And finally, we have a visual that goes along with it. It is a weird and wonderful trip through the mind of all the creative team behind it. There’s Guy Larsen of Penny4 on directing duties with Sammy Paul as 1st Assistant Director. There’s Steven Bridges and his beard. Ciaran O’Brien is the Director of Photography. And so many more.
