“Since 1989 Ernie Sprance has continued to provide Spoken Arts with the very best in creative, post production video editing services. HIs professional skills are top drawer...from the moment a project enters his studio to final form. Ernie also has the uncanny ability to sense when the timing of an edit feels 'off'' ...and contributes input that makes for a better project. I would recommend Ernie to any producer or production company looking for the absolute best for their next project. Dan Welsh, President Spoken Arts, Inc.”
“Ernie Sprance is an innovator. While at Consumer Reports, his 'Report to Consumers' daily feature was one of the most listened to daily radio programs in the US. Ernie's high standards both on and off the air were very evident as Report to Consumers grew in terms of station affiliates and weekly audience as a result of his leadership.”Consumer Reports
"Ernie brings an energy with him everywhere he goes--he is a master audio specialist, and watching him in the audio booth is a fun experience. He's an excellent teacher, and taught me everything I know about audio and video editing. He will do everything from building a set to recording a voice-over to creating an inspiring video montage. Not to mention, he's extremely timely, considerate, helpful and can always make you laugh. A true gem of colleague.”Consumer Reports
