Credits and thats a wrap?

After going through the -surprisingly- long list of everyone who worked on our film, I was brought back to the first day of Compendium IV where we were all standing at the edge of this abyss ready to jump in, without a clue what we were getting ourselves into. Realizing just how many people put so much time and effort [...]

Mission Accomplished
