Ismar worked on a feature documentary I co-directed and co-produced called 'The Trial of Ratko Mladic', a hugely ambitious and complicated film about the war crimes trial of the former Bosnian Serb general. Ismar did a superb job as our AP during the nearly year-long edit -- researching controversial parts of the story so we got it right, chasing down difficult to find archive, editing some early sequences, shooting during the trial's verdict when we needed to cover the story from four different angles with four cameramen, and providing really considered and insightful notes at viewings. Ismar has incredibly good editorial judgement, surprising for someone so young. He is very intelligent, is a very, very hard worker, and is deeply committed to the medium of film. I would recommend him highly without reservation.
I cant's speak highly enough of Ismar. He's extremely talented, incredibly dedicated and a great collaborator. He's also fun to be around. I'm looking forward to working with him again.
We love working with Ismar. Either as a cameraman, editor or interviewer he is always very reliable and technically competent.
