I've worked with Joe recently on a short that he was directing. First of all, Joe is a great person to just hang out with. You can see his passion flow when he is on set. He's got a great eye for directing, he doesn't rush a shot, and he welcomes opinions from everyone. I couldn't recommend anyone else!
