Brett Simms

Director And DP, Alkali Productions

Chris Layhe is a wealth of knowledge and extremely skilled in pre-production, production, and post-production. I have had the opportunity to work with Chris, and his company, CLAi, several times both as a client and as a shooter. 

Chris’s knowledge surpasses almost anyone I know. He is able to think on his feet and quickly solve problems in all aspects of production. CLAi is a true full service production house, able to take projects from conception to completion.

Chris is also an amazing Director of Photography who knows how to convey emotion through images, and the lighting design that goes into each shot. Chris has a terrific facility for all aspects of post-production. He has the ability to handle footage other production houses can’t. From editing to color to sound, Chris has the resources to get everything done in house.

I would recommend Chris (and CLAi) to anyone looking to produce high quality video content with someone who knows how to get things done quickly and painlessly.
