2023 Local Excellence Award Winners!

Here at 5Gear Studios, we strive for high-quality products, professional service and an overall incredible customer experience. So we are thrilled to announce that UpCity has recognized 5Gear Studios as a Local Excellence Award Winner in Toronto!


UpCity is a search engine of over 50,000 vetted B2B service providers. They identify service providers that provide reliable high-quality service to their clients and help businesses find B2B service providers they know they can trust. So if you’re looking for a video production company to help with a marketing video, corporate video or television commercial, you can search through UpCity and see which companies are right for the job.


Each year UpCity’s Local Excellence Award celebrates outstanding B2B service providers with the highest brand integrity and performance based on credibility and trustworthiness. These rankings are calculated from information within the UpCity community as well as external sources. They look at their UpCity reviews from customers based on how they feel about the services they received. They also factor in Google MyBusiness reviews and the service providers’ website speed and experience. And this year that included us!


Our local excellence award wouldn’t have been possible without our valued customers. Thank you for our 100% positive and 5Star reviews! Here is some of the wonderful feedback we’ve received from our incredible customers:


Elizabeth, the communications coordinator at YEDi said “5Gear Studios took our vision and made it a reality! Darren and his team are absolutely incredible. They were super accommodating and made the process enjoyable and easy. The final product exceeded our expectations, we are so proud to share it. Thank you 5Gear Studios!”





“Darren was awesome. He was committed above and beyond the call of duty and his expertise provided so much value to us. He gave us such great leadership ideas and programming ideas and his quality was flawless. He was equally generous with his time. We discover Darren at other events and each one of them were noticeably superb. I have referred him to others and I will continue to. It was a tremendous experience and I look forward to our next event together.” - Randy Cohen, event volunteer


A local artist, Aaron Kronis wrote “Darren, Nico, Monica and the entire crew provided me with the most professional and stress free environment to complete our video project - everyone was prompt, professional and they over delivered on the final product! I could t be more pleased and am super happy they took a chance on working with an indie artist. Best decision I’ve made in a while! Highly recommended.”




Naomi Parness, the Co-Founder of KPW Communications says “Every project I have worked on with the talented team from 5 Gear Studios has been spectacular. The team is hard working, creative, cutting edge and professional. We have created some extremely powerful and meaningful content together for many charities that have helped to tell the stories of the incredible work they do. From start to finish they help to create videos that are moving and have impact on those watching. If you want a good video, or virtual show, or live show this is the best company to work with to get the best product possible.”




Thank you UpCity for this honourable award and thank you to everyone who made it possible!
