My experience working with OneRiver Media has been extremely positive, particularly in the areas of productivity, creativity, and working relationship. I have worked with the company since about 2006, on a variety of size and scope projects.
For productivity, OneRiver Media gets high marks in consistently bringing in projects on time, on budget, and delivering quality work.
For creativity, I have relied on their expertise in areas of flash and video to make creative recommendations and designs that have been consistently impressive and impacting. And I have developed a great working relationship with them that is distinguished by trust, honesty, and dependability.

Access Video Productions
I have been working on projects with OneRiver Media since the late 1990’s and have benefited greatly from being able to include their work in my productions. From the demonstration of an intricate medical device to dramatic movie special effects to short animations for locally broadcast commercial spots, OneRiver Media has done it all.
First of all, I find the quality of their work to be absolutely beyond reproach. In fact, owner, Marco Solorio seems driven to find the equipment required to produce the “perfect image”. To this end he has researched and tested the hardware and software elements of digital video production to the point that he fast became a recognized expert in the field of codecs, their strengths and weaknesses, and the best hardware on which to use them.
But Marco’s talents are not limited to technical excellence; he has a quick, creative mind, finding innovative solutions to some of my most challenging needs in regard to the illustrations required for the stories we tell. OneRiver Media has repeatedly taken my vision, interpreted and improved upon it, and returned with animations beyond my expectations.
Finally, and probably most importantly, they are fun to work with. They enjoy brainstorming a project and I believe derive sincere pleasure in successfully turning a producer’s concepts into beautifully rendered images.

San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, Director of Operations & Production
Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media has been an integral part of many projects for the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus since 2017. He has done design and video work for our annual benefit Crescendo, numerous SFGMC performances, and even assisted us throughout the pandemic in producing video performances and digital content for our SFGMCTV YouTube channel. When we approached him with the idea to build a video streaming system so singing members with COVID-19 could still follow along and review chorus rehearsals from home, he guided us on what to buy, how to build it, and even trained us on how to use it. I fully endorse and encourage anyone considering hiring him for their projects, as his professionalism and quality of work is unmatched. I honestly cannot say enough how amazing it is that Marco has become part of our consultant team and has continued to create cutting edge digital media for us!

I have had the pleasure to work with OneRiver Media on a number of occasions, on a variety of media, communications and 3D animation projects. Marco and his team of professionals have outstanding experience in the visual and creative arts, as well as an uncanny knowledge of technology, presentation and delivery platforms.
From my perspective as a Producer, this combination provides for a seamless integration of images and technology that not only saves time, but also preserves and enhances the quality of the end product.
I can’t recommend OneRiver Media highly enough and look forward to working them again on my next project.

As a producer I am constantly looking to populate my team of ‘go to’ guys to help me out. The guys at OneRiver Media are quite simply it. Capital I. Capital T. Their knowledge base is huge, their client skills are impeccable, and their deliveries are always on time and beyond expectations.
OneRiver Media looks out for me and my clients. When you’re there, they take care of you. Really what more could you want?

Marco Solorio (owner of OneRiver Media) is unmatched in his expertise and creativity. I can’t imagine that in this digital age that there is anything he doesn’t know — but if he doesn’t know something he will step-up, find out the facts, and then of course in “Marco Style” become an expert at it.
I have used Marco on numerous projects and he always makes me look great! He is easy to work with, has great ideas, and knows how to put the facts on the table that will lead to a great result. Of course I have to mention his sense of humor. Marco knows how to work hard and play hard. He brings a sense of play to our work that allows for a comfortable flow of ideas and unique expression. Although he might be smarter than everyone else in the room, he moves with a graceful spirit that acknowledges everyone’s contribution. If you look up “sui generis” in the dictionary, you are likely to find Marco’s photo there.

Very simply stated, Marco Solorio and OneRiver Media create magic. It has been my good fortune to have worked with Marco on multiple projects since 2017. Most importantly, Marco understands great story-telling and has the skills to bring both music-making and the back-story to life. His vision for each project is extraordinary and his attention to detail makes each project a great experience. Most of all, everyone loves working with Marco.

