    Pearly is a great storyteller, she has an eye for details. She was easy to communicate with and quick to solve the problems on the way. Her filming and editing skills are excellent, a great one-person team, which is rather useful in the world of observational documentaries. I look forward to working with Pearly on more stories in the future. - Zsuzsanna

    It was a pleasure to work with Pearly. The video and interviews delivered were of an exceptional quality, despite working in distinctly challenging circumstances. Pearly was highly responsive and had great ideas. Highly recommended!
