"Herman Mantis worked above and beyond what I ever expected. Sam and Will took the time to know every detail about MYRO in order to create a product that showcased the program perfectly!"

− Kevin Oates, Maine Youth Rock Orchestra Director & Founder

"Working as a freelance artist I wanted a marketing tool that allowed me to show my creative process to the public. Herman Mantis not only unveiled my art in a creative time lapse video, but helped portray who I am as an artist and an individual to my audience through intricate and beautiful cinematography art."

− Manda Valeri

"Sam and Will Caswell of Herman Mantis spent two days filming my guitar making venture, creating a very professional and engaging promotional video of a process that takes weeks to complete. They were inventive and creative, with many of their sentences starting with the words- What If...?"

− James Macdonald, Art Guitars

"Working with Herman Mantis was amazing. The process became smoother than ever before. From the initial concept meeting until the finished product, their understanding of the mission and concept was impeccable. Not only did they succeed but they improved upon the idea and made it a beautiful piece. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to bring a vision to life at the highest level."

− Kyle Poissonnier, Be The Katalyst

"You're not going to find more talented, professional, or efficient production team than Herman Mantis. When Sam and Will commit to a project they do so wholeheartedly and the results are nothing short of remarkable. Hands down, Herman Mantis rocks!"

− Jeff Shaw, Maine Academy of Modern Music

"Herman Mantis blends the perfect amount of talent, professionalism and fun in their work. Capturing an entire community isn't easy, but Will and Sam have done it flawlessly and with ease. FreeportUSA first hired Herman Mantis 11 months ago for one project, and we're now collaborating on videos 7, 8 and 9!"
