  • What a treat to be included in such a rockstar group of filmmakers. Our expectations were exceeded in every way and we walked away with an award which was the cherry on top! Fred and his team know how to throw a party and I walked away with a new, lifelong collaborator in Director-Trixie Ayson. All in all, it was such a win for my team! Lauri Levenfeld and AgentC team
