I found the main reason I use to Same Face really bad, was because I was so terrified of making a person who was not perfect. Anime same faces a lot, comics even tend to same face, and in movies, we tend to get only a few varying types of “Pretty People” that we’re suppose to aspire to. So it’s really terrifying to take a step out of one’s comfort zone and draw those things that the people surrounding us tells us aren’t pretty.
In real life, people are so varying and unique. I found the more I started drawing the things that I was afraid to draw before for fear of ugliness, the less and less I found those things ugly, and the more I just found everyone beautiful.
Of course, not everybody is going to agree with me here. But if you want to stop Same Facing, you should push the boundary of what’s beautiful.
Because really, it’s the differences in us that make us all gorgeous.
for all of those who have followed and supported this project, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. we could not have made this film with out and it brings us great pride to share it with everyone now.

I really hope you enjoy the film as much as I enjoyed being involved with it.
But please don’t post big chunks of my website to Tumblr without attributions, okay? I am a writer. My words are my life. Having them go around as public domain or “I dunno who wrote this, just somebody” hurts me, a lot. It says…
Planted school bus. On special occasions it’s filled with flammable materials and lit like a giant, mutant, olympic flame. Found at the International Car Forest of the Last Church, Goldfield, Nevada. 295-second exposure, lit with red and blue-set Protomachine flashlight. - Troy Paiva
