Says Adrian Bosich, managing partner, AIRBAG: "Peter's talent is infused in every pixel of the screen. The amount of control he has in capturing performance is so strong, it has an effortless quality."

Says Martin Box, producer: "I've been fortunate enough to work with and have followed Peter's career closely over the last 10 years, and have always been impressed with his attention to detail and film-craft. He also brings a wonderful charm and dry sense of humour to his work on screen and behind the camera."
