When I took the job on ‘Warbirds” I was going to help out a friend, make some extra cash on expendables,and just see what was happening with Louisianna filmwork. When I found out who my transpo coordinater was I almost backed out. Deep down I knew I was going for another reason that I would just have to figure out when I arrived. It didn’t take long. You sir are one of the finest artisans I’ve ever had the pleasure of working for and your duty to your craft is respected by those who understand. Thank you sir for the fond memories and please
Adolfo Bartoli’s cinematography is top notch (compared to his proficient but relatively flat work for a spate of shot on film direct to video films for Full Moon Pictures. (Amok Train” aka “Beyond the Door III” ).
