Randy Durham has been a pleasure to work with. I am Chad Merritt with Merritt Marine in Hillsborough, NC. We are Triumph Boats first and largest dealer in the world. Randy purchased a Triumph Boat several years ago and a long lasting business/friendship relationship began. He built our website (MerrittMarine.com) and provided the ultimate website for Triumph Boat Owners (Triumphowners.net)! The services he provides have been invaluable. With almost all research now being done over the internet, I know our business would not be as successful without Randy's help. He is a class guy that works hard and always returns a phone call. He produces great websites and high quality DVDs for instructional information on the products we sell. There is no one else that compares!! Thanks for your services Randy.– Chad Merritt, Merritt Marine

It has been my joy and privilege to know Randy Durham for all of his ministry career to date. I have watched him grow and develop into one of the most creative and competent people in the entire media industry. I have also had the opportunity to travel abroad with him numerous times in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean to document ministry projects. He has always proven himself to be flexible and adaptable under the challenging situations of underdeveloped countries, cultures and contexts. Most of all, he has an interpersonal sensitivity that quickly endears himself to the people he is working with - regardless of their status in life. Randy makes all equally comfortable through his quick smile, disarming humor and Christian love and compassion.– Dr. J. L. Williams, JL, Patt and Friends, Inc

I've worked with Randy in the same communications group, as well as side by side on projects. I've also worked for him as a client; designing brand identities, video graphics and trade show displays. He is as great to work with as a client as he is as a co-creator. I highly recommend Randy for your next project.– Jeff Bowman, Creative Director, Bowman Creative

I just viewed the Thanksgiving video that arrived in the mail yesterday. It truly caught the heartbeat of BCH, and will catch the heartbeat of those who view it. It was absolutely superb…outstanding…magnificent… in every way. I can’t wait to show it to our staff…as a matter of fact I am calling everyone to the office this morning so they can view it. This was “real and in touch”… You can see it in the children’s faces, in Dr. Blackwell’s eyes and voice, and emotions and as a result of what we have at BCH it not only changes the children’s lives, but the lives of the staff. I guess what I am trying to say is that you could “feel the love, the care, the spiritual environment”. God bless you for this blue ribbon presentation……this tribute…….to 125 years of helping those hurting children.– Linda Morgan, Director, Western Area Family Services, Baptist Children's Homes of NC

Randy is professional, detailed, and quick to respond with answers and updates to the website. I would be glad to work with Randy on any future projects.– Martha Surratt, Developmental Disabilities Ministry, Baptist Children's Homes of NC
Randy Durham is the ultimate professional. He will go out of his way to make sure his clients are satisfied. I have known and worked with Randy since 1985. He has produced three video programs for our ministry over the years along with several promo tapes. I am constantly told that my "Everyone Is NOT Doing It" abstinence education series Randy produced is one of the finest, high quality programs available for schools, churches, and youth organizations! Randy is caring, trustworthy, and reliable. That is why I continuously return to him whenever I need quality production work. I highly recommend him!– Mike Long, M.L. Productions, Inc
For many years Randy Durham has produced tremendously inspiring videos for North Carolina Baptist Hospital's Mother's Day Offering, a ministry of benevolent care from churches of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. The videos present stories of recipients in clear and moving ways, demonstrating the financial needs of patients who are helped and their profound gratitude. Randy's deeply held faith in Christ strengthens his technical and creative capacities, allowing him to clearly communicate the spiritual significance of this ministry. The feedback we receive from churches about the videos has been very positive, and the Offering continuously grows. Much of that growth is due to the high quality of Randy's work. We plan to continue our relationship with Credence Pictures for years to come due to our confidence and trust in Randy.– Paul Mullen, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center
I have worked with Randy on a variety of projects and I am always extremely pleased with the results.

Before I retired from NC State University as Executive Director of Creative Services, I worked with Randy many times over the years, from his early years as a student, through various business affiliations. I have always found Randy to be a true professional, extremely knowledgeable about his craft, but even more importantly, a truly fine person, true-to-his-word, honest and absolutely reliable. I can highly recommend Randy for any endeavor though his world-wide experience speaks for itself!– Ron Kemp, former Executive Director, NCSU Creative Services
We tasked Credence Pictures with creating a two-minute video which captured not only what we do as a company, but “who we are”. Translating the latter through video is no small feat, so we were extremely delighted that Randy and Warren were able to articulate our message through this medium, in my opinion, more powerfully than words.– Scott McHugh, Precision Materials LLC
For over twenty years Randy Durham has raised the level of video production in the Triangle through his professionalism, attention to detail and high production values. I've seen his work develop since the late '80s from good to excellent to superior, so his clients should feel fortunate to have caught Randy in the prime of his craft. I can offer no higher recommendation than Randy's direction in the field, his eye behind the camera and his decisions in the editing bay. Don't take my word for it, the proof is in his programs. 10 out of 10.– Scott Pearson, Influence Music Publishing
