“Maxi kept us on schedule and on budget through weather delays, government red-tape snafus, internal strife and huge cross-border shipping challenges meantime always keeping cool, calm and focused. I have nothing but the highest regard for him and his crew. He has my highest recommendation as a Fixer / Production Service Company”
