“I’m not a huge fan of romantic comedies but I like the idea of mixing genres. There is something about the Hollywood formula that feels a bit like a cliché. But what if a RomCom met a Shunga? So you have “Say Anything” with John Cusack playing Peter Gabriel’s music end with, not the standard falling-in-love kiss or caste, PG sex scene, but unsanitized sex with the covers off. (I actually like “Say Anything” BTW.) I wanted to make a scene where the characters meet, follow the RomCom routine, and end up listening to “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel while having sex in all its glory.”
Jeff’s shunga paintings are available on his site….!!
