Jason Furnari – car photographer at www.jasonfurnari.com
“Toni Newman is a star. I have had the good fortune of working with dozens of top producers all over the world and without doubt, Toni really stands out as a shining light. Toni is able to recognise, understand and prepare for every detail and possible outcome on a photographic shoot, no matter how difficult or troublesome conditions may be… and as a location car photographer, we often work in extremes! With Toni producing, I am been able to do my job with ease and focus and I never doubt that we will get the job done in the best possible way. I thoroughly recommend Toni to anyone needing faultless production and boundless enthusiasm on their next job.”
Bruce Williams – Creative Director @ Cubed Communications (Ex CD @ Reality Group : Hummer & Playtex)
“If you want something done, get Toni to do it! Awesome in every respect, and dedicated to getting the best results in the time. Toni is not afraid to try new ways and methods to get what her clients want for their budget. For me, she helped make it look like we shot a HUMMER ad in Saudi Arabi, and had a golfer teeing off right into bass straight. She is an out and out professional who gets the best for her clients and the photographers she works for… and as far as organising everyone, getting permits, timelines, talent (often straight off the street!), and absolutely everything else ‘sorted’ for a photo or film shoot – she is incredible. If the devil is in the detail, Toni must live somewhere very close to hell! I have no hesitation in recommending her services, and always look forward to working with her.”
Dennis Marchese – ex Account Service @ Fabio Ongarato Design (Country Road Kids)
“Toni is a producer that not only does a great job, but is also always a pleasure to deal with it. Super efficient and organised, her attention to detail is second to none. Having worked with Toni across many projects, she never failed to deliver on brief, and given her unique approach and personality, I always look forward to working with her.”
Jamie MacFadyen – Photographer @ White Studios (GE Money, Crown, Australia Post)
“Toni is a consumate professional with the organisational skills of God on one of his/hers good days. Along with that comes a calm and grace that is not usually attached to someone that works under the title of producer. And to top it all off she is great fun to be around. Be careful though, once you have worked with Toni you will find it very difficult not to having her on board for every single thing you do.”
Marcus Johnson – Creative Director @ Ubu Communications (Regional Development Victoria tvc’s)
“Toni provided a superb set of television production skills on a demanding shoot across three locations in Victoria over a limited timeframe and to a strict budget. With only a small team, we achieved an outstanding result for our client the Victorian Government and exceeded their expectations in terms of what was delivered in terms of both quality and value for money.
This was the first time I had commissioned Toni and she proved to be a consummate professional, providing extraordinary detail and organisational capacity at every level. All facets of the production from start to finish were clearly communicated and the entire six-day shoot and post-production schedule ran like a Swiss watch.
Throughout, Toni was also great fun to be with and her engaging personality kept everyone relaxed but still focused on the job. I have no hesitation in recommending Toni for TV, film or audio productions.”
Emily Murray (ex Brand Manager at Crown Casino) – Casino ‘Signature’, ‘Grab for Cash’, ‘Chinese New Year’
“I’ve worked with many producers over the years, and I would have to say that Toni is certainly up there with the best. We have worked together on various shoots over the past two years whilst I have been in my role as Brand Manager at Crown Casino, and Toni has always been a consummate professional with a great attitude, fantastic organisational skills, but most of all great fun to work with.
I would highly recommend Toni to anyone looking to utilise her for her top-notch production skills.”
