Filmmaker’s statement

“It all began as a little musing, many moons ago, when I found a pair of mangled glasses on a frosty winter walk. There was something mysteriously intriguing about them.

Years later, through a series of both fortunate and less fortunate events, I was given the opportunity to turn that musing into a story. With the help of a small, but amazingly creative and ebullient team, Spectacular was brought to life.”
