What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Pete Von Elling

    Creative Director, World Bank

    Dorst MediaWorks is excellent at developing unique concepts for his clients’ media and storytelling needs. That translates into a clear visual direction, but is also open to new ideas and approaches if it makes the overall work better. The company is great to work with.

  • Camilla Lund Anderson

    Deputy Director, International Monetary Fund

    Dorst MediaWorks produced a highly successful documentary video series … featuring our work. The videos have so far garnered more than a million views and continue to do well. I am extremely impressed by Dorst MediaWorks’ work, and highly recommend it.

  • Schuyler Null

    Dorst MediaWorks was very professional, creative, and delivered at a high level for a difficult, time-intensive, and complex international video project. Highly recommended.
