“Working with Maria Krangel was an absolute joy. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and is fantastic at thinking outside the box to find creative solutions and new ideas. I cannot recommend her enough!”.Lance B. Witmer, Writer / Director– Valor Films
“I met Maria on set of the film Opposite Actions in 2017. This was for a film contest and we had 168 hours to create a story and tell it cinematically – not an easy feat. Not having known her prior to the shoot, Maria’s work ethic and attention to detail was what made her stand out. She was always working on something, never idle, focused on the task at hand as soon as she stepped foot on the set. With a minimal budget and little time, she had to make sure every scene design was prepared beforehand and did it with grace. We also didn’t have the crew a normal film set would have, so she had to do most of the work by herself. She did a remarkable job, especially considering the tight time circumstances. I would work with Maria again because she is very serious about her craft, she’s disciplined, and also a joy to be around on set.”.Joe Coffey / Actor
