"We had thirty hours to produce a twenty-five minute political documentary
about Mayoral candidate Matt Ryan from over six hours of video feed. Cris
made it all possible, giving us the patient, professional counsel and
technical excellence that we desperately needed one week before the election.
Even better, the film was an influential hit, and Binghamton now has a
progressive mayor."-- Tarik Abdelazim
"Cris McConkey worked diligently for the Burmese community of Ithaca
in videotaping and editing a complex event, the June 19, 2005 Burmese
Democracy Day in Ithaca, which featured numerous speakers, a slide show,
displays, and a replica of a Burmese prison in which several people were
being held. We are very grateful for Cris's help and the excellent result
-- two versions of a DVD, complete with titles, display package, and fine
editing." -- Maura Stephens, Han Lin, and Maung Maung Tate for the
Burmese community of Ithaca, New York
"Cris McConkey is an excellent cameraman and technician. I have
had the pleasure of working with him on several occasions, the most recent
being an April, '05, panel discussion which Roger Gilbert and I arranged
in honor of the work of the poet, A.R. Ammons. Mr. McConkey also did the
videotaping of a presentation which I gave at Cornell's Sage Chapel in
November of '04. Cris's work, in each endeavor, was very professional.
After skillful editing, the tapes and DVD's he produced were outstanding.
He was also quite helpful in making still shots available for local media."
