Over the last ten years, Simon Willis has been a valuable member of the Adventure Show team. His work as a self-shooting producer and camera person has contributed greatly to the series.

A great strength is his ability to work independently and to take responsibility for all aspects of production including research and planning; the technical issues arising from complex filming situations; conducting in depth interviews through to the completion of the task in hand. His energy and enthusiasm has had a positive impact on the productions in which he's been involved.

Margaret Wicks, Adventure Show Productions
