Your new movie Perverted
Desire - in a few words, what is it about?
short film is about a guy who lives isolated in his own world, not able to
connect with people. Isolation, loneliness and unfulfilled desires are its

sources of inspiration when writing Perverted
Desire resulted from a small idea that I suddenly had, like some of my other short
then I started to write a short script.
You've chosen to make Perverted
Desire a dialogue-free movie - why is that, and was it planned
like that from the get-go or did it only turn out that way only during
writing or maybe even during production?

movie be seen?
question is a bit difficult to answer because I donít know yet how or
where this movie will be released. Its duration is only around 10 minutes,
which means that it might come out with other short films or as an extra
at some point in time.
