Client Testimonial

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what my clients say:

I have been working with Christian for more than a decade. In that time we have delivered a wide variety of corporate videos, including large multi-camera shoots, simple one-camera executive interviews, and spontaneous on-location filming at conferences and events. There are many reasons that I love working with him. Firstly, he is an outstanding professional and technically very proficient with a wide range of cameras and audio equipment. Secondly, he has an excellent work ethic and high level of dedication to whatever project he is working on. Thirdly, and most importantly for me, he is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to work with. This really makes a difference when you are working long hours under pressure and having to deal with changing circumstances. It’s easy to work with Christian, and there are so many things you just don’t have to worry about when he is on location. I have no hesitation recommending him highly to any producer, director or video professional.

Nerven behalten bei schwierigen Dreharbeiten – eine goldene Tugend! Für mich ist es jedes Mal unschätzbar wertvoll, Christian mit seiner Erfahrung, seiner breiten Expertise und vor allem seiner gelassenen Art an Bord zu wissen, gerade wenn es stürmisch zugeht.
Technisch ein Allrounder, international erfahren, ausgefuchst in der IT – bisher habe ich noch jedes Problem von Christian gelöst bekommen. Und außerdem macht es mir Spaß, mit ihm zu arbeiten.

Keeping your nerve during difficult filming – a golden virtue! For me it is always invaluable to have Christian on board with his experience, his broad expertise and, above all, his calm manner, especially when things get stormy.
Technically an all-rounder, internationally experienced, sophisticated in IT – so far I have had every problem solved by Christian. And besides, I enjoy working with him.
