"It is a pleasure working with a professional like Norman. He goes to the sky and gets precisely what I am looking for, plus more. I do not know how he does it!"
Jan De Bont
"To create the unique special effects for the Coca-Cola commercial, Digital Domain needed to start with great organic elements. That is precisely what Norman kent Productions provided us with. Director Jan De Bont, Visual Effects Supervisor Ray Giarratana and Norman collaborated to choreograph and execute some of the most amazing footage I have ever seen. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Norman and his crew again because, in my mind, they are the best!"
