"Tom Whitworth, Producer/Director"
Africa Post Office” is as clever and forward-thinking as Franki is. I cannot recommend them highly enough. You will never miss a deadline with Africa Post Office at the controls.
Collaboration is the key word here. What you get with Franki is the uncanny ability to discuss ideas and adapt, evolve and mould your project with you whilst still keeping an eye of the delivery date.
She and I have worked together across a plethora of formats for almost a decade, delivering multi award-winning broadcast documentary series’ such as “Tales from the Bush Larder” (Fox International Channels) and “The Fearless Chef” (National Geographic, Channel 4).
She never misses a beat, hence her receiving three editing awards (in LA, Romania and Venezuela) for her stellar work on the crime thriller “Poacher”, which she turned into a compelling and cinematic short film. Her efforts helped lead “Poacher" to success in Academy Award and Bafta Award recognized festivals across the globe.
"Bobby Dhillon, Film Director/DOP"
I have been working in the East Africa for the last 10 years and some of my best films have been produced there. It takes a great team to bring it all together on budget and on time!
The most talented and one of my favorite Editor’s of all time, not only in the region is the funky, Franki Ashiruka @ Africa Post Office. Fun, Feisty, Creative, dedicated and always pushing boundaries…
She won’t just do your edit but ask questions as to why!!! And how we can make it better. She is committed, passionate and hungry to bring something to the table on every job!
Set in a world class picturesque setting and all the latest facilities you look forward to go to work with Franki and her team….Every day @ Africa Post Office.
"Laurence Lurie, Producer/Director"
I have worked extensively with Franki Ashiruka on a 250 episode drama production.
Franki did an excellent job as HOD Post Production. She has excellent verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, can work independently, and is able to effectively multi-task to ensure that all her work is completed in a timely manner. She was always diligent, prompt and reliable, even under pressure.
Franki was always willing to offer her assistance and had an excellent rapport with the many constituents served by our office including clients, employees, suppliers, and other professional organizations.
Franki would be an asset to any production and I recommend her to anyone requiring competence in Post-Production.
"Tosh Gitonga, Award-winning Film Director"
As a director one of the most important people or partner is your editor. This is the person who is supposed to actually know you. To a point where they even know how you think.
I worked with Franki for the first time about 10 years ago! When I directed my first TV series. In fact my directorial Debut. Looking back that first time would have been a real disaster for me If I didn’t have Franki!
I keep saying this business is not about talent. Sure you need a bit of it. What’s most important is the work ethic. And APO have it. From the first moment your work gets to them you get the sense that you are in safe hands.
Over the years Franki has come to know me well. She knows why I shoot a shot. This is gold for any director. I worked with her on my latest film Disconnect and I have a bunch of stuff that I am working on now and your guess is as good as mine where that work is going!…
