Quote by the Director

"I remember, in Picture Perfect—my first short, about a man obsessed with pornography and the effects of media on his personal life—I used humour and the silent-movie motif to tell the tale and ask who is culpable. Kind of uncomfortable stuff. Yet, many men told me after they screened the film that it didn't make them question themselves until the next day because it was so funny. Which is exactly what I hoped for, that kind of resonance."
