I can say more about his work habits (always willing to do the extra weekend or late night hours when needed), his good humor and even-keeled, pleasant personality, his great problem solving skills, his maturity and mentorship of the newer, and younger employees in the company, but ultimately he is a very valuable talented individual which any company would be lucky to have.
From start to finish he was a thorough professional, starting with a trailer script, suggestions and ideas about what lines and scenes to include or exclude and also how to incorporate music and graphics.
The end result was magic. We were blown away by his very 1st cut and barely had any revisions or changes to the trailer.
With years of experience, he is very good at what he does, it’s evident from his passion for movies and music.
He is an extremely pleasant personality and is very easy to work with.
As a film producer, I would highly recommend him for your next trailer.
