Personal Quote:

[on the award-winning Peter Gabriel: Sledgehammer (1986) pop video] Part of the brief in a way was to look like a fourteen-year-old kid had made it in their attic and in a way that was the way it ended up because of the speed that we did it at. It bridged the gap between pop and fine art and it changed the face of pop videos that, I think. I don't think that's overstating it, I think it did. See more »

Trivia:

In a radio interview, he said that Wallace's references to Wensleydale cheese in the film A Close Shave (1995) unintentionally saved a small British cheese maker from bankruptcy. Interest in the cheese was sparked by the film, and one of the few makers of that cheese suddenly found itself with numerous requests for the cheese, saving it from financial ruin. See more »
