“Camilla is one of the few Producer/Directors I’ve hired who has always delivered on time, on budget and with the perfect product. She is collaborative, detail-oriented and hard-working. And she never fails. Ever.

Since I first contracted her for live action materials for the award-winning (and Emmy nominated) “Sid the Science Kid” I’ve hired her every time I need a field producer-director, and always with stellar results. She’s truly a one-stop “go-to” resource. I cannot wait to work with her again.”   –Christopher Plourde, Television Producer & Show Runner


“I know it sounds hyperbolic to say that Camilla is one of the best people I’ve ever worked with, but it’s true. She is collaborative, incredibly articulate, decisive, and highly organized. A team player who is never afraid to share her opinion and is willing to listen to those whose ideas differ from her own. Camilla has incredible leadership abilities, insights, and a strong work ethic that would be a gift in any organization.” — Laurie Bauman Arnold, Writer


“Professional, thorough, thoughtful, smart, supportive and kind are just some of the words I would use to describe Camilla Calamandrei. My recent experience working with her went smoothly and efficiently. She gave me just the right amount of guidance to help me realize my own vision. I could not have done my project without her, and I look forward to working again with her in the future.”     –Tara Allmen, MD    www.DrAllmen.com


“Camilla is a quick study, particularly gifted at creative development and highly skilled in directing/managing all phases of production, whatever the media (film, video, interactive). At Scholastic she created CD-ROMs that were much beloved by children, lauded by critics, and endorsed by educators. She travels easily between the worlds of children’s and adult media, able to create product that is meaningful to each distinct audience as needed. I recommend her highly.” –Peggy Intrator, IntratorAssociates
