    Nic is a phenomenal cinematographer and personable, charismatic interviewer. Not only does he bring out the best in our interview subjects, he is able to get them to phrase complex scientific jargon in common terms, while visibly exuding their passion for the subject. He shoots some of the best b-roll our edit team has worked with and is incredibly prompt and professional. Highly, highly recommend Nic for any of your cinematography and interview needs!

    Nic & Marguerite have been a joy to work with! Marguerite scouted locations for us in Los Angeles and she delivered great options quickly and uploaded all requested data within our discussed timeframe - she also initiated outreach to locations. Both Nic & Marguerite have been perfect communicators, showcased their talent and ability to work as a team, and we are excited to work with them again!

    It's always a pleasure working with Nic. This shoot was unique in that it was a more abbreviated timeframe and we needed to work fast to get everything we needed. Nic came prepared, had everything set up and was ready to roll the second it was time to go! He's our go-to in SoCal and we're looking forward to working with him more in the new year.
