“Ed is an astonishingly talented DoP and a consummate professional. Ed is creatively ambitious well as business savvy and is able to contribute overall to the value of a production well beyond the camera. I would trust him to manage a 7-figure budget as readily as I would let him loose with a company of high-profile actors.”
Steffan Aquarone, producer, November 3, 2011
“We recently won a piece of work shooting two promos for a global client in Portland, Oregon. It represented a huge, make or break opportunity for both me as a director and for my production company.
Ed’s advice, from concept to planning to shooting and into post, was excellent and steeped in a deep and thorough technical understanding of making films and the broad practical experience of doing so. He immediately earned the respect of an unfeasibly experienced US crew and only built upon that as the shoot went on. Given that our key grip had recently worked on True Grit and our steadicam op had turned down Glee to be with us I regard that as no mean feat.
I have literally no doubt at all that Ed’s mix of creativity, pragmatism and deep seated passion for cinematography will eventually see him working at the very highest level of filmmaking.”
Lee Kemp, director, October 12, 2011
“Besides being a walking encyclopedia of film and camera tech, he was very calm and confident on set, which aided greatly in putting the whole cast and crew at ease. With deep experience and complete command over his craft, I would definitely recommend his skills as a DOP.”
Peter Szewczyk, director, October 12, 2011
“Ed is a very capable and affable person, who helped Turbulence Film to achieve and exceptional look through his lens. Working under extreme conditions of fast turnaround and on an innovative project which had daily challenges, Ed was a real asset and a genuine team player. I would recommend him highly.”
Julia Higginbottom FRSA, producer, October 11, 2011
“Ed was the director of photography and camera operator for my first short film – The Ash Can – shot entirely on board a submarine. Working in a tight, complicated and limiting set, Ed worked fast and decisively and helped devise framing solutions for complex sequences. Always pleasant and accommodating, even when we had to shut him inside a torpedo tube to get a shot, Ed made a potentially tough shoot much easier from start to finish.”
Jamie Hewitt, director, September 20, 2011
“Ed Moore is an asset to any crew. Impressive range of experience and mega geek when it comes to the kit he works with. Look forward to working with him on the next project.”
Ellen Payne, producer, September 19, 2011
“Ed is a reliable and highly technical DOP, who we have used several times and have obtained great results from him for both commercial and corporate work. His knowledge and ambition is impressive and we look forward to working with him on future projects.”
Ian Bellamy, producer, September 19, 2011
“I worked with Ed on my film Studs on which he was camera op and steadicam operator. Not only did he do great work, above and beyond the call of duty, but he was a wholly positive element within the crew. Ed, hope we get to work together again very, very soon.”
Simon Bovey, director, September 17, 2011
“Ed has the unique talent of having expert technical knowledge and know how that he translates concisely – a welcome attribute for any production team. Ed worked on a short film I produced which was challenging both due to location ( a submarine) and budget. Ed found practical solutions to remain within budget but never without compromising the directors artistic vision. Hugely recommended if only for the good banter.”
Sabrina Dridje, producer, September 17, 2011
“I’ve worked with Ed on several occasions both as a Camera Operator and as a Director of Photography. He is an excellent collaborator with a wonderful eye for a dynamic shot. He is calm under pressure and always brings a tremendous passion for visual storytelling to each project. He commands respect from his crew, is very time efficient and delivers beautiful images. I’d have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ed for any production.”
Stephen Murphy, DOP, September 16, 2011
“Ed is a joy to work with, much much more than a DOP. Ed is both talented and a superlative organiser with a deep understanding of the process from initial concept meetings to the end product. His personable approach is rare, in that nothing is to much trouble to work out or overcome. VR&F have made two films with Ed, one a corporate and one short film both in the motorsport sector. The results are superb, both completed on time and within budget. When the next project comes our way Ed will certainly be our first port of call.”
Gus Russell, Creative Director, September 16, 2011
“Ed worked with VR&F on “Momentum” and “Reborn”. Momentum was part of a broader campaign to raise awareness and introduce Matech Competition GT1 to new fans and sponsors with high quality film shorts/promo’s telling both the team and the car’s story. “Reborn” was a docu style film shot at LeMans 2010.
In both these key campaign productions Ed was invaluble in translating our ideas into reality – exciting and beautifully shot productions, his experise, ideas and attention to detail ensured we got the right end result for the client.
For VR&F Ed is an invaluble resource and we look forward to working with him on the next project.”
Verity Russell, producer, September 16, 2011
“Ed is an excellent cinematographer. He has a very good eye for detail and his lighting skills are second to none. He’s also a really nice guy and nothing is a problem for him. I am looking forward to working with him again on my next feature film project.”
Simon Cox, director, September 16, 2011
“The first time I worked with Ed I was struck by his keen professionalism and distinct skill. He is always the calmest on set and works on equal footing with all members of crew, whether large or small. I always enjoy working with Ed, and look forward to working with him on the exciting projects he has in the pipeline.”
