Sean served as a production assistant on my short film, “The Northwoods Protocol”. Sean was able to juggle many duties, from set decoration to wrangling actors to grip work... to basically whatever was needed. Great thing about Sean is that he is himself a filmmaker, so he was able to often anticipate the needs of his colleagues, jumping in to help before anybody even asked. We were shooting with seven cameras on a closed set, so everything had to run smoothly, like clockwork. Sean was an integral part of that overall effort.
— Scott Stoddard - Director of "The Northwoods Protocol" (2007)
A pleasure to work with. Very enthusiastic, a hard worker and team player. Highly knowledgeable about film both from a technical and historical perspective. Excellent script coverage as he has great taste and a very firm grasp of the mechanics of storytelling.
— Casey Crowe managed Sean at Larger Than Life Productions, Universal Studios
