Mab wrote Millionaire about her boyfriend, poet Johnny Giles, and had worked with Lauren Orme previously on other projects. She asked Lauren if she would be interested in animating it, and Lauren said yes. The poem is in the form of a list, and every fact in it is true. As it is the first love poem Mab had ever written, Lauren chose a simple, doodle-in-a-schoolbook style, which suits the poem well. Their united aim was to demonstrate the simple, everyday intimacies of love – its tenderness, quirkiness, and humour. The poem was shortlisted for the Southbank Centre International Poetry Film Prize, and is Grand Jury Prize winner in a festival this year.
