From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Thank You Date: September 8, 2010 9:25:59 PM GMT-07:00 To: email@example.com Dear Tim,
Paul and I would like to let you know how much your involvement with the feature "Cathedral City" meant to us. And to remind you to please direct anyone our way who would like a referral. You were an absolute pleasure to both work with and get to know during the 28 day shoot.
Your knowledge and experience in all aspects of filmmaking made you a tremendous asset in so many ways. No task was too difficult or to tedious and you approached each new challenge with determination and a great enthusiasm for tackling any new experience. You handled any set back that may have arisen with ease and calm and went straight to work on solving the problem, turning every day into a triumph.
Always punctual, you arrived each morning with a smile and a contagious energy that made the film a joy for all who worked with you. We look forward to working with you on all our future projects.

To my unbelievable gaff and grip team, Tim, Karen, and Eric,
I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your hard work, dedication, and perhaps above all else, patience with me and my colleagues as we embarked on this journey of filmmaking over the past week and a half. There is no question in my mind that without your talent and efforts the production of this film would never have been as successful as it was. It probably wouldn't have come even close to wrapping quite frankly had it not been for your donation of time and energy.
I must be honest by sharing with you my fears and reservations I felt when I was told that I was being assigned a professional staff. A part of me was afraid that I would not represent myself well before a team of professionals who were expecting some kid DP with a lot to learn. I do have a lot to learn, and just in this film had learned quite a bit, but I hope that I carried myself professionally, and communicated properly to achieve the vision of this film. It was a great pleasure collaborating with all of you.
I will do my best to keep you posted on the progress of this film if you have any interest. I believe that the footage we rolled on was exactly what I had hoped to capture, and wouldn't have traded this experience for the world. There were certainly some hurdles encountered along the way, and I ask that you please believe me when I say that I was embarrassed at times that such rookie mistakes occurred, and that those mishaps are not as common as it may seem. Nonetheless, you stuck with us, and for that I owe a great deal to all of you.
Best of luck with your future projects, please stay in touch, and be well.

I’m writing this letter in appreciation of your fantastic job and help on our show at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix 11/21/08.
I appreciate the fact that you arrived at the venue on time with very short notice and were able to also find an assistant to help our lighting technician. It is indeed rare and fortunate for us that we came across your name and number for this event.
The nature of this show required everyone to be prompt and efficient at the load in and load out and it was a pleasant surprise to find you helpful and knowledgeable and willing to quickly dive-in.
We will defiantly be calling for your services again when Special Event Audio Services has another large show requiring professional technical assistance and labor in the Phoenix AZ area.

January 1, 2004 Dear Sir or Madam: I am very pleased to write this recommendation on behalf of Tim Mortimer. I brought Tim on to our production “Thanatos Road” in August of 2003 as both the 1st Assistant Camera Operator, as well as Gaffer. Over our three-month shoot, he has proven himself to be an indispensable asset to my crew. His duties included camera setup and placement, as well as assembling and maintaining the often-difficult lighting setups our intensive night shooting required. Tim works equally well independently as well as in our team setting. When either the DP or I gave Tim our lighting and camera requirements, he accomplished them in a timely and professional manner, even when he had no help. Tim possesses both a positive attitude, even on the days when nothing seemed to be going right. And on those long 13-hour shoots, he still kept optimistic. I also took notice during our shoot, of Tim’s ability to quickly pick up skills that were outside of his position. In closing I would say that Tim has exceeded my expectations as a crewperson, and I hope that others will be able to benefit from his knowledge and skills as my production has. I hope to work with Tim again soon. Please feel free to contact me regarding Tim’s performance during the making of our film. Sincerely, Edward Kishel Producer / Director Imperial Rabbit Films
