The professor has become a liability. [MUSIC] Well I'm not very technically a students person but it was my first time many being around the drone and dealing with them and of course I was amazed. And we actually used the drones in two way. We use them on camera to be [UNKNOWN] prop that's chasing Robert Langdon through this 16th century garden, but we also used it as a camera platform. And so we had [UNKNOWN] drones. And then to be digitally more sophisticated, there were times when we simply couldn't shoot with the drone. In the shot. So we would used the drone to shoot the shot and digitally put in a drone. So, you know, it was a very high tech scene in every way. [MUSIC] Well I absolutely did because Dante. [MUSIC] Inventing a new language. He was applying a lot of things that he felt. Even petty grievances to this greater idea of good and evil. And he defined for western culture, hell. And then, you know, [UNKNOWN] working from Dante's writing gave us really the first word. I mean, it's like a horror movie. Those images are absolutely shocking, and we read them in detail. They're everything that you come to expect to be startled by in a cool, cutting-edge horror film. So, Dante's a genius. Those They are geniuses, and this is the story in fact I think about 48 who are coming on kind of a coalition force dealing with this vacuum that is being left by the society because they don't know how to deal with overpopulation issue. And that's what geniuses do. They identify a vacuum. App I mean run to it. And it's up to the society to help it find the ultimate choices that it can be made in terms of addressing those problems.
