What Clients Say

Over the 20 plus years of working with Joe, I never had a worry as to the quality of production that would be produced. We did thousands of commercials and training videos for the retail businesses that I served as Ad Director/Marketing VP. From concept to final product, it was always a pleasure and relief to have Joe and Diamond Studio there to assist in the many challenges I faced.

Judy Butler

I’ve worked with Joe and his company for many years with numerous clients for both creative advertising production and web site design and implementation. He is the first, and usually only, person I turn to for work that I know will provide my clients with great results for their budgetary allocations and within their often-demanding time frame.

Bill Mylius
Marketing Consultant, Mylius & Associates, Birmingham, AL

Joe delivers top notch results at very affordable prices. In an industry with a wide range of talent (and prices) Joe was able to consistently exceed my creative expectations while maintaining budget integrity. His positive attitude and strong work ethic make him a joy to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get more bang for their advertising/video production buck.

I have known Chris for many years, and found her to be creative and organized, no job was too large or too small.

John O’Malley
President, Strategic Visions, Inc., Birmingham, AL

My experiences with Chris and her team at Diamond have always been positive. This is a company that delivers the product you ask for, at the price you agreed upon, on time. In the “last-minute-change” world of video production, that’s the best you can hope for.

Barry Copeland
Sr VP/Operations, Birmingham Business Alliance, Birmingham, AL

Joe was always on top of the 1000 details that make for a successful commercial production shoot – this is not easy to do when you are also shooting the spot, as Joe often did. When I would get on set, it was squared away and ready to go – and his attitude is always positive. There just isn’t a “can’t be done” thought in his head, a quality I admire greatly.

John Zimmerman
President, Chief Creative Officer at The Aberdeen Coalition

I have worked with Joe and Chris at Diamond Studios since 2003, developing television commercials for different water and theme parks around the country. From start to finish, their professionalism and experience have made it possible, for the parks I worked for, to produce high quality commercials in what were sometimes unrealistic timeframes. In addition to producing great television commercials and video products, their development and maintenance of interactive websites is excellent. When I need a Television commercial, the first thing that comes to mind is contacting the folks at Diamond Studios.

Bob Morgan
Director of Sales & Marketing, Magic Springs Water and Theme Park, Hot Springs, AR

The Cambridge Agency and Diamond Studios have enjoyed a working partnership for 26 years. Since the beginning, the spots, videos, and websites we have produced together have always had positive results. This is our longest business relationship and we intend to continue it for the future.

They have always worked hard to please us and to give us exactly what we wanted at a good value. They have performed with a high degree of integrity and are been dependable and easily accessible. Their final product has always been exactly what we wanted.

Jimmy Warren
Owner, TotalCom Marketing, Tuscaloosa, AL

Excellent! High quality work delivered on a timely basis for a fair price. Doesn’t get much better than that. Well, actually, it does. Their straight forward business approach and “let’s get to the point and get it done” attitude is refreshing in an industry that is sometimes prone to puffery and embellishment. And to top it all off, they are very nice people! I give them 5 stars!

Wettermark Keith, Birmingham, AL

Have been doing business with Diamond Studios for approx. 30 years and have shot 1000’s of commercials with them. Easy and fun to work with as they are very professional in the way they treat their clients.

Having worked with Diamond Studios for more than 25 years, I can say without any reservation that they are the most professional and detail-oriented production group that I have worked with. They know me, my clients, and consistently offer suggestions that make the spots better than anyone could have imagined. They take ideas and scripts and turn them into powerful video productions. Diamonds Studios – THE BEST OF THE BEST!!

Christine Clark

Over the past 20 years I’ve worked with Diamond on a variety of projects ranging from full-blown location shoots to quick revisions of existing commercials. Their creativity, professionalism, and attention to detail are unsurpassed and their prompt response and quick turn-around time when I have a tight deadline is much appreciated.  You won’t find a better group of people to work with than the Diamond folks!

Susan Bryan
Partner, Reid/O'Donahue Advertising, Montgomery, AL

I have personally worked with Diamond Studios for more than three years. Diamond has consistently performed over and beyond my expectations as a production company. Over the years, I have received excellent service that results in high quality productions from Diamond Studios. Because of Chris, Joe and the entire Diamond Studios staff, I can give my highest level of recommendation.

Jeff Davis
Marketing Director, Signature Homes, Birmingham, AL

My first commercial with Diamond studios was in 1996. Former Miss America, Heather Whitestone and Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz were spokespersons for Express Oil Change. With a celebrity’s limited time, everything had to be organized to the minute. Diamond pulled it off. Since that time, I have created dozens of other commercials for the Alabama Department of Mental Health and the Governor’s Office…all with Diamond. Additionally, we have made several documentary films together, including one that received an award from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Most recently, Diamond helped film tornado relief spots for the Department of Mental Health’s crisis counseling response to the April, 2011 tornado disaster. The spokespersons were NCAA national championship coaches Nick Saban and Gene Chizik. Diamond pulled it off.

Public Information Officer, Office of Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey, Montgomery, AL

I love what I do. So I found it particularly refreshing to discover Diamond Studios and develop a rewarding relationship with folks who share a passion for great work. The entire Diamond Team offers a can-do attitude, a collaborative environment, a fresh perspective on creative, and a respect for the client’s budget, deadlines and needs. They prove that hard work can still be enjoyable, that modest budgets needn’t mean a modest effort, and that a verbal promise is valued as much as a legal contract. If they say they can do it, they’ll get it done. Well organized and well managed, the team has surpassed my expectations as a vendor – and I now consider them a trusted partner. In this business, these Diamond-folks are rare gems indeed.

