"Lightning Strike Productions were great to work with in Palau. Their fixing services were crucial in securing important interviews and filming permits. Also their local knowledge of the country was valuable context as we reported/filmed on the ground. Would highly recommend!"

"ParableVR worked with Lightning Strike on a virtual reality film for The Economist about Palau’s coral reefs. From beginning to end they were a joy to work with and were key to the breathtaking VR footage that we eventually achieved. We would work with them again in a heartbeat."

"Richard was a great help when we were filming our Energizer commercial for the US. His knowledge of the local waters, flexibility and good humour were key to the success of our shoot. This becomes all the more remarkable when you consider the inevitable changes of plan that are forced on you by weather, the sea and most importantly, the marine life that we were there to capture."

Ben Roberts, Producer, Interrogate Agency. October 2010
