Cast of Characters

The following folks have made this project what it is. Each has been a pleasure to work with and all are incredibly professional. The process is such, that I create a skeletal frame around which they can wrap themselves. It is almost magical how we captured each moment and harnessed their energies and talents. Many thanks to all of them.
