Video Mantis allows me to showcase products directly to new users who get excited about things like tech specs. Plus the community section tied to each piece of gear really helps us with customer support.

"Thomas helped me from start to finish set up my Zaxcom Nomad 10 with new microphones and everything so that my deliverables were a step up in professional quality and organization. The amount of energy and passion he has for teaching people to do the same is immense. He elevated my knowledge of audio to a level that I didn’t know I was capable of, and the taught me some of the tools that go along with it. "
