Catholic Charities USA needed a very inspiring, once-in-a-lifetime video for our Centennial. Melissa Costello was simply perfect for the job—exceeding expectations in every way. This is a filmmaker who not only makes a great product but is a sheer joy to work with. Her subjects and her crew love her—and the client jumps for joy.

Melissa Costello was an outstanding creative consultant helping our museum develop an online exhibition and film to highlight our International Creche Collection. Her ability to create engaging (marketing) products using a fine art collection allowed the Loyola University Museum of Art to extend its reach to new audiences. Bravo Melissa!

Working with Melissa Costello was a fantastic experience. Not only is she a talented filmmaker, she is a wonderful storyteller, and she even reads minds! Melissa was able to help us tell our story with words and images that I didn’t even know we needed to include. It was magical! I highly recommend working with Melissa.
