Cathianne Hall – Development Script Editor at CBBC.

"Neil took on our commission at short notice, planned the shoot in consultation with us professionally and with the minimum of fuss, and filmed a complex event, a choir and orchestra performance in a large venue, with challenging lighting and audio conditions, unobtrusively to produce results that far exceed our expectations. We are very proud of the resulting suite of films. Neil is a very calm, reassuring and capable person to have on your team, and great value for money."
