Nicola is one of the best AP's I've ever worked with. Very bright, incredibly organised and hard working and has a great manner when dealing with contributors. I have used her on two very difficult (and different) productions and on each one she has excelled. I would have no hesitation in getting her into any team that I was putting together and would recommend her to anyone who is crewing up.

Sam Grace, Exec Producer, Twofour
