powerful storytelling for positive change


"Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." -Voltaire


Nothing is more rewarding than receiving positive feedback for our work. We are committed to discovering the emotional essence in each story we tell and communicating it to the audience.

“I sincerely believe that you have crafted a beautiful, emotionally powerful portrait of EARTH University.”
– Edward McNally, PR Consultant, EARTH University

“Spontaneous applause and tears accompanied our board of trustees first viewing of Colorado Rocky Mountain School’s show. The folks at Life Skills felt they could capture the soul of the school and they have.”
– Terry Lee, Director of Development, CRMS

"It was a pleasure working with George and Life Skills Productions on creating a new video for Our Space. He listened to our vision and crafted a video we love and that has gotten positive feedback from donors and others who view our website. George helped us feel comfortable and fully explained his process along the way. We couldn't have asked for a better experience."
- Gail Erdos and Peggy Tryon, Co-Directors, Our Space inc.

“Once again, I wanted to thank you so much for our wonderful episode, people love it, and we’re so happy to have it!

“From the beginning, the team at Life Skills paid close attention to our agency’s work, our core mission and the clients we serve. They came to our administration office to meet with myself, the president and our development people; they reviewed our collateral and asked the right follow-up questions to get a real sense of our work and our clients. They helped us focus on our documentary and related fundraising goals, and to distill the very essence of our work and our message.”
– Aine Greaney, Director Community Relations, Center for Addictive Behavior

“I want to tell you that we have been very happy with the experience and results so far. The Life Skills Productions team has been very easy to work with and very professional. They have done their best to accommodate our wishes and have taken the time and interest, to learn enough about the organization to correctly portray it. We invited George Araneo to our board meeting last month, in Washington DC, to present the documentary in person.”
– Gian Rossi-Espagnet, Executive Director, EARTH University Foundation

“When George Araneo and his crew created the documentary about us, they took the time to understand the work we are doing here at Windhorse. They captured the details and the essence of our approach and provided us with a poignant document for our outreach.”
– Jeff Bliss, Development Director, Windhorse Asscociates

“Life Skills Productions was a pleasure to work with at every stage, from crafting the storyline to our final edits. We’re excited about the film’s ability to take our viewers on an emotional journey to the field to see the impact of our work, and are confident it will make a big difference in spreading our message.”
– William Foote, Founder and CEO, Root Capital
