“The team at Brian Leith Productions wish Steven Ballantyne and EPM ongoing success at their new Shanghai base.  We have worked closely with Steven over the last couple of years on our wildlife feature film Born in China for Disneynature.  Steven managed several extremely challenging and very lengthy remote location shoots in a thoroughly professional and impressive manner. 

Steven is very conscientious, safe and level headed.  He is a kind and respectful individual, and we would have no hesitation recommending Steven and EPM’s services to other producers.  We are looking forward to working with them again next time we film that part of the world.”

Mandy Leith, Managing Director (March 2016)
