TESTIMONIALS:

 

Fizzing with ideas and a strong sense of personal style, Perlmutter is an auteur to follow.

– David Rowan, Editor, WIRED

 

Jacob’s always been able to tell a story with whatever happens to be lying at his feet. Frankly, if he were deposited on some barren rock, I reckon he’d soon be crafting comic books from pebbles and ash. Whatever he does in the future, I’ll be watching.”

– Alex Miller, Global Head of Content, VICE

 

Capture[s] the fantastic and the ordinary everyday events that make up life

– Dazed Digital

 

I was very impressed by Jacob Perlmutter’s presentation of the story of ‘French Exchange’. This is a narrative which goes the distance, seething with emotional and sexual subtext.

– Stephen Jeffreys, Playwright and Screenwriter

 

I have every confidence they will succeed in making [French Exchange] an exciting and provocative movie

– Sandy Lieberson, Producer

 

Someone so strong in his own vision, whilst naturally being of a disposition to appreciate others.

– George MacKay, Actor

 

I worked with Jacob on ‘French Exchange’ and we had a lot of fun. It was a truthful and very funny piece. It was the kind of job that left me ‘wanting more’.

– Alison Steadman, Actress

 

Jacob’s storytelling is visual and dynamic. Classic, yet original.”

– Roger Pratt BSC, Cinematographer

 

Jacob has an artist’s sensibility and a punter’s sense of fun. He combines wonderful visual storytelling with sharply observed characters and sparky dialogue. No mean feat for someone so young.

– Richard Holmes, Producer
