    Professional Recommendations

    Simon Hornett Sound Recordist

    Tom is a proactive, personable director who truly knows how to tell a story well. I enjoyed working with him on FOTO and numerous other projects. His attention to detail and quality is outstanding, and his ability to bring out the best in cast and crew alike, is impressive and admirable, no matter what the circumstance.
