Lights! Camera! Action! Cut!

We have two principal mandates here at ChicFlicks. 1) Making professional video affordable for small to medium businesses. 2) Deliberately taking the stress out of your video shoot.

That is exactly what happens when you meet Andrea Jones from Jonesing for Leadership. Andrea walks into a room with an air of confidence and a self-assured smile on her face.
