More thank you’s… Chancler Haynes is an editing extraordinaire. Stephen Galloway and Spenser Theberge were my movement coaches and taught me how to smoke, slouch, walk and act like a toxic bro. David Lebensfeld and Grant Miller aced that VFX magic. Shout out to Rebecca Skinner for being the best executive producer a (wo)man could ask for. I can’t believe I get to work with these legends. Having a little moment over here 🥺💓
