"David Knezz is a deft and innovative craftsman. He is a lateral thinker who thrives on the challenges of theatrical prop making and produces apposite, finely finished and distinct models, masks and special effects. It is so rewarding as a director to ask for something special and to be awestruck and inspired by the creative response that David brings to the final creation of a theatrical event. His contributions reflect his ability to absorb the qualities of a production, his recognition of the practical realties and his acknowledgement of the parameters, budget, staging and so on. He is an indefatigable enthusiast and has been a fine mentor for younger aspirants in his craft."
