Quotes

“...I think it’s amazing, the film is wonderful, because it represents so many people, who don’t know they’re represented.”

-Whoopi Goldberg, Q&A at Tribeca 2019, NY

 

“...It’s as witty and provocative a psychological study as Pixar’s “Inside Out” or the best works of Charlie Kaufman, leading to one of the most ingeniously crafted and achingly poignant sex scenes ever put on film...”

-Matt Fagerholm for RogerEbert.com

 

“This film was beautiful in every way. I found myself completely engrossed with the characters and the drama that played out. I think that the 1st act and setup were perfect, I felt completely on the same page as the lead character Chris and found myself rooting for him throughout. I believe that the filmmakers used every square inch of the animation medium to help us see inside the mind of a person and how thatperson can affect those around him. Really great work.”

-Justin Copeland, jury statement, Salute Your Shorts Film Festival, LA

 

“...Mind My Mind is filled to the brim with hopefulness and possibility, its creativity and intelligence radiating from every cell of the film’s 2D hand-drawn animation, changing color schemes, expressive and  downright emotional lighting, varied yet always quite perfect pacing, and an original score that pops and pulsates with electricity and imagination...”

-Richard Propes for The Independent Critic

 

“The jury thought that Mind My Mind was a thoughtful, moving and funny film about love, relationships and sexuality. During our conversation, the jurors were all struck by how effectively the short was paced, how honestly it treated its characters and of course how beautiful the animation was. In a short amount of time, you created such rich characters with deeply felt emotional stakes. We loved the film and that is why I am happy to report that it is also the Winner of Best Animated Short for the 2020 Fargo Film Festival”

–Jury statement, Fargo Film Festival, North Dakota

Endorsements

“‘Mind My Mind’ is a highly original animation that portrays the experience of an autistic young man as he navigates starting a romantic relationship and coping with the challenges of conversation and social interaction. The film has a beautiful message: be yourself, and celebrate the many positive qualities of being autistic. The animation team are to be congratulated for their insight into how to convey what goes on inside the mind of an autistic person during everyday decision-making, including dealing with the stresses that arise from ambiguity and sensory overload. It is encouraging that autistic viewers themselves have endorsed this film as a way of helping others to understand their experience.”

–Professor Simon Baron-Cohen
Director, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University

 

“‘Mind My Mind’ offers us a way to literally see and experience how autism characteristics play their role in flirting, romantic relationships and sexuality. The movie is not only visually and auditory appealing; it offers a realistic insight in how social, communicative and sensory aspects related to autism influence interactions in daily lives, in a positive and respectful way. I think this movie can help the general and professional community to get a better understanding of adolescents and adults with autism and encourage autistic people to share how they experience the world, sexuality and relationships. I recommend this movie for everyone. Note for the sensory sensitive people among us: there is some overstimulation experienced and expressed in the movie. Be prepared.”

–Dr. Jeroen Dewinter
Clinical psychologist and researcher, GGzE & Tilburg University

 

“Honestly, the most true to life depiction of high functioning autism I’ve seen in animation or any other popular media to date. Watching this movie gave me the feeling it wasn’t created out of awareness but out of a deep understanding of the subject matter. The people who made this movie cared. I couldn’t have asked for more. A must-watch.”
