Your production values are stellar.

It was a pleasure to work with Ash on a project at the National Motor Museum – a series of short films about the Holden ute. Not only did the final product exceed our expectations, Ash has provided excellent follow up and advice, going over and above to ensure that all our project goals were met.
Allison Russell (Senior Curator, National Motor Museum)
The Visionary Lights, was an exhibition with a film at its centrepiece that formed a feature of the visual art program for the OzAsia Festival. The film came to fruition over a very short time frame, satisfied all stakeholders and received high praise. The film was of a very high quality, informative, entertaining and engaging, it was shown on a continuous loop that attracted a wide audience. There never seemed a time of day when there was not somebody watching the film attentively. I have no reserves about recommending Ash Starkey for film based projects that require him to communicate a message and engage viewers. His enthusiasm, skills and professionalism would make him an ideal choice for a wide range of projects that require a film based outcome.
Maggie Fletcher (Visual Arts Coordinator, Adelaide Festival Centre)
We were impressed by the thorough and persistent way in which Ash pursued many avenues of historical information , photographs. etchings and the like to create a remarkable and interesting documentary, Paddle Steamer & Barge Building at Goolwa 1853 – 1914. Indeed, he unites the information, anecdotes , history and appropriate music so skilfully that the interest of the viewer is maintained and we have a valuable historical record.
Roly Bartlett OAM (Friends of the PS Oscar W)
We were very pleased with the film on shearing which Ash produced for us within a very short time frame. He captured appropriate footage to match our script, recorded voiceovers and incorporated historic footage to produce a short, informative, high quality product. We found Ash flexible and very easy to work with and have no hesitation in recommending his services.

It’s easy to tell that Ash started out as a stills photographer, because every frame is beautifully composed!
Doug Gordon (Electrotechnology Program Manager, Thebarton Senior College)
It is always a pleasure to work collaboratively with Ash. His professional stance is exemplary. I recommend him most highly both for the quality of his work and for an excellent way of working.
Angela Scarino (Assoc Prof, University of South Australia; Director, Research Centre for Languages & Cultures)
Ash skilfully used local volunteers, family members and our 130 year old heritage listed blacksmith shop to make an outstanding 10 minute film that has been very positively commented on. The effort he made to gather photographs, stories and a day of on site camera work to then edit it down to 10 minutes is testament to his skill as a historical cinematographer. I, our historical society and the local community have no hesitation in recommending Ash Starkey to make a film for them, he was a pleasure to work with.
Dr Bill Gransbury (Chairman, Angaston & Penrice Historical Society)
Working with Ash has been breeze, he is prompt, considerate and very thorough in his work. His strong work ethic and commitment to social justice issues is commendable.

Starkeyz videos exceeded our expectations and Ash was only too happy to deliver what we required and more, they have been a great promotional tool for our centre and our tours. Ash is professional and easy to get along with.
Craig Cooper & Paul Dixon (Living Kaurna Cultural Centre)
Working with Ash Starkey was an extremely valuable experience for me. Ash having a huge amount of experience in film making was able to guide the whole process and his skills and knowledge, created a valuable resource for our agency to work with. Ash was also friendly, enthusiastic and excited about the project, from the beginning to the end.
