Rachel Armitage | 2nd & 3rd AD
"I have recently finished working with Rachel and I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with her work as both 3rd AD & 2nd AD.
Rachel really threw herself into the production - which was a very ambitious 4 part drama/doc. Although I was asking her to work both as a 2nd AD & a 3rd AD - more like an old BBC AFM - Rachel remained passionate and enthusiatic throughout the prep and shoot.
I could not recommend Rachel more highly and will be wanting to take her onto my next production as soon as I know what that is...".

Kathy Hughes | Script Supervisor
"I wanted the support of a top Script Supervisor for my first Feature Film 'The Keeper', shot on location in Uzbekistan and the US. Kathy proved herself to be a trusted source of support, by my side throughout the most challenging part of the location shoot in Uzbekistan. Kathy's thorough understanding of every aspect of shooting coverage and beyond into post production was invaluable to our project and made our job seamless in the edit suite, her notes are an editors dream.
Kathy is a team player who actors and crew relied upon for her exerience and sense of humor when times got tough. Her sharp eye for detail and creative input was second to none. I would highly recommend her."

Kathy Hughes | Script Supervisor
" I was Executive Producer and Director on ABC/Freeform's 'GUILT' shot in London in 2016 and it was wonderful working with Kathy Hughes! We developed an amazing working relationship and she was invaluable as my Script Supervisor. She's a team player with a great sense of humor and calm demeanor, focused and organized; I was so impressed with her technical abilities and inter-personal skills. Kathy liaised seamlessly with our cast and crew, as well as our producers and writers throughout the numerous script revisions and day to day surprises. A great partner and fun to be with, I recommend Kathy without reservation!".

John Rodda | Production Sound Mixer
"...For your time. For your energies. For your talents. Mostly for your patience, humor, kindness and collaboration. If you happen across any others within the sound department and happen to remember, please send them my thanks as well.
I couldn't be prouder of our past together, more saddened by the present and more enthusiastic for the future. I am lucky to have worked with you and hope I didn't p*** you off enough to keep you from doing it again soon.
My best to you and yours this holiday season and break many legs continuing to bring other writer's work to life in the new year".

I hope you know how delighted I, along with David and the directors, are with your beautiful hair and make-up (and tache!) designs and how grateful we all are for the calm, friendly and utterly professional way you run the team and work with the rest of the crew. It's largely down to you that we have such a happy cast - they all feel confident with their look and so well looked after - it makes for such a fantastic atmosphere."

Greg Harris | Production Co-ordinator
"Greg was a highly valued member of our production team and worked on the last series of Waterloo Road, a network drama for BBC ONE. Greg’s professional manner and ability to work calmly under pressure made him an asset when running a busy production office. Greg was very proactive and methodical in his approach and provided great support to the production manager and line producer as well as mentoring junior members of the production team. Greg was always willing to offer his assistance and had an excellent rapport with all the cast and crew. He would be an asset to any employer and I can’t recommend him highly enough."
-Steven Little (Line Producer) - 'Waterloo Road'

Georgina Higgins | Script Supervisor
"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Georgina on two productions, Trylife - Episode 1 and a short film Into The Surf. I have been consistently impressed with Georgina’s attitude and productivity during the time that she has worked on set. Georgina is both very bright and motivated. She is a joy to work with on set, I’m delighted to have worked with her and will hopefully work with her in the near future. Georgina has demonstrated the importance of her role as Script Supervisor in the ability to articulate information and ideas in both verbal and written forms. These all helped towards the continuity of the productions to run smoothly. I recommend Georgina Higgins without reservation."

David Kellick | Location Manager
"Whoever scouted the locations for Scintilla should be given a pat on the back, because while this movie presumably didn't have access to a Hollywood budget, its visuals are impressively atmospheric"

Iain Andrew | Script Supervisor
"Dear Iain, Before you leave for the break, we all wanted to say thank you for the terrific work you have done since starting on Call the Midwife Series 4.

The results of that hard work are clear in what has been shot and cut so far; there is no question that these episodes are amongst the very best that have been made."

Toby Sherborne | 2nd AD
"Toby stands there right at the top of the tree of 2nd AD's that I have worked with in the last 23 years that I have been firsting. On a particularly fraught and difficult shoot, he was always there supporting me and the director, and not once did he complain. He is attentive to detail, calm, incredibly hard-working and incisive with his crowd casting. In addition, he has the most wonderful impish sense of humour. It would be an honour and a pleasure to work with him again."
-Paul Dale (1st AD) - 'Agatha Raisin'
