    — William Boyd

    [ Digital revolution ] only has allowed me to work faster, editing digitally, which I'm doing right now, a film on volcanoes. I can edit almost as fast as I'm thinking, editing with celluloid means always searching for this little reel of film, and number it, and scribble on it with some sort of pens, and gluing it together, and working on a flatbed. It's much, much slower.

    — Vincenzo Galilei

    I know this might sound a little cliche but, I feel like everybody is searching for the same thing, and that is truth.

    — Tyler Blackburn

How can you have a team without a name?
