"Luca was an absolute joy to work with - he is incredibly knowledgable about all aspects of cinematography and was very quick coming up with and setting up all the lighting set-ups and compositions for the various scenes (the scenes varied wildly from 1950s to modern day, studio to interior and exterior location set-ups). He got on with all the crew and has a great sense of humour while also being incredibly professional and punctual. I highly recommend Luca and hope to work with him on many more projects in the future."
Oliver Briginshaw - Film Director
