Many people have asked me, what part of production do I like best, directing, writing, producing, or acting? … or even Post Production?? (the toughest part may I add).
My answer is always the same; I simply love being creative, and the challenge of making a movie come alive. Each one of those areas has it’s own set of challenges, and fun times of course. So I love them all individually, or collectively. I can either just do one facet, such as just direct on a project, just act, or even just write (which I have done several times) or all of them. I have been told by high level industry execs, that I have the skill of “50 guys”. I don’t know if I would agree, but maybe two or three guys lol. I just like to think of it as a way to get the job done, and help the team make a cool movie.
How much time you are willing to invest and learn those skills, and experience the ups and downs is what it boils down to. Becoming battle tested, and getting better at your craft. I would like to master all of them, and don’t mind doing just one of them, whatever the team needs me to do. It’s that simple.
See you at the movies!
