Russell is very hard-working and reliable taking his deadlines seriously and meeting them without fault. Russell is an accomplished and skilled editor. He follows processes diligently and is well organised. He is also a team player and gets on well with everybody. Russell has also played a role in mentoring trainee producers and taken on additional roles on the show where necessary including field director, cameraman and insert producer. Russell produced several inserts for the programme independently and his delivered product was always of a high standard.

Megan Emmett
Senior line producer 50|50

Russell is a hard working, ambitious, talented young man. Working as an insert director and editor on Flash - a local celebrity entertainment show on SABC 3, Russell has shown willingness to be a team player and his eagerness to help wherever he can made him an integral part of the Flash team.
His role as both insert director and editor was invaluable as we depended on him to not only have an acute understanding of the show, but be able to direct the insert shoots with the foresight to be able to edit them within the very strict creative criteria set for Flash.

Rhea Holdstock
Producer Flash Season 2

He is familiar with both Avid and Final Cut Pro edit systems, and was responsible for editing, supervising final mix, and deliverables on several of our TV series. He supervised workflow from media capture to final delivery, ensuring timeous delivery of all episodes with their Final Control paperwork.  Russell is extremely dedicated, loyal and hardworking. He is patient, detailed and meticulous and takes ownership of whatever projects he works on.  I have no hesitation recommending Russell as an outstanding editor and wish him well for his career going forward.
