#199 - back
sent from: London, UK. destination: Santa Monica, California, USA

My team keeps growing ~ the whole department in fact is a snapshot of today’s global visual effects industry. Here’s a list of everyone, their nationality, and in parentheses the country they came from to work on the film;

French (UK)
Scottish (UK)
Indian (Singapore)
Indian (Australia)
Italian (Italy)
English (UK)
Spanish (USA)
Canadian (Canada)
Italian (UK)
Swedish (Sweden)
American (Singapore)
Italian (Amsterdam, duh, Holland)
American (USA)
American (USA)
Indian (India)
Indian (USA)
