"As Community Chairman of Melodies of Christmas (a benefit for Albany Medical Center’s Child Cancer Program), I have worked with Bob English for 34 years. I have been witness to his creative talents and his incredible knowledge of so many aspects of broadcast television and video production. I have learned a lot from him.
When St. Peter’s wanted to create a 60-minute prime time broadcast of a live-multi-media presentation “Celebration of the Heart,” Luzerne Productions was the one I went to direct the taping of the show and the television edit. When it comes to televising a live show for later TV broadcast, there is no one else locally I would turn to.
Bob is equally talented in creating corporate video productions, b-roll for press conferences, and any other video or TV needs a company could have. He’s at home in any environment from the Board Room to the Operating Room.
At St. Peter’s, we also sponsor some television shows that Luzerne Productions produces. When Bob approaches me with an idea for a sponsorship, I listen.

Here at WNYT News Channel 13, we’ve found that we cannot go wrong when we use Luzerne Productions. The reason is simple – the talent of Bob English. Bob always maintains the highest standards for any production on which he works. Whether it’s a commercial, a documentary, a full-scale live program, or a corporate video, if Bob is involved, I know it will be a first class effort.”
“Bob has strong creative instincts, but also listens to the client very carefully, to ascertain their goals for a project. Based on what I have seen in the work Bob has done, both for WNYT and for our competitors, I highly recommend Luzerne Productions for your television video needs.”
Vice President and General Manager
Over the past 20 years, Bob and I have worked together on many projects, among them the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, Price Chopper commercials, Melodies of Christmas and the Double H Ranch Fundraisers.
Not many people can direct my behavior for 21 hours straight, but Bob’s professionalism and class have guided me immeasurably as we helped “Jerry’s Kids” year after year.It’s been my pleasure to work with Bob. He is a true professional, a caring human being and a good and trusted friend.

The Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York needed some new, fresh and vibrant videos for our website. Fortunately, I had met Bob English at one of our business group meetings, and hired Luzerne Productions for the task. He produced some excellent videos, highlighting the exciting experience of Girl Scouts, and also showing the importance of our volunteers.
We are very pleased with these videos, and would gladly recommend Luzerne Productions to any organization who would wish to upgrade and enrich their website’s video messaging.

It's been my honor and pleasure to work side by side with Bob English for over two decades. Bob has been extremely helpful and generous in offering his expertise and guidance to the Muscular Dystrophy Association - his talents allow him to execute a superb, live twenty-one hour production: MDA's Labor Day Telethon.
Bob's creativity and enthusiasm do not stop with this production. I'm pleased to have his support throughout the year; he's always willing to lend a hand and provide advice on both a regional and national basis.

Saratoga War Horse helps veterans re-establish their place
in the world.. Working with the horse, they regain the trust
they hadn’t known they’d lost.
Bob English wrote, produced and directed a powerful video for Saratoga WarHorse which got us to a national level. People are still talking about the presentation that he put together that got our message across so clearly to the veterans we are trying to reach.
His ability to take our concept and translate it into a clear and meaningful message has been invaluable to us.n.

Bob English served as producer/director/editor of my Sunday morning TV show. He served as director/editor of my first documentary. In both instances, Bob routinely displayed – in a word– genius.
I’ve seldom enjoyed a more fruitful working relationship with anybody. Bob is a dynamo who takes an infectious joy in his work. He has the eye and soul of an artist combined with a high energy level that permits him to get things done and get them done in grand style.
He understood content and how to present it effectively and in compelling fashion. Bob English is a joy to work with.

Trial Lawyers Care had a problem. As the largest pro bono legal program in American history, it accomplished extraordinary feats for more than 1700 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks on America. It provided victims with free legal assistance that enabled them to receive $2,300,000,000 in tax-free benefits from the Federal Victim Compensation Fund. The problem? How to share the amazing accomplishment with Congress and others?
Fortunately for Trial Lawyers Care, a very talented videographer showed up. We had viewed an exceptional video for an individual victim that was so profound we tracked down the producer to determine if he could help us tell our story to the country. Bob English said “yes” and the accolades have been coming in ever since.
Bob did it all, from script writing to filming to the excruciating process of editing eight hours of poignant tape to a 13-minute masterpiece. Trial Lawyers Care and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America have been forever grateful.

I was a volunteer attorney for Trial Lawyers Care, which represented victims and their families, who suffered a loss as a result of the 9/11 tragedy. As part of our presentation, we hired Bob to prepare a videotape of the surviving spouse, or parent. Bob truly caught the essence of what we were trying to do. The videotape presentations which were no more than 12 minutes captured what would have taken hours to present in the way of testimony. They presented to the hearing officer the critical information he needed to see and hear to award the maximum amount of compensation. It was a pleasure to work with Bob and his staff. I cannot say enough about the great job he did for my clients.

Luzerne Productions can handle any project you have in mind. I can recommend Bob English's firm without hesitation. What distinguishes Luzerne Productions from other businesses is Bob's intelligence and insight.
I worked with Bob most recently on a full season of Dialogues. He has always been creative, competent and cheerful on the job - but I was most amazed at his ability to consistently improve my work in editing. It was almost as if he knew more about what I was trying to do than I did.
You will not be disappointed with Bob English and Luzerne Productions.
