    Professional Recommendations

    Hesky Tucker Camera Operator (HD)

    I have worked with Felix on a number of shoots but one springs to mind in particular. Try Life, this project is the most tasking production i have faced to date. 160 pages of script in 16 days without the possibility of dropping our persistently high standards. Felix was so on the ball with this shoot, no time was ever wasted, and he really put all he had into every setup and used the time allocated to push the boat as far as he could. His technical ability holds an extremely strong foundation in both camera and lighting, a real pleasure to work with an hopefully will do so many more times in the future!

    Graeme Davidson Production Assistant

    Felix is a professional and highly-skilled focus puller. He makes an exceedingly efficient addition to the camera team on any format with a can-do attitude that makes him a joy to work with.
