I watched the documentary with great pleasure and was particularly moved by the testimony given by the students.
Beautiful detail and inspiring symbolism. Paul Carpenter knows how to capture the living essence of these inanimate objects that kindle the fire within every soul who belongs to the sky.
It’s a stunning project, and your documentary covers it so superbly, not only getting across acres of information, but communicating the sheer delight of the school kids, the genius of the teachers, directors and performers.
I’m still on cloud 9 about what you had done on the Desire video. It’s better than I could have ever imagined.
Paul is a modern alchemist. He converts the various elements of what you want to say, show and hear into a work of art in itself.
I rarely watch something of this nature and think that the true spirit of the piece has been captured, so really well done.
We know that without a doubt this project could not have been entrusted to a better and more efficient person than you. Your meticulous eye for detail and commitment is second to none.
Many, many thanks for your terrific work on the Olympic Torch Relay. I am sure it was good to see your input up on the big screen. It was individual and outstanding.
Paul's documentary about the Southend Mencap Music School is simply spectacular and it is no wonder the film received a standing ovation at its premiere. Paul managed to capture the heart and soul of something very dear to me and I will forever be grateful for his wonderful portrayal of its story.
His approach from beginning to end was distinguished by professionalism, respect and sensitivity, and I cannot commend him highly enough for his skill and dedication to quality film making.
I'd like to say that you are fantastic to work with, in every way: professional, organised, flexible, reassuring and unflappable. The years of experience simply show in the quality.
I cannot believe one man can turn out such high quality as an independent film producer
It’s fabulous! You know how fussy I am – but the soundscape is just marvellous. The clever seagulls, machinery in the docks and stereo aeroplanes make me so happy! It’s just so professional.
I think the leaflet is absolutely brilliant – bright, fun, captures the audience attention straight away.
Paul is an expert who goes the extra mile and pays attention to detail to make sure the finished product is perfect. 5 star service all the way.
Beautifully shot and edited little film about the immortal Tiger Moth. A must-watch!
