Cast and Crew Quotes

"It's one hundred percent environmentally conscious, from the catering to the transportation. We had no cell phones, no internet. We were out in the middle of nowhere and that's a beautiful thing. I've never slept so good. It was so easy, it's frustrating that it's not done more often. I'm proud to be a part of something that's respectful."
- Amber Heard
