It is with great honor that I give my recommendation of Sydney Converse. While faced with adversity during her athletic career at Iowa State, Sydney found a way to push forward. Little did she know in that moment, it was an opportunity that changed the rest of her life. Ms. Converse picked up a camera and found another passion. She is one of the most dedicated individuals I have had the opportunity to coach. She has a way of capturing the true feeling of any moment and displaying it for the world to see and understand. Sydney is meticulous in her work and will provide the most professional experience. I have no doubt that Converse Studios will become the best of the best because Sydney is simply the best. Through her dedication, passion, and commitment you will get an All Heart experience.

"Converse Studios has an incredible ability to capture the true essence of your program or organization and make it shine. I am extremely satisfied with not only the video produced, but also with the clear and open communication style that Sydney has. I will definitely use them again!"

It gives me great satisfaction to recommend Sydney Converse for a position on your creative video team. Sydney has been working for Cyclones.tv, the video production department for Iowa State University Athletics, for the past 2 years. We encouraged Sydney to join our team after seeing the creative video content she produced for the gymnastics team during a season she was sidelined with an injury. Instead of being down Sydney channeled her energy into a new way to support her teammates and it caught our attention.
The first thing you notice about Sydney is her great attitude and energy. She immediately made a positive impact on our department with her personality and skill level. She is one of the best natural videographers we have and has an eye for getting the creative shot, which elevates the videos she produces. She quickly learned our equipment and continued to challenge herself with new editing techniques and skills throughout her time at Iowa State.
We have a small content creation team so we lean very heavily on our students and treat them as professionals. Sydney was always able to balance her time working for us and her commitments as a student-athlete. She pays attention to detail and is always willing to go that extra step to make the pieces she works on better. If you gave her a project you knew it would get done and be done well. Her can-do attitude and creativity has been a huge asset to our department.
Sydney would be a great addition to your company. We are sad to see her graduate and leave Iowa State, but we are excited what the future has in store for her. If you have any other questions please reach out to me at dorris@iastate.edu or call 515-294-9475.

“Sydney Converse is the Best of the Best, and we don’t say that lightly as we have been in business for 6 years and have used many different videography companies over the years.
In our industry professionally created videos are important to capture all of the services we provide. Her work has helped transcend our company and helped continue our positive platform. She works with our employees to create the best product and ensure the videos encompass everything we are asking for, from video tutorials to highlights. We would recommend Sydney to anyone looking for a quality professional video service.”

“The way that Sydney captured our day is beyond how we would’ve ever been able to explain it. From the big moments to the small intimate details that often are forgotten, she made sure to tell the story of our day perfectly. She was greatly professional and able to adapt to the crazy chaos of a COVID wedding! We will always cherish the moments that we now have to look back on.”
