What are your ambitions with your project?
My intention with this short film is to shed light on the issue of cyberbullying, which deserves more attention due to its evolving nature. I aim to do so in a light and comedic manner.

Additionally, I went through a period of struggle as a screenwriter before shooting the short. Shooting this movie proved to be an empowering experience, and the success of the short gave me the confidence to believe in my own ideas and follow through with them.

Tell us something about your shooting? What pleasantly surprised you?
I was pleased to discover that everyone was just as involved and ambitious as I am. Then again, I chose the team, so I suppose I selected people who resembled me.

The next morning, as we returned the materials, I looked up and saw a coffee shop named 'Jade' right in front of me. At that moment, the title of the short film became 'Mission Jade.' I couldn't help but think it was a sign that I was onto something good. And during this time, there were many coincidences like that.

When I received the first version of the movie's edit, my nephew was sitting next to me. He insisted on watching the movie with me, even though I told him it was in French and he's Danish. after watching it he said that "even if it was short, it was so good that it felt like a long movie." :)))

For what group of spectators is your film targeted?

Why should distributors buy your film?
My movie is both enjoyable and efficient, addressing the serious issue of cyberbullying, which is a growing problem worldwide. In the United States, a staggering 41% of the adult population has experienced cyberbullying, yet catfishing is not considered a crime. Therefore, I created this movie to shed light on this important issue. Additionally, the movie is only 5 minutes long, but during those 5 minutes, I hope the audience will have fun.

In short, I hope to address an important issue with a light and comedic tone.
