” zack just seems to be give you much more freedom and flexibility. And you know, when he’s happy with something because he’ll say cut a certain way, you can see him, he doesn’t give you a whole lot of emotion, but he’ll look at you and he’ll like, shake his head, and you can tell when he’s really happy with something.

Do we need adjustments or anything?’ And he’s like, ‘ No, it’s perfect.”
