Yemi worked with us as a shooting AP on an observed documentary series about the Shell Eco-Marathon - an eco-friendly car race where student teams build vehicles and race to see who's goes farthest on the least amount of fuel. Yemi showed boundless enthusiasm and energy on a long and tough shoot in North Carolina. He built fruitful relationships with the contributors and was an asset to the team. I hope to work with him again.
