About Mike Swarbrick:



Hey Mr. Mike!

Your film was brilliant and a joy to watch. What wonderful memories!

You are a doll to help me with some of your great shots.


Valerie Pringle.



Your contributions were big on the mountain where it counted.

You were the confident friend and continual good company that helps to see a successful expedition to the end. You were valued. I'm certainly glad for the day Ben said "c'mon Mike... join us..." I'm one who thought that was one of his best decisions.

Dave McIlvride. Director, Discovery Channel Canada's "Ultimate Survival Everest" Series


..."We at Canadian Adventure Productions Inc. have been lucky enough to have Mike work with us on a number of different major multimedia projects. Mike's responsibilities included filming, editing, and transmitting video segments for television (i.e., A Channel). I can speak first hand to Mike's professionalism. He was always collaborative, insightful and reliable. In every instance, Mike showed a tremendous work ethic and visual talent. I recommend him with the utmost confidence.

Yours truly, Ben Webster, Canadian Adventure Productions Inc.


...Mike Swarbrick and Mainstream Media Services have produced video and performed video editing for the fire service on numerous occasions. I have worked with Mike on several projects for over 10 years.  I have found Mike's work to be excellent and would recommend him without hesitation.

Hi Mike

I have no problem giving you a strong referral for the video work you did for Leslie & I for our 50th birthdays. I'm not sure where the 10 years has gone since you originally prepared the VCR tape format that you were able to transfer to DVD last year. You made the process easy with us supplying the photos & you put together the 2 family histories of the first 50 years for each of us. You also asked us for a few song selections that you edited into the 12 minute productions that were made 1 year apart from each other .The end results are 2 great DVD's that we can pull out periodically to relive our past. Now our grandkids are at a point where they like to see them occasionally as well. They are great keepsakes.

Many thanks

Tom Howarth, C.A


Hi, Mike:

 I had to write and tell you what a huge success the video was. The final product not only exceeded my expectations, but made an incredible impression on the audience, judging by their response. Your storyboard suggestions and expert editing were brilliant, resulting in a seamless, well organized presentation.

 You are a true pro, Mike, and I look forward to working with you again on the next project.

We just watched the DVD. It's great, the quality of your camera work and the sound is so good. Thanks again,


Hi Mike.

Your first article is wonderful. I recall your journals from last year. I really look forward to following your entries.
