“I’ve known David for over 10 years and he’s always come to meetings with a clear idea of what his companies needed. Sometimes it hasn't been easy to make a deal but if we could find common ground, then we’ve always been able to find a constructive way to make it happen. His professionalism has always been appreciated, not only by me, but also by the companies he’s worked at.”

- Jonathan Deckter, (President & COO), Voltage Pictures, Los Angeles

 

“David has great experience in sourcing projects, has close relationships with filmmakers, and at Gaumont we always valued his script analysis. However, David is a tough negotiator but always business affairs-driven, meaning he wanted the deals to happen. Last but not least, he is a great personality so connects to people easily.”

- Cécile Gaget, (Head of International Production and Distribution), Gaumont, Paris

 

"After working with David for nearly 10 years, his acquisition needs and understanding of the marketplace have helped inform the creative direction of our original productions. He's been an invaluable resource in Automatic's growth."

- Michael Lurie, (Managing Partner), Automatic Entertainment, Los Angeles

 

“David has been a colleague for many years now.  He’s very astute, with great taste in movies but also a terrific sense of the marketplace and the needs of specific distributors.  He’s a real pleasure always and I truly look forward to our meetings which are inevitably productive.  We don’t always make a deal, but I always learn something from David.”

- Charlotte Mickie, (President), Mongrel International, Toronto

 

“David is a highly skilled buyer with impeccable taste and a deep understanding of the international market place. It is always a pleasure to meet David at markets and get constructive feedback on our films. It is also good to be able to discuss the state of the business with such a knowledgeable industry player.”

- Caroline Couret-Delègue, Truffle Pictures, London

 

 “I had the chance to meet David more than ten years ago. If we started our business relationship as licensor/licensee, all the meetings we have had at market after market since have been based on humanity and trust. All the deals we had together, even if sometimes discussions have been tough, were made with honesty, fairness and efficiency.”

- Camille Neel (Head of International Sales), Le Pacte, Paris

 

“We worked together for various projects and through experience, I can say that he's one of the best buyers I've worked with.”

- Emico Kawai, (Head of International Sales), Nikkatsu Corporation, Tokyo
