"I have worked with Toby for a number of years and his talent for film making coupled with his kind, compassionate nature, offered Call The Midwife the perfect combination. He brings fresh ideas to the table and is always open to hearing other opinions, and taking direction.
His passion for visual storytelling is evident in everything he delivers.
I will always look forward to working with him in the future."
"When it comes to Cinematography there are lots that talk a good game, but Toby Moore really delivered on Sticks & Stones. He was calm and organised throughout, as well as exhibiting great skill and creativity. Toby was central to the success of Sticks & Stones, creating an unnerving world through light and camera craft, supporting those around him, communicating clearly with cast and crew and allowing space for the actors. It was a pleasure working with such a production-friendly Cinematographer and I would welcome the opportunity to do so again."
"I've worked with Toby many times. He always delivers great visuals, with a real empathy for story and emotion. His technical knowledge is remarkable. So much so it means you can concentrate solely on the most important thing... Storytelling."
"Toby brings enough energy to the party to power the whole camera and lighting department. His passion, enthusiasm and work ethic is the signature of a man who loves his job. He has a lot of experience and technical knowledge and I have always found him collaborative, supportive, professional and sensitive to the material.
In the typical filming situation, he is totally committed to getting the very best result within the time frame. Where things don’t always go as planned, Toby will adapt and where necessary embrace and work the compromise. I think he is incapable of doing less than his very best for any project, but he never forgets he is working for the Director.
His lighting is beautiful - and best of all - he’s quick.
As Director you feel that he’s completely on your side."
Call The Midwife & Last Tango In Halifax
"Over the years, I’ve compiled the list of people that I want with me in the trenches. Making it on to that list requires a delicate balance of talent, skill, temperament and personality. Toby’s been on that list for well over a decade.
Whether it was in the subway tunnels in Bulgaria, or the deserts of Qatar, Toby demonstrated over and over again that not only does he have an amazing eye and feel for the image, the story and staging, but he can think quickly on his feet, is totally engaged and finds brilliant creative solutions even under pressure – and all with a wicked and unsinkable sense of humor. A rare symbiosis happens, with both of us ultimately doing our jobs better.
I would work with Toby any time, any place, on any film, under any circumstances."
A Good Day to Die Hard & 12 Monkeys
"I first met Toby when he was DOP on The Halcyon (Left Bank Pictures for ITV). It was a real pleasure working with him and his natural talent shines on every single frame. Toby is a real team player, quick at adapting, and he strives to make everything look great. He worked well at taking on the shows already set look and actually improving on it. When the chips are down (and the schedule screwed) Toby can work at speed and still deliver quality. I really look forward to working with him again."
"He's a wonderful, creative DOP. Happy to make the best of tight schedules and tough budgets, he's incredibly supportive of those less experienced than himself and always remains positive and can do. He’s a real pleasure to work with."
"The atmosphere is a beautiful blend of intimacy and purpose. The pool of light that Toby achieves reflects off the costumes, and bathes the image like a wonderful painting. The effect is deeply moving."
"Toby is as much a part of the Call The Midwife family as the cast members you see on screen. His care, good humour and expertise are an essential element of our success.
We couldn't be more proud of him and his work."
