“…it was hell. A very painful film to make with hard lessons learned, but a necessary one that has made me a stronger filmmaker. Film can be fun when all the elements are singing in harmony and elevating the material. That’s when its magic. A lot comes down to the choices you make, but ultimately it’s all about learning. You learn from your failures, not your successes.”
That is such a good question and a tough one. I would honestly be happiest in a small tight knit crew, where we each cared equally about achieving something special, but that’s not always possible or practical.

“You wanna know why most actors don’t make it? It’s because they’re boring, and they’re f***ing normal. I see all these CV’s of these guys emailing me, going you know please hire me or whatever, and their faces are boring, their backgrounds are boring, they’ve got nothing to say, they’ve got no heap of pain to transmute into an experience for an audience, whereas it’s the guy who’s got a heap of tattoos over his face – He goes in the consider pile.”
