The one thing about your stuff is that it’s always high end. Some other sites are really frustrating, they have a lot of stuff but it’s not always good, so you waste a lot of time wading through junk.

Lens Distortions has THE BEST cinematic tracks for documentary projects in my opinion. I’m regularly drawn to your tracks that have an inquisitive or magical quality to them.

Lens Distortions, for me, is a must because they have such unique stuff and they put a lot of effort into it. It’s definitely a quality over quantity kind of thing.
