“This gripping and historically detailed drama-documentary brilliantly recalled the violence and the valour of the suffrage movement…played by a terrific cast of actors, some of the most powerful moments of emotional connection come from their testimony”
***** The Guardian **** The Times
“The concept or story behind a shoot is the smallest and easiest part to do, the hardest is to make sure you have a great producer and an amazing casting director, because the film will live or die by your choice.We choose Nikki because she delivers on both every time. I cannot stress her importance to our reputation and quality.”
“Nikki you made what seemed a pretty impossible project actually happen. Despite the short timescale and with very difficult items to source your team handled every aspect professionally, calmly and on budget. Nothing was too much of an ask and all the hard-work and dedication to getting the job done truly showed. You made the whole experience truly enjoyable and stress-free. Can’t wait to work with you in the future.”
