  • “When I first started working with Justin several years ago the first thing that struck me was his deep commitment to vision. The scale of the project and the size of the budget doesn’t seem to matter to him. He wants to understand the vision and then figure out how to deliver. He’s done amazing things with cameras I can only describe as handy-cams, beautiful narrative work with Red’s and Alexa’s, and truly thought provoking documentary work. Whatever the project is I know Justin will think of things others won’t and he will not just understand, but amplify the vision and outcome.”
