"I have worked with Werner over the last three years on a number of projects from 3D production to single and multi-camera shoots across a number of genres. His thorough understanding of technology and his ability to apply it, and deliver good results, has solidified our working relationship. I know I can trust Werner to come up with new ideas and execute them well, even under extreme and arduous conditions. His eagerness to learn is a huge strength. Being a shooter and stereographer who can also edit adds a dynamic element to his skill set as a filmmaker in this digital era." - Darren Putter - Producer
"I worked with Werner Maritz on location for Battleground: Rhino Wars, an Aquavision Production for Animal Planet. I was the Executive Producer of the 3 - part docuseries. Working with a large crew, I recognized Werner for his hard work and for being at the right place at the right time. Never getting in the way of filming and always willing to go the extra mile for the production. Werner was part of the bush crew that was filming on foot, both during the day and at night. He blend in well with the others. Everyone, on and off camera, found him a pleasure to be around. He is a hard working and dedicated team player. Also willing to work on his own, including driving through the night to bring fresh gear to the crews. I can confidently recommend Werner as a team player and as someone who can get the job done." - Maria Baltazzi - Sojourn INSPIRING. STORYTELLING. ADVENTURES.
"I met Werner last year while embarking on a 1000km journey trough South Africa. It didn't take me long to decide to ask him to join the team. Lucky for me he accepted. He is a man amongst men. Great integrity and pride in his work. He was a real asset to the film and I plan to finish the film with him. A fantastic eye and great technical skills, any project would be fortunate to work with him. I consider Werner a friend and will always be grateful, he was a big part of the film “Something that Matters”." - Steven Lyon - Photographer / Producer / Director
"Werner Maritz and I have worked together for about four years at Aquavision TV Productions in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was the cameraman on projects that I oversaw and his great work ethic and eye for detail and composition ensured that each project was delivered to the highest standard. I would highly recommend Werner for any project. He is talented and enthusiastic, as asset in the rather jaded world of production." - Elaine Dodge - Producer & Writer
"I found Werner to be a consistently reliable and conscientious cameraman with a good eye, who is particularly adept at working in the African bush veld. A most likable easy going fellow who is completely comfortable in the bush with a good understanding of it and its animals inhabitants and their behavior." - Greg Nelson - DOP / Producer
"Dealing with Werner on a one to one basis was fantastic as his calmness during a tight scheduled shoot made the shoot work. He always knew what the next step would be and when timing was short, he went the extra mile to make sure all possible angles were covered with the best possible result." - Marnus Rootbol - CEO - Walking for Lions
"There's a skill and sensitivity to capturing the beauty of nature and her animals at their best and most natural. This is certainly something that Werner Maritz has mastered. Something that he brings to the world." - Dawn Jorgensen - The Incidental Tourist
"What we appreciate in particular is Werner's ability to understand a brief and compliment it with his own experience-based input. We also greatly value his ethos, integrity, dedication and passion for the work he is involved in." - Petra Vandecasteele - Maniging Director - Kids of Nature
