Interview Edward Tuckwell

What is your greatest achievement?
Apart from a couple of recent exhibtions in the US, the most significant achievement was quitting my job to pursue freelancing full-time, and surviving to tell the tale.

How would you describe your work/style to someone who hadn't seen it?
A phrase that has already been coined - “a fusion of film noir moodiness and geometric styling” - I think that sums it up pretty well.

What piece of advice would you give your 15 year old self?
Ignore advice.
When are you at your happiest? 
After I have come out of the cinema when a film has been really good, or strapped to a snowboard.

What is the worst job you have had?
I've worked on building sites and been a pot washer, but the worst was working as a waiter in a high end restaurant. When your being paid minimum wage, your boss is nuts, and the customers are snobs, its time to leave.

Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Regardless of time, probably Jimmy Stewart, and get Hitchcock to direct. On second thoughts, I would just ask them to make a better film together.
What is your karaoke song?
Panjabi MC - Mundian To Bach Ke *disclaimer* I’ve never performed this live.

What do you dislike most about popular culture?
That the digital world is slowly taking over and print is dying. Hopefully the overall quality in printed material will rise tho.

What is the greatest invention of all time?
Is electricity too obvious?  
If you didn't do what you do, what would you do?  Be an architect, or make films for a living as opposed to drawing them.
