Testimonials

Working with the dynamic Staff at the DJD Theater has been beyond amazing! Working with their team has been a sweet satisfaction of creative and productive excellence that provided a safe space for my vision 'GRAFFICA' to come forth. They are exceedingly kind and professional, detail-oriented, and pay attention to the needs of every person involved in the project. Everything I needed they provided and more. They have set a standard for my expectations when producing future projects. I look forward to creating more magic with this phenomenal team.​

I very much enjoyed working with everyone with ArtWorks@TheDJD on Vanderwaal's Journey. This project blossomed with their help and understanding. Every step of the way, they made sure that my team and I had everything we needed to really bring our vision to life. I'm looking forward to more opportunities to work with the DJD.

I was so thankful to work with a group of people who really allowed me to make all the choices I wanted artistically and were flexible and up for an adventure. They literally dragged equipment out to bluff faces and boulder fields and were committed to getting the perfect footage. They are a fun yet professional group committed to allowing me to roll out my idea exactly how I envisioned it. I had a great time with the DJD!
