At the time of filming Jacob Harbord was a student of Observational Documentary at Manchester University

"Patrick Hughes' painting in the British Library demands a double-take and I was taken aback the first time I strolled by - did that picture just move?"

This bizarre, paradoxical painting filled Jacob’s head with questions that he wanted to answer through this film. How does it work? Where did it come from? Who made it? In 'Reverse Your Perspective...' Harbord takes a tour of Patrick's studio and explores behind-the-scenes discovering the enigmatic charisma of a man revolutionizing ‘the picture’ as we know it.
