'Finding a shared language to describe what a film cue should sound like is notoriously tricky; Justine has the rare ability to make the dialogue between director and composer incredibly straightforward. On both films the turnaround from spotting session to final delivery was ridiculously tight; Justine not only delivered high quality scores on schedule but she also wrote and recorded two original songs specifically for the films.'

'Justine has been an invaluable instrument in my film making. Guiding my ideas from concepts, and helping me bring them to life. One of the greatest examples of our work together is my short film 12. The main character of the film was to be the music, which would take the audience on a spectrum of human emotions. Justine captured this with sheer brilliance. She’s a special talent, and one I hope to work with for the rest of my career.'

'Justine was involved in discussions of how to define the show from the very start, before we had even shot a frame – it was telling that the channel, who had been very nervous about having music at all, loved it instantly and had no notes.'
