We are just finishing up our edit on the History Channel show that we
worked on with you and I was compelled to write to tell you how wonderful the footage looks.

The actors, the Props, the costumes are flawless down to the last detail. In our line of work we have the opportunity to collaborate with many companies on our re-enactments but I can honestly say I've never had a more positive experience or a more wonderful outcome than we had working with you.

Your dedication, professionalism and passion really show in the final product. Not to mention what a incredible asset and pleasure you and your team were to have on set."

Animax Films Pty Limited

What you and your team brought to this
production was nothing less than incredible, the accuracy at which
you recreated all elements of wardrobe, Props and film soldiers from
the period really made this production work...I can assure you that without you and your team, this
film would not be the outstanding film that it is.

Electric Pictures Pty Ltd

"Ian and his team have worked on three major television productions that Electric Pictures has produced: "Singapore 1942", "Desert War" and "The War That Changed Us".

All of these programmes are dramatised military history documentaries and all have been greatly enhanced by Sparkefilms expertise as costume designers.

They have a truly wonderful range of costumes in their collection and take great pride in making sure that when they dress actors for a period drama it not only looks but is totally authentic."
