I really enjoy designing a characters world.  Every tiny detail.  What coffee they drink, how they wear their hair and how they live, everything…

The chances are that people all around you are up to something. And by that I don’t just mean cheating on their tax returns. They are creating, they are writing, they are shooting, they are planning and scheming and all that energy is well worth taping into.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed and intimidated?

You are not alone…

Living in LA we are surrounded by the movie business, and that can be intimidating for very independent filmmakers because, well, everyone is bigger than you.

Filming Man Eating Tree, 52 Films/52 Weeks, 2011

I’m the kind of person who can’t stop creating, even if I don’t write it all down and it stays in my head, which is actually more often than not come to think of it, I am always thinking about some new or old idea I have for a film.
