Guillaume Arnoulet

Film Director & Editor​

"Sofiane knows how to adapt himself on a variety of projects, He takes them always to the next level with great expertise.

I'm looking forward for the next one”.

Sebastian Cort

Cinematographer

"I worked with Sofiane on a TV Pilot for Peter Feeney. He is one of the most generous people I know, not only he's an asset to every set, he has a cool calm attitude and always smiling. There was a scene with 30 actors. He had 16 radio mics all going off at the same time, I was really impressed and we never had to ‘wait on sound’. He is the first person I recommend to every production I get on to shoot."
