Recommendations

“Machia has the intellectual capacity of an entire Ivy League School. For those who know what I’m talking about, you know that it can be difficult to contain such exuberance, creativity and passion. Shaun Machia is one of those creators who, if truly measured, will blur the distinction between reality and make believe in one fell swoop. Hire him and pay him time and a half. You will get double your money’s worth. -Patrick Ross

Owner – Rock Farmer Records”

Patrick Ross, managed Shaun at Rock Farmer Records

“Shaun Machia has always been a strong workhorse in my stable of well qualified and dedicated motion designers. With years behind him as a fine artist Shaun has always brought a different design approach that complimented my commercial design background greatly. My clients have always benefited from his punctuality and dutiful work, and I have always marveled at his superior design skills. I highly recommend Shaun Machia for any post production services you might have. You won’t be disappointed.”
