    Professional Recommendations

    Ronald Alele Lighting Cameraperson

    It was a great pleasure working for Sati and his team (Talking Pictures). Very adept, affable and creativeI company. I throughly enjoyed the results of the work we did in tandem. I look forward to working with him on his next upcoming project.

    Hannah Wing Make-up Artist

    As a freelance makeup artist, you always hope you'll receive clear direction on set and that's exactly what I found on Oxasians! The team had a strong vision of what they wanted to achieve and thus I was able to work comfortably as both head of costume and makeup. The documentary was a huge success!

    Vaia Ikonomou Camera Assistant

    I have worked with Sati twice now - he is an incredibly professional director, highly decisive, creative and it is clear that he always strives for the best. He treats cast and crew brilliantly and I learn a lot from him. I enjoy working as a production assistant for Sati and would again in the future.
