I’ve loved the @OnePerfectShot Twitter account since Geoff began it way back when. A blast watching @rejects build it with films of all kinds and cultures. Working on this for TV with my pal Bruce and @ARRAYNow has been so fun. A film geek’s dream! Coming to @hbomax in 2021. https://t.co/haD3KiNSr3
