What do professionals think?

Mike Diva

Director at SNL (New York)

Calvin’s like my go-to VFX wizard – a Swiss Army knife who always find a way to pull off whatever crazy thing I throw at him. He doesn’t just get the job done; he adds his own flair of style and humor to make it uniquely awesome. I know I can always count on him to take my ideas to the next level..

Josh Frackleton

Director (Los Angeles)

I've had the pleasure of working with Calvin on a dozen projects, and I'm constantly amazed at his ability to produce incredible work at blistering speeds.

He has a highly creative mind, and thrives in situations that require expressive, exciting and hyperbolic filmmaking. I love having Calvin on-set as a VFX supervisor, making sure everything we're capturing in-camera is correct for post.

In addition to being a great artist, Calvin is a highly-effective team leader, capable of managing entire VFX/3D teams.

Karl Richter

Director & Writer (Los Angeles)

Calvin is one of the most collaborative artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

We brought him on to a project that had insane deadlines asking way more than we should have (as usual) for hundreds of deliverables (God bless social media). We were doing long form commercials for one Client and every single project required VFX, while some required VFX on every single shot. That was outside of all of the end-graphics and title requirements, which, classically, changed at least ten times at the 11th hour on every single film.

Calvin lead his team not only to get every deliverable across the finish line on time, but with flying colors. His attention to detail is somewhat staggering given the variety of material we were creating (each film was unique) and he always offered up something that looked great, fulfilling the images in my head that exceeded my expectations.


Despite our needs and our Client’s needs, he found a way to problem-solve on everything while maintaining a never-ending level of patience required when it comes to the last crucial finishing steps.

The work we delivered blew away the Client, which in the end, is our primary goal.

It was my pleasure working alongside him and I would highly recommend Calvin and his team to anyone who needs a great creative collaborator and creative Producer, especially under severe time constraints.

Daniel Williams

Cinematographer (Los Angeles)

Calvin is a pretty magical dude. He’s always calm under pressure and cares more about doing a good job than anything else. He’s as humble as he is talented which is saying a lot. He always puts a smile on everyone’s face and is professional as hell. I love the guy.
