Arianna, Peter & Kevin,

Thank you so much for your constant and unwavering support of Broadway Bares. It has been wonderful to have your support of time, attention and resources. We are so fortunate to have a friend like you. The LED provided by SenovvA has better equipped us to present diverse production values, as well as content that keeps our mission highly visible. This opportunity to communicate with our audience while providing a great show is the perfect combination of form and function.

We truly hope that we can continue to count on your support, and your incredibly wonderful team as exemplified by Ian Strimple! It is deeply meaningful to our production values, as well as to conveying the need to take care of each other as well as take care of people across the country.

Theatre InspiraTO Festival 2016

Dave,

The theatre inspiraTO festival 2016 was a huge success. It is now three years since SenovvA decided to become a sponsor and donated all the projection technology and professional advise for the festival. We would like to express our appreciation for all the ongoing commitment and support SenovvA is providing. Thanks to your help, inspiraTO festival became widely known for its digital set design and production. Most of our staged plays are written by American playwrights, who come to Toronto to see the their play on stage. Without exception, the digital set projection aspect of the staging is being highly praised…”as stunning”. The management of the Department of Visual & Performing Arts of Sheridan College and Theatre Operations, Uof T was so impressed that they decided to follow our example and asked us for assistance. So has Brott Opera in Hamilton, who reached out to theatre inspiraTO and SenovvA’s Dave Crainford and asked for assistance with the staging of La Boheme.

Broadway Bares 26

Arianna,

Thank you for making Broadway Bares 26: ON DEMAND, such a visually stunning endeavor. With your help, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS was able to raise a stunning $1,482,724. Your participation in this event not only helped to create a versatile, dynamic set for the theatrical show, but also allowed us the tools with which to present our organization to the audience.

With the LED screens you provided, we were at once: a charity showing the clientele who are recipients of donations, a party, a show, and a visual yearbook thanking our delightful volunteers. We appreciate how you help us grow, and we look forward to next year!

With gratitude,

Grease Live!

To My Grease Team,

Grease LIVE was one of the most satisfying shows of my 40 year career. Each one of you is responsible for changing the face of live musical television and you should be very proud of yourselves. I honestly think this was the very best crew assembled in television and the most outstandingly talented cast I have ever worked with.

I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you in the very near future… hopefully on the next groundbreaking project!

Until then, please take a bow! And thank you all for giving me the chance to work on a “show of a lifetime!”

Congratulations to you all!

Press Tour Winter 2015

Dave,

I just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you from Viacom. Everyone was so pleased with how the panels turned out and we absolutely could not have done this without you. Between 7 channels, 10 panels, a fiber feed from across the globe, and more panelists to count, you and the amazing team you set up made it happen flawlessly. Please send an amazing thank you to Tim for the fiber feed, Robyn for Lighting and just being an amazing, welcoming face, Pat on prompter, Wayne at audio, the awesome video engineer who ingested a new tape 30 minutes prior to our show and of course, the wonderful Mike Ross who can simply do no wrong.

This team makes coming back to TCA, tour after tour, so easy and delightful and I am always comforted knowing they can handle whatever gets thrown their way. With you as their leader, I know, all is well.

Thank you again for everything, Dave!

Elton John AIDS Foundation 2014

Kevin,

On behalf of all of us at the Elton John AIDS Foundation, thank you so much for participating in our Academy Awards Viewing Party earlier this month. We’re so grateful to you for helping to make this event such a wonderful success!

Our annual Oscar-Night Party is far and away the most important night of the year for the Foundation. As you know, every dollar that EJAF spends on grants and programs each year must be raised from our amazing donors and friends. The success of this event is crucial to setting the pace for our grant year and plays a very real role in determining what initiatives we will be able to support.

Your support means so much to the people who need our help the most. Through EJAF’s work, you are helping uninsured people living with HIV gain access to life-saving medications. You are ensuring that homeless gay teens can find a safe place to stay and receive medical and social services, job training, and a chance for a healthy and productive future. You are supporting legal action against prisons that deny medical care to HIV-positive inmates. You are sending positive messages to gay men across the nation, urging them to stay healthy.  You are doing all of this and so much more by supporting the Elton John AIDS Foundation. We would not exist without you.

It means so much to all of us that you were a part of this year’s Academy Awards Viewing Party. We are so grateful for your continued support of our work. The board and staff of the Elton John AIDS Foundation work every day to maximize the impact of your contributions, and we truly hope you are proud of everything we do together.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you at next year’s event, if not sooner!

Dave,

I’ve been assembling the viewing copy of our ASC Awards, and I wanted to send a huge thank you for the great work you did. You used the wild camera in front so well. I am amazed at how you employed three simple angles so thoughtfully, especially to enhance the host segments. And your live edit of the show with the QuBit elements was great.

Thanks to you and your guys for the tremendous contribution to our show.
