"I recently had the pleasure of working with Ash on a commercial project. Right from the off, his craftsmanship and collaborative nature were obvious. We met up to chat through the concept and the kind of thing I was hoping to achieve. Ash was quick to offer suggestions and solutions to problems I was anticipating with the way the film would need to come together.
On the shoot day, Ash was punctucal, professional, and most importantly just lovely to work with. I was really happy with the image, and because of the extensive work he’d put in before the shoot day he confidently managed his team and got set up really efficiently. the commercial we were shooting had some incredibly personal and vulnerable performances from the talent, and Ash was very respectful at all times, and helped foster an atmosphere that was conducive to getting great performances, and making the whole cast comfortable.
I’d strongly recommend working with Ash - he’s a lovely guy, and his work is top notch. His commitment, attitude and extensive technical knowledge would make him an incredibly valuable asset to any production.
