Producer, cinematographer and editor Stacy Davidson added “this represents the first production of another director’s vision under the Odyssee Pictures label, and I couldn’t be more proud of what Larry and the cast and crew did with it. I’m just really excited to see Odyssee grow this way, and I’m anxious to see where we can take it from here.”
