While we were still studying in Arnhem at Rijn IJssel back in 2016, we’ve got to meet Buddy Wakefield. A creative soul that was trying to inspire us to do better than we thought we could. He said we should always strive to create a Netflix worthy video. After the production he was very happy with our creation. I quoted his reaction underneath the video.
Man, y’all did such an incredible job on this. Thank you for the work that went into making this. It’s not missed on me. When it came out in 2016 I really enjoyed it and posted it, but I was moving so fast on tour and other projects that I didn’t have time to watch it over and over and appreciate the details, then it fell from my focus. I’m just now revisiting it and remembering how much I love it, and watching every detail. If this is the kind of videos you’re making in school, then I can hardly wait to see what you do in the future. And everybody knows, the future is now.Buddy Wakefield
