a list of reviews from businesses about my services.
RACHAEL CALVERT/ DIRECTOR, MARVELL LANE
What can I say and where do I start? I have been blown away and impressed by Maiya's professionalism, enthusiasm and positive energy from the moment we first met. Maiya reached out to my small business and asked if we would be interested in having her make a video of our swimwear. I had seen a video Maiya had previously made for another fashion label, AC The Collection and had wanted to do this for quite some time so it was perfect timing when Maiya reached out to me.
Maiya asked me what I wanted, what I like and told me about her creative processes and how we could make a video which suited Marvell Lane. Maiya immediately followed up our meetings with notes sent via Google Drive which we used to communicate all feedback with the editing process. So fast, easy and seamless. Maiya is diligent and professional and kept me on track. This is very important because I run a small business and I am often stretched with my time so it was wonderful to work with someone who is proactive and doesn't require me to follow them up. These traits will always serve Maiya well and set her apart from the pack.
Maiya came along to our photoshoot before the call time (5:45 AM!) and was immediately helpful and not just in relation to shooting her own footage. Maiya worked quietly in the background all day and captured some beautiful imagery. After our shoot we researched the music which would suit our latest collection the best and Maiya did the rest. Any minor changes I needed to make to the videos were made immediately and sent back for me to review.
I cannot recommend hiring Maiya highly enough. Creative. Professional. Efficient. Positive. That's what working with Maiya is all about. I can't wait to make more videos with Maiya in the future.
DIONE SINGH-PANGLY/ MILLIES OF NEWRYBAR
From the very onset Maiya was not only a delight to work with but she was thorough and professional in her approach. She has an ability to quickly form a broad understanding of the topic at hand and to be able to showcase this through her film work. Maiya has an exceptional talent that is well above her years and this is evident in the finished product she creates.
Without hesitation I would highly recommend Maiya.
INOSHA CAMPION/ DESIGNER, SAHANA BYRON BAY
We recently filmed a video with Maiya for our latest collection and we are extremely happy with the production. We would highly recommend Maiya to anyone looking for quality, creative and engaging digital media work.
Maiya is professional beyond her years and has quickly developed a refined eye for artistic style.
We appreciated her collaborative approach and commitment to delivering a final product in a timely manner that exceeded our expectations
INDE HENDERSON/ BYRON CLIMATE STRIKE
Where to begin? From the start, Maiya was a pleasure to work with. Maiya understood our goal and overall message we hoped the content would portray. She managed to reply instantly to ANY of our requests, finished the video well before we expected it and continually applied herself to helping us in anyway she could. I couldn't recommend her enough!
ANGE CLEARY/ DESIGNER, AC THE COLLECTION
Working with Maiya was truly inspiring. To see a gifted and talent young woman creating and forging a path for herself in film is truly admirable. I engaged Maiya to do a short fashion film for my fashion label and was so impressed and happy with her level of skill, craftmanship and professionalism, that I asked her again to do a series of film works for me. Her eye for what your brand needs and wants, plus her openness to ideas makes her a delight to work with. Maiya makes it her responsibility to please her client by creating excellent material for the best outcome to market their product.
TERASE DAVIDSON/ FOUNDER, TASTE BYRON BAY
What a breath of fresh air is this young lady!
I've had the pleasure of sitting in a couple of meetings with Maiya over the last couple of months, and have been pleasantly blown away by the way Maiya conducts herself, through the thought provoking an well balanced questions she asks (her charming way of extracting key nuggets of information to help her learn more about what her potential new clients brief / brand). Her insight and way in which she can communicate and contribute to meetings, is well beyond her years.
Maiya undoubtedly has a beautiful way of capturing the essence of brands and location, in a way that seems to effortlessly traverse across multiple demographics. Her works seems very 'minimalistic' on the surface, but for the skills and instinctual touch it takes to create and tell a story via film.
Maiya recently produced a film for our Taste Byron Bay : Salted Caramel Sauce. The brief I gave Maiya was pretty basic, as I wanted to give Maiya the scope to create something that was fun, whimsical and engaging (this I feel is one of Maiya's key strengths in her story telling). The "A Picnic with Salted Caramel Sauce" film that Maiya came back with well and truly blew me away, and was exactly the fun and carefree film I had envisaged in my head, but didn't yet know it!
I've already recommend Maiya to other local businesses, who were looking to work with a professional creative filmmaker, they have all loved her work.
I can't wait to continue to watch this young filmmaker grow and captivate her audience through the art of film.
GENAVIEVE PETTMAN/ FOUNDER OF THE FLAX CO
Maiya was absolutely lovely to work with for our product photography. I found her to be really easygoing and accommodating. She communicated well and was very professional. With such drive and talent, I’m excited to see what the future holds for you Maiya!
MIA THOM/ BYRON CLIMATE STRIKE
Never before have I seen a video that encapsulates the energy, passion and integrity of an event. It was perfectly executed and extremely sophisticated in production. I cannot get over how good it is.
VINDI FERGUSEN/ BYRON CLIMATE STRIKE
Maiya created a truly unique and passionate film that beautifully captured our event, we couldn't have asked for a better outcome! I was so impressed by how fast she finished the film. It was all round a great experience!
ELLA WHAN/ BYRON CLIMATE STRIKE
Maiya went out of her way to make sure she could make the best video we would enjoy. She captured our event perfectly and we couldn't of asked for it any other way