OneRiver Media goes the extra mile for my clients, and for me.

When we need top quality graphics we always turn to OneRiver Media. They have been a contributing factor in our success since 1997. Their attention to detail and creative executions have always been a pleasure to experience.
Since the early 2000’s, I have had the honor of working with OneRiver Media on a number of projects and ventures. Marco Solorio‘s work is not only first-class but his incredible range and depth of talents give him insights and offerings that take any project far beyond ordinary or commonplace.
Marco is one of the most talented and yet gracious people I have met over the years and his sense of humor is contagious. He is that odd human being who is both a focused driving force that gets the job done as quickly as possible, and is yet one of the funniest people you will ever meet. Working with Marco is fun, no doubt about it.
His keen eye, his knowledge of how to find the emotional connection to the audience, his understanding of one of the widest range of talents and techniques — including pre- and post-production, lighting, cinematography, music creation and editing and many other areas of production — make Marco one of the go-to people I trust when things need to get done and done to a high level of professionalism.
I joke that Marco is a man with talent to burn. Those who know him know that I am not really joking. He is one of the most gifted and yet gracious people I have ever met.
Over the years, we have become friends. I count that as a high honor because Marco is above all of it, a wonderful human being with a kind heart and a ready smile.

OneRiver Media has provided a myriad of media services for me at a number of companies, from Silicon Valley start-ups to broadcast television.

When we turn over a project to OneRiver Media, it’s just total confidence in the outcome… even excitement! And that’s a great feeling to have.
As an independent producer with a variety of needs, from interactive media to photo-realistic visual effects, services that integrate seamlessly with the project’s demands are critical. At times, I am crystal clear on those requirements and other times a basic idea is handed off that needs to be embellished.
In either case, my expectations have always been exceeded.
On a number of occasions, I’ve come to OneRiver Media with very strange requests (no pun intended) and they have taken the job in stride, run with the idea, met some improbable deadlines and answered the call, all within budget.
"OneRiver Media have met some improbable deadlines and answered the call, all within budget."
Talk about good hands! No project I ever took or sent to OneRiver Media wasn’t significantly improved by their creativity, effort and technical savvy.
San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, Associate Director of Music Education & Outreach
Marco Solorio is truly the top of the line in his industry. We're so lucky to have had so many projects that we worked on together with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus (SFGMC). One of the things I admire the most about Marco is how he always goes above and beyond asking because of his passion and belief in our organization and the work we do. It's the small details that Marco always took that set him above anyone we've worked with before and made the final product one that we were always so proud to present. During the height of the pandemic, I had the pleasure of producing and editing multiple SFGMC virtual performances alongside Marco. Every single project he took the extra time to add fun little effects to the work beyond what we had asked because he wanted to be sure it was the best it could be. On top of his talent, Marco is just an all around wonderful human being, very sociable and with a heart of gold. When we have a project and we want to make sure it is done well, we without a doubt, turn immediately to Marco for his passion, drive, and artist eye.

Marco Solorio, owner of OneRiver Media, is hands down the most talented person that I know. I am very fortunate to have been able to work alongside OneRiver Media in the past. Marco’s work is simply unparalleled, yet he balances everything with a grace and ease that makes him a pleasure to be around.
His software product, “Media Batch” by Cinesoft, is a perfect example of what his technical knowledge and creativity are capable of bringing to the table. Not only is it one of the greatest developments for the media industry, but I don’t know how I would get by without it.

Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media is a very talented computer graphics artist and a load of fun to work with. He’s up on all the latest changes in video & CGI technology and has been a great resource to me. He also puts up with my unreasonable requests and impossible deadlines, which is critical for producers like myself.

What are the reasons I thoroughly enjoy recording my voiceovers with Marco at OneRiver Media? How much time do you have? All you have to do is walk into his studio to realize "This is where things get done!" Marco's attention to detail, and steadfast desire to make the client happy make me feel like I'm working with a real pro. New technology? Well, Marco's way ahead of the curve on every level. I couldn't recommend Marco and OneRiver Media highly enough.
