Zan Media spent a year videotaping many of my most exciting special events for non-profits and corporate clients, and then created a very beautiful DVD that I send to prospective clients all over the world. Not only have I increased business but the caliber of business as well. My DVD has a very high end perceived value – but in fact, the price was very reasonable.— Ricardo Benevides, IDEAS Special Events Owner
Great looking commercials! Thank you.— Tony Zita, General Manager, Lexus of Marin
The writing is strong and the concept of a specific family’s bloodline provoking revenge from hell is very original and interesting. We also feel that you attain a great, eerie tone that works well for the story.— ROBERT ZEMECKIS, Director, (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump), feedback on screenplay
Kind of excited about the commercial. Thanks for all the help. Response has been great. Everywhere I go, I get nothing but positive comments.— BOB DOYLE, MARIN COUNTY SHERIFF

Working with Zan Media always helps me get the message across to my constituents. Chris and Don Scioli have fun, creative concepts that they make even better when translated to video. Zan Media’s work really works for me!— CYNTHIA MURRAY, FORMER MARIN COUNTY SUPERVISOR, PRES.&CEO NORTH BAY LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
Zan Media produced a recruitment video for us that allowed us to increase our qualified applicant pool from 15 to over 200 candidates! They get to the heart of what we are looking for, then get out in the field with us and translate our message to video. They also made the design and creation of the new Department web site hassle free – and the result is terrific!— DAN NORTHERN, NOVATO FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT DEPUTY CHIEF
When the chips were down, Zan Media, came through when I and my clients needed them. Zan compiled a series of videos and still photographs regarding a major automobile accident into one first class CD. Their concept was that the CD would serve as both a visual aide for my introductory remarks at mediation while doing double duty as a graphic accompaniment to my opening presentation to the jury. The result was a successful mediation where the issue of liability was taken off to the table, with all parties then focusing on what I regarded as the main point: the evaluation of the plaintiff's substantial damage claims.— DICK SPOTSWOOD JACOBS, SPOTSWODD & CASPER, LLP
I'm so glad you and the Zan crew were there to capture the moment. Love, love, love your work and working with you!— DORA WONG, PUBLIC AFFAIRS AND COMMUNICATIONS, COCA-COLA REFRESHMENTS
I use Zan Media to produce my patient information videos, television commercials and infomercials, television programming and web sites. They make it easy; they get the job done quickly and meticulously while making my patients feel very comfortable. Video adds that third dimension of sight, sound and motion that print or radio alone can’t do."— DR. PETER PANAGOTACOS, THE SAN FRANCISCO DERMATOLOGY CENTER
Zan Media’s TV commercials accounted for sell outs of two of our models stock, the Jaguar X-type and the Land Rover Freelander in less than a month.— FRED CZISKA, GENERAL MANAGER, MARIN LUXURY CARS
I have to say we are pleased with the results of the ads. We also reduced our newspaper activity (smaller and more frequent - daily in the Marin IJ) at the same time, we do believe that the TV ads have had a significant impact on our foot traffic and invoice counts. A number of clients have mentioned them, and feedback has been positive.— GEOFF WESTERFIELD, PARTNER, MARIN MAC SHOP
I’ve hired Zan Media to produce political campaign commercials for many years. Television is the extra dimension that I have all my candidates use – and most of them consider television a very important integer in their victories! Because of television, Santa Rosa was only the third city among 28 in California to defeat the national Fireworks Industry by banning fireworks sales!— HERB WILLIAMS, DELPHI TEAM OWNER
The commercials look great!— JASON KLUMB, AREA DIRECTOR, SEIU 1021
Just a quick note to say that I think ‘A State of Vine’ is a beautifully crafted work. It is, perhaps, the best documentary I have seen about our world of wine. Congratulations on a job well done.— JAYME SILVA, ROBERT BIALE VINEYARDS
Using television advertising for our White Sale event brought in 7 direct sales of vehicles over a weekend.— JIM SILVEIRA, OWNER, SILVEIRA BUICK/PONTIAC/GMC
Thanks for your great follow through, your attention to detail, and good humor. I think you’re great. This is a victory for Zan Media that produced movie-quality TV ads.— JUDY ARNOLD, MARIN COUNTY SUPERVISOR
It's great! You all do excellent work.— KATIE RICE, MARIN COUNTY SUPERVISOR

Oh, how charming. It's campy and it's informative and your filmmaking illustrated it so perfectly! What a hoot! You Sciolis are the BEST!— LESLIE HARLIB, MUSICIAN
Happy New Year to you and your talented team. The video is wonderful. It was a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to more in 2014.— LYNNE DEVERUX, LAURA CHENEL'S CHEVE & MARIN FRENCH CHEESE
Over the last few years I have had the good fortune to meet you both and become familiar with your passionate, thought provoking and artful video production. I am not the least surprised that you apply the same kin dof care and commitment into protecting the environment that you do in producing films.— MARK LENO, CALIFORNIA STATE SENATOR, 3rd DISTRICT
They liked it a lot. Most common comment was that it was "fun". This is a major accomplishment since "fun" and "sewage" aren't naturally found together. My take is that you did a great job and your service and speed is even better than great. I have really enjoyed working with you and look forward to more opportunities.— MARTIN RAUCH, RAUCH COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANTS INC.
The auction was phenomenal. Everyone thought the video was great as well. We received numerous comments. Also, we raised $220,000 from the auction which was about $82,000 over what we expected!.— MONTINE FELSO, SAN FRANCISCO OPERA GUILD, DIRECTOR OF EVENTS
Your good will and genuine caring and giving persona is what drew me to Zan Media years ago, and is so much appreciated! Thanks for everything.— PAUL HAAKENSON, MARIN COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE
