Film and Entertainment Industry Support Services Testimonials

“I worked with Mike and SGI in the fall of 2008 for a role that I was preparing for. With his background and SGI's support they were able, from a simple character description, put together a complete week long tactical training program that targeted specifically what I needed in order to accurately portray a Force Recon Marine. I found working with SGI not only a great learning experience that I will carry forever, but I learned about the discipline, lighting quick decision making and overwhelming information overload U.S. combat Marines deal with in combat. My hat is off to all our service men and women deployed around the world. Great guy and top notch company. I will definitely be working with them again.” Christopher Eric Ruiz (Actor)
