What was your standout moment of 2011?

Definitely the first time I saw Submarine at the Toronto Film Festival. There were lots of agents patting me on the back and all that sort of stuff. But I realised life had really changed when I couldn’t play my Xbox as much. That was a genuine low point.

Is there anything in 2012 you’re most looking forward to?

I have a film coming out called Comes A Bright Day, which is like my follow-up to Submarine. It’s about a kid from London who doesn’t take many chances, but he takes the chance to ask this girl out in a jewellery store, and then a robbery happens. I also want to meet Eminem.

Are there three things you most want to achieve in 2012?

Win an award. Earn a million pounds. And meet Eminem. Actually, scratch the award — I want to release a record.

Do you have any resolutions?

Play more Xbox. Chill out a bit more. I haven’t been overworking, but this industry makes you paranoid about how you look in public. Also, hang out with mates back home.

Do you think British film is breaking boundaries?

I do, yeah. This has been a really good year for British film, with films such as Joe Cornish’s Attack The Block. I think our style of comedy is so unique. And with Richard [Ayoade, director of Submarine], he made that film his own. I’d love to work with Shane Meadows. I’d have to learn a northern accent.
