Personally, a production in South Africa cannot be conceived without Michèle. For each project that we have done together for almost 10 years now, there has always been a maximum investment from her side. With Her I have rarely heard: "No, it's impossible! And when it really was, solutions were always found. What is expected from a partner who organizes his shooting film abroad? professionalism, efficiency, reactivity, but not only, we also need creativity. Michèle is simply still there!

Working with Michelle is a great pleasure, production value is fantastic and to every request we had even last minute (and we had a lot on all the jobs I did with her) Michelle & her great team made it happen. Always in a great mood and relaxed. She also gets immediately what we need in terms of artistic direction so she will gear her teams in the right direction from the start. I recommend working with her company to anyone who wants a smooth shoot in SA no matter the size of the job she will handle it with ease.
