As an event planning administrator I had the opportunity to work with Ecto-1 Productions on numerous occasions for conference events. I found them to be very professional, accommodating and reasonable. I would have no hesitation to use their services in the future and can highly recommend them based on the quality of service given.

Earlier this year, we had our entire sound system replaced with Ecto-1. We are so incredibly happy with​ the work that has been done. Sounds great and looks great too! Working with Dustin was easy. Right away, I had a sense of trust in his ability to make things right and to lead us to making the best decision for the restaurant in what needed to be done. I appreciated the fact that he was so open and available to any questions or concerns that we may have had afterwards. We have not had any issues since the install. With Dustin, you really feel like you are working with someone that cares. Happy to recommend Ecto-1!
Lauren Barr, General Manager, Earls Barlow Trail

I have had the pleasure of working with Ecto-1 Productions on many events from charity galas to multiple day multi site conferences. I continue to hire Ecto-1 time after time because of their tireless work ethic, knowledge, and ability to trouble shoot and fix technical issues quickly. Dustin does not stress in tense situations and is a great people person with my clients. I would not do an event with Sophisticated audio visual elements without Ecto-1.

Supplying and installing a sound system as complex as the one needed for St. Mary's Cathedral is one thing… but supporting the community that uses it now, and into the future is another accomplishment! Ecto-1 Productions excelled at both. Not only was the team able to navigate and tame the sonic maze of our heritage cathedral, but Dustin always made time to assist those who needed to learn how to use the system. Thanks Ecto-1. Thanks Dustin.
Very Rev. Greg Coupal, Rector, St. Mary's Cathedral
I highly recommend Ecto-1 Productions! In the last 2 years, Dustin has spearheaded the production and execution of many of our client’s events from coast to coast. These events require full AV packages and include entertainers, background music, speeches and video projections as well as enhanced tablet and large touch screen technology applications. It became clear on his first event with us that Dustin was a step above his competitors’. Not only is he extremely proficient in AV/Lighting and all things technological, he is also courteous, respectful and very professional. There was never a time when he said he couldn’t do something, no matter how difficult the challenge – even if it was out of his genre. In fact, we call Dustin our AV/Techno MacGyver! For the third year in a row, we will be contracting Ecto-1 Productions for our nationwide needs and recommend to anyone to do the same.

I contacted Ecto-1 Productions to install my home theatre in my home family room here in Calgary, and couldn't be happier! Dustin came at the time stated and advised me on audio visual equipment, TV, Amp., etc. He is very knowledgeable in all the latest trends in home entertainment and I was very happy with his suggestions. Items all picked up and quickly installed by Dustin. I'm very happy and would highly recommend Ecto-1 for any small or large Audio visual purchases and installations.

Ecto-1 has been our go-to source for conference A/V for several years. Dustin and his crew have proven to be reliable and helpful. As a not-for-profit professional association we have to be prudent in how we invest our resources, and Ecto-1 pricing is inevitably the most advantageous — yet they never skimp on equipment or time. We appreciate that Ecto-1 personnel are presentable, polite and punctual.

I have worked with Ecto-1 on multiple facets of my business and I have always felt there has been high reliability and honesty in their work. The technical aspects are great and the service is timely. The best part is the finished product is the best I have seen in the city for their line of work.
Dylan Todd, General Manager, Earls Bankers Hall/V Lounge
I have used Ecto-1 for the past 5 years and the service provided is always exceptional. Dustin is extremely knowledgeable about everything and anything. He takes pride in his work and always meets our needs and budget. I would highly recommend his services.

I own multiple properties and moved into a new personal 5000 square foot residence last July. The home is ten years old and the wiring for the internet and media in the basement looked like a spaghetti factory! In just a couple hours Dustin had all the wiring sorted and connected to a new network switch. It looks like a million bucks down there now and everything works!
Trevor, Elbow Valley
Dustin Milne and Ecto-1 productions were a huge part of one of the most important days of my life. When I came to Dustin with the idea of proposing to my girlfriend in a big way, not only did he offer solutions to everything I was looking for, he thought outside the box and offered ideas I never would have even thought of. When the big day came, I had 80 dancers, a giant screen and projector, lights, sound, and a camera crew to capture the entire event. Not only that, but the speed at which everything was put together (including the final video) was astounding. I can truly say that without the help of Dustin and Ecto-1, the day would not have been possible. Thank you!

Dustin Milne and Ecto-1 Productions have been involved with Tom Baines school through sales, service and volunteering for the last fifteen years. The school has one of the best jr. high fine arts facilities in the city with much credit going to Ecto-1 productions. The service is fast, efficient and very friendly. Dustin takes pride in his work and builds success through the fostering of honest relationships and wanting what is best of his client and the people they serve. Dustin has been volunteering at Tom Baines school to support the annual musical theatre productions for fifteen years. He works with young people who share a passion he discovered for himself when he was a young man. He is kind and patient and loves to invest in the "jr. high tech crews" we have at Tom Baines school. Many students have gone on to explore high school tech theatre studies and enter into post secondary theatre studies with a focus on technical production. Dustin and Ecto-1 have contributed to forging amazing memories for hundreds of jr. high students. I highly recommend Ecto-1 and Dustin Milne for all of your production needs.
