It was an easy shot of Rocket sitting down, 1st with (Sean Gunn), (and) then nothing there, (and) took everything inside me not to collapse sobbing in place.
“Most of the last ten years of my life have been spent working (and) thinking about Guardians. I still have a long way ahead of me with VFX (and) editing, but it was still momentous for me.
“It’s pretty simple to explain to others how much I love this cast (and) this team. It’s harder to explain how much I love these characters – that I see them as parts of me – even (and) parts of those I love, (and) filming them, (and) writing their words, is one way to express that love.
“Again, I will continue to work with them over the next year until they come out, but filming that last shot reminded me of the warm impermanence of life (and) love, (and ) how this impermanence makes her so precious, so precious. , (and) is a good reason to be grateful for what I have right now.
“Anyway. The film crew also glued their handmade camera lens caps to the back of the slate for me, which matches the second photo. Lots of love to all of you.”
