Director Statement

I'm very proud of this project. From conception to completion, the whole journey was absolutely exhilarating. I wrote this film in dedication to those filmmakers who inspired me and continue to do so. There are lots of hidden nuances paying homage to my favorite directors and movies. I wanted this movie to have a unique visual style and substance that in my opinion only very few films have. I love movies from the 1950's especially film-noirs, they contain such unforgettable characters and plot-lines which are entertaining without having superheros or cgi. All the effects and choreography in 'Dirty Back Seat' are old school, from the prosthetics to the action sequences; everything is done in camera and created for real. For one shot where we see the main protagonist driving down a busy high street I was hanging off the edge of the taxi with one arm holding myself in and the camera in the other arm. I hope that you will enjoy this movie as much as I have enjoyed making it. Thank you very much.
