      "The opportunity to write a letter of support for Burgandi Phoenix presents me with an enormous challenge. Simply, how to coherently and concisely express my admiration and respect for her diverse professional body of work? Suffice it to say that I am thrilled and honored to be asked to recommend her — which I do happily without reservation, and with the greatest affection. Burgandi joined my production of “American Girls” after a near exhausting search for finding the perfect young woman to portray “Britani”. This was perhaps the most complex role in the script as the character had many, many layers and required a level of acting skill and professionalism that many actors do not possess. Burgandi came in for the reading and blew us away from the moment my words left her mouth, the posture and stance she researched the role with – I knew I found my “Brittani”. She had true understanding and appreciation of the characters context; but also she added a bit more than what was on the page in an effort to make “Brittani” accessible and 'with something to say' to the audience. This was truly remarkable. This also spilled over into the production shoot. She was a true pleasure to work with. As you know making a feature film is never easy but Burgandi brought a light to the set in sometimes stressful situations. Her smile and laugh were infectious. Her professionalism and “Let’s rock this out and make something amazing” attitude is something to be admired. I count myself fortunate to have worked with her and look forward to seeing what she does in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly for more information on this wonderfully gifted woman. Eric Pereira Writer/Director of “American Girls” "
