Blake's a superbly creative producer/director with an instinctive feel for the best television and storytelling. He's a self-starter who's skilled in various genres of factual programme-making. He's also a pleasure to work with - flexible, enthusiastic, collaborative and brilliant with people.
Head of Topical Programmes, ITN Productions
I’d have no hesitation in recommending Blake for any television job that requires initiative, hard work and a clear understanding of what television’s all about.
Associate Producer/PresenterTime Team
Blake has exhibited a whole range of skills as Producer/ Director/Camera. As a Director, he has an outstanding ability to create a rapport with those in front of camera. In the series, Firefighters (6 x 30mins, BBC1 Scotland), a diverse range of characters confided in him in an extraordinarily engaging way. He is not a "shooting" Director, but a consummate cameraman with ability, rarely found, to edit in the camera. In Post Production he achieved an excellent balance of live action, jocularity and compassion. Combined with all these attributes, Blake is exceptionally hard working and committed. He could not be recommended highly enough.
