Andrew has been a valuable asset to SIZ productions. Andrew has shot and edited many videos for us, such as short films, promotional videos, documentaries, weddings, interviews. He processes all types of skills. He has a unique style of shooting and editing. He pays attention to detail and is very easy to work with. He has done many last minute changes for our post production services. I highly recommend Andrew Spicers reliability, organisational skills and all around quality of work.
Creator and owner
We had the pleasure of working with Andrew at the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2018. Andrew supported the Bone Cancer Research Trust and our runners by taking photos on the day of the event. Andrew integrated seamlessly into the team and worked autonomously to capture the best possible shots, exactly to the brief provided. He was punctual, assertive, adaptable and delivered the photos in a very timely manner following the event. His friendly and professional nature was commented on by those around him and we’d be thrilled to work with him again.

"It was a pleasure working with Andrew who created a short film for us in support of a funding application. He edited video footage of women we work with to get across the key messages that we wanted the funder to hear. he did this in a very engaging and impactful way. He was also very flexible, turning around several drafts in a short space of time to ensure that the film was exactly right."

"Andrew has worked with Awkward Branch Productions for the last 3 months and is currently editing a second film for us, ‘The Devil You Know’, after having edited 'Mysterious Ways’. He is very reliable, hard-working, easily approachable and adaptable to the needs of the production.
Besides editing, Andrew also helped as an assistant camera operator on ‘Knockout’ and will contribute again to our next production ‘Can We Order First?’.
He has become one of our most trusted collaborators and we hope to continue working with him on many more projects in the future."

"The first impression was of a very well organised, technically completely competent and articulate, friendly and efficient sound and video expert. Once we were in the interview situation with Professor Ipsita Roy, in her lab, we realised that Andrew would, with the minimum of fuss and a lovely persona, arrange our eminent professor so she was comfortably mic'ed up, in a position that he had pre-considered the background and intermittent noise reduction, had optimised the lighting conditions and the 'lab' feel and had put in place two additional backup sound alternatives.
Andrew is not only a very knowledgeable and pleasant professional, but is quietly and quickly a perfectionist. The resulting video had an immediate professional quality and the original soundtrack was superb minimising the editing necessary. We are very pleased to have worked with Andrew and have since offered him another interview with the CEO of SOMNAI, a VR and performance immersive entertainment experience and also a music video for a new singer-songwriter, debuting in November.
Andrew is predominantly motivated to provide the highest quality product for the best possible value. We have been really impressed with his response times, capability, efficiency and considerable technical acumen, combined with a very pleasant and willing persona that you feel happy to take into any interview or filming situation, or present with any technical complexity, and know that he will comprehend it, think beyond it and handle it with excellence in all aspects. We are working on a feature film which we will invite Andrew to film, alongside our next stage production in the autumn and have recommended his excellent work to partners such as the NHS Trust and National charities."
