IT chapter 2 was an 86-day roller coaster ride. Never had so much fun making movies as this one . I had a relentless and inspired crew who believed in this adventure as much as i did and a cast that put their heart and soul behind every second of performance. A huge thank you to all of them and also to my producer and sister @barbaramus who dealt with all the shit that a production like this has reserved for producers. And last but not least , the fans who day by day boosted our spirits by reminding us how much this story means to them. Thank you and Love to you all /// la filmacion de IT 2 fue una paliza de 86 dias pero nunca me divertí tanto haciendo una peli . Gracias al incansable equipo y al elenco por creer en la visión y ponerle el alma y el corazón a cada dia de rodaje. Gracias a mi hermana @barbaramus por el trabajo inmenso que conlleva producir una peli como esta ; y por ultimo a los fans que vienen bancando con tanta pasión esta segunda parte. Gracias a todos y prepárense para flotar de nuevo #itchapter2
