    Antipsychotic Medications: An Update for Prescribing Clincians
    Project Type: Video Production
    Review Date: 4 February, 2020
    I have worked with Modern Epic on several projects and can unequivocally state that their work is outstanding, that they are the consummate professionals, and that working with them, both individually and as a team, is an absolute pleasure. ME gets 5 stars in each category because their work is really that good. They work seamlessly a team and take great pride in their work. Perhaps most importantly, ME is invested in and cares about the quality of their finished product as much as the client!

    Suicide Prevention for Healthcare Workers

    Review Date: 4 February, 2020
    I have worked with Modern Epic on a number of distance learning clinical training modules for the NYS Office of Mental Health. I cannot say enough about the high quality of their work. In addition to first rate visual videography, they have particular skill in translating complex clinical content into accessible scripts, that, with nuanced direction and video production, become engaging and effective educational vignettes. And, they are great to work with!
