Brilliant, thanks so much 🙂
A fun walk down memory lane. Thanks for the roto department props! Quite a bit of adrenaline went into pushing points on that show and fixing up those plates so they were usable – for sure!
Thankyou for the wonderful insight as always. 🙂
Had a question:
What is the course of action you would take if a situation like this (were you are asked to work extra hours/days when you know you are needed back home) arises now (assuming you are working for a production house).
