"As a Commercial Cinematographer in the industry for almost two decades I have worked with a lot of locations people all over the US and abroad, so I feel confident when I say my experience with Briana Michel handling our location needs has been the absolute best. She finds location that are new and not the same old locations exhausted in the Tampa Bay area by most locations’ experts. Not only are the location fresh and precise to the requested specs they often exceed the needs and wants for the location based on her many years being associated with the needs of all types of productions as it pertains to the locations. Also, her professionalism and attention to detail are impeccable not to mention always a good attitude concentrated on the good of the overall production and vibe which we’ve all seen what one bad attitude can do to the feel and performance of a shoot. Briana Michel will continue to be my first call for all of my production needs and she should be yours too."
