Got to make a video for the talented @mahalia and @riconasty who got to terrorise poor @adonisoholi.1 for just trying to live life #ballin in his #smarthome.

Ima live out in some cottage in the sticks for fear of this… wait.. I’m… already here.

Gotta give some major love to Melody for absolutely smashing it from concept through to delivery - living the #90s life again was just great, more space in the trouser dept and more realness; so thanks for bringing it back.

Special thanks also to Ramy for just beasting this as an Exec and 2nd Unit Director - this guy on your side is like 10 talented people in one.  

Olan it was our first time - it was great - thanks for stepping in and smashing it, look at that video we made man - it’s just lovely looking.

Also Meg on the edit wow - every nit-picking-gotta-say-something-anything person that watched it wept that day.  Feedback was so minimal I had to go find shit to do.  Meg ‘No Feedback Given’ Thorne. 

@spuddsmckenzie for just smashing the Washington DC shoot with Rico - you need a safe/talented pair of hands to just take care of business - he’s got them. 

Thanks to the Baskerville as well - the local Pub that fed us that day Thank you t’was delicious. #supportyourpub

And Kim J thanks for being an absolute dream of a Commissioner - smiling the whole way through and big thanks to everyone at Atlantic, so much love for this project.

And the rest of the crew all blessed - see below
