Paul RonaldsCEO Save The Children Australia

I have known Donna, and Capitol Productions for more than 20 years working together both in Japan and here in Sydney on commercial production. So impressed was I with her professionalism, after working with her briefly in Japan in the ad agency world, that I engaged her to do production work and just as importantly education and training of my rather large number marketing staff at Nestle Australia. They felt confident when she was doing production work and empowered with the knowledge she passed on in training, and given the number of agencies, commercials and amount of money involved both were critical to excellent outcomes.
And it was always done professionally.... but with a special sparkle that is Donna which made her pleasant to deal with, always!

Ian AlwillExecutive Director Group Marketing, Nestle Australia 1996 - 2012

I was most impressed with the way you handled the filming on the northern motorway near Kaiapoi. Your behaviour was very professional and it was done in extreme difficult circumstances, during peak traffic.
