“I made Perfect Worlds the time it needed to be and at 35 minutes, where every minute is precious in short film festivals, I have been amazed at Perfect Worlds getting selected at all but to have so many nominations in such a short period of time is truly fantastic. I am really proud of all the hard worked that everyone put in on the film and what we have achieved in bringing it to life and I’m looking forward to getting the feature off the ground next’
