Steve Berlin and Dave Bruzza Tour Catalinbread
Mike gave them the walkthrough. The tour usually starts with the front room where you’re likely to meet Clementine, shop dog. The heart and buzz of the work gets done in Production. The teams work like jelly, with QC, our quality assurance folks. The best folks in the business because at the end of the day, everyone wants to be here and loves doing it. We’re also creative folks and like to be inspired by other creative folks. What a groovy day!
Thanks for stopping by, Steve and Dave!
