“Simon and Jason are a shot in the arm. They have the personality, taste, ambition and that relentless work ethic that helps great directors want to beat a path to the top. There is a definite flavor and a point of view that was immediately apparent to us all. They are on a very exciting and inspiring journey,” said SMUGGLER co-founder Brian Carmody.
A joint statement from Sondock and Davis read, “We’ve never been the kind of people to have long-winded explanations for why we do what we do. We’re interested in producing work that pushes creative boundaries alongside genuinely great people. SMUGGLER is the epitome of both.”
