    I’ve worked with Justin a handful of times on low budget stuff like commercials and he’s a really smart, talented, friendly artist who knows how to command a team. He may seem a bit intense at first because he’s so quietly laconic but he’s actually a real great person to work who knows how to get the best out of his cast/crew.
    Also he’s really funny and can quote The Simpsons from here to Shelbyville and back again.
