I actually cried when I watched the whole thing all the way through.  Love love love what you did!!
Totally means more to me than anyone else. I get that, but you made my life’s work as a father a masterpiece. It was compelling and real!  That is all I ever wanted. Thank you so so much.”

“The frenetic end of post was less frenetic because of Chris’ innate ability to calmly work with me as director enhancing my decisions. Through this collaboration, I had the space to meet and resolve (with his valuable input) challenging aesthetic and technical issues. The deadline was short and his informed suggestions provided options leading to a better project. Chris’ contributions were solid, invaluable and overall professional. I look forward to working with him in the future.”

“Chris, OMG I’m in tears! This is intense and brilliant! I don’t know what to say right now. I was actually a little too excited to watch it when i first got your email b/c I was afraid it might blow my mind. Thank you so much for digesting all this information and communicating it so well cinematically. The timing is perfect, esp. on the “cascading projections” line—you really nailed it, and you’ve really captured the most important aspects of my favorite videos. Many thanks—you’re an amazing filmmaker!”

“I worked as a cinematographer for Chris Toussaint on many of his films and videos. He was very professional in his approach to working with the crew and always had a pleasant way of communicating what he wanted to accomplish in every scene. He is very efficient, a great problem solver and always gets the job done no matter how challenging the circumstances. I’ve seen his completed projects and have to say that I was very proud to have been a part of them.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working several times with Chris especially on projects close to both of our hearts. He’s not only keenly self managed but he always works in different environments with the same calm demeanor. He’s always seeking projects that will better serve humanity through an enlightened global/local perspective. I’m always hoping he’ll invite me into more of that. I’ve come to consider Chris not only as a friend but also someone I can join with in order to do constructive and intelligently guided work.”
