Ivan has worked as a cinematographer and photographer on several productions for Flix Films, and has been an outstanding asset to every project he’s been involved with. As AD/AP I’ve had the pleasure to work on set with him directly as a cinematographer on high pressure drama, and his calm, quick, professional approach, outstanding lighting skills, and unique eye for shooting, meant that we were able to meet the day’s huge shot list and achieve fantastic results.

Ivan is a consummate professional. He will always work towards the best possible outcome with a positive and good- natured attitude. I always enjoy working with Ivan and have no hesitation in giving the highest recommendation to any future employer of his exceptional skills.
