" I would highly recommend Crestway Productions video clip production. It can be a daunting process but from the moment I arrived on location I felt supported and like I was in very good hands. They took the time to understand what I wanted to create with my video and I at all times felt like I was part of the decision making process. Their ideas and vision were brilliant, they were well prepared and professional and above all, created a fun and calm atmosphere in which to perform. Loved the experience and cannot wait to do another one with them! "
Della Harris - Artist on her video 'My Turn Now'
"Crestway Productions helped give me the confidence to take my music to the next level and create a music video that I am very proud of. From the wide range of filming options that they provide, they tailored one to suit my needs and budget. Working with Crestway Productions was a very rewarding experience. I was kept informed about every step in the process and given the opportunity to have creative input to personalise the production."
Dan Higgins - Artist on his video 'The Hand'
"Crestway Productions were able to provide a creative flexible and tailored service when it came to filming my video clip. They took the time to come up with creative ideas with customer satisfaction always in mind, and not only were affordable but produced a great quality and timely end product. Highly Recommended!"
Bec Hance - Artist on her video 'Nothin' More To Say'
" I can honestly say, I had the best over all experience filming my latest video 'Heaven Found Me'. David and Merelyn were very hands on, but also let me control the direction of the video which I really appreciated. Being artists themselves, they understood where I was coming from. I could not give them higher praise and could not recommend them enough to anyone in the industry wanting a video done. I will definitely be doing more video's with David and Merelyn."
Jacqui Ryan - Artist, on her video ' Heaven Found Me'
" It’s not too often that a show in a small theatre returns a healthy surplus in the Box Office, achieving commercial and critical success, but thanks to the winning formula you offered us, A TASTE OF TAMWORTH did just that. Thank you for a brilliant show that from the time of booking through to saying goodbye at the bump out, proved to be an absolute pleasure to buy in.
We decided to put on a Sunday 4pm matinee performance, and achieved 90% capacity. I can only imagine what sort of business we would have done had we secured a Friday or Saturday evening. Audience feedback was simply great, and I have had many requests to ensure “Tamworth” comes back in future years. Staging your show so it sits well in a proscenium arch theatre gives the audience a quality theatre type concert. I can honestly say the performance exceeded my expectations and those of our audience."
Mark Fawcett - Cardinia Cultural Centre Manager on the Taste Of Tamworth tour
“We just love having you guys and your extended group on camp and will keep having you back as long as you are willing! I loved having the opportunity to work more closely with Merelyn this year and from all accounts the other women did too. As usual you did a great job of managing and organising so many aspects of the program – in particular the concert – and kept everything flowing beautifully. ”
Katarina Keough - Event Organiser of Camp Cobbold in North Queensland
“David and Merelyn Carter have been working with our music students for two years now and have become an integral part of our program.
The mentoring and guidance they provide gives our students the skills and confidence to explore their musical creativity when song writing, performing and preparing for the recording studio. David and merelyn create a very caring inclusive environment enabling our students to develop both individually and as a group.
I would highly recommend these very experienced and knowledgeable tutors to any Music Program”
Vanessa Byrnes - Performing Arts Leader St Marys Of The Angels , School Songwriting Project
“ Thank you to Merelyn & David for the Song Writers Retreat held in Sept 2017 at the Cheeky Fox Retreat, Kinglake NSW. What a relaxing way to get the artistic vibes flowing. We were surrounded by the most beautiful country, greeted and made to feel welcome by our gracious hosts and surrounded by a 'like minded' and an extremely talented bunch of people.
The first night was exciting as we got to know, and hear the stories from our group who were from all over Australia and from all walks of life. Our belly's were kept full throughout the weekend with great country cooking and then it was down to work - sunrise to sunset. David and Merelyn not only shared their tips & experience, but also mentored us through some of our songs. You can never know everything and there was plenty to learn.
The guest presenters, Adrian Hannan & Jetty Road, shared some great advise in regards to the music industry and their own song-writing processes. It was very inspiring to be able to have one on one time with artists who have not only achieved nationally, but internationally!
The highlight though was meeting new people and making new friends. Having a network of people to lean on, laugh with or just get some feedback from is an important part of being not only a song-writer, but it is important part of just being.
Thank you Merelyn & David for this well organised, knowledge fueled and fun opportunity. I was so glad I attended and it was so worth it. ”
