======BEGIN TRANSCRIPTION======

Oh, gee, wow. This movie was quite a beast to make. We did it, and the thing what I had, was so much, was so great that everyone was just really, totally there and supportive. I mean, I was really into Ang and the beautiful world that we created. It was like one challenge, when you're a cinematographer and there's one thing, when you have your eyes and just kind of go up and up and up and you just kind reach this thing. They get really excited, there's exciting scenes for me that I love, like the candles and the things that we did that was nuts. But it was really great. And I'd like to thank everyone that made this thing totally possible, the Academy, Fox, and oh my God I can't even speak – I know wrap up now. I'd like to thank my wife, my daughters up there. Everyone, thank you so much.
