My admiration for Megan Griffiths is well known, and her assured and calm handling of this film only increased my respect for her. And despite tough schedules, big dreams and a lot of pressure, I’m so proud of the work our visual department did on this film.
After seeing it for the first time, I sent this note onto the camera and art department crews:
…having just seen Lucky Them where dreams about contrast, color, movement, and (most importantly) edit came true, I have to say, you all make a killer team, and you make damn fine looking movies.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everybody’s passion and commitment to making a beautiful image, and I’m stupid blessed work with such fine folk, because it doesn’t happen without people like you. Everybody gave some fantastic performances in technical brilliance, and some top-notch behind-the-scenes work to make it happen on a budget – it all added up to rave reviews from everyone, including yours truly who’s known to have been a serious pain-in-the-ass if it’s not perfect.
To the G&E – baller, hard-ass work went into this, and I know you each did the jobs of two men – without you, this movie would be a dark grey mess with some great ideas behind it.
