Daniel Powell - Local musical artist
I created a music video for his single titled Slow Day:
'My experience of working with Si was wholly positive, despite Storm Doris raging around us and the fact that I was suffering from a bad cold! Si worked quickly and efficiently setting up equipment and arranging shots, all the while ensuring I was comfortable and entertained. I was happy for Si to take the lead creatively, but he was always keen to ensure that I was happy with the direction we were taking. From a technical point of view, the resulting film is pretty faultless to my eye – the lighting, focus, editing all appear incredibly professional. I was really impressed with what Si managed to achieve from a relatively brief shoot.'

'Working with Si Andrews and his team on ‘Red Kite’ was a very enjoyable experience. The screenplay and dialogue for this specific film were written so informally you could understand the characters and the depth straight away. Shooting the film in just 2 days was very inspiring, especially as I, myself, am pursuing a career in filmmaking.
The process of rehearsals and production were ever so professional and quick, it was an exhilarating feeling where you hardly had time to stop and think about what you were doing – and that’s the best type of environment to work in. Si, from his direction to camera work were all so professional, and it was a true honour to work alongside him.'

I helped in creating the University exhibition for the Fashion Design degree 3rd Years students final show. Interviewing each of the students on their process, influences and additional recording audio sections of the studio to provide an inside experience of their working process.
'Si Andrews undertook a sound recording for the BA Fashion Design Creative Pattern Cutting exhibition. He organised booking relevant equipment and coordinated recordings of both studio sounds and student discussions relating to the work being exhibited. Si was professional and helpful and ensuring that the recordings were provided on the appropriate format by the required deadline. He displayed excellent team working skills supporting his peer and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for similar projects n the future. The inclusion of the sound recordings added an extra dimension to the work on show, helping to make the exhibition a great success.'
