“Georgia is a filmmaker for the 21st century- she understands what value is, and is very good at getting every cent of the budget onscreen and in front of the audience. Her intuition, and objective viewpoint eschews ego and pandering, and is solely focused on bringing maximum value and profit to all the participants of a given production. In a more perfect world, she would be in major studio boardroom overseeing their production and post production output.”

Charles Maynes MPSE– Sound Designer/Re-Recording Engineer

“Absolutely outstanding Director that not only knows exactly what she wants to create but allows, and trusts , her actors to go out there an create it.”

Mike Beckingham – Actor, UK

“Georgia is a talented film professional and very inspiring to work with. Her ability to galvanize a team and push forward through the most difficult and arduous production schedules are nothing short of miraculous. Her directing work on the feature film Subconscious has been tireless and she has achieved so much from a small crew and limited production budget. Only her dynamism and enthusiasm could have seen this through to completion. She is also a very talented editor and 3d visual effects designer. I look forward to working with her again.”

Peter Barry – Director,  Little Green Shed, UK

“Georgia is a multi-talented, thorough and detailed producer, director and editor. She has vast knowledge and experience that she brings to all productions she is involved with, in addition to quick thinking and resourcefulness in a pinch. She is great to work with and offers solutions, options and results when addressing all variety of issues through pre-pro, production and post. I’m proud to have her as a colleague and friend and look forward to many years of collaboration on future projects.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Georgia Hilton on many occasions over the past ten years. She is a consummate professional with the ability to wear many hats during pre-production, production or post. Georgia brings a comfort level to a project: you know that if something urgently needs technical or creative attention, she will be instrumental in finding a solution. She has that rare combination of state of the art technical skills and understanding tied to a creative, curious nature. Finally, she has a wicked sense of humor, always an asset in this business . . .”

 Hal Rifkin– President, HM Rifkin Productions, NJ

“Georgia and her crew took on the massive job of creating a 5 channel surround sound action audio track for a 15 minute video we were producing for the Intrepid Museum. She did a superb job of taking our base track and then creating a full blown surround sound track with new sounds and effects that made the theater rumble as the jets flew over the screen. Over the years we’ve worked together on many other projects. I highly recommend Georgia.”

David Calderwood – President, Euro-Pacific Film & Video, NY
