Seth has impressed me immensely with his professionalism and dedication to WorldNomads.com projects. He has demonstrated consummate ability to direct superbly, shoot beautifully, edit masterfully, and deliver quickly.

His projects came in well before deadline, and I was truly wowed by what he had produced, and cannot wait to send him out on assignment again. He sits right at the top of the list of filmmakers for WorldNomads.com, and comes highly, highly recommended!

Seth was able to produce, shoot and edit a great video for us in China. When hiring outside of the country it is important to have someone that can handle any issues that pop up and think on the fly. The editing process was also very smooth and collaborative.

Seth ran with the story and turned it around in record time. He followed instructions and delivered excellent footage.

Seth shot and edited the pilot episode for our doc series and did an amazing job with it. Beautiful cinematography, solid editing...he gave us just what we were looking for. Would love to work with him again.

Seth has produced really beautiful images and excellent content under less than ideal circumstances. It was a pleasure to work with him!
