Behind the Scenes at the Cannes Film Festival
How would you describe your short film?
Dark, funny and honest.
Bear is a follow-up to one of your previous works: Spider. What’s the connection between the two stories?
Bear continues following Jack (from Spider) but this time with his new girlfriend.
You started your career as a stuntman. What inspired you to start making short films?
I actually started making short films as a way to do stunts and get more stunt work. But I continued making film because I fell in love with filmmaking and storytelling.
What do you expect from the Cannes Film Festival?
I’m just really looking forward to showing the film to an audience and seeing fresh films and getting inspired to make more things.
What are your plans for the future? Do you plan to keep on doing shorts?
I’m writing a new feature film at the moment – so I am hoping to make that next. But yes I like making shorts. Some ideas and stories are just meant to be short.
