LS3 Studios and Mr. Leonard Smith are valued partners with Xavier University of Louisiana. We rely on Mr. Smith to provide a wide-array of video products throughout our academic year and I have come to trust not only his creative talents and technological insight, but the manner in which he accurately reflects the University. I especially appreciate the professional manner in which he is able to work on tight deadlines under sometimes stressful circumstances. I strongly recommend LS3 Studios to every organization that is searching for great video or documentary services.
