Imagine there’s always a bunch of people behind those mirrors, if those rooms were to constitute our lives. Working it just to make us look our pretty best. . I remember the hard work that went in to create these visuals and bring Kenneth Brannagh’s vision to life.

So here’s to every technician on This film, thank you for your hard work and perseverance. I sure as s*** look good here, and you too.”
