Pepe Valencia is a terrific artist and a great person. I very much enjoyed working with him. He and his team conceptualized a lot of complex and important shots for Cosmos: A Space time Odyssey. I am looking forward to working with Pepe and Baraboom! again.

Pepe and his Baraboom team simply made my production possible. Professional. Detailed. Talented. And beyond pleasant to work with. I can't say enough about his energy, support and calm through the storm, except that I look forward do working with him again, and soon!
