“PAPER HEART” co-writer-director, Nicholas Jasenovec
[PREMIERE SCREENING: Saturday, Jan. 17, 8:00 pm — Racquet Club, Park City]
One of our goals while making Paper Heart was to establish a consistent reality since we would be combining a documentary on love with a loosely scripted love story. [Yi] Charlyne and I felt that most modern romantic films were very formulaic and unrealistic, but hoped that if an audience believed in what they were watching, they would be more affected by it. And with audiences being more familiar than ever with reality-based programming, we knew we had to do a great job to convince them there was no difference between our two stories. Or at least confuse them enough to the point where they weren’t sure what was what.
