BEST STUDENT (BFI MICRO)

Short Film (2022)

Director: Rebs Fisher-Jackson


Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro G2 // Canon FD

DOP // Colourist

When looking for a director of photography for my micro short, there couldn’t have been a better choice than Ash. Not only did he come aboard just days before the shoot, but he also came aboard with fantastic ideas, enthusiasm, energetic professionalism, and an incredibly skilled eye. With such short notice before the shoot, Ash repeatedly surpassed all expectations and more and completely smashed it out of the park.  

Ash was always prepared to go above and beyond: nothing was too difficult, and he patiently worked with me to capture my vision on-screen perfectly: we worked together to shoot a night scene during the day and a shot through a cupboard; throughout, Ash was extremely helpful and hands-on when problem-solving.  

Not only is Ash extremely talented at what he does, he’s also incredibly easy to work with, outgoing, and a real joy to have on your team. It was really fun working with Ash, and I appreciated that he was always prepared to help out wherever he was needed and gave the shoot his 100% 

Since releasing ‘Best Student’ onto the festival circuit, I’ve received multiple pieces of glowing feedback about the film’s cinematography - Ash made my story come alive on-screen in such a beautiful way. I’d work with Ash again in a heartbeat and I really hope that opportunity comes, he’s a fantastic DOP and a great asset to any team and I highly recommend him.
