James Watkins – Director/Writer ‘McMafia’
“Nela worked with us on McMafia and was incredibly helpful liaising both with the Russian actors and the Russian unit in a wide variety of roles, including translation, pronunciation and local detail. She worked very closely with the actor Merab Ninidze and I know he found her support invaluable.”
Tobias Hussey – Writer/Creator ‘Big Guns’
“Working with Nela was a dream. It’s not often you work with a dialect consultant and coach that commits so much to the detail – above and beyond. Our actors now have a new skill and we have characters that are truly believable. I can’t recommend Nela enough!”
Nada Ryan – Actress ‘Big Guns’
“During a film project Nela was an enormous help to me when I had to learn Russian dialogue from scratch and sound like a native, despite never having spoken Russian before in my life. Among her many beneficial qualities she was patient, thorough, incredibly supportive and helped me achieve the desired results in a short amount of time. Thank you Nela.”
Jahmai Maasai – Actor ‘Big Guns’
“Working with Nela allowed me to take my Russian dialect to a whole new level. Nela’s expertise on Russian dialects/accents and the Russian language as a whole, surpasses anyone who I have ever worked with. Her understanding of colloquial, formal and spoken varieties of Russian brought real authenticity to my character, helping me to find subtle nuances in the way my character expressed himself and communicated.
Alongside this, Nela was highly professional, great to work with and made sure that myself and other members of the cast could speak clearly, confidently and most importantly, believably!”
Evgeni Golan – Actor ‘McMafia’
С Нелой мы познакомились на проекте МакМафия (БиБиСи 1), и поскольку на тот момент я не очень хорошо говорил по-английски, она мне очень помогла с переводом диалогов и обращения к режиссеру, а также режиссера и съемочной группы ко мне.
Нела настоящий профессионал, она в совершенстве владеет несколькими языками. Она общительная и очень правильно и грамотно делает свою работу.
Я очень рад знакомству с таким интересным человеком J
