    Professional Recommendations

    Anyalita San Director

    Ben is a very personable and the whole team loved him. He's very helpful but also able to work independently.I hired him as the sound recordist for the interview portion of the Phoenix Sessions and was very happy with his work and defiantly look forward to working with him again.

    Alí Halliday Director

    Ben was a great crew member to have on board my second short "Out, Out-". He immediately impressed me with his statement of never having had to record ADR for a film on which he had worked when we met to discuss the shoot. And he never stopped impressing me - passionately committed to the project at hand, he is a sociable and friendly professional upon whom you can absolutely rely. I'm already highly looking forward to seeing Ben again when we work together next year on my third short "Let the Shadows become you". Thanks for all your hard work Ben. Alí Halliday

    Samuel Lodato Writer / Director

    Punctual, on-the-ball and friendly.

    Jodie Marie Spencer Make-up Artist

    Talented, professional and a great pleasure to work with!

    Gemma McNeil Greig AD (1st)

    Ben was professional and friendly. Got the job done efficiently and was a great member of the team. Everything you could want in a crew member, sound recordist and technician. I recommend him highly and I hope to work with him again soon.
