A selection of testimonials for Justin's work in this field:

"Justin, you were one of the reasons I kept going. Your enthusiasm, incisive insight and sense of humour really lit up the room. You told it like it really is, and the stories you brought in are still in my head. Thanks again, pal. I'm now just about to make my second movie." - Bobby Stevenson, Writer

"Justin was by far the best tutor I had at film school. His passion for cinema was so infectious- it really gave me the confidence to pursue directing. Most importantly, unlike many of the tutors, Justin is a working director making brilliant films and was so open to sharing his work with us. He's, as they say in the industry - the real deal." - Jon Schey, Writer-Director

"Justin takes you as you are, and shows you your potential with enthusiasm, care, and most importantly, wit!" - Michelle Wallace Schofield, Artist and Writer

"I had the privilege of working with Justin on my feature film script Jimmy in Pink, which was released in 2013. Justin is incredibly talented and astute with a wealth of film knowledge. He gave clear and insightful guidance and has an intuitive sense of story." - Hanneke Schutte, Writer

"The most important thing I've learned from Justin is how to organise yourself in a creative process and how to let an idea that interests you slowly grow within yourself, by exploring it in every aspect, with patience." - Alexandru Potop, Writer.

"You didn't urge me to alter my style or turn my idea into something that misrepresented my skills. Your words of encouragement continue to motivate me as I try to break into the publishing industry. Watching your progress on your own film has been an inspiration, and I hope our paths cross again one day." - Aleshia Howell, Novelist.
