What is your favourite British animation of all time?
I always loved very much the shortfilm “I’m Fine Thanks” by Eamonn O’Neill.
What’s the best thing about working in the industry?
It is a challenge to keep being pure, healthy and energetically working for your most desirable wish. But if you are able to go through loving yourself as the others, then truly it is good.
