Bogdan is by far one of the most talented and creative video professionals I have had the pleasure to work with. He produced a masterpiece film for my company LoadMe. He had a real strong vision, passion and drive towards all ares of production as if it was his own.

He lives for creativity!
Sandu Barbu - Voice over artist, Director

Bogdan-Alexandru Zoicas LIVES for whatever you can connect with filming. He already has plentiful experience in film-making and developed a keen eye for details. I have known and worked with him for the past 4 years and I can say wholeheartedly that if you want a serious, dedicated and professional DOP, colorist or creative person to consult with in your production, he's the man for the job. He thinks outside the box and is ever improving, devouring whatever's new in his sphere of activity. His English is perfect and the technical knowledge is outstanding. He communicates as a professional and NEVER finishes something off if he "didn't squeeze the lemon all the way to the last drop" - his striving for perfection is the main quality why he should be in your project. I know. I've seen it time and again.

A professional asset
George Orbean, AC Member of RTV

Bogdan is a natural artist, gifted both with talent and creativity. You definitely want to work with him, as he is the best barometer for your capabilities of managing a creative professional. If nothing comes out of your head, Bogdan will give you back what you deserve: 0 from your mind, multiplied by 100. You can verbalize an idea and he will turn it into a splendid movie. He is a professional asset. Don't use him unless you aren't.
