The Producers Consortium has been an invaluable extension of our production team
for more than a decade, on projects that range from video to live-event and everything
in between… sometimes turn-key and sometimes helping out with one aspect of a larger
piece of work. Yellow Tag Productions relies on a robust 'extended family' of production
talent in our immediate community, and the Producers Consortium has been a favorite
cousin since the 90s. We literally couldn't have done what we've done without them.

I give Producers Consortium my highest recommendation. They were professional,
compassionate and went above and beyond our wildest expectations in creating our video.
I can't imagine looking anywhere else when the time comes to make our next video.

Brent Johnson of Producers Consortium is an excellent producer. I've known him for over 15 years.
Our first project dates back to the 1990's when I was working as in-house producer at
Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Together we created an informative and well-received
series of patient education videos.
Because of the solid working relationship we established, I have since hired Brent for video projects in my current role as the Manger of the Corporate Media Department at Medtronic, Inc. based in the Twin Cities. I have always been more than pleased with Brent's work and would highly recommend him.
Corporate Media Manager
Our company has worked with Producers Consortium, Inc. for many years on many diverse
projects. We've found them to be creative, technically knowledgeable, honest, and
efficient. In terms of thoroughness with DVDs, commercials, etc., it is an enormous
benefit for us to be able to rely on the experienced judgment and capabilities of
the people at Producers Consortium. There is a very good chance that they have literally
"been there and done that" with a wide variety of projects, and we are happy to
be one of their clients.
Director of Marketing
Brent has been a valued part of the freelance team at Best Buy for many years. He's a great
live event and video producer/director. No one is cooler under pressure, and his
work is always top notch.
Senior Director, Yellow Tag Productions
Best Buy Co., Inc.
Congratulations for an excellent job on the video. You did a very professional and
skillful job, in my opinion, of tying together all the components of the story.
You are very talented, and I wish you the best of luck in your career.
With your expertise, "calmness", cooperation and long-term vision, we not only got
the video done, but the content of the video is more than we ever hoped for and
that I owe to you. Your creativity and focus on what we wanted as far as a final
product, was almost like you had been working for this company all along.

The St. Paul Companies
I have been working closely with Brent Johnson of the Producers Consortium for over
six years, producing large, elaborate Business Theater events. The big difference
between Brent and other producers is that he fearlessly navigates our complex organization,
which makes him invaluable to the internal team. Brent is extremely organized, professional,
cool under pressure, and always a pleasure to work with. The Producers Consortium
has not just been a production company to us, but a trusted partner.
We have found the working relationship with the Producers Consortium to be one of
the best we've ever encountered with a vendor. They were creative, very responsive
and cost effective. Simply put, we got a big bang for our buck with no surprises
from the Producers Consortium. Given their particular expertise in the health care
industry I feel confident in their abilities to handle virtually any project. I
recommend their firm wholeheartedly as you plan for any video, film or print production.

Our sales force is very excited about this new selling tool! I found you to be creative,
very professional, and easy to work with. And, looking back on it now, those three
qualities are probably the most important qualities I look for in a service provider.
Product Manager – Healthcare Products
Although many of us felt as soon as we saw it that we had an excellent marketing
tool, we could only be sure once we were able to "put it on the road". I am pleased
to tell you that the reception we've received to our video has been excellent and
has, I am sure, been instrumental in our closing several new accounts. You have
demonstrated a great deal of talent and professionalism as you completed this project.

It was a pleasure working with you. The stories were easy for consumers to understand
in spite of the technical content of some of them. Your patience and persistence
were really as asset when it came to working with the medical professionals.
Lisa G. McDonald
University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinic
It was enjoyable to work with someone of your caliber who can deliver a message in
an informative yet entertaining way. I'm still amazed at how much we accomplished
in such a short timeframe. Even more impressive is the fact that you kept us on
budget! It is safe to say we can expect significant impact on sales as a result
of your efforts on this project.
R. A. Ewing
What a terrific job you did! Everything was on schedule and ran like clockwork. The
results speak for themselves – we were on news shows at 6 PM and 10 PM on every
major station we targeted. Your counsel in planning a video news release with real
news value was key to the success, as was the high quality of the production itself.
And the VNR proved to be a highly cost-effective element in our overall public relations
program. Thanks again for your expert assistance.

We set out to do a high-quality video, and that's what we got. The concept, the actual
video footage and the graphics blend together for a fast-moving, colorful and informative
Director, University Relations & Alumni Affairs
Southwest State University
We're very pleased with the outcome of the show and we much of its success to our
talent and skill. Your responsiveness or our needs and ability to move the project
ahead with a demanding schedule were greatly appreciated.
Brent also tried hard to make the process fun. I am sure that it's always frustrating
to work with 'amateur' in the world of television, but Brent never made us feel
that way. He took our suggestions seriously. The entire product was much better
than we could have imaged, thanks largely to Brent.
