"When working with Paul you know you are in the hands of an absolute professional. I have worked on projects with him since 2014 and he has made numerous creative and impactful films for UNHCR both in the UK and on a variety of overseas missions for global stars including Cate Blanchett and Chris Martin.He has an excellent and strong editorial sense and always picks out the best ways to film and edit stories for the greatest impact. Paul is technically expert in both filming and editing and has had to make many films for us with fast turnarounds for news, documentary broadcast, presentations and social media/ online delivery. He has an excellent way of working with people from refugees to rockstars, always thoughtful, respectful and brilliant in sensitive filming conditions. He is utterly dependable, flexible and fast in the field and totally focussed and friendly both behind and in front of the camera and can lay his hands to all tasks including scripting, directing and production too. I wholeheartedly recommend him for any position that he is applying for. He is an excellent human being and am proud to have worked on so many projects together with Paul. "

" As a Production Manager working with BBC Music Television it has been my privilege to work with Paul Wu several times over the past ten years. Our department at the BBC employs Paul as a Producer/Director on documentary films which involves him preparing the original idea, researching and developing the proposal then planning the shooting style, writing the script and over-seeing the production through filming and editing to delivery plus quite often filming and editing the programme material himself too. Paul is the ultimate professional and a joy to work with. His calm temperament under pressure, his inventiveness, intelligence and flexibility in an ever-changing broadcast environment are second to none plus his intelligent and creative ideas, his technical abilities and his industry knowledge make him an incredibly exciting film-maker creating thoughtful and beautiful films. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul to you and please do let me know if you need any further information. "

"Paul and I worked together for five years at ActionAid, seeing through a wide variety of video work. We must have delivered over 200 online video stories in that time - as well as other formats! Paul is a natural storyteller, and can draw the best out of any subject. He has charmed everyone he's met in all corners of the globe and turned their extraordinary experiences into beautiful and moving films that trigger support, action and discussion. He's full of energy and ideas. Quite simply one of the best audiovisual storytellers working in the sector, with the high production values you'd expect of someone with an impressive range of broadcast work too. "

"Paul has the ability to bring stories to life in film with a rare authenticity that captures his subjects with ease to fully engage audiences in their narrative. I’ve worked with Paul for over five years and across often highly complex briefs, first at ActionAid and then Action for Children. The results always feel effortless and never fail to deliver highly compelling content to surprise, delight or bring forward the hard truths, with dignity."

"It is always a pleasure to work with Paul. We have worked together on several video projects, including creating a series of supporter case studies. He successfully captured the emotion in each of the individual’s stories and always pays attention to the details. Paul is enthusiastic and innovative, whilst remaining true to the Unicef brand. The whole process is seamless collaboration and we wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again. "

"I've just finished exec'ing a complex project with Paul in which he shot and edited every frame, set up all the filming single-handed, and did all the interviews himself. His shooting was first rate - nicely lit and imaginatively framed. He captured great sound too, often in difficult circumstances. He then turned all this material into a series of short and longer-form films entirely on his own, dealing sensitively with client and contributors. I've come away from the project very impressed indeed by Paul's technical capability, his organisational skill, his relationship management and, above all, his gift for film-making. He's a very accomplished P/D and one I'd be delighted to work with again. "

George Entwistle
BBC former Director General

"Working with Paul, you know your film is in safe hands. From concept to completion, Paul is full of ideas, enthusiasm and passion for every project. His creative and people skills are second to none and he works well with people at all levels, from CEOs to children - everyone has a great experience. Most importantly, you know the final film will be delivered on time, on brief and will be engaging and impactful. I can’t recommend him highly enough. "
