imperfection

“I really wish Disney and Pixar would be more original with their characters, it’s not that they sometime use the same model for some characters, what bothers me is the lack of imperfections. I was born with different colored eyes and other children would make fun of me for something I couldn’t control so as a kid, I never had any princess to relate to because of my odd appearance. It just gets under my skin when characters still look perfect without any scars, different colored eyes or anything.”

“I just really wanna see a Disney princess with very noticeable imperfections, and how by the end of the film she finds ways to deal with what others think of her, and learn to love herself. She doesn’t need a prince. Maybe a princess with really bad acne, or facial hair, or scars. As someone who is very self conscious with the way I look, I think that a film like this will positively impact the audience and help them out.”

I think I am the kind of person who can often appreciate the imperfection in life. Well, I am quite easy to get upset. But then I always try to “look at the bright side”.

When shooting the impossible film, there are often some unexpected results. Sometimes part of the picture doesn’t get developed. Sometimes the colors are just weird. But I also think that’s something special and “organic” about it. The imperfection, the unexpected, the quirk.

The imperfection is part of the work. It’s the result of the process. It’s unique to the work. To get rid of the imperfection is to create another piece. But I bet the new piece will probably have a different imperfection.

Lucky for me, I often like the weird patch on my pictures.
