PROFESSIONAL QUOTE

What I like it’s an atmosphere of camaraderie that there is, and that feels the effects in movies a lot. To Illumination MacGuff, we try to recreate a cocoon, in order to people feel good. And when we see them all together, having made movies like that, it is magnificent. You want to take a group to make a movie.
