"I have to say I am really very happy with the film and it has exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I hope you're proud of it too because you played such an important role in making it happen. I can't thank you enough."
"My god it's beautiful. Great job. Footage is great. It's moving, inspiring, sweet, honest and fun... We wouldn't have got half as much footage from someone else. I've never seen anyone work as hard."
"We really enjoyed your talent, energy, humour, passion and an amazing eye for detail. I felt you understood our vision so much it left our art direction flat. It was near perfect every shot mate! Massively Impressed!"
