We have just had the great pleasure of working with Melissa Brattoni in a series of challenging re-enactments for our recent special, "Captive" on 60 Minutes.
Of all the actors and extras I have worked with over the years, Melissa stood out as one of the very best.
Melissa played a backpacker.... lt was a difficult role she took on with relish and incredible attention to detail.
I must commend Melissa on her talent and unflinching professionalism in the face of some difficult conditions. Nothing was too much of a challenge for her. It was an absolute pleasure to work on this story with her.
I would heartily recommend Melissa and would jump at the chance to work with her again in the future.
- Garry McNab (Producer - 60 Minutes)

Melissa was an absolute asset to our production. She was incredibly invested in the shoot, turned up for costume fittings, supplied key wardrobe items and was friendly and respectful on set. Her communication has always been professional and direct. We thank you so much for your time on Skinford 2 and wish you all the best in the future!
- Natalie Verriest (Producer - Immortal Films)

Melissa is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was prompt and efficient and even stepped up into a bigger role with more dialogue with only moments notice. And also helped out as crew when her role was completed.
- Brendan Byrne (Director / Producer - Shadow Wolves Productions)

Melissa was fantastic to work with on set. She was super professional and reliable, great fun, and delivered a superb performance. Would work with Melissa again in a heartbeat!
