I've worked with the creative professionals at COTU for more than 7 years, preferring their video and media services over all others for that entire period of time. As I've changed roles and companies, they are the only external agency who I've continued to work with — a huge testament to the quality and consistency of their work as well as their loyalty to clients. They have the right attitude, are super collaborative, create a great product, are very reasonable and are always there to get your back when pushed up against a deadline. Out of the dozens of media crews I've worked with, only COTU has stood the test of time.
