Few people get the Experience Economy as much as Bill Gibeault, and fewer still can combine an ear for storytelling, an eye for video production, and a heart for experience work.
B. Joseph Pine, Co-founder Strategic Horizons, Aora, Ill, Co-author, The Experience Economy
There is only one firm and one person in my experience that have been able to capitalize on many years of successful video production, the ability to create captivating experiences and the talent to tell stories in an emotional and charismatic way. The firm is Story Mavericks and the person is its President, Bill Gibeault.
Raymond O’Conor, Chairman, Saratoga National Bank & Trust Co.
I have been inundated with positive comments about the program we presented at the event in October. Let’s face it: the program we presented at the event was essentially your video segments. The response has simply been phenomenal!

After watching this year’s “Arongen All-Stars” video the kids yelled, “Encore, we want to see it again.” What a way to end the year. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating this special gift that the kids will cherish for a long time. And, also, I thank you for your generosity you show us each year. YOU ARE THE BEST!

I wanted to let you know of all the positive responses we have gotten to our Good Scout Award Dinner we had last week for Philly Dake. Everyone I spoke with was just astounded by the fantastic job the two of you did on the video. As I walked into the office the day after the event, those who didn’t attend had heard how great it was and how there wasn’t a dry eye in the house after the video. They all wanted to see it.
Kevin B. Lane, Sr. District Executive, Boy Scouts Of America
Your technical and creative expertise, coupled with your ability to bring out the best in the interviewees (not to mention your patience with us!) are the reasons why we have such a good, useful product for our students.
Susan Oaks, Ph.D.,Empire State College, State University of New York
Bill understands what needs to be done to create compelling experiences for customers. His extensive knowledge of the subject would be helpful to any business. He is a geniune and hard working person who is passionate about his work.
Greg Dixon, Vice President, Wesley Foundation
In addition to the excellent quality of the product (everything from script writing, music, sound effects and visuals), I wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure working with you both. You always went out of your way to accommodate my schedule and were always prompt in meeting deadlines. Now that all is said and done (at least until we start our next project), I know I made the right choice selecting your company for our project.
Raymond O’Conor, President, Wilton Global Job Development Corp.
The quality of the work you do speaks for itself, but let me commend you on some of what happened behind the scenes. Details Details, Details You attended to every concern, every idea, every facet of the process incredibly well. By gathering, organizing, and following up on all those details I felt confident the job would be well done and I would have no regrets. I have no regrets.
Creative. Your creative approach to both the artistic aspects as well as the vital “real world” application were remarkable through the process.
The Extra Mile. I feel like there wasn’t anything you could have done that you didn’t do, and in many cases, I feel you extended yourself far beyond my expectations.
Mark A. Small, President, Silent Partner Group, Inc.
I thought it would be difficult to adequately recognize an athletic program that has won fourteen state and six national championships. I was not sure if we could capture the essence of this team and the young women who have worked to hard to achieve these results. Your work has far surpassed my greatest expectations though. The fashion in which you captured the personality and emotion of this team left no dry eyes in the theater during the films premier.
I also want to compliment you on all the extras that went into this production. The flexibility you showed with your time and the level of creativity with editing and music that you exhibited were over the top. You put your heart and soul into this project and it is evident in the results.
Ray O’Conor, President, Saratoga Cross Country Booster Club
I am writing this letter to express how supremely pleased we are with your work on the promotional video for the 2004 United States Submarine Veterans Association Annual Conference.
From the start, you organized the production schedule, conducted key interviews, and kept to our deadlines. However that doesn’t even begin to tell the story. It is an understatement for me to say you went above and beyond our expectations. Your ability to “get it” and to know what we needed our video to accomplish was uncanny. Your willingness to film interviews off-site at the military museum, to spend countless hours editing and developing our piece combined with your technical competence made this process a joy for me.
My board of directors that include 20 of Saratoga’s captains of industry was floored by the production. It has also been shown to the Albany-Saratoga Sub Base and to the County Board of Supervisors, again to rave reviews.
Bill, I am left filled with a sense of gratitude that simply paying the tab doesn’t do enough to consummate our work together. Please accept my thanks and know that I have a deep respect for your talent and your company.
Gavin B. Landry, Executive Director (FMR), Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau
I have had the opportunity to work with Bill Gibeault on various projects in the Saratoga Community. Bill is not only very professional in his approach, but extremely easy to work with. From the start of any given project, Bill will take the effort to drill down to understand the precise nature of the project and the goals it is trying to achieve. As a client, you can rely on his expertise and his experience to infuse his artistic skills to produce a compelling video/music content that will meet and exceeded your expectations. It is with great confidence that I recommend Bill Gibeault’s abilities to promote, inform and advance your organization’s message through his video/music productions.
Bill produced an excellent DVD celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Saratoga Springs Lions Club. Bill’s work not only made us appreciate the great diversity in our 100 member club, but also our common bonds and commitment to bettering our community. His DVD has been successfully used to recruit new club members. I would highly recommend Bill for his professionalism and his ability to find and to tell a story,

In the past Bill has produced numerous documentaries and informational video productions for the Saratoga Springs Lions Club, for which I am a member, and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce of which I am a Past Chairman. The quality of Bill’s work is unsurpassed. Bill, in his creative way, is able to capture the mood very well. Whether it be the emotion for a club member or relaying the feelings of a community towards volunteerism. His professionalism shines through and I would highly recommend Bill and his company.

Bill has done extreamly good work for us a number of times. He is well coordinated in his time management and keeps to the deadline for presentation. Everyone that viewed his work was very impressed.
Phil Klein, Adirondack Trust Insurance
Bill is a perfectionist. He created several amazing videos for the Saratoga Springs Lions Club and the Lions Eye Institute. His creative eye captures the moment, he continues to keep editing until it is perfect, and what a superb writer. I would highly recommend him for your next project.
Connie Larkin, CCIM
I’ve initially came to know Bill Gibeault through our thinkAbout event. Then he became a Pine & Gilmore Certified Expert and I really got to know him through that week-long course — and a follow-up visit to his office. His office (like stepping on the production floor of a film studio), like his inged CE application (wow, was it inged — it came complete with a mutli-sensory cues to set-up and take in while reading his application), exemplfy his commitment and passion for designing compelling experiences. Especially if you’re looking for someone with a eye for multi-media, Bill’s a great resource.
