I loved working with LV/CS on my video project. They really listened, understood the story we were trying to tell, and brought excellent skills and intuition to the table. Our video was very nicely filmed, edited with finesse, and it authentically told a meaningful story that will move many people to action. Little Village helped us tell a story that we hope will help make the world a better place.
