Friends, Please forgive such belated thanks for all your hard work and hospitality. The record company was delighted with the results of our efforts and there are those who can not quite believe we accomplished so much in so little a time ("And that includes a national holiday" I like to quip). Most obviously, the array of locations we shot in and the cohesive narrative. I hope there will be other times, as I loved Tokyo and the Japanese were hospitable and gorgeous, often at the same time. Thanks again fellas. It was a week to remember. Yours, Rupert Jones (director of El Presidente / Turn This Thing Around)
