“You know, when you see yourself on a big screen, I tend to watch from behind my hands. There is absolutely the regret. You always get that at the end of every project. I’m endlessly disappointed, which is what propels me into the next project, probably, not to repair the damage but to kind of hopefully keep developing. Otherwise there’s no reason to keep doing it, is there?”   [insp.]

Our 2016 predictions!

Here we all are in the new year! Who knows what the future will hold? We’ve got some ideas:

Sea otters will remain the undisputed furry-weight champions of the world.

Nudibranchs will release a musical gastropodcast.

Gotham Aquarium will give rise to an aquatic vigilante.

Whatever the case, we can’t wait to sea what the year has in shore. Happy New Year everyone!
