stewart

Not only is he the consummate professional...collaborative, creative, experienced, and a talented owner operator from the camera to the edit bay...he is funny and a joy with whom to work!

Lorraine LoBianco

Although our budget was minuscule, he took on the project as a labor of love and treated us as though we were his high-end clients. He wanted everything to be as good as it could be, and that's exactly what we got. He's a dream to work with. There's no drama with Chris, no attitude. Just a great cup of tea and a warm personality.

Thia Markson

I was looking for an editor for my documentary feature film and found in Chris Layhe more than I knew I needed, wanted or thought possible. Chris was a calm in the storm that is documentary filmmaking, and made this dream project of my lifetime better and more successful than I could ever have imagined.

Chris and his team from CLAi are very experienced in their craft, true professionals and so easy to work with.
