TestimonialsPeople's experience working with Gil
On Making and teaching/presentation:
Gil Poznanski is a dedicated and highly skilled maker with a strong focus on community learning and skills development. His attitude towards innovation and technical inquiry make him an asset to any organisation looking to build a culture of technical innovation.
While working with Gil at City of Melbourne, Gil established one of the most comprehensive Maker Events I have ever seen as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week. This Mini Make Day event is a perfect example of Gil’s ability to establish and build a community of interest in technology and maker culture.Gil successfully delivered a broad range of public programs through City of Melbourne focused on creative skills development. As a team we delivered more than 200 events for more than 5000 members of the community and Gil was instrumental in organising and delivering workshops, events and maker programs.
Gil’s expertise in 3D printing helped me find my own way in the field. His clear, concise (and fun!) workshops at Docklands library provided everything I needed to know to start exploring 3D modelling and printing. Gil is an excellent teacher, and his willingness to support newcomers really made the experience a welcoming one.Emily Gornalle
Gil knows how to communicate to us all even having fun when we wouldn’t answer. He is a great person to have in the library as more libraries need someone like him to help the next generation of computer minds.John Htyu

Had a one on one with Gil as no one else turned up and Gil stepped up and did an amazing job. I’m glad I had this experience. Will be back with my son. Excellent teacher.Shannyn Long
Gil is the 21st Century renaissance man. Someone gifted with incredible creativity and the ability to make even the most desensitised hyperconnected people stop in awe by his use of technology to deliver spectacular experiences. Beyond technical prowess, Gil’s moral compass and desire to change the world for the better makes him someone you would certainly like to have around!Sergio Brodsky
Gil is an exceptional educator and I can’t speak highly enough of him. I engaged Gil to run a series of kids ‘build your own computer’ workshops and the combination of the magic of the technology and Gil’s energy, leadership and ability to inspire kids, meant we had a winning formula on our hands.
I highly recommend Gil for your next kids’ tech learning event – he’ll encourage your group of young people to learn about tech through play and experience – this truly is 21st-century learning.Kelly Rafferty
Gil was really nice and I could understand everything although being from a foreign country. I am very happy with the class and I can’t wait for the next ones. Thank you.Lluc Darder

On Filmmaking :
I worked closely with Gi Poznanski on a television drama pitch, and have found him an excellent and enthusiastic collaborator and a hard worker. He has extensive knowledge of TV and film production and a keen eye for screenplays and production realities. I would not hesitate to work with him again or to recommend him.Maurice Molyneaux

I have had the pleasure of working with Gil Poznanski several times over the last 17 years and on each occasion he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the project. Gil lives and breathes film-making and has an eye for capturing the finest detail, and is always passionate about the work and professional in his work ethic.Alex Kain
I strongly recommend Gil Poznanski for any job that requires quick thinking, great organizational skills and a pleasant demeanor when working with people.Gil juggled many special projects, and is extremely hard working and highly motivated. At first, many teachers resisted the idea of doing things differently, but Gil was so adept at communicating his vision that it was ultimately adopted and embraced. I wish all our contemporaries could have been as kind and friendly as Gil. Any company that hires Gil will find their money well spent.Kumari Bakhru
I hired Gil to modify and brand a number of videos for my website. His work was fast, efficient and cost effective. Gil is clearly an expert in his field, and very importantly, is personable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Gil.Gavin Queit
