"I've worked with Adrian for over 4 years on all kinds of projects from profile pieces in Tokyo to capturing fast cars on track at Donington Park. He's always got the right gear and the right attitude and gets the job done within my - usually too tight- shooting schedule. Adrian is also a really versatile post production pro whose skills go way beyond a standard edit; he's a talented animator and graphics man who is always on the cutting edge of what's possible and available in the business. Whenever I need guidance on getting what's in my head onto screen I call him and he always picks up."
