POPDUST interview with Isabella Wing-Davey (about "WAITING" and "The Rain Collector")

I spoke with Andrew Karpan from POPDUST about my 3 minute short film, "Waiting" which is now available online as well as casting, themes and my other work like "The Rain Collector".

"Her work is both impeccably produced and impeccably cast...[Wing-Davey has] "craft[ed] an immaculate filmic style, somewhere in that netherworld between Sofia Coppola's perfectly groomed costumes... and Wes Anderson's penchant for the pastels."

About WAITING: "Within three minutes, Wing-Davey is able to turn the energy of those moving parts into nothing short of a masterpiece of observation, the kind of space that immediately feels populated by real people."
