Nigel Lambe, Chief Executive, Sussex Innovation.

We selected APNTV following a formal tender process, to produce a series of 8 TV shows for our Innovation Masterclass Series showcasing some the most innovative companies from around Sussex and the expertise of Sussex Innovation and the University of Sussex Business School. Andy and his team guided us throughout the 6 month long process, helping us to develop the key content, scheduling, filming on location, studio filming, right through to post production and delivery of the series to a high standard and even coming in under budget. Having never undertaken a project like this before, we were incredibly pleased to have the expertise of Andy and his team to guide us through the process from start to finish. We were incredibly pleased with the outcome and will look forward to working with APNTV again.

Sean Mahoney, BITETV.

Andy at APNTV has recently produced a number of high end videos for BITETV that have seen his expertise come to the fore. His professionalism and reliability in overseeing multi camera, live mixing and streaming assignments have delivered productions of the highest quality.

Darren Styles OBE, Managing Director Stream Publishing, Attitude Magazine.

We have been delighted, over an extended period, to work with Andy and his team at APNTV. He and his team work absolutely to a brief, however challenging, and deliver first-rate programming of the highest quality on time, every time. They are easy to work with and we are pleased to have them as part of our extended team.

Felicity Beckett, Picturehouse Cinemas.

I have worked with Andy on 3 Sundance Film Festival: London Events. The remit includes filming over long, action-packed days whilst navigating large crowds, multiple locations and a broad range of activities including red carpet, one-to-one interviews, Q&As, masterclasses, awards, parties, etc... to create Sundance Institute approved dailies. Andy has proved to be a consummate professional with a wealth of experience which is invaluable when having to make quick, reactive decisions about what to shoot. He has excellent equipment and a calm, helpful disposition completely enhanced by a passion for what he does.

Alfie Ordinary, Cabaret Artist.

Andy and the team at APNTV were an absolute dream to work with. It was my first time producing and hosting a chat show and Andy went above and beyond to make sure I was prepared. He guided me before, during and after the shoot and James' skills and patience with editing made the whole thing so easy and enjoyable. The final product is great quality and everything I could have hoped for.

Maya Unnithan, CORTH, University of Sussex.

I am writing to commend Andy Nicholls and the APNTV team for their professional and good quality short overview film introducing CORTH, a research centre for Cultures of Reproduction, Technologies and Health based in the School of Global Studies at the University of Sussex. Andy and his team are flexible, accommodating, and easy to work with. Andy provides clear instructions and good advice and support. He is excellent on meeting deadlines. It was a pleasure to work with him during the pandemic, and what was a difficult period for filming. We are happy to have been able to complete the film in time and embed this as an informational tool within our centre website.

Aristea Markantoni, SPRU, University of Sussex.

At the University of Sussex Business School we have worked with Andy and APNTV on many occasions (high level United Nations workshop in London, week long academic training with worldwide policy civil servants on campus), public engagement workshop in Hove, during important research conferences and workshops. I cannot commend enough the professionalism, punctuality, flexibility, focus to detail tactful and discreet contact with guests by Andy and team, and the wonderful collaboration, whether filming an event, interviewing high profile stakeholders, editing videos and producing high quality end product. We would highly recommend Andy and APNTV to undertake any filming work and turn it into an exciting experience.

Nathan Oxley, IDS, University of Sussex.

We hired APNTV to record a set of short interviews during an event in central Brighton. Andy's team were great to work with. They quickly understood the brief, and communicated clearly about what to expect and what we needed. They were efficient and professional in filming on the day, found a great spot to do the recording, and delivered a high quality set of short videos afterwards. Andy was very responsive and helpful throughout the process.

David Cuff, former Channel Director at Latest TV.

It was a real pleasure to work with Andy Nicholls who is highly skilled technically; an excellent DoP and Producer. Andy helped enormously in the set up of the digital Studio; helping in establishing the workflow for recording and broadcasting. Andy also established the highly cost effective live Broadcast links into the studio via the internet. Andy can successfully manage complex live multi-cam production, long form and short form video to very high standards.
