The multi-talented filmmaker says the Kenyan artists he has worked with offer support to each other even on short notice.
“Kenyan artists I have worked with are determined and hardworking. I have never had a dull moment on set, think of this, you are on Arrow Bwoy's shoot and KRG passes by, the results are always amazing,” Hoechlin said.
