“I actually got chills,” coordinating producer Tyson Oldroyd says in the empty theater just before the premiere.

“For me, it’s just kind of fun to put your work up there and have people … experience it,” says producer Heber Cannon. “I learn a lot about … how the audience reacts to a movie. ... It’s a learning experience for the next film.”
