A client's comments about Andy Reichsman, Kate Purdie and Ames Hill Productions:
"I've worked with lots of different directors, producers, and cameramen, and he's one of the best. He has the gift of invisibility when working with people who might otherwise be intimidated. It's never about him; he's willing to let things unfold rather than engaging in excessive 'directing.' He uses time economically (doesn't ask for things he won't need later), is patient with neophytes, respectful of locations and their needs & rules, and really good at scripting and organizing content. The fact that he and Kate are a one-stop shop makes his work a bargain that's probably unbeatable in New York City. "