Creative Director, Weintruab Advertising, St. Louis, MO

Working with Joe Miele for the last 15 years has been a pleasure. The creativity and innovation of his group has been vital in the conceptual development of our successful CRM program.  He delivers quality products on time and is very knowledgeable of cutting edge technologies. I can depend on Joe to keep me informed of new and exciting opportunities to grow our web and social media presence in the marketplace.

Joy McCord
VP Marketing, Hibbett Sports, Birmingham, AL

Reliable, comprehensive, peace-of-mind. Those three words accurately describe Diamond Studios. Diamond does what you ask them to do when you ask them to do it. Diamond has the equipment, staff and expertise to produce outstanding video, outdoor, print and digital campaigns. And, I sleep soundly knowing Diamond doesn’t let important details fall through the cracks. I’ve referred them to other ad agencies. I’d refer them to you.

Jim Whisenhunt
Owner, Whisenhunt Advertising, Birmingham, AL

I have worked with Diamond for nearly 20 years from when I had my own chain of retail stores to now when I have an ad agency. I cannot say enough good things about them – they are professional, creative, reasonably priced, have the latest technology, produce the highest quality product and, besides all this, are lots of fun. Diamond is incredibly accommodating while working on the tightest of deadlines. I hope I never have to use another studio because Diamond is the best!

Linda Verin
Owner, Ads That Work, Birmingham, AL

We’ve engaged Diamond for our video production needs and have been consistently impressed by the timeliness and quality of the product. Chris, and her team, are eminently professional and do what it takes to get the job done to the clients’ satisfaction. I would highly recommend Diamond to any firm in need of high quality video or digital media services.

William Trout
SVP/Director, Internal Communications, BBVA Compass, Houston, TX

I have worked with Diamond Studios for over twenty years as a creative and television production source. They have been a business partner and our friends. We owe much of our success to their expertise. I recommend Diamond Studios to anyone interested in high quality video and film production and a professional working environment.

Bruce Reid
Partner, Reid/O'Donahue Advertising, Montgomery, AL

Over the years I’ve worked with production studios from here to yon. But none of them has ever equaled, much less exceeded, the unique blend of imagination, passion, craft, and patience that Diamond Studios routinely brings to projects both large and small. The fact that many of them won awards was secondary for me to the satisfaction of seeing the expressions on my client’s faces when they watched the finished product.

Dale Short,
Independent Broadcast Producer. Birmingham, AL

Chris is a highly organized and capable asset to any work environment. She is always on top of the many projects and deadlines she manages and excels in client services as well.

Productions are well-planned with attention to detail and yet she is always ready for the next unforeseen challenge.

Dean Benedict
Producer, Benedict and Associates, Birmingham, AL

I have witnessed the results of Diamond Studios work from 1991 until the present. Birmingham is fortunate to have a studio with the talent, skills and quality of Diamond Studios, a business that is equivalent to what you would find in Atlanta, New York or LA. I have seen Joe, Chris and other staff members evolve from shooting award winning television commercials (which they still do) to creating web based applications for advertisements, training and development, documentaries, biographies, general dissemination of information and multiple points in between. I have used their products both personally and professionally and will continue to do so as they not only produce the quality I expect, but they also work with clients to find affordable solutions without compromising quality. I highly recommend them for anyone, nation-wide, looking to get a message out to the masses or the few.

Lana Guess Thompson
Consultant, Lana Guess Thompson Consulting, Birmingham, AL

Chris is always professional, efficient, organized and always delivers in a very kind manner, which is very appealing and refreshing. We LOVE doing business with Diamond. Joe is wonderful too.

She is one of the best, no doubt about it!

Jeff McKee
Dept of Theater, University of Alabama, Birmingham, AL

Chris is one of those people who exhibits a positive, upbeat, can-do attitude no matter what the situation. I love presenting a situation to her and listening to how her mind works on finding affordable, effective solutions. Working with Chris is what the word “team” is all about. She neither demands nor acquiesces. She works “with” you until the task is done, laid to rest, or creatively evolved toward a more viable direction.

Lana Guess Thompson
Consultant, Lana Guess Thompson Consulting, Birmingham, AL

I worked with Chris for several years while we were previously employed together. Chris is very detail-oriented, creative, and gives the utmost attention to any task before her. She has been instrumental in many areas of political campaigns, marketing, fundraising, and support to her peers. All of which requires her to be a trustworthy, people-person. She is a pleasure to work with and very passionate about her work. I am glad to still be acquainted with Chris and appreciate the friendship we have built over the years.

There’s an old adage that if you want something done right, hire a woman. If there exists a woman who can spin plates and juggle bowling balls, it’s Chris. I have been truly blessed to be hired as a voice talent on her many projects since 2008, and let me warn you that her energy and enthusiasm are highly contagious! Dedicated, driven, and detail-oriented, she’s a consummate professional and your go-to gal. I emphatically and highly recommend Chris to produce your next project.

Chris is so organized it is amazing. And did I say talented? She is so well suited for the position she holds. She is also a people person. And did I say talented? Ask her sometime what she did before Diamond Studios. You will see why she is so talented.
