A big personal thank you to the incredibly talented production team that were monumental for the film's success. The production and post-production team consisted of both University of Aberdeen Alumni and the University of Greenwich film students, as well as, external experts in the film and TV industry that showcased that through teamwork, hard work and commitment anything is achievable."
