Anika is wonderful to work with, extremely efficient, organised, creative, calm under pressure and personable. She's a team player and a great problem solver able to understand the needs of a shoot quickly and then following through to get results. I've worked with her as a Producer on a number of shoots, most notably in the West Bank, where everything went incredibly smoothly - no small task. If Anika is on board I feel confident and comfortable.
