Well, PHOSPHENE just had THE MOST satisfying loss in the history of time.

Our work on MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN lost to THE LION KING.

To be in that company is ridiculously amazing. No sore losers here.

Mazel to our amazing and giant team including (but not limited to) John Bair, Vance Miller, Steve Sullivan, Steven Weigle, Sebastian Romero, Beck Dunn, Christian Lowe, Scott Winston, Jose Marin Nate Brown and of course Mark Russell and Edward Norton. 🥂🍾
