"I have known Andre since he was in high school at the New York Film Academy's Summer Filmmaking Workshop at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Even then Andre was ambitious, serious and committed to learning all that her could do to be successful. Through the years he has shown himself to be committed to hard work and mastering the mechanics of the medium."
- Booker T. Mattison, Award Winning Director of The Gilded Six Bits
"When I think of integrity, kindness, and professionalism, I think of Andre' Joseph. I first met Andre' back in 2008 year when he cast me as a mouthy waitress in his film, 'Priceless', along with actor, Robert Clohessy. The challenges that go along with an indie film, did not limit Andre. His ability to get things done with a calm, kind professional nature made Andre's film set an enjoyable experience. I have the upmost respect for Andre' and always look forward to being part of anything he is creating."
- Lisa Regina, Actress & Acting Coach
"Andre is a fantastic Director. He has talent beyond belief for someone so young and just starting out. I saw his gifts as an Actress and as part of the Industry. He guides the actors to act out of truth and purpose. He welcomes new actors with grace and intelligence.

I'm proud to say both movies have been well received on the film festival circuit. We shot the feature in 9 days. That can only be accomplished if everyone is working together in perfect synch.

You want good people around you."

"I was one of the lucky ones who got to work with André Joseph on the movie "Tempted" and never had so much fun in my life. As a director he was extremely clear on what he wanted, but yet so open minded to ideas. He made sure everyone that was working with him was taken care of, and comfortable. His professionalism towards the cast and crew was always at the perfect level. If you ever have the chance to work with him, do not pass it up because he is not only fantastic to work for, he is going places! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you, André!"

It was one of the most self gratifying moments in my career where I was allowed artistic freedom that I have not experienced in recent memory. As a performer, I can only hope to work with him again in the future projects so that hopefully I can have the same experience that I was allowed in this last project that I cannot wait to see."
