I studied film production at college and made short films with my best friend. In one of these films, I very much wanted to include a polar bear. She was adamant this couldn’t happen. I was adamant she wasn’t imaginative enough. Edinburgh Zoo was very close, and she had a car.
Okay, so that was a joke, but we could have used stock footage, someone in a polar bear suit, heck even a stuffed toy. Yeah it would have looked cheap, but we had zero budget, everything looked cheap.
Anyway, we didn’t have a polar bear. My publishing company is called You Can’t Have a Polar Bear as a reminder that anything is possible, if you have enough imagination, but it might look pretty shit if you can’t back your imagination up with money.
