This is the first film I made that I’d ever show anybody. I wrote it on a Monday, we shot it on Tuesday and it was finished on Wednesday. I grew the moustache on the Tuesday morning. That’s how professional I am. I just scrunched up my face and PUSHED that ‘tache out from under my nose. The process must have resembled a big, red basketball giving birth to a furry slug.
The film got shortlisted for the BBC Talent New Filmmaker’s Award in 2004. It didn’t win.
The moustache went on to present Top Gear in 2006.
