Our experience with Erin Berg and the rest of the Fox 47 staff has been outstanding. We also had the opportunity to work with Mark Stuart on the production side. Mark was fantastic to work with, from shooting the footage on site to putting the final touches on the ads themselves.

TALK BLOCK “THREESOME”
-Sean O’Boyle, Executive Vice President and General Sales Manager for Domestic Television Distribution · NBCUniversal Media, New York, NY
This is without a doubt the best "block" promo I have seen. Give this person an award!
-Arthur Hasson, COO Programming, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Baltimore, MD
Diane Baj here (rep from NBCU in Chicago )… wanted to reach out and give you all HUGE kudos on this fantastic spot. It has gotten internal attention over here at NBC so wanted to reach out and make sure you all realize what a dynamite promo this is.
-Diane Baj, VP Midwest Sales, NBC Universal, Chicago, IL
I would like to thank Mark Stuart for an excellent job. You always take great care, as if it was your business. I appreciate your technical ability. I was unaware of all the things you could do digitally at your office. My commercials always look better than I expected!

THE GROUND AUG
I want to thank FOX 47 and especially Mark Stuart for the fine work he did for me in August. Mark shot an instructional video of one of our products for me to use at trade shows. He took three hours of video and re-shot scenes when he felt the light was not just right. He also took the script that I gave him and followed it exactly the way I wanted it done.
His experience is obvious to me since he seemed to know what I wanted. His editing was exceptional; fitting everything into a one minute video, and he delivered the tapes to me in time for me to use them the following weekend.
The first show we did with the video was a success and I can honestly say that the video paid for itself the first time we used it. I will certainly call upon Mark again when we are ready to launch our next product.

ROCKY ROCOCO PIZZA
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Fox 47 TV production crew for their excellent work and the last three Rocky Rococo TV ads. We are very pleased with the ads, and we look forward to working with you on future shoots.
John Murray and Mark Stuart have provided invaluable support in both the development and the production of the advertisements. The team has been
highly prepared for all shoots and edits, keeping the process running smoothly and efficiently. It was particularly helpful that they prepared concepts for the ads in advance to shooting and editing.
Again, it has been our sincere pleasure working on these ads with your production team. The quality of John and Mark's work has been outstanding, as have their levels of professionalism and organization. Please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for your exemplary work on our and our client's behalf.
-Ted Knupp. President. Knupp & Watson Advertising Agency, Madison, WI
John and Mark did a great job on the spots. I really enjoy working with them as they add a lot to the production with their advice and expertise. Plus, Mark is one of the first editors I've worked
with who actually checks grammar, spelling, capitalization and punctuation! YAY!!! That is a relief, believe me! Please pass my accolades on to them.
-Ellen Burliegh, Owner, Media Services Advertising Agency, Madison, WI
Mark Stuart is an experienced and highly professional television producer. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mark on and off since 1993. Mark has extensive experience in television production over the past 25+ years and has kept pace with the many advancements and changes during that time. He has a great can-do attitude, is always willing to help, and works hard to complete projects thoroughly and in a timely fashion.
-Eric J. Krieghoff, VP & General Manager, WMSN-TV, Fox 47, Madison, WI
I worked with Mark at WMSN. During this 4-year span, Mark Stuart was 1 of 2 producers of client advertiser commercials. He CARED about his craftwork and his clients and it showed in his work. I never heard a single client-advertiser complaint nor do I recall Mark EVER taking a sick day. He was reliable and consistent in his production efforts. Were I in the market to hire a producer/artist I would absolutely hire Mark Stuart. He is the consummate professional. Most importantly, you should know that I treat recommendations very seriously. Mark worked for and received this.
-John DeSimone, Consultant, former General Manager, Fox 47
Not only does Mark finish projects and tasks timely, his work is fantastic. A few years ago, he was nominated and won a Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Award for Best Commercial for Harley Davidson of Madison. He took the client’s idea and really made his own version that could be easily executed with a small team of four actors and two producers.
One of the biggest changes and adaptations Mark has shown in the past few years is that he has taken on a more Digital Production role. He has embraced creating Digital Web Banners of all sizes and has thoroughly enjoyed a
different side of Creativity. It is unfortunate for Sinclair Broadcast Group, that due to economic constraints and the Coronavirus Pandemic, we must restructure our organization and lose valued employees such as Mark. I would recommend him without reservation for any position or career that he may choose to pursue.
-Linda Nguyen Hart, Creative Services Director, Fox 47
Mark excels in all areas with a great amount of success, management and integrity. With time-management capability combined with a high-level of skill in production, Mark is counted on with little supervision. His knowledge of clients, as well as the local area is continually counted on to make the production department a stronger unit. His professionalism is evident when working with all internal staff, as well as a multitude of clients.
Mark has shown continual improvement in overall product and operational procedures when it comes to adjusting to new equipment and client requests. He helped to spearhead the transition to our new equipment and quickly became our subject matter expert on the camera and new HP Editor, working diligently and efficiently through each issue that would arise. His work with clients is excellent to the point where some would call me up and be sure to mention him by-name that they were looking forward to working with him.
-Ryan Wagner, Executive Producer, Television Station Manager & Studio Director, City of Charlotte, NC; former Creative Services Manager, Fox 47
Mark has been a hard working teammate for decades. Anybody would be lucky to have him on board.
-David Ford, President-General Manager Clear Channel Outdoor, Milwaukee; former General Manager, Fox 47
I highly recommend Mark Stuart for his writing, shooting, editing and producing skills. He is resourceful, creative and capable of meeting all expectations and deadlines. Mark would be an asset to any organization.
-Audra Johnson, Marketing and Communications Specialist, Floor 360, Madison, WI; former Promotion Manager, Fox 47
Mark is a pleasure to work with and his reliability is a great asset. His productivity and technical efficiency are vital to production department’s success.
-John Murray, Commercial Writer-Producer-Editor at Morgan Murphy Media Inc., WISC TV 3, Madison, WI; former Creative Services Manager, Fox 47
Mark always did a terrific job in putting together creative ideas for commercial spots on our air. He is very professional and prompt and I really enjoyed working with him to increase revenue for the station for many years.
-Brian J. Riemer, Strategic Account Executive at Spectrum Enterprise, Madison, WI; former Account Executive, Fox 47
Mark was always a great help to me any time I needed production done. He was efficient, professional, and did quality work. I very much enjoyed working with him.
-Dave Piazza, Account Executive at NBC 15 WMTV, Madison, WI; former Account Executive, Fox 47
Not only is Mark a master with production equipment and processes, he has a wonderful, positive personality to boot. I would highly recommend Mark for any video project.
