I’ve worked with Simon since 2010 on a number of campaigns and he can be relied on for finding great locations that fit our brief, for his ability to work calmly under pressure, and to very quick turnaround times. He brings a ‘can do’ attitude regardless of the situation, and is a pleasure to work with.
I have worked with Simon over the last 10 years on tons of commercials and have found him to be one of the best location managers in the business. His attention to detail and thoroughness has saved us on countless occasions when we have been against the wall with a tight deadline. Along with that he has an exceptional eye for locations and works extremely collaboratively with each of our Directors.
I worked recently with Simon on a tricky job that was very talent heavy. It required high levels of security and confidentiality which impacted and narrowed our choices of location significantly. In addition to this, as with a lot of jobs, everything was very last minute and the budget was quite tight. Throughout the whole process I found Simon incredibly informed, dedicated and flexible in his approach to the brief. Even with all these boxes to tick he managed to produce a wide range of quality locations seemingly unaffected by all of the restrictions we placed on him. I can highly recommend him.
Working with Simon has always been a pleasure. He has run our locations efficiently whilst being cost effective and maintaining good relations with crew, neighbours and most importantly clients. Definitely one of my top recommends and a nice guy.
I have been producing commercials for over 15 years and Simon is one of my first calls when I have a challenging location to find. As well as being a great scout he is also a very professional location manager who understands the needs of both the director and production.
