What real people say about working with us.
Covering the German election
Covering the German election as a non-German speaker, I needed a producer who was reliable, inventive and able to do much of the planning independently.
Christina was brilliant, organising two feature stories which met the brief.
Working with her in the field was a joy. Would highly recommend to other journalists looking for someone who ‘gets’ broadcast news.
Très professionelle, tout c’est très
Très professionelle, tout c’est très bien passé avec Christina en amont et pendant le tournage.
I was the associate producer and researcher for “How The Silk Road Made The World” from May 2017 to November 2017.
Our series involved shooting in Asia, Europe and China. We used interviewees, stunt artists and amateur actors to create the series.
We hired Tina to find and scout locations in Germany, as well as give prices for medieval re-enactment places in Germany. I found her via European contacts who recommended her.
Our team was very happy with Tina and we highly recommend her. She is a great communicator, prompt to reply to my many emails, efficient at getting me the details I needed and her written summaries for talent and location scouting were impressive.
We were happy with her work and NHNZ would hire her again.
A lot of initiative to come up with ideas
I have worked with Tina before (very recently in fact, just last month) and the experience was very positive. She is very positive and takes a lot of initiative to come up with ideas, and can anticipate production needs / problems before they arise
Highly capable & my strongest recommendation
Tina Naber worked for me, when needed, as an associate producer and line producer on my new feature length documentary. She scheduled and conducted interviews in German and English, chose locations, and arranged permits and other clearances. She also was instrumental in planning the budget and choosing and directing the DP’s and sound recordist in Germany. Tina met deadlines and was always cooperative, responsible, and knowledgeable. She can do a superb job directing a small crew and conducting interviews. You would be well-represented in all aspects of your shoot if you have Tina on board. Highly capable, she has my strongest recommendation. Among the films I produced was Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie, which won an Academy Award for best documentary feature.
Could not be happier
If you plan on filming in Germany, then Tina Naber should absolutely be your first phone call. Tina helped us through the entire process, pre-production and shoot days, and it could not have gone any smoother. Whatever ideas we threw at her, she was receptive, offered suggestions, and then made them a reality. Tina was quick with feedback and updates, so we always felt at ease. We could not be happier with our experience in Germany and that was all because of Tina. We would not hesitate to work with Tina and her team again.
I can recommend Tina as a producer – very efficient, helpful and calm. In fact I’m just speaking with her now about another production in Germany so I guess that backs up my recommendation.
I have worked very recently with Tina on a 2 day shoot in Munich which involved a lot of research and prep time. Although it was a very short project, I was very impressed with Tina. She was extremely helpful and resourceful, was quick to get us the things (and contributors) that we needed, she was great at negotiating locations fees for us and was very multi-skilled in helping us fix a range of different elements of the production. The crew loved her and they all got on very well.
The extra mile & very professional
Tina worked with us on a History Documentary. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. Tina’s English is excellent and great to talk to on the phone – no question was too much for her. We really had very little time, and she did an amazing job of sorting out all of the permissions and paperwork we needed for our shoot. As we had never been to Berlin she would send pictures and links to help us decide where we wanted to film, this was extremely helpful. Tina joined us on location for both of our filming days. She got on immediately with our team and presenter and was a joy to have around. Besides being very professional, acting as translator, and knowing her way around Berlin, she became one of the team. Tina definitely went the extra mile too….recommending places for lunch, carrying equipment and giving us her valuable input meant we had two very productive days….and fun too!
I’d say she worked with us rather than for us. Production is a team effort and we couldn’t have done our shows (which rated highly in Singapore) without Tina…. her research was fantastic, she was always on the ball and took a lot of initiative, and most importantly worked wonders with our time constraints!
We worked with Tina for a UK travel programme in Berlin. Tina was excellent at communicating with us throughout, was thorough with our permits and very hard working with a great knowledge of the city. Would certainly recommend her.
