Testimonials

"Michela helped RYOT build an extremely complex real-time performance pipeline. She and her team at MOD overcame a ton of hurdles to deliver this first-of-its-kind product. She always brought creative solves to the table and is truly one of the most technically knowledgeable virtual production directors I've worked with. It was a pleasure to have her on the team and couldn't recommend her and MOD more highly."
