Testimonials

Anne Ellington
Executive Vice President  - Sealoflex
Ron Small and his Anchor Media Group showed me the real benefits of using a professional marketing organization. Working together produced a series of wins for us. Ron listened carefully and spent time with us to become knowledgeable about our products, trainings, customers and operations. Then he designed a proper marketing program respecting timelines and budgets. I expected to feel pressure to get everything done quickly, but pleasantly there was none. Ron really took the time to do it right and everyone he brought to our table possessed the same qualities. His has integrity, is trustworthy, professional and brings a sense of humor to every project. Our collaboration of the past 8 years has results in a number of exciting projects. Ron's creativity and broad range of marketing knowledge delivered a beautiful corporate brochure and corporate video, updated trade-show booth and new website and a collective grouping of collateral which has updated our image and assisted our sales growth. The proof is in the numbers! And, Ron's voice is perfect on our corporate video and on-hold telephone stream. With so many successes during our collaboration, it is easy to recommend Ron Small and his Anchor Media Group team.
Chris Murphy
Business Development Director  - Harrison Contracting Co., Inc.
Ron has always been a pleasure to work with. Here at HCC we are painting people, not actors or performers. Ron was able to make us all feel very comfortable in front of the camera and worked a few miracles to make us look good on film. Thanks to Ron and his team for a great video that we use constantly on our website as well as at trade shows and other events.

Tom Edinger
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ron Small over the past few years and I must say that in all of our dealings together he has been very easy, pleasant and most importantly, honest to work with. Ron has the unique ability to think outside the box and is able to draw from his many, many different talents in both the production and distribution ends of the video business to produce highly creative and network quality projects. And, in all cases when needed, he has gone beyond the extra mile for us in making even the smallest details of our productions come out beyond our expectations. I would recommend working with Ron without any hesitation at all.
Anita Singleton-Prather, First Lady of Gullah
\"Aunt Pearlie Sue\"
Who could have ever imagined a nice Jewish boy from Chicago, Illinois and a Gullah Geechee gal from Beaufort, South Carolina would be working together, spreading the Gullah Geechee Heritage around the world. In 1997, I was introduced to Ron Small by a colleague. In our first meeting I told him I had been storytelling for some years and wanted to do a video of my Gullah folktales. After I explained the significance of Gullah history, he promised a proposal for the project and I had it within the week. What he presented made me realize he was the man for the job and it was on! Thus began his often two -times-a-day trips to meet with me in my home town of Beaufort (90 miles from Charleston) to learn and understand this new culture he was tasked with making famous. His passion was evident. Not only did he meet my expectations, but exceeded my wildest imagination with the finished project. As the Producer, Ron recruited top professionals, including our wonderful Director Clark Santee, to ensure not less than the very best. He didn't stop there, the premiere was star quality, the marketing first-rate and film festival debuts beyond anything I could have dreamed of. And ultimately the show was broadcast nationally on PBS for 10 years. Fast forward to today and we are going into our 19th year of a business relationship, but more importantly a close, personal friendship. I’m told this happens a lot with his “clients.” Our most recent project is the musical documentary Circle Unbroken – A Gullah Journey from Africa to America, (www.gullah.tv) one of my proudest achievements as a storyteller and performer. Ron continues to bring to the table that same level of integrity, passion, and professionalism I recognized when I first met him. If this sounds like what you are looking for, Ron Small, my brother from another mother, is truly your man!
Anne Lee
Founder and former CEO  - Darkness to Light
Telly award winning, jaw dropping truth and public service announcements (PSA) folks still remember and talk about years after we introduced them to the world - that's what Ron Small produced for a little start up organization which grew to international status and is actively protecting 10's of millions of children. Ron's TV commercials put our organization on the map. Creating media that defines an issue and moves a community to action - that's the team I want on my side. Not to mention working with Ron is fun. I'd do it again in a heart beat!
Dr. Deborah Marcet
Psychologist in private practice  - Psychologist
In 2014, I hired Ron Small to update my website and give it a fresh look. One of his strong suggestions was to include video clips as he interviewed me. My reaction was initially not a favorable one and I definitely had to be talked into it. He wasn't even going to give me the questions ahead of time! My experience with this process was a complete surprise. Ron put me at ease right away and after a couple of minutes, I had forgotten that the cameraman and camera was there. It was like having a conversation with a friend who is really interested in what I did for a living. The feedback that I have received from my clients has been very positive. People tell me it helped them get a sense of who I am before walking in the door thereby reducing some of their anxiety in the initial meeting. I can honestly say that redoing my website with Ron has been one of my best business decisions.
Terry Wilfong
We have been working with Ron Small and his team for over 15 years on a myriad of multi-media projects and could write volumes about his talent and skills...let’s save some time "If you want creative, technically sound, innovative TV, Radio, Web-based applications, just hire Ron and his team"
Robin Berlinsky
Executive Director  - Engaging Creative Minds
Everyone commented on how comfortable Ron made them feel during the interview. I should mention that no one on our team had ever been filmed before so it was extremely stressful for them, until they sat down for the interview. Ron's calm and relaxed demeanor, genuine interest in what we had to say, and knowledge of our mission created a very natural and passionate discussion. Because of Ron, we have incredible footage that captures the heart and soul of our organization. We couldn't be happier with the results and surprisingly, they want to do it again!"
Dan Gurlitz
President  - Soundview Media Partners
I have worked with Ron Small and AMG for the better part of 15 years. During the course, our relationship has spanned a variety of film distribution initiatives and more recently involved production of new programming. The results have been a plethora of wonderful film releases including Brats: Our Journey Home, Circle Unbroken, The Tracie Long Fitness Series and the upcoming Intelligent Investing for Retirees. Throughout, Ron has proven to be a creative, upbeat partner with a never-ending supply of ideas. More importantly, he’s got a great laugh!
Chris Union
We have used Ron and his team for many years to help us communicate to our employees. Whether it was a national sales meeting and we needed a video to communicate our strengths and strategy, or just regular messaging, Ron always helped us deliver the right message with the perfect content. Very professional!"
Nate Sklaroff
Managing Partner  - Cheltenham York
I started talking with Ron about doing a website and videos for my sales training company Cheltenham York. Quite frankly, I wasn't sure videos could be made that would truly look natural, yet show enthusiasm for my organization and its services. My concern was that I wasn't fully prepared for "prepped" questions. Surprisingly, Ron made the process easy, making questions flow so smoothly that it was like a conversation that I'd have, telling a friend or business associate about the company... I almost forgot I was being "interviewed." The videos turned out great; they are very compelling. I'd recommend Ron and Anchor Media to anyone who wants to augment their marketing, and take a blasé website and add energy to it... to really involve the visitor and lead a call to action.
David M. Jones
I have worked with Ron Small for more than 25 years on numerous types of projects. He is truly a team player whether he is working for me or vice versa. The variety of projects demonstrates his willingness to roll up his sleeves and dive into the subject as if it were his life's ambition. We've produced commercials, infomercials, documentaries, corporate conferences, training programs, marketing videos and entertainment shows (just to name a few). He brings the same joy and enthusiasm to every project which elevates all parties involved. It has been a pleasure and honor to work with him all these years and I look forward to working on many more in the future.
Billy Keyserling
While there are many blank pages in American history books, Ron Small had the imagination, will and tenacity to create some of the missing pages in his PBS musical documentary "Circle Unbroken – A Gullah Journey from Africa to America" the story of enslaved Africans coming to America. With school distribution through Engaging Creative Minds students will learn what has heretofore not been discussed and will hopefully encourage conversations which are long overdue. Thank you, Ron! You have given this country a great gift.
