Thank you Sirens Media for contacting me and allowing me to share my amazing story, now I can finally help give my daughter a voice she no longer has.
I wanted to let you know that Me and Aaron were pleased with the show and have received a lot of positive feedback about the show and people actually asking us to do another show so they can see how Makayla is lol... I just wanted to thank you for doing the show the way we expected...
Just wanted to let you know that Dave and I were very pleased with the episode. It was completely accurate, down to every detail, which is wonderful. We were especially grateful for the coverage you gave for our efforts to pass Katie's Law. Thank you!
Once again, thank you for producing such an accurate portrayal of our story, and for showing why arrestee DNA testing is so important!
Throughout the process it was a pleasure working with their company. The willingness of the crew to accommodate our needs in creating a safe place and their ability to relate openly and honestly with the inmates enabled the process to go forward. The series they produced followed five inmates throughout their participation in the BAWAR Restorative Justice Program, Tawheed/Changing Faces. Upon completion we felt they handled the subject matter fairly, without sensationalizing or glamorizing the inmates. We would be happy to work with Sirens Media on their future projects, and wholeheartedly endorse them as a production company that works well with prisons and community-based organizations.
SO happy with the outcome of the show. It was awesome!!! Thank you for letting us tell our story and reaching out to people who may be going thru the same thing. I got many messages and phone calls from people who I never suspected would watch and they were really happy with it. Please also let David know how happy we are with it and thank him for doing such a great job!!!
From May through October 2007, for approximately one to two weeks each month, Sirens Media was at California State Prison-Solano. The communication established by the film crew was excellent. Their grasp of, and willingness to follow, safety and security operations and needs was exceptional. They were upfront with their filming needs and desires, and were understanding when those needs and desires did not conform with institutional policies and procedures. In every instance they were willing and able to conduct their business in such a way as to minimize any impact on the daily operations of the institution.
The crew was absolutely the greatest!! You were right about them putting us at ease. I had a great time!
I really am glad I decided to do it. It was fun, the crew was fun and very professional and I could tell they like their work to be outstanding. I would like you to pass on to whoever needs to know, that they were the best!
Ron and I want to thank you and your entire crew for a great experience and wonderful show! We are very happy with the results. Our show was great! Thank you very much and keep up the good work!
I just finished watching the show. You all did a wonderful job! Thank you so much for including the information regarding the work I'm doing right now. I truly appreciate that.
And...Taalibah was watching with me. When she saw the actor playing her dad, she said, "Whoa...he looks just like dad!"
Thank you and the staff for everything.
I watched the show....thank you for showing our side and keeping our message portrayed. It was very well put together....yes I cried but I truly appreciate how it was put together. So thank you to you and your crew for being so nice. Again thank you :-)
Oh my god.....I love the show.....It is so neat to see it all put together. Great Job. I just want to say that was really cool and a lot of fun, I wish we had more time for you guys when you were here. Hope all is going well.
I just wanted you to know that I enjoyed the show. All of the response by co-workers and friends has been positive as well. Even David's family liked your show much more than the other shows. I'm very impressed with the work you did, and with your willingness to work with us. The finished product was certainly worth the effort. I hope to be able to work with you again in the future. Good luck with the series. I hope it runs for a long time.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for the work you do, and of course, for what you did for us this past Wednesday. You were all so helpful and attentive, and you made me feel more comfortable than I had ever imagined; you are true professionals. As you quickly discovered, this was a new experience for me, and I feel fortunate to have been guided through it by all of you.
Because Veterinary Forensics has only recently begun to attain credibility and acceptance, we are excited to have the opportunity to help inform the public about this subject, as well as, to contribute, in a small way, to the bigger picture. I would look forward to working with you again. I would appreciate it if you would pass this message on to all your teammates at Sirens Media that were here yesterday.
