I really enjoyed the whole process of picking the pictures. I just came up with the story of it on the spot, when the pictures came through. I wanted it to be weird enough to be a short film… and it turned out great. – Jamie Foxx
I’m not at all surprised just how comfortable he is in the director’s chair. It makes perfect sense to me. He’s worked with some of the great artists of our time and plus, he’s just a guy who understands entertainment on every level. – Ron Howard
