Behind the scenes

 “I loved some of Walter’s previous work and was really drawn to his unique sense of atmosphere. But I also wanted someone who could bring out the emotion in an interesting but not saccharine way. Also, his classical background brings a really strong range across something intimate and personal to something really grand and cinematic.”

“Ronaldo sucks you right in to his world today. His life may be one big Drake video, but you appreciate what it took for him to reach his childhood dream, and when it gets this close, the ego makes a little more sense.”
