People of mention:

  • Aleeah Gabriel (actor) – An incredible person to work with, who has great acting ability (being able to switch into her character in a snap), but was also punctual and pleasant. She was cooperative with directions, but also put forward ideas and suggestions for collaboration

  • Ajay Bhalla (lighting, camera rig operator) – An incredible help on set and enjoyable to work with.
