“You did a very good job on Tuesday [Breaking Bad]. Your safety briefing was excellent. Your comments about the actors walking up to the airplane and getting to near the prop were spot on. Feel free to call this office at any time for anything you might need. And if I ever find myself back in Camarillo I’ll try to look you up.“

“The producers and network were thrilled with the aerials we shot with the motorcycle in the middle of the desert. They created a montage out of a number of our action shots. The last cut was that great angle straight down as the motorcycle entered frame below and we dropped right down on the road behind them as they drove off into the desert.”
– Arthur Anderson, Director, MELROSE PLACE
