“Greg and his team at Cairns Film are insightful, organized, and professional. Designing projects with them was fun, and the outcome of my final film was better than I hoped for. I highly recommend him!

“Greg does great work! I worked with Greg on an educational science outreach production. Not only does the production look great, but in my experience he does just as good of a job of understanding his clients needs and message. The approach that Greg takes is one that is truly important when communicating science (along with the many other important topics covered with his work) to a broad audience.”
