"Working with Bill’s team at Distant Future was a very professional and rewarding experience. They got the brief from the off and clearly planned out a roadmap of how they could handle the job. Lauren’s animations were on the mark with every iteration, adding flair and imagination along the way. Great guys to deal with and I highly recommend them."
