Director's Reel

Director’s Reel

 

Whatever It takes to make it move

It’s never easy trying to explain to people what I do for a living. I am a photographer. I am also a filmmaker. But these two halves of my life occupy vastly different parts of my brain and require vastly different approaches to getting the job done. As a photographer, I shoot from the hip and trust my intuitions. I love surprises and I roll with the punches. I lose myself in the moment, and everything becomes a blur. As a director, I think and plan and think again, I break every choice down to their smallest movable units, and I check my math after every choice, just so my collaborators - the actors, the cinematographer, the stuntmen, and set designer, the composer - can lose themselves in the moment. Whatever it takes.
