"San Diego Productions is one of the best production companies I have ever worked with - Rick really took ownership of the locations, transportation and permitting. He helped to make my shoot run so smoothly. The craft services was perfect, the RV was spacious and clean and Arturo, our RV driver was such an amazing worker. Arturo helped in any way that he could. Rick and Arturo were a pleasure to be around, and they really went above and beyond. The locations came out beautiful in our shots and everything was within budget - a producer's dream! A huge thanks again to Rick and his team."
