I’ve always been more interested in the practical side of filmmaking, and I got very interested learning how to make motion pictures. I started doing all these short films of people working in the craft, and that was my first experience with the craft. I liked that there was an acknowledgement that there was nothing special or special-looking about some of the people who made movies. They were doing it because they enjoyed it, just like you or I might. That just got my attention.
You are the director of a new film called ‘A Few Good Men.’ What are your personal favorite films for a young fan to follow?
This movie is really different because I didn’t want it to be a kids’ story. I wanted it to be real – something that a kid – like me – would look forward to and be inspired from. My main focus is on making really serious, serious films, in which I really don’t want children to be a part. I don’t want to make them feel they are being exploited.
Have you ever been a father’s boy?
I was in my teenage years when I first became involved in acting, which made me a role model to many kids around me. A lot of the kids who were in film schools when I was growing up were involved in acting, but I was doing so well that I never became a role model to other kids. I wanted to be a role model to young filmmakers. The other kids in the movies that I was involved in, who weren’t acting, were really great and had a great time. They weren’t like kids I saw in a movie theater. To me as an adult, I was very grateful that I could just get out there and do it and be successful. I never really had any concerns about this. I have three daughters, so there are always those times.
What inspired you to make this film?
One of the things I was most disappointed by in the first few years of my career was that not all the filmmakers out there were coming at their films from their own unique ideas. I really just wanted to be a part of a group of filmmakers. This happened through the Internet – we got into a very strong friendship on the Internet, because my movie was very much a collaboration and I was a director who was doing everything on my own. I think having a community of people who are looking for things that I’ve done is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever been able to experience. There
