Tomorrow we wrap ...

I can't believe how fast the Material movie shoot has gone by! It has been such an incredible journey, and tomorrow, the last day of production is going to be an emotional day.

We have a 3 month edit ahead of us, and then, God willing, the film will be put out there for all to enjoy. I am confident that something good is coming, but I am praying that it is more than good. In the arts world good is not good enough - it needs to be great!

If the energy and vibe amongst the cast and crew is anything to go by then we are on the right track. Craig, Riaad, Vincent, Robbie, Allison, and the rest of the team have demonstrated incredible patience and humility - it has been a blessed journey and a real privilege to have been a part of this adventure.

Riaad is an international sensation just waiting to happen and Vincent is a gentleman like none other. And as for Craig, our partner and film making leader, what an incredible talent and brilliant human being - he kept his cool and was graceful, even when the pressure was peaking. He knew exactly what he was doing and he was 10 steps ahead all the time.

The key measure of success is sustenance. I am confident that a real team is forming here, that will be ready for another adventure should Material hit the mark. Please God it does!

It's amazing how spot-on you are! And Craig indeed is smiling, and just cool, in every one of those photos you posted.
