“ I really appreciate all the time and planning you put into this for IMAX and all I can say is it paid off. I will never forget my boss doing a song and dance in an apron and bandana-priceless. I guarantee that IMAX will be calling on you for future work.”

Sandie Green

Manager, Sales Planning IMAX Corporation
