Testimonials for Jeff Licence
“Jeff Licence, you have such a gift for capturing the beauty, essence, history and spirit of a place and a community.”
Sharon Solyma – Bond University
“Jeff is an incredibly creative individual who has natural ability and instinct for film making, particularly his documentary work. His knack for asking profound questions that yield insightful answers from almost anyone is a rare skill facilitated by his endearing personality. He is also a highly skilled educator, writer and generous contributor to his community.”
Rob Bare – Director of Guerrilla
Jeff designed and delivered workshops ideally suited to the ambition and mixed skills set of our team. He is a wonderful teacher and everyone came out of the experience with greater abilities, enthusiasm and confidence. His understanding of the place and importance of storytelling aligns with our own.
Rebecca Lamoin, Associate Director – Strategy Queensland Performing Arts Centre
“This particular video is our best performing video to date and I definitely attribute it to the skills I gained in Jeff’s workshop – a real confidence boost in terms of using an IPhone and IMovie to make quick engaging content to tell a story. I can’t wait to start interviewing people and incorporating a more human element into our future videos.”
Anita Lewis: Online Content Coordinator, Asia Pacific Design Library | State Library of Queensland
“Jeff’s clear instruction and skill and passion for the work enabled me to learn the art of film making in a really accessible way that I can definitely transfer into my working life. Thanks so much for a great day! Time to go buy a selfie stick… (never thought I’d say that!).”
Alison Burnley: Events/Project Officer | Partnerships State Library of Queensland
With Jeff’s help I feel that my interviewing and editing skills have developed con- siderably over a short period of time. What I personally found helpful was the fact that Jeff made himself available to any questions I had. Since that initial video with Jeff I have gone on to complete another 3 interview documentaries and am about to embark on my 4th. One of my interviews was picked up by the ABC News 24 TV. I have found Jeff is a very likeable person with a friendly attitude. He is very community minded and has no problem going out of his way to help people.
Heather Hayward – Community storyteller
Earlier this year I attended a course run by ABC Open Producer Jeff Licence. Jeff has the ability to encourage discussion within a group as well as face to face. He taught us to focus on relevant points to produce a better short movie script. His lectures over the period of the course about planning, camera angles, getting sufficient footage, and in particular ensuring good sound quality helped me in the production of a short movie about Australian Artist Robert Lovett. I found Jeff’s lecturing style engaging, encouraging and very informative. He has a thorough knowledge in the craft of movie making and the ability to pass this knowledge on.
Colin Usher – Filmmaker
“Tigermonkey Productions, proudly owned and operated by Jeff Licence have been an absolute joy to work with. From our initial brief and personal meetings, they listened and came back not only with a commercial proposal that improved on our initial thoughts, but also provided a professionally finished product that exceeded even our high expectations. Thank you for your listening, professionalism, advice, caring and concerned attitude throughout our dealings.”
“A truly professional film maker brings out the best credentials of their subjects that surprise even the subjects themselves. A rare ability is also to document critically yet with respect. Jeff Licence does all this and with a youthful curiosity about the world.”
Professor Philip Follent
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jeff Licence. His friendly, fun and professional advice and guidance was incredibly helpful in shaping my ideas for my video project. I found Jeff’s filming and editing work extremely professional and of great quality and I am extremely happy with the result.”
