Allon Wechsler (Line Producer)
I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all the time, effort and understanding you brought to the Nokia shoot. It wasn't easy, the demands of the job snowballed and the resources stayed exactly the same. The cut wouldn't have looked like anything at all if you and your team(s) hadn't made such an amazing effort and managed to be charming and good-natured all the while.
David Masters (Director)
Thank you so much for looking after Paul and crew whilst they were in Moscow.
The shoot was a success and Paul really enjoyed working with you guys.
It was a fantastic shoot. Thank you and your crew for all your help.
Moscow sounds like such fascinating place to visit.
We had a great time in Moscow and I really enjoyed working with you. Everything went smoothly and even at the last minute we could arrange things. You were always there to help us and it made things a lot easier.
Thank you for the three months we worked together. It was a difficult program with lot of changes and we were happy that we could make those changes.
A fantastic crew and equipment you assembled. It was such a wonderful experience to work at such a distant frontier with so much history and have everything we wanted to work and go as smoothly as it did.
In my life's journey I do wish I would have the opportunity to return, if not I will always put in a good word for you to handle anything for any future productions.
A big Russian THANK YOU to all of you for your contribution in Moscow to the Transformers 3 "global junket." The movie opened today with the biggest box office opening of 2011. So I feel like we all did our job helping to get the TF3 word out there. It was a lot of hard work but I think overall a great success. Thanks for making it a great show!!

In my opinion, from the moment I contacted you I have experienced very professional yet flexible attitudes and insights regarding my requests.
I must also compliment the selection of crew, and the crew themselves which were very hard-working, experienced people with a pleasant way of interacting. Cameraman was very resourceful in providing me just the right footage, when my insight at the end of the day was not as sharp anymore. I would like to emphasize the equipment selection was exactly what I am used to working with, a high-end camera which fit the production completely in the matter of image quality.
Thank you again for your professionalism, your quick response and involvement. I’m looking forward to us meeting and cooperating again soon!
Producer | Director
It was pleasure working with you and your crew. Looking forward to the future challenges. You made it clear that working in Russia (at least in Moscow) is not only possible but also pleasant.
Maria a big thank you to you and all the Maria Team. Your efforts where so much appreciated and a good job done. I am sincerely hoping that I get to come back to work with you all again in Moscow :)
Best wishes + Kind regards.
Thanks again for all your help and I will happily recommend your services to anyone looking for help with Russian production services.
Our reputation as a global agency is only as good as our work. So we aim high and work only with the best. Thanks to Marsha and her team, our client was extremely impressed and told us that the end result exceeded all their expectations.
Maria's extensive experience working with international clients and knowledge of the advertising industry was an enormous asset in interpreting the brief from a local perspective as well as assembling the best crew for the job. Maria’s can do attitude and professionalism made shooting in Moscow an incredibly easy process any agency can only hope for. If you need further confirmation of Marsha's ability please call me
None of this could have happened without all your hard work, enthusiasm and dedication. Not to mention professionalism. We can't thank you enough - WELL DONE! Thank you for your incredible footage and for making such a wonderful and memorable film.
Michaela and the Starbucks Team
I'm really pleased that the filming went well, depsite the room you were given - thank you so much for making it look as good as possible and for arranging everything your end. We have just got around to looking at the interviews that you shot and they are fine. Thanks very much.
Director | Producer
Thank you so much for saving us today, I have told to our "key players" in this series about the value you bring to us. I dont know what we would have done without you."
I have never worked with a more competent, reliable person than Maria.
Maria was great, very professional, took care of everything and got us out of some very tough jams.
She worked on the series "MonsterQuest" for me, got us out of many troubles, worked hard, extremely resourceful, pleasant to work with, what can I say?, hire her. You’re lucky you found her.
An excellent service. Next time we're in Moscow we will definitely use your expertise again.
Thank you for all your help in Russia, much appreciated.
President and Executive Producer
Just a few words about Maria. She was head of TV Production at Ogilvy Moscow while I was ECD of that agency. I was impressed by her no-nonsense approach, her forward thinking and her realistic frame of mind when she handled projects. All of which comes from the fact that she has many years of experience. Quite what is the nature of what you may be asking her to do I have no idea but whatever it is I'm sure she will handle it well, given her attention to detail. As a final testament I have since started my own agency here in Moscow - Umbrella - and it is to Maria that I turn when we have a TV commercial to produce.
We loved sharing the experience of shooting the REWE Group corporate film with you. The client really likes video and is absolutely satisfied with the result.
Concerning your work everything went well. Thanks for all !
If clients talk to you they will know you are honest.
We appreciated how easy you made navigating the city for us. The studio was perfect, the production went smoothly and we greatly appreciated the approach that you took with us. We felt as though we left Moscow understanding the city better because you were with us and showed us the beauty and the soul of the city. We enjoyed your company as well as your production skills and I would highly recommend you to anyone heading to Moscow and working there.
