'I’m most interested in stories that have an emotional depth and humanity at their core. These tend to be the types of films I really like to watch myself. As animation takes so long to do, it’s hard to keep the enthusiasm for a story and to carry that through a whole production – I need some sort of connection to the story to keep me engaged. The films I’ve made are drawn from a combination of my own experiences and feelings or from those I have observed or talked about with others.'Interview excerpt VIA
