"Anna worked will under the pressure from stepping in a replacing our existing DOP, due to ill health. She jumped straight in and demonstrated her ability and professionalism, during what at times was a very fraught shoot. I look forward to staying in touch with Anna, and working with her again." --Will Wright 2014
